I’m the type of person who prioritizes travel over everything else. In every opportunity that I get, I always make sure to put it on my savings and ‘travel’ budget. I rarely shop (I’m also trying to live minimally), and pampering sessions were a leisure that I don’t often get. So when I received an invite from Nailaholics, I didn’t hesitate to say yes and grab the opportunity to relax and be a girl even for a bit.
When I was in college, manicure and pedicure were something that I would religiously do twice a month. I’d make sure to allot some time for myself amidst all the dance training, org activities, theater productions, and academics, among many others. When I graduated and started working, I found myself spending more time at work that I’ve almost forgotten how it feels like to relax. It wasn’t until lately when I become more aware of how ‘too much productivity’ was damaging myself that I vow to take the time to take care of myself. I think grabbing this opportunity was unconsciously my first step to taking more care of myself, more than anything else.
MY NAILAHOLICS EXPERIENCE
During my visit at Nailaholics, I was treated with a foot spa and a regular manicure-pedicure session. It’s been a while since I last had a foot massage, and I am extremely grateful for being able to spend some time for myself. It was my first time to try Nailaholics’ service, and despite having a technician who was a bit grumpy (maybe she was tired LOL), the transaction went pretty smoothly. The ambiance was nice and homey, and I wouldn’t mind going back to get my nails done next time. I had my treatment at Fisher Mall, but since it’s a bit far from where I work and live (I only went there because I had to go somewhere in Tomas Morato), I might visit them some other time. Care to come with me? 🙂
Nailaholics’ rates are pretty at standard with those that you’d usually see in the malls. The services that I availed were Serene Island Manicure (P190) and Palm Beach Pedicure (P230). They also have other treatments and services like Nail Extensions, Waxing (comes with a hand or foot spa!), and Massage Therapy. You can check their complete rates and services by clicking here!
I know they have pretty reasonable rates, but who wouldn’t want a FREE treatment from them, right? If you’re itching to try their service (or if you just need some tender loving care for your nails), you can visit any of their branches nationwide on October 17 from 10:00AM-12:00NN to celebrate the #NationalPamperingDay! You’ll get to enjoy a relaxing manicure and stress-relieving hand massage all for FREE. Better mark those calendars and set aside some time for yourself.
I know that “me time” can sound a bit of an indulgence, and at these challenging times where it feels like our value is quantified through productivity, I guess there’s really nothing wrong with giving yourself a moment to breathe. Besides, how can you churn out quality work if you don’t pause and recharge, right?
