I Like: Luxe Nail Lounge

I have a thing for pedicures. Ever since I jammed my toenail two years ago, I've been religiously visiting pedicure places around our area for maintenance. So you see, it's not really because I'm kikay, I just had to HIDE the poor dead toe under nail polish! And because I'm a cheaposaurus, I'm fine with pedicures at low-end salons. I mean, c'mon, most nail spas cost about P300 for a simple pedi! That's like two Big Mac meals already! LOL

Then a couple of months ago, I had another toenail emergency which required extra TLC and urgent repairing. The day after the accident, I went to Galleria to do my usual oculars and I came across Luxe Nail Lounge, an uber posh mani-pedi haven located at the lower-ground level.

The sofa. I know you're lovin' it!

I was instantly drawn by their Victorian interiors and very relaxing ambiance. It's soo chic! After checking their price list, I got more excited! Their Express Pedicure costs only P180! Pwedeeee.

My couch.

I was asked to take a seat in the comfy couch and was warmly greeted by my nail doctor, Precy. First thing I told her: "Ate, may malaking crack yung toenail ko, patay na ba? At parang umuuga na yung buong kuko. Buhay pa naman diba? Diba atee?" Didn't mean to scare her or anything, I was just really paranoid. LOL

Fortunately, my cracked toenail was still fixable...and ALIVE! *sigh of relief*

So, let me now show you how Luxe nail doctors do their thang!

Step 1: Foot bath

After the foot bath, Precy cleaned, cut, and shaped my toenails. No photos of the whole process though. I was so engrossed with the magazines that I actually forgot! My bad!

Step 5: Base coat
Look at the toenail! It's fixed! Ain't Precy the greatest? Haha.

Step 6: Nail Polish
I chose the Hard as Nails line from Sally Hansen in a purply shade.
They actually carry a lot of brands -- OPI, Orly, Essie, Revlon, and even Chanel.

Step 7: Air dry. This takes about 5 minutes.

Step 8: Machine dry! Didn't even know that there's such a thing.
It has two mini-fans with a built-in timer to efficiently dry your newly-polished toes.
Wow, hi-tech! :)

Step 9: Put on your slippers and you're ready to go! :)

I laaaveeet! Ang pedicures ko, lume-level up! LOL
