Pampering myself is one of my guilty pleasures. I am really setting a portion of my personal income for spa and salon visits. Why? Because with all the roles I portray – mother, homemaker,businesswoman, and everything else in between, I deserve to be pampered. I work hard and it’s not bad to give back something to myself. To put it simply, I love myself and self-pampering is the excellent reward to a tired and hardworking mom. Who wouldn’t agree?
I was ecstatic when I received an invite from Ms. Marcie Linao of Love and Light Productions for a day of pampering at the chic, fab and classy POSH Nails in Perea, Makati. Though, I didn’t make it during the “pampering day for bloggers”, Ms. Marcie was kind enough to rebook my appointment.
Posh Nails is one of the frontrunners in nail spas and salons industry. With over 30 branches nationwide established since Posh Nails started 12 years ago, this salon has proven that experience and quality matter more than anything. No wonder why Posh Nails has been the favorite destination of celebrities who want to experience posh pampering.
Posh Nails Perea is one of its branches which was established for close to a year now, located at Ground Floor of Maripola Building, 109 Perea St., Legaspi Village, Makati City. It’s actually walking distance from Greenbelt 5.
Upon entrance, I was greeted by their friendly and welcoming staff. My eyes were mesmerized with the Barbie-doll pink and lavender interiors plus the cute crystal chandeliers that accentuate the ceiling making the place so dainty and lady-like.
Look at the combination of the pastel and bright shades of pink and lavender. Aren’t those too beautiful to sit on?
This is how spacious Posh Nails Perea Branch is. With numerous comfy couches, plump pillows, cushioned foot stools, stack of international magazines and enchanting decors hanging on the wall bathed with baby pink, this place instantly preps you for a session of pampering.
I was actually enticed to have a soothing body massage when I entered this room. The ambiance is so homey, I can actually doze off here.
Few minutes after, a beautiful, young lady arrived and was later on introduced to me. She’s Ms. Jen Aquino, owner of Posh Nails Perea branch. Ms. Jen Aquino, alongside with her sisters as business partners, believe in the quality of service that Posh Nails gives its clients, as they have experienced it for themselves many times.
Putting up a nail salon and spa and getting a franchise in the area was the logical and best choice for Jen and her sisters as the residents from the condos and people who work in the offices nearby matched their target market.
Being close to several malls like Greenbelt and Glorietta, this branch is perfect for wives, moms and kids while husbands and dads go shopping nearby. And, because this branch is located in the heart of Makati’s business district, Posh Nails is open till 10 pm to accommodate the working women of the metro looking for some de-stressing.
As I conversed with Ms. Jen, I learned that they have customized sparty packages that are perfect for mom-and-daughter bonding moments as well as small parties for girls, bridal showers and tea parties. Their space can accommodate 10-15 people.
So, ladies planning for bridal showers and baby showers can have the best of both worlds – fun chikka time with friends while getting lavishly pampered. Even little girls getting together for birthday parties can avail of custom packages.
My Posh Nails Experience
To be honest, I was extremely excited to try their Watermelon themed service. With the beautiful surrounding, I totally expected for a relaxing royal treatment. While, I seated on their comfy couch, a portion of my arms and legs were covered with a clean towel. A glass of cool watermelon juice was served while my hands, legs and feet were soaked, scrubbed and massaged using the special watermelon scrub and lotion. It was an hour of soothing and relaxing posh pampering treat great for my tired and achy leg muscles.
The nail technicians assigned to me were very polite and well-trained. My opinion was asked if I want my cuticles removed, how I want my nails to be cut, all along my say was important for them. The polish on my nails were perfectly done as well. With all the nail salons I visited over the years, I know what good service is. And, Posh Nails exceeded my standard. See how nice and perfectly polished my nails are…
One thing I dislike when I go to spas and salons is the relentless babbling of the staff. And, with that, I would like to commend Posh Nails Perea since all their staff act professionally. They don’t talk when they don’t need to and when they do they were all soft-spoken. No shouting and loud giggling.
