Time to pamper myself. As you all know, I am now officially a mommy-to-be. Before having that 9 months of getting “big on the belly”, I just wanted to stop, relax and pamper myself.

In the midst of the hustle and bustle of Robinson’s Galleria, I came across a little place where I can have my nails done. It’s called LUXE Nail Lounge. When you enter the “lounge”, you will catch a glimpse of people sitting back and relaxing in either double or single sofas scattered in the room. The ambiance is actually very relaxing, as if you just entered a club with your friends and you were about to have nails done instead of martinis and vodka.

They are experts when it comes to nails. The lady in the front desk was very accommodating and she explained to me the different services that they are offering:

Express: it’s basically just shaping and painting your nails
Manicure (Php 150); Pedicure (Php 180)
Basic: it’s soaking, shaping, massaging and painting your nails
Manicure (Php 180); Pedicure (Php 220)
Lounge: it;s soaking, shaping, reflexology and painting. They use organic, non-greasy shea body butter infused with Vitamin E for the foot reflexology.
Manicure (Php 330); Pedicure (Php 500)
Luxe: it’s soaking, scrubing, placing a mask, shaping, extended massage and painting. They scrub your feet or hands with milk and dead sea salt scrub, which is followed by detoxification using a high grade clay mask and massage.
Manicure (Php 380); Pedicure (Php 550)

After I chose just the Express with both Manicure and Pedicure, the girl mentioned that I could go through and wait for a lady to assist me. There were other women there and actually, a man also just came in to have services done. For first timers, like me, it could be pretty uncomfortable, since all of you were ‘sort of” all there and just hanging out. Most of them were reading magazines and some were chatting; I realized no one was minding other people so slowly, I relaxed and loosened up.

Two girls assisted me; one took care of my feet and the other took care of my hands. I felt like a queen and they really were gentle and really good. I think nail cleaning and painting is an art. There are those who are really gifted and I think people there were really trained, if not gifted.

By the way, they also offer only massages, silk cocoon paraffin treatment, reflexology and waxing – all for your feet or hands (except waxing that can be done also for the underarms).

So if you want to relax and have your nails cleaned, LUXE is open for both men and women.
