My Pampering Session at Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa

I am one of those women doesn’t like long nails.  I feel like long nails are unclean (that is just me).  However, I do like seeing well-pedicured toenails with nice nail polish.  I don’t often go to nail salons as I find it hard to squeeze a pedicure session in my busy mommy-slash-working mom-time.  That is why I am so glad when Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa invited me for a pampering session.



After my waxing session at Hey Sugar Waxing Salon, I then went to Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa which is situated just beside Hey Sugar.  Like Hey Sugar, Nailaholics gives a very warm approach to its interiors.  It’s more of a beach motif and thus very relaxing.   



I was seated the moment I entered Nailaholics.  Tea was served as well.  I don’t have a particular service in mind so I gave them the liberty to do to my nails what they think is right.  I just had two requests: 1) I don’t want them to put nail polish on my fingernails and 2) I want to have a gel nail polish for my toenails – and they gladly agreed.

Ready to be pampered.

Before working on my fingernails and toenails, the attendants made sure I know that they were using sterilized materials – which I was quiet happy to note.  They were also very efficient in doing their job – making sure I feel relaxed and that I don’t feel any pain on the whole duration of the services they offered.  



What I also like at Nailaholics is that husbands (boyfriends and partners too) are very welcome to wait while their better half (wives, girlfriends, and partners) are having a pampering session.  They can seat comfortably in the couches and several reading materials are at their disposal.

Since I am not one who goes to nail salon, I was surprised that the pampering session I had, which included a manicure, pedicure, foot spa, lower leg scrub, and arm massage lasted for more than an hour!  And this pampering session was done by two attendants.  Talk about relaxing and me-time! I should do this more often.  J


I was invited at Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa District Imus branch.  And the review is based on this branch.  Hey Sugar Waxing Salon and Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa are under the same management.

3 Things I Like About Hey Sugar Waxing Salon

Waxing salons have been popping out in every mall lately.  This might be because being hairless in some parts of our bodies is becoming the standard of flawlessness.  For some, going hairless is not just about vanity but also a means of taking care of oneself.   This is true for me.

One Saturday, Hey Sugar Waxing Salon invited me to try their services.  I have tried other waxing salons already, and I would like to see how Hey Sugar Waxing Salon is different from other waxing salons.  



Clean areas, trained aesthetician, and affordable prices are some of the things that customers are looking for a waxing salon.  These are things you can find at Hey Sugar.  But allow me to add three more things that will make you choose Hey Sugar apart from the rest.

Beautiful Ambience – The moment I entered Hey Sugar Waxing Salon, I was amazed by its interiors.  The decors and furniture are very homey.  Their waxing rooms are spacious and clean.  And the whole area has a wonderful odor.  It smells clean and relaxing.

Lovely interior.

Spacious waxing room.

Organic Ingredients – I was told that Hey Sugar uses organic ingredients in their wax.  Sugar and calamansi are some of the ingredients they use.  This is very ideal for women who want to make sure that no harmful ingredients touch their skin.  Also, because they use organic ingredients, pregnant women (with the approval of their OB) can have a safe waxing experience at Hey Sugar.

They also sell organic products such as body scrub, castor oil, etc.

Threading Instead of Plucking – Most waxing salons are accustomed to plucking hairs that are left in waxing.  Hey Sugar does not.  They apply threading.  I find this nice as threading is less painful and has smoother effect.
