Hey everyone! Last Saturday, May 21, I attended the opening of Nail It!'s branch at Greenhills. This was actually my first time to go to a legit nail salon. Back when I was still in LB, I used to have my nails done once every two weeks in one of the hair salons near the campus. Now I just do my own nails. Anyway, I intentionally didn't clean my nails before the event so that I could maximize the service. Why do it yourself when someone else can do it for you? <--- Motto of the lazy.

I went for a manicure (with polish) and that cost me 180 Php. The traditional manicure (without polish) costs 100 Php, and when you want to have your nails painted you're just gonna have to add 80 Php.
They only use Orly polishes. I actually had a hard time picking a shade. I wanted to try them all. Haha!
|Love the pastels :)|
I chose the shade Snow Cone which is a really pretty cornflower blue shade.
Who doesn't love the feeling of being pampered? :)
|Finished product. It's actually a bit darker in person|
As for the service, I had no complaints. I liked that the nail tech who did my nails was really friendly and had a gentle touch. I also liked how she took time to clean the edges (using an orange stick and not the tips of her nails like what others do) - something I'm too lazy to do. LOL. The clean-up even took a little longer than the actual polish application. Haha. Oh, and they also sterilize their tools before usage. Pretty neat, huh? Really comfy chairs, too :)
Aside from getting my nails done, I was also able to meet fellow bloggers like Sab (finally!), Kat, Jen, Kai and Tatie. Hazel, who I've already met once before, was also there :) Read about our meet-up *here.*

'Til the next event, ladies! :)
I also got a goodie bag from Ms. Jariss, a fashion blogger who also handles marketing for the salon. Thanks, Ms. Jariss! :D

We also had a quick chat with Ms. Jean, the owner of Nail It! and she shared to us how the whole concept of Nail It! came about. She started the whole concept with her daughter. Read more about that *here.* :)
