Who doesn't love getting pampered? Last Friday, I went to a recently-opened spa called Freyja Day and Nail Spa. I was supposed to meet fellow bloggers there too, but most of them couldn't come. Anyway, Freyja Day and Nail Spa is, well, a spa, and they offer services for the nails, hands, feet, and the whole body. They even offer lash perm and extension, and waxing/threading services for both women and men.

The place is very cozy and it's not difficult to relax inside. The music that's being played in the background will help you relax even more, and it reminded me of the soundtrack of the game 3 Stars of Destiny. High five if you know that game!

And here are the nail art designs that you can choose from.
The staff are really friendly and accomodating. They even gave me something to drink :]
Ms Shirley, the owner, suggested I get the Vana-Goddess Whitening Hand Spa which is one of the services she recommends to everyone for a real pampering treat.
The treatment started off with exfoliation. Ms Ashley (the person who attended to me) started off by scrubbing my arms thoroughly. The scrub she used smelled like melon! Mmmmm! And then she rinsed the scrub off with warm water with Thai salt (I think). Then she applied a sort of lotion with thick consistency all over my arms. She said it was for the whitening part of the treatment. She then wrapped each arm in plastic wrap, then wrapped the whole thing in a towel. She took it after about 10 minutes, wiped my arm with a towel to remove the residue, and then applied a serum with moisturizing properties (if I remember correctly). Then she made me wear this huge (cute) warm glove.
It felt as if my hand was in a sauna. Well, I actually haven't been in a sauna before but that's how I imagined it would feel like. Then finally, she massaged my arm with warm stones.
I was asking her after every step, "Ano 'yung nilagay mo? (What did you just apply?)." I just wanted to know what's being applied on my skin. Hihi. Ok, so I don't actually remember the exact sequence of the treatment but that's basically what was done. My hands felt really soft and smooth after the treatment. As for the whitening effect, of course I wasn't expecting a noticeable change after just one treatment.
After the treatment, she proceeded to cleaning my nails and applying nail polish. I chose these two shades. I opted for yellow nails with green accent.

She applied a gel top coat instead of the regular top coat. Gel polishes are said to be longer-lasting than regular polishes. Will talk about this and show you more pics on my next NOTD.
Oh, by the way, Mitch of Mitch Wears Clothes was there too, and she was with her friends Des and Rachelle.

If you're near the area, you may want to drop by there while the promos are still going on.
