FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: My Preferred Nail Salons
Can someone please verify for me, your #TitaOfManila, if ala-Coachella, music festivals are "IT" events nowadays? It's all over social media and I see a lot of posts about it on my feeds. If yes, why are they so popular? What's in them? Hmmm...maybe I should take off my #TitaOfManila coat for a while and attend one for experience!
If you're going to any music festivals in the coming days, I hope your nails are primped and ready for the occasion. Painting your nails is the easiest and most convenient way to accessorize and look stylish in outdoor events like these where dressing down should be your first choice. On that note, let me share with you my favorite nail salons that you can visit before hitting these festivals. Thank you, Beah for this question!
Hi Ms. Martha,
Can you suggest a good nail salon? I'm very OC when it comes to cleanliness so I would really appreciate it if you can suggest one that is known for their sanitary procedures and amenities. Thank you! I will await your reply.
Thanks for writing to me! I'm totally with you when it comes to hygiene-this is the primary factor that affects my decision in choosing a nail salon to go to. I'd rather splurge on premium nail salons for clean tools, area, and of course, well- trained nail technicians and go home unscathed than save on cheap nail salons with substandard tools and service, and go home with an infection. In case you didn't know, you can contract an infection or disease from cuts and nicks due to botched nail treatments. Open your page, load Google, and search for nail salon horror stories if you don't believe me.
This is why I'm really picky when it comes to nail salons. I only go to the ones I trust and I really try my best to visit them whenever I need a mani or pedi-either that or nothing. Call me a diva or b*tch, but this is my stand: your health and safety should be your utmost priority in everything you do. I guess no one will argue with me on this point!
These are the nail salons I trust and I've proven to myself for so many times that they have expert nail technicians, value-for-money services, and most especially, sanitary facilities and practices. Click READ MORE for the list.
- Dashing Diva tops my list and it has been my go- to salon for the last 2 years because they're super duper hygienic! You know how hygienic they are? They do not reuse foot/callus exfoliators, they clean their surfaces and sinks often during the day, and their tools are not only sterilized but packed after usage too (obviously, I'm a Dashing Diva regular haha!). This salon also has some of the best nail technicians I know and they're so good at removing painful, dry skin on the sides of the toes with minimal risk of injury. It's by far the most expensive nail salon I go to, but I don't mind paying more for excellent service and a really clean area. I also like Dashing Diva for their soothing, clean salon aesthetic.
By the way, if you're looking at trying nail extensions, try their Virtual Nails service-it's nails that look and feel so real!
- My next favorite nail salon is Tips and Toes because they have fabulous, well- trained nail technicians and they clean up really well before entertaining the next customer. My favorite Tips and Toes branch is the one in San Antonio Plaza, Forbes Park because I love their massage chairs! :D This salon offers Gel Polish treatments so you might want to check them out if you're interested. I reviewed their Gel Polish treatment HERE.

- One time, I needed a pedicure badly, but I was too lazy to drive to Bonifacio Global City where the nearest Dashing Diva to me is located so I decided to try out this nail salon because it's just a 5-minute walk from my house. Believe it or not, it is only now that I tried this nail salon even if it has been around for years already and I must say, I like their service and how clean (and cute!) their place is-I'm coming back!
There goes my top three nail salons. How about you? Do you have your preferred nail salon/s?
