Nail Salon: Organic Rituals

Ever since our favorite nail salon closed for business last month, my mother and I were on the look out for another nail salon. Last week, we decided to try Organic Rituals. I encountered this nail salon while searching for a local distributor of Zoya nail polishes. I had a few nail salons on my list to check out but I decided to check Organic Rituals first.

Inside Organic Rituals. That's my mother sitting in the corner while
I kept myself busy taking pictures.


Organic Rituals have a spacious working area and comfortable sofas. These are details that I always look forward to in a nail salon. What's the point of getting pampered if you can't relax in your seat? I've experienced nail salons where nail technicians often bump each other because there's not enough space to move around.

Comfy seats that you can make your own during your visit.


As soon as you enter the salon, you will be asked for the type of service you wish to avail. During my first visit, I got the Long Wear Manicure and Long Wear Pedicure. It entailed cleaning, a little massage, and application of polish. My mother got the Rescued Feet with Pedicure. This service included a very relaxing foot spa.

Organic Rituals have a variety of services:

I think the best thing about Organic Rituals is the fact that everything they use there is 100% organic! This, I believe, is what separates them from other nail salons in the Metro. I've recently wrote an article regarding the toxins some nail polishes have. Organic Rituals is proud to say that they only use polishes that are free of the big 3 - Toluene, Formaldehyde, and Dibutyl Phthalate. And I have to say, this is the only nail salon in the Philippines that uses the Zoya nail polish! I just can't emphasize that enough! :)

Sparitual nail polishes. I haven't tried this one. Probably on my next visit.


Aside from the safe and non-toxin nail polishes, Organic Rituals also use organic scrubs, lotions, and oils for spas. You will be asked to choose what you'd like to be used during your visit if you'll avail of a spa service.

Nail and spa tools. So neat and classy!


According to Organic Rituals, they single-use several tools such as nail file, buffer, and nail stick. This highly promotes hygiene that's one of the main concerns of clients when they visit a nail salon.

Feet are soaked before pedicure procedure to soften the cuticles
and relieve dry skin.


There's this one thing I need to mention ...


Organic Rituals 05
Twisted tissue paper as toe separators.


Instead of using a toe separator, Organic Rituals rolls an approximately 5-inch long tissue paper and twists it before placing it in between my toes to act as a separator before applying the nail polish. I like this better than the usual toe separators because after awhile of wearing the latter, my toes feel stiff and a little numb.


Organic Rituals 06
For my nail polish, I chose Zoya Veruschuka. I've been fascinated with matte
colors but sadly, haven't found one to purchase.


Cuticle oil was applied after the manicure and the pedicure. It got a little messy after awhile. I might opt not to have this applied next time.

NO to nail brush!

During our visit at Organic Rituals, I appreciated that the nail technicians didn't use a nail brush when cleaning my nails. Instead, they used a small, clean and slightly moist white towel. My hands are quite sensitive in the sense that they easily get hurt. And so it is big thumbs up for Organic Rituals for not using a nail brush that sometimes hurt clients.

I'm also very particular about cleaning excess polish after a manicure and pedicure. Sadly, I wasn't so satisfied with this. I'm usually into this detail when I'm wearing dark polish. I want a neat application. After the manicure, I found a few nails where the sides were not properly polished. I should have called the attention of my nail attendant regarding this concern. This will not however, hinder me from going back to Organic Rituals.

Probably the best part of my visit, and for any nail enthusiast like myself, is this:
