The Nail Salon:
So a week ago, I had some time after work and decided to pay Noey Nail Room a visit. It officially opened its doors last January 2012. Its a small room inside Nayon Spa and can sit 3 clients comfortably.
As of this posting, they offer the following services:
- Hand and Foot Spa
- Nail Art
Prices are very reasonable. Manicure starts at Php150 ($3.5) and they have packages that would allow you to pay less for combined services. During my visit, I tried the Hand and Foot Spa for Php780 ($19).
They only use 2 brands of nail polish -- Zoya and Misa -- because the owners want the salon to be kid friendly. Vegan or big 3 free polishes are best for this objective. I hope they could include more brands of nail lacquer as most are already big 3 free.
- Clean and Simple
I found the wood furniture with separate pillows unique. Most nail salons have fancy sofas. The problem with the latter is that it is harder to clean. I find the setup in Noey Nail Room more practical without sacrificing the comfort.
Tools and other nail paraphernalias were also neatly organized in a basket, along with clean towels. I always find it nice to see lotions, nail polish remover, cuticle softener, etc. in separate and clear bottle organizers.
- Toe Separators
Service is the main reason for me to come back to a nail salon and I had a not so nice experience with my visit to Noey Nail Room. No matter how comfortable the sofa or how great the ambiance is, I always feel that it all boils down to service and this greatly depends on the nail technician that takes care of me. She had shaky hands and was too afraid to clean my nails because I had really thin skin and so my hand and foot spa finished in fast forward.
Noey Nail Room is located at 92-C Katipunan Ave., White Plains, 1604 Quezon City and you may contact them at (02) 2384032 or at 09178916296 to book an appointment. Look for Nayon Spa that is right beside Kitaro restaurant.
Disclosure: Owner of Noey Nail Room invited me to visit their nail salon. For impartial review, I always visit nail salons anonymously and I fully paid for all services I availed. My personal experience with Noey Nail Room may be different from yours.
