The Nail Salon
I went to Glam Nails and Skin Spa in Quezon City a few weeks ago. This is one of the 6 stores nationwide and it opened its services last December 2011.
The moment I stepped in the salon, it was promising. It was comfortably large and based on my personal count, it can comfortably sit 8 clients simultaneously in these lovely chairs:
The place reminded me of my good friend's wedding that had the same color theme -- purple and apple green. I actually thought it was a good choice of color for a spa. It is welcoming to both genders. The earth tone colors of the furniture and equipment used complemented the motif as well. The seats were not the usual recliners but was comfortable and spacing was enough for nail technicians to move around you.
- Hand and foot services
- Full body massages
- Dermatological and Cosmetic Services
Price for a manicure starts at Php80 ($2) and a pedicure for Php100 ($2.5). During my visit, I availed of their hand spa with reflexology and foot spa with reflexology. The service already included manicure and pedicure and cost me almost Php1000 ($24).
- No Rush
I also like this small wooden basin they use for rinsing my arms:
- Accommodating Staff
- Restricted and Regular
I was taken aback when I finally met the owner. She was inside the nail room when I arrived. I had a gut feel that she might be the owner but dismissed it when I was not approached or welcomed. I always believe that a good service starts with welcoming a client, whoever they may be. If we can go gaga over a celebrity that visits our shop, we should do the same to every customer. A good chit chat can actually encourage a repeating client.
