Chronicles of Nails: Manos Nail Lounge

I've never felt to manly in my life.

It was five days before Kat's wedding and Nic and I suddenly wanted to fly out to Cebu for New Year's. Packing was easy, it was all the little details that came with it that was hard. On Rizal Day, after a leisure lunch, I went a couple of blocks from home and into Manos Nail Lounge in Burgos Circle. I needed a manicure and a pedicure badly and ever since my sprain, I stayed away from salons until I absolutely needed to go. I called them two hours before I intended to go to reserve myself a spot and I'm glad I did. The place was packed!

I was then led to a Filipino-themed area. My feet were washed with warm water and I was able to choose a bottle of nail polish {OPI's My Chihuahua Bites}. They also had Chanel and Butter London, at PHP 160 additional for both hands and feet.

View from where I sat and sort of dazed into sleepiness

The short of it is that I really did love the service. Now that I'm in my late twenties, I've become choosier on where I want to go for these kinds of services. I get turned off with noisy places, most especially. Anyway:

Why I Love Manos Nail Lounge:

  • The nail technicians are nice without upselling. I like it that they turn the page of my book for me while my nails aren't yet dry. And that they tell me my nails aren't in tiptop shape in a manner that's not offensive {a rare talent, actually}. 
  • Their selections are pretty good. Mostly OPI, Orly, Essie, Zoya. They offer Chanel, Butter London and Sephora for a price.
  • My manicure held up pretty well until the wedding, and until now, actually. Usually, my nails are chipped by Day 2 but theirs was really good. Took about two hours for hands and feet but I didn't mind. My pedicure is immaculate up to now.
  • Price is great. My manicure and pedicure is for a total of PHP 440. Not bad!

Would I come back? You bet.
