For those who follow me on Instagram would have noticed that I’ve got my nails done recently! This time, I went for acrylic gel with ocean-themed design in preparation for my upcoming trip to Redang. It will be my first visit to the island in East Coast (damn jakun lololol) and I heard that our islands are way more beautiful than the usual touristy islands we visit in Thailand. Super excited already!
Gotta show you the final outcome before anything else. Absolutely love the dual tone gel colour and the intricate waves design that my manicurist put in so much effort to draw on my nails meticulously. And those adorable seashells, starfish and tiny pearls! *heart-eyed*
My manicure and pedicure pampering session was done at E Nailspa located at Desa Sri Hartamas. It didn’t take me long to find the nail salon as it is located at one of the shop buildings right behind Souled Out. Parking was not an issue as there is a basement parking at the building itself. Alternatively you may park at the outdoor parking space outside Souled Out. As for me, I was lucky to have spotted a car vacating a perfect spot right outside the building! Teehee.
Situated on the first floor of the shop building, E Nailspa is safe from the hustle bustle of the restaurant and bar businesses within the vicinity. The salon is cosy, properly furnished with English-themed wallpaper and furniture which make you feel instantly at ease.
Super adorable bunny cushion!
It is also fully equipped with quality products and hygienic tools expected from a professional nail salon. I was impressed as unlike some nail salon, E Nailspa is well-ventilated and is free from nail polish stench.
Plenty of sample nail arts for you to get your inspiration. Meanwhile, owner Emanda Chong gave me some suggestions for my nail art and colours. I was tempted to go for the black and white flower design but nah, I had to stick to my ocean-themed nail art! Next time perhaps.
There were altogether 5 armchairs at the nail salon! Must have been quite an investment as it was super comfy and makes one feel like a Queen. LOL. I have never felt so comfortable resting on an armchair at a nail salon. No wonder they call it a pamper session. Just the chair itself is a good form of pampering.
My manicurist who graduated from the O.P.I. Academy. Thanks for attending to my special requests. And thumbs up to her exemplary skills for making my nails so perfect! Everything was carefully done without any missing edge.
Don’t worry about the stick-on items falling out one by one as it was done by acrylic gel. Or to explain in layman term, first the manicurist would stick them one by one with glue, then apply a few coating of transparent acrylic gel onto your nails and dry them with UV light. The acrylic gel would be thick and strong enough to hold the stickers to make sure they don’t fall. Should be able to last for a month if you take good care of it.
Next up was 3-step Spa Pedicure. After some good scrubbing, my feet immediately felt so much cleaner and smoother. Foot mask was applied thoroughly and generously, after which my feet were wrapped for the next 15 minutes before the mask was rinsed off.
I had some dilemma when it came to choosing the design for my toe nails. Initially I wanted white base with stars and pearls stickers, the same as my fingernails. But Emanda did not think that it was a good idea as the stickers would not last on my toe nails since I wear covered shoes to work daily. Instead, she recommended me the latest magnetic coating which will be the upcoming trend. I have seen this effect on their Instagram which is rather new and interesting, so why not! The magnetic coating comes in either silver or gold. It works best with darker base so I opted for dark blue with golden magnetic coat.
I was intrigued by how it works. After applying the normal gel colour, my pedicurist applied a layer of that special coating onto the entire toe nails. After that, she would use a magnetic tool to make the coating gather at the centre of the nails. Couldn’t take my eyes off the whole time, never had such canggih pedicure session before! LOL.
The end result was stunning. The special magnetic coating gives you a marbling illusion from various angles.
Price list for the above: Gel Manicure RM90 + Nail Art RM120, Gel Pedicure RM110 + 3D Magnetic Art RM10, 3-Step Spa RM90.
Of course, if you want to drop by for a quick fix on your nails, they do provide the most basic express manicure for only RM25. Pricing differs depending on what you choose! :)
