Yesterday, I tried this nail spa I heard so much about – Make Me Blush Nail Spa & Beauty Lounge
It’s located at the third floor of Hemady Square (same building as The Bunny Baker) along E. Rodriguez Ave. cor. Doña Hemady St., just a little past Christ The King if you are coming from Araneta Avenue.
Parking is free. You can park at the building basement, there’s a guard and everything.
Here’s the cute counter that greets you when you enter:
It has a cute, girly, beach-y vibe — bright and spacious.
I don’t usually have my nails done since I cook, but a few times a year, I feel like I owe it to myself to do a little self-pampering. And hey, summer’s about to end, so here I am! Doing this before summer’s gone.
The place is clean — I noticed that the attendants cleaned up the work area when they’re done and quickly set the place to rights. The place always looks clean and inviting, with everything in order. They also have a nice, clean restroom within their premises.
I also totally love the decor! I love this style, like casual meets romantic beach cottage. Check out these French Louis style chairs! Love the “modern” upholstery!
And these bird cage lights!
I had the manicure + pedicure + foot spa spa package — it costs P670.00 (see price list below).
MANI + PEDI + FOOT SPA
I was given some polish swatches to choose from, and I ended up choosing a blue green color. The nail polish brands they use include Essie, Orly, Sally Hansen, Zoya, Cuccio.
Two attendants worked on me simultaneously, that’s why I couldn’t take pictures, hahaha. My hands were otherwise unavailable.
For the foot spa, my feet were soaked for about 5-10 minutes, after which, exfoliation began. My attendant, Che, used a wooden paddle foot file to remove callouses on my feet. Then she scrubbed my feet and lower legs and then moisturized them. She also did a little foot and lower leg massage! After the foot spa, she clipped my toenails and started the pedicure. Che was very patient and thorough – it took her a while to finish but I appreciate how thorough she was, trying to remove all the callouses, dry skin, etc…
While this was going on, my other attendant, Roda, was working on my hands. She also did some hand massage. Both of them were strong and gave good, hard massages! It was great, and I was really tempted to get a full body massage right then and there!
Roda was an expert at doing nails, I could tell. She was quick, sure, and done in less than 30 minutes! She asked me what shape I wanted for my nails. I requested to keep them short, square-oval. It bothers me when my fingernails are longer than my fingers – it just feels like something is wrong with my fingers, and typing and other tasks become cumbersome.
Both attendants did not cause any pain. Truth be told, the cool, airconditioned, relaxing ambience and the non-painful mani + pedi had me dozing on and off during the entire thing!
Both attendants had their own kits, and they used spray bottles to dispense liquids like cuticle removers, etc… the mani + pedi process was the typical one where they clean the nails with a metal scraper, trim off cuticles and dry skin, shape, file & buff the nails. Polish application includes a base coat, color, and top coat.
After the mani + pedi, I just chilled & waited 15 minutes for the polish to dry before leaving. I didn’t want to risk ruining them. They were so pretty!
I love my nails! Can’t wait to show them off!
Aside from the usual Mani and Pedi, Make Me Blush Nail Spa & Beauty Lounge also offers massages, eyelash extension, waxing and threading, hair services, and spa parties! It’s really a one-stop beauty place.
Check them out! It’s a great stopover if you just need some time to yourself in between meetings. Or make it a frequent habit if you live nearby. I saw a lot of suki customers coming by towards 6pm. Unlike places in malls, being at Make Me Blush Nail Spa felt like being in another place where time passes by more slowly, it was like a micro-vacation 🙂
