Most of my friends know that I was never into manicures and painting my nails. I only enjoy foot scrubs with cleaning and seldom get polish even for the toe nails. Especially when I got pregnant, getting my nails done has become more of a chore than a treat.
Good grooming and relaxing pampering are important for me but I simply cannot stand the strong scent of nail polish that lingers on for days. I also dislike the hassle of having to remove the stubborn polish while it leaves a yellowish stain on my nails.
BUT GUESS WHAT? I have just recently discovered a GAME CHANGER for me!
This gem I found in SM Aura is a nail salon unlike any other, mostly because of the way it combines eco-chic pampering experience with a one-of-a-kind French themed ideal. IMAGINE THAT? A French themed nail salon (I love anything French because France is where my husband and I spent our honeymoon. France will always be special.) that offers ORGANIC, VEGAN, AND TOXIC FREE TREATMENTS??? This was surely made for me! It’s a match made in heaven! Haha! 🙂
The moment you step in the newly opened FRENCH TIPS NAIL PARLOUR, you’ll be ushered into a luxe escape. Here, you become a woman of leisure and nature that is doted on and attended to, where you can choose to zone out or chatter idly, depending on your mood and pamper without putting your health at risk.
It was such a pleasure to sneak in a luxurious and eco-friendly treat at French Tips while my daughter is being babysitted by her grandparents. The scent of lavender gently ushers you to the gardens of Provence. As you begin your luxurious, eco-chic journey, you will be asked how you want a healthy French Tips experience using toxic-free nail polishes, beginning with selecting your preferred scents for your lotions and foot soaks, all of which are designed to whisk you away and take you to a lazy sunny day spent in the quaint orchards of the French countryside using Formaldehyde free and Paraben free materials.
The interiors certainly lend itself to the vibe. Impeccably designed to reflect the quiet luxury of France, each element inside French Tips Nail Parlour lets you bask in the elegance that the country is known for—from the high back armchairs that invite you sink yourself in to the intricate details that pepper the salon interiors like the faux grass and white reindeer heads that adore its walls. The team, all expertly trained to provide the best possible eco-friendly service, are attentive and accommodating—all intent on providing you with a few hours to escape and enjoy this rare, but much deserved opportunity to indulge in a salon which never use animal-derived ingredients in any of their products.
To name a few of their polishes’ international organic and vegan brands are Honeybee Gardens, Beautylish, Piggy Paint, Suncoat Products, Acquarella, Pritinyc, Sparitual, Zoya, Misa, OPI, Orly, Nubar, Faby and Color Club. I chose the American brand Honeybee Gardens for my manicure and it was a lovely shade of nude, just the way I like it! 🙂
So you see what I mean when I say I’ve found my game changer? Someone’s going to turn into a nailaholic real soon. 🙂
