Girls will always be girls, and no matter what we do… conquering the world and all, by the end of the end, we enjoy some private time doing our nails. Or rather, get our nails done. We tried and tested some of the best places for some excellent Mani Pedi. Here’s our favourites…
1. THINK PINK NAILS
Where: Jalan Batu Belig 108, Bali.
Why we love it: more than 2000 nail color selections.
From the moment you step into THINK PINK NAILS, you can feel the personalized services. Schedule your time and they will greet you by your name. They will even help park your car upon entrance, just so you can get an easy way out. Styled after New York City style nail parlor, Think Pink Nails is every girl’s dream room. It’s chic, feminine and it’s pink. Up front, there’s the pedicure theatre with chic pedicure spa chairs (with a rolling massage feature), a manicure bar equipped with ipads in every seat, a separate acrylic/gel nail extensions room, a private treatment nest for waxing, a nail drying station and recently they add the hair treatment room. Book a package worth more than IDR 1.000.000 and you can use the private room. Like a true VIP!
First, choose your nail color. For Indonesian citizen, you can get a free upgrade on their premium nail polish like Chanel, Dior, Tom Ford, Laura Mercier and Dolce & Gabbana. They also have all 72 shades of gelcolor by O.P.I and high-end nail lacquer colors from Butter London, NARS, Zoya, China Glaze and Illamasqua. So when we say they have more than 2000 colors, we’re not kidding. After the color are chosen, you just have to sit back and enjoy being pampered. Order your drinks, too, while at it. They got everything from pink cocktails to hot tea.
2. THE SHAMPOO LOUNGE
Where: Bali Collection.
Why we love it: all in one, head to toe pampering
We call this place the yellow beauty palace, because it has all services you need for every occasion. Their motto is “We Get You Ready” and that they do. Last time we were there, we tried their nail services. We always love a great Mani Padi. Here they got the acrylic, acrylic gel, Shellac and OPI polish. What’s amazing is because they got full service, you can enjoy Spa Manicure session that includes mask; Hot Stone Pedicure with relaxing massage; or Foot Spa that will wash, scrub, buffed, massage and wrapped your feet into a total bliss.
For those who always get their nail nice and polished, a Mani Pedi is a must. But don’t compromise the health and beauty of your nails. That is why The Shampoo Lounge got everything you need to get perfect nails. Enjoy complimentary drinks while enjoying your treatment. Or while at it, get your hair spa, facial or makeup on. They got it all. Special for the bride-to-be, host your hens party at The Shampoo Lounge with your besties. Just contact them, and they will help create a custom menu for you.
3. THE NAILS STORY
Where: Samasta, Jimbaran
Call: +62361 472 5839
Why we love it: cool nail art design
First time we try Nails Story was because we fell in love with the cute nail art they have on their Instagram feed. They already have several branches in Jakarta, and last December they open in Samasta as part of the new Movenpick Resort opening. Their place is quite spacious, but they only have several mani pedi chairs. So it gives a sense of elegance and exclusivity. The whole space is very feminine and quirky in design, with velvet sofas, big white empty frames in the wall, and Victorian style display racks. We love it.
When choosing a service here, take time into consideration. You can splurge yourself and enjoy their Wonder Spa Mani or Pedi or both. There’s also the option of doing a Speedy Mani Pedi. The Classic French Mani Pedi is always a favourite. But it is their Nail Design that steal the show. You can have the polish design, gell design, acrylic design, folk art, swarovski, or doing a nail accesories and sticker. Make sure you choose the design you want, and they’ll make it. Fabulous!
4. NAILS DEPARTMENT
Where: Jimbaran Corner Unit C3
Call: +62361 704675
Why we love it: it’s all things nails
We first know them as a product supplier for Mani Pedi products. We’re talking about the first nail supplies store that servicing nails technician, salons and spa in Bali. They also gives training and consulting to the nail salons we see in Bali. So let’s give them credit for that. When you visit the store, you too can find lots of cute things like polish, mani pedi set, etc. However, you can also try their treatment. The place is rather small and intimate. But you can guarantee the quality of the product, the hygiene and skills of the therapist. You can even find the latest nail product and polish here, before they were distributed to other place. We love it here!
