When was the last time you spent time for yourself? You don’t need to be already stressed, depressed, crushed over a heartbreak or low grades to seek a “me time” – a regular reconnection to our inner self is what’s important.
A peaceful mind is basically one of the most common reasons why we seek a “me time”. Enduring a hectic schedule, busy workplace, stressful school work, or demanding parenting requires us to seek an escape – a break from this maelstrom called life and its challenges.
Schedule a weekend or any free time and take your own physical, mental, emotional, and/or spiritual holiday. Get chummy with your couch and watch chic flicks the entire day, grab the newest John Green novel, download an entire Korean drama (with English subs!), and the list for all the things you can do alone goes on. The most important thing is finding and spending time with yourself.
For us girls, one of our most favourite ways to enjoy our “me time” is to get pampered. Who doesn’t want to feel like a relaxed queen for a day? For this post, let me introduce to you my newest spa discovery along the metro.
NAIL COCKTALES HAND AND FOOT SPA
Nail Cocktales Hand and Foot Spa is a beach/bar themed salon offering various services not only for women, but also for men and children. From nail, hand and foot treatments, waxing, massage, and spa parties, everyone is invited to enjoy his/her own luxury time while being pampered.
What makes it different?
Unlike other nail spa, Nail Cocktales offers refreshing, high quality cocktail drinks for its clienteles. It even has an alcohol bar!
What’s in the name?
Did you notice the word play in the second word of the spa’s name? Cheers if you did! Aside from serving cocktails, the spa wants itself to be a venue of girl talk and bonding, among others. 🙂
Was your curiosity piqued with this unique nail spa concept? Let me share my experience when I had my “me time” at its Blue Bay Walk Branch.
The spa exudes luxury and elegance. There’s no other way to describe it. Nail Cocktales has a minimalist interior with soft muted color curtains and white wall backdrop. It has high ceilings, making the entire area look more spacious. The entire spa showcases lavish modern comforts especially seen in its soft plush cushion sofas.
I particularly like these as they set a princess atmosphere.
Located in the newest lifestyle attraction in Pasay CBD, Nail Cocktales Hand and Foot Spa’s newest branch found its home at Blue Bay Walk. Since the lifestyle mall is conveniently situated at Metro Park EDSA corner Macapagal Boulevard, it is very accessible and easy to find.
Nail Cocktales offers manicure and pedicure, nail art and embellishment for both men and women. It uses well-known and international brands like Orly, Essie, China Glaze, Zoya, and Rubby Wing changing color nail polish. It also serves hand and foot spa, paraffin treatment, foot soak, scrub, and wrap. It also boasts its hand and foot massage services as well as its depileve waxing. To crown it all, the spa uses its exclusive handmade organic products for most, if not all, of the treatments it offers.
Getting pampered at this spa will not create a hole in your pocket as all treatments and services are reasonably priced. Some offers are even cheaper than others!
A girl can’t have too many nail polish bottles. But really, which color to choose?
The spa prides itself with its superior quality alcohol and mixtures. From the bar list, you can freely choose which drink you feel like having.
I initially had this Blue Bay Walk signature drink. I forgot what alcohol was in it though.
Isn’t it the best way to uplift one’s spirit? With spirits!
Like any other service company, the crucial element of a spa is its staff. I am happy to observe that Nail Cocktales employs experienced people to deliver quality service to its clienteles.
All the employees are sporting a pair of blue-themed scrubs which looks bright and cheerful to look at. The nail technicians are also well-trained, approachable, courteous, and attentive.
Now, let’s try some of its services!
After receiving my first cocktail drink, the assigned nail technician to me, Jacq, prepared the materials and equipment for my treatment. I chose the spa’s Yummylicious package – a deal consists of manicure, pedicure, and foot spa.
Orly in Cotton Candy
I chose banana berry for the scent of my scrub. It is nice to know that the spa is using organic treatments!
Foot Paraffin Wax
Next, I tried the spa’s foot paraffin wax treatment. The hot wax gave a tingly sensation at first application, but gradually relaxed later on.
After the procedure, Jacq gave me this cute white and pink slippers to wear over my bound feet!
Nail Cocktales Hand and Foot Spa is an excellent venue to spend quality “me time” or girl bonding with friends. It has a serene, tranquil, and feminine ambience which makes it very easy to relax. The atmosphere is too serene – I could easily doze off as soon as I sit in one of those plush sofas. Not that I won’t appreciate catching some z’s though. Still, playing some relaxing music will add to the spa’s charms. Moreover, I think having a tip box in the counter will be nice to reward the skilled and attentive staff. Aside from those little improvements, my experience in this spa has been more than what I expected. I got a chance to regroup, de-stress, and pamper myself while enjoying my luxury time with friends.
With fellow blogger, Alice. This spa is perfect for those girl talks (and gossips) 😀
Will I go back here? Most definitely! I’ll even bring my girl friends with me.
