I was tired from work and decided to check my personal when I saw that I was being invited by the very nice Ms. Arlene to try out the services of Posh Nails Marikina. Apparently, they have moved from their SM Marikina branch to a new building along Gil Fernando Ave (more commonly known as Tuazon for Marikenos). As it was Posh Nails and I’ve already told you how much I love even just being in their shop, I immediately said yes :)
As I visited during their first day of operations, there wasn’t really a noticeable signage yet. Fortunately, Ms Arlene told me that it was above East West Bank so there was no trouble at all looking for the place. When I went up the stairs, there was a Posh Nails wall poster as well, so I knew was in the right place.
I got in and was in awe of what the place looked like! I told Ms Arlene that I’m glad Posh Nails moved to this new branch from SM Marikina as the ambiance got very relaxing, homey, and hipster-cute (a term I invited myself).
I was about to get a themed pedicure which involved the usual pedicure + foot spa + scrub. Ms Arlene suggested that I get the ones from OPI, which is apparently their trusted brand (how un-girly of me not to know that). I picked the coffee scrub + cappuccino lotion combination because it smelled like being in Starbucks–something I definitely love!
I was propped on my seat and given magazines to read. I felt like a princess :)
They also gave me chips and a glass of water (my choice). Cute trivia: Posh Nails has matching drinks for your chosen pedicure theme (e.g. pineapple juice for the Pina Colada theme, tea for the Green Tea theme, orange juice for the Italian Mandarin theme, coffee for the Coffee theme)!
First thing they did to my horrible feet was to soak them in bubbly water.
Next came the foot spa machine which definitely relaxed my very tired feet.
Waited for the next step with much excitement ;)
My feet were then scrubbed using this sandpaper-like object whose name I do not know. Thanks to Ate May who always kept on asking if I was okay :)
Next came my coffee scrub! Best feeling ever! My legs and feet felt so exfoliated!
Ate May asked me to pick my polish color afterwards and there were a lot of choices! One of the things I love about Posh Nails is that they have the top quality brands!
It was then time for my pedicure a.k.a. the time to fix the disaster I caused to my toes. I always try to cut my toenails on my own and they end up tortured afterwards. Ate May made it a painless experience to get my toenails “fixed”. Side note: I was feeling cold at that time so Ate May gave me a blanky :) So sweet!
Before getting my toenails polished, my feet were soaked in hot water and I got a massage <3 Lovely!
Ate May then proceeded to put my pink/red polish on. She did a great job! It looked so clean and professionally-made!
TADAH MY FEET!
After my pedicure, Ms. Arlene was so kind to give me a Posh Nails bag, Myra-E lotion, and some GCs and vouchers to give away to friends and some readers of this blog (see more details below) ;)
That was definitely a great Posh Nails experience! :) You should go and visit Posh Nails Marikina soon to get great service from great people!
