Yesterday I went to my favorite manicurist to do my nails. I asked her to do some simple gradation for me and this is what she did.
I know gradation is nothing spectacular but I just love how she made my nails look like gel nails. She only charged me SGD15 extra for gradation, which I find very reasonable. I am not sure what is the going rate at nail parlors, but I find her pricing very reasonable!
Why I like to keep going back to this manicurist is because she really devotes her time entirely to you when you go to her (she works alone). Normally for a full manicure and pedicure session, it can take up to 2 hours because she will make your fingernails and feet look really clean and smooth (ok the smooth part is for feet only hahaha). You never get to feel this way if you go to a regular manicurist.
She is fantastic at nail art too. This is what she did for me for my wedding day.
It was absolutely out of the ordinary and I loved it. She asked me what I was going to wear on that day and designed something on the spot for me. Too bad the pic is a bit small here so you can't really see the design. There is quite a bit of complex drawing at the fingertips. The pic doesn't do the nail design justice!
I had a relaxing time there too. She has a LCD TV there and I watched Hong Kong drama from 7-10.30pm. She finished doing my nails at 9pm, but I had to wait for my husband who was late to pick me up, so she let me stay till my husband arrived. She doesn't have regular closing time. By the time I left, she was doing gel nails for another customer. How cool can that be? =D
