It’s always such a treat for us moms to receive pampering on our hardworking hands and feet. I was the recipient of such a treat from Nail Spa Lounge by Ellabell. The branch I went to was the newly opened one located on the 2nd floor Alfresco area Robinsons Las Piñas. I went along with my husband Ricky to photograph the nail salon’s facade. The outside kind of looks like a café, don’t you think?
The ambience of this nail salon was very welcoming. I think it’s because of the friendly colors yellow and blue. They kind of remind me of a country home. The grey wall served as the perfect neutral background for the interesting painted hexagonal patterned wall panels and for the yellow & blue tufted armchairs where the customers sit and relax.
I like the VIP room very much! It’s cozy and I can imagine making chika with a friend in here.
I was treated to the Primadonna hand and foot spa. For the feet, a relaxing soak came first. I never wanted to remove my feet but the heels needed to be scoured. After a bit of massage, some cling plastic wrapping and slathering on of some products, a pair of pink heated booties were slipped on. The fact that they needed to be plugged in made me a bit nervous, but I had nothing to worry about after all. Before my toenails got some cleaning and nail polish was applied, a pouch with stones was rolled on my legs, maybe as another form of massage. I chose the color called Eternal Optimist.
As for my hands, they were also massaged, exfoliated and then placed in a Wave Pack glove. I was glad the glove was big so I could retract my hands a little from the fingers part, especially the thumb, because my hands couldn’t take the heat. Unlike the booties that were simply hot, the glove had herbs inside that could not only improve circulation, but could also relieve the joint and wrist pains. My right hand was feeling a bit weird before I went to Nail Spa Lounge. After the treatment, my hand felt better. I opted for a light color for my nails, but is still glittery in keeping with the holiday season. Haha! The name of my color was called Luscious Los Angeles. Reading the names of the color choices kept me entertained. Coming up with them must have been such fun!
Instrumental versions of some popular but old, sentimental songs (Unbreak My Heart) were playing in the background. I was not sure whether to sing along aloud or to relax and “feel the moment”. To prevent the attendants from rolling their eyes at me, I chose the latter. I wanted to sleep then and there, but we had to head home afterward.
This is the waiting area. Isn’t that love seat endearing? The word propped on the side table was a reminder for women (and men!) to love themselves.
In what ways do you show love to yourself?

The place looks very pretty! The Primadonna hand and foot spa sounds interesting. I do my own mani and pedi because I’m scared to get ingrown nails but I might give this one a try.

Yes, ingrown nails is something I am scared of, too!

This reminds me that I need to go to a spa to beautify my hands and feet. I agree with Cherry; the Nail Spa Lounge looks like an ideal place to get pampered.
Oh, lovely VIP area. Plus, they have creative names for the different nail color. I am also thinking of having my nails done for Christmas. We’ll see if I have time.

Christmas is one excuse to go have pretty nails. 🙂
The place indeed look so relaxing! I love color and the design. I wish I’ll get some kind of pampering for myself before the year ends. Your nails looks really pretty Sis.

That spa looks glorious.
I enjoy going to spa but I only do that sparingly.
Thanks for sharing your experience and keep it going.
What a chic place to do a mani and a pedi. Do they serve refreshments too?
I avoid multi-tasking, I sleep longer and I occasionally indulge with my parents any dish that is high in calorie. In rare instances, we wander too to a new place that enriches the senses as well as the spirit.

They also serve drinks. I had hot tea.
Multi-tasking doesn’t do it for me, I have a hard time focusing.

It must have been a really pampering experience visiting a nail spa. I haven’t been to one in ages!!

Maybe it’s time to go to a nail spa soon!
Ma Rozelle Ragiles-Vendil says
I do agree with you that the facade of the nail spa looks more of a cafe. But I must say that the interior design of the spa is very chic and the colors look vibrant and happy. I love to pamper myself with a foot spa and pedicure. I’m looking forward to visit the nail spa in the following days. Thanks for sharing!
I always treat myself to the salon or spa for my me-time. 🙂
