I'm back once again, sorry for the lack of updates as I've been a lil busy getting life in order.
Anywho I promised I'd do a post on my nails, where I got it done and by whom. I'm glad to say I've found an extremely good nail parlor that takes into account making sure you're comfortable and that the designs done on your nails suit your taste! Introducing... Autumn Nail Spa @ Far East Plaza.
Autumn Nail Spa is located at the top level of FEP, pretty close to the infamous chicken rice stall. A small shop which caters to 7-10 customers at one time, the lady boss is a China lady who ensures all her staff are well taken care of (You will notice that during your time there).
I was never a fan of gel extensions. In fact, I've always thought it would be a hinderance to daily activities like washing your hair, writing, even typing (like right now)... However it's something you'd get used to after some time.
The first design I did were turquoise floral nails. I showed Ana (The name of my manicurist- She's FANTASTIC) the design I wanted and she did an exact replica! Very very pleased with my nails, I decided to head back to her once my extensions grew out, which took about 3 weeks. This design cost me around $40 excluding the gel polish. And no, it never chipped!
If you take real good care of your gel extensions, Ana said they'd last you arnd 3 months. Do note that you'd need to spend a good amount of time there though! I spent about 4 hours doing the extension + design and I nearly died.
The second design I did cost me a heftier price tag- $55. The design was a tad more intricate which required her to use a paintbrush to painstakingly recreate the splatter patterns.
The best part is the staff will not force you to purchase packages unless they feel it's more worth it for you. They're friendly and extremely careful in ensuring the best job is done so I can vouch for that!
So if you'd ever need a place to go for a manicure, more so with intricate designs, head on over to Autumn Nail Spa to look for Ana. A petite short-haired girl, she's extremely patient and friendly:)
However it can get pretty crowded and waiting time could range from half an hour to 2 hours so it's best you book an appointment beforehand!
PS: This post was in no way endorsed by Autumn Nail Spa, it is my personal opinion and I felt the need to share it with you guys.
