You don’t need an excuse to treat yourself to some good ol' self-care, nor do you need a specific day to do it.
Whether you’re putting in extra hours at the office or on your way home after a really long day, here are five Instagram-worthy nail salons in various parts of the metro to satisfy both your aesthetic and indulgent sensibilities.
1. Nail Spa, Alabang and San Juan
Decked out with soft, inviting couches, chic rugs, and throw pillows, Nail Spa is basically your best friend’s living room—that is, if your best friend had an in-house nail salon with a wide range of OPI, Essie, China Glaze, or Zoya polishes to choose from. Your pampering treatment at Nail Spa starts with some complimentary tea, hot or iced to match your mood.
Their Pamper Hands & Feet Package is perfect after a long day. Pamper your hands with a nail cleaning, fifteen-minute massage, and manicure, then pamper your feet with a soak, scrub, twenty-minute massage, and pedicure.

With damask floors and plush purple interiors, St. Nails really makes you feel like the royalty that you are. Get ready for princess-level pampering with their Mani-Pedi with Hand Paraffin + Footlogix Foot Spa.
This blissful two-hour indulgence involves an exfoliating seaweed scrub with callus scrubbing for those stubborn rough patches and mousse cream to revitalize even the driest, most sensitive skin for your feet. It also comes with a relaxing paraffin wax treatment for your hardworking hands. An expertly rendered mani-pedi in the Sally Hansen, Morgan Taylor, or ORLY shade of your choice caps off your long day and leaves you ready to take on the next.
