Last Sunday made for a wonderful opportunity for a little mother-and-daughter time at a nail salon, Bellis Nail. We were invited by Ling, the owner of the salon, to try out their manicure and pedicure services and I took the chance to finally try out the popular ombre nails trend. The salon is located just opposite I12 Katong Mall (Singapore) and is easy to find. It is also a pretty new one, having just opened for business last month.
The interior is pretty cosy and relaxing, with an overall exotic Asian feel. I especially loved the concept of allowing customers to nap while we get our nails done, though it’s only for those of us who are having a manicure. As for a pedicure, you’ll start with a foot soak and a scrub using a unique natural rose (or lavender) and rice scrub.
I tried the foot scrub too, after which some moisturiser was applied. My skin (and my mother’s) turned from rough to super smooth! We were both really surprised at what a nice foot soak and scrub could do; Almost all our callouses were gone! Wow.
Of course, nothing could beat the gelish manicure that I did! It took an entire two hours and a whole lot of layering and precise adding of crystals. But the effort was well worth it. I picked the colours, Bellis Nail did everything else.
At the moment, Bellis Nail is having a Chinese New Year promotion. Well, it’s not exactly a promotion but they do have manicure designs in the lucky colours that match your individual horoscope for the year 2013 according to the Chinese zodiac. Here is their current price list and some examples of the designs for this year’s Chinese New Year:
