The design is eclectically Korean with all the cute furnishings. It all made up for a coordinated mix that felt right for this nail spa café. I found it amusing that they have this makeshift lamp inside their bathroom. Beside that lamp, there’s this owl photo with the caption “I’m aLIVE!”. Eerie in a cute way 😉
Before I got my nails done, I gotta eat first. One of the ladies there, who I believe was one of the owners, recommended their Mango Sandwich. And I’m glad I followed her recommendation. It was good! I didn’t expect the sandwich to be that filled. This consisted of egg, ham, cheese, mango and generous amounts of lettuce. I liked the addition of mango as it added this sweet taste to the sandwich. Very tasty! Also, the waxing paper that holds the sandwich was very cute. 🙂
On to the nail spa experience! To be honest, this is my 2nd time having my nails professionally done. And it’s been awhile since I last applied coat on my nails. Whenever I do it, it always ends up looking messy. That’s why I look up to people who can do it with much ease. I was observing how this guy did mine which was very precise and clean. And the result…
TADA! Since I got a discount card from the Tree Shade Spa, this only cost me P300 (original price: P600). 🙂
This place is quite far from the city but the service was good. The price of the food is a bit pricey. I’m not totally sure what the going rate is for a manicure but my friend said it was pretty cheap as compared to the prices in Manila. Still, this is a good place to drop by and experience the cuteness of it all (food, nail spa and ambiance combined).
