Who knew there was something like this in the middle of Makati CBD?
I was invited to check out the Perea branch of Posh Nails. It’s not a new branch (they have been there for just under a year), but they are launching a new service called Posh Spoiling with Watermelon mani-pedi. I was excited to try this because I never had a complete hand and foot treatment before.
The watermelon scent is so nice! Very summery indeed, and it definitely assuaged my anxieties about the foot treatment. I have the opposite of a foot fetish, and I usually don’t like my feet touched.
The treatment itself was very relaxing though. First my feet were submerged in some soapy water, then transferred into a bubbling foot bath thing. My legs were then propped up on a seat, then scrubbed down with a watermelon exfoliant then wrapped in towels. My arms were likewise scrubbed and wrapped. After being left like this for a few minutes, my attendant went back to buff the bottoms of my feet with a foot paddle/pumice stone.
A pedicure came next. I requested my toenails shaped into squares, and to please not cut off my cuticles. The attendant happily complied. I chose green to be my color for the day, and China Glaze Agro (a nice metallic olive green) went on my toes.
The exfoliant was then washed off. A matching watermelon moisturizer was applied, followed by a vigorous arm and leg massage. The manicure came last. To match my green toenails I chose Zoya Neely (a cool mint apple green) for my fingernails.
I really enjoyed the service! It’s very relaxing, perfect for an after-work treat. Posh Nails Perea is open until 10pm to accommodate the working women looking for some destressing. It’s also very near Glorietta and Greenbelt, with ample parking space. They also accept private sparties for 10-15 people. Here is a list of the services that they offer.
Do check them out! I am definitely planning to go back for some more pampering.
