(SPOT.ph) Bright white walls, cushy chairs, and fluffy pillows: one peek into Pink Peony Nail Salon's glass-paneled doors would be enough to get anyone to decide to take a little time off from a busy day to sit down, relax, and get a quick pick-me-up pampering.
"We wanted it to be like being in your own bedroom," says Romina Sotto, who opened Pink Peony at the Bellitudo Lifestyle Strip in White Plains in early March. It's safe to say they succeeded-sitting in one of the nail salon's comfy chairs with music from greats like Ella Fitzgerald playing softly in the background, you're likely to feel so at home, you almost wouldn't want to leave. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the therapists at Pink Peony take their time with each treatment, letting you savor your me-time. Its location, away from the typical mall crowd, also adds to the salon’s quiet, relaxing atmosphere.
Planning to de-stress? Try one of the signature treatments: Pink Peony Velvet Feet (P745) includes a soak, a sea-salt scrub, a pedicure, and a 45-minute massage with almond oil. It goes perfectly with a Pink Peony Hand Massage (P210), which features a 30-minute massage from the tips of your fingers all the way up to your elbows. You'll get a choice between lotion, almond oil, or mint gel, but it's the lotion that's a must-try: called Pink Peony lotion, it's made exclusively for the salon and has a delicate, mildly floral scent that's sure to keep your hands smelling amazing-and feeling petal-soft-for hours. The lotion is just one of the salon's unique offerings: aside from the usual nail polish brands like Essie and OPI, you can try Sheswai Lacquer, which is free from chemicals like formaldehyde and toluene. Barielle skin and nail treatments will also be available soon.
Moms can bring their little princesses along for the Little Girl's Manicure or Pedicure (P130), and brides-to-be can get some pre-nuptial pampering with the salon's private party packages (starting at P8,000 for 4 to 5 people, including treatments, canapés, and refreshments).
