Kitchenails Trinoma: Premium Polishes

If you read my previous blogpost about Kitchenails http://www.krishgeek.com/?p=1530, It is a brainchild of the owner who’s love for business and culinary emerged into this unique spa and salon concept. They recently opened 2 branches at the South (Alabang Town Center) and here at the North (Trinoma).

The hardest part of being a girl is choosing what color to be painted on our nails. Well it highly depends on your personality.

Kitchenails Trinoma: SCRUB AND SALON

Kitchenails Trinoma – SCRUB AND SALON

At Kitchenails, its all about pampering you like a real princess – since they address their customers as “PRINCESS” and you might feel the urge to grab some bite to eat during your sesh because everything is all gourmet inspired, from the interiors and the equipment they used. But for me right after, I just felt so relax with the treatments I got and just wanted to go home and chill on my cozy bed.

 

Fusion of love for culinary, business and wellness, Kitchenails is the brainchild of Ms. Jean Uvero. Kitchenails have also a branch at Alabang Town Center that had just opened recently as well. And Kitchenails is familiar around Katipunan area as well.

Now this time, Kitchenails brings color and feeds our senses at the North. Located at the 3rd floor of Trinoma (Wing near Powermac center and Garden area). Glad to be attending the opening last January 28, 2016 and Thanks to #TEAMALDOUSPR for the invite! (Hi Aldous!)

First impression is how well put together the concept is and it is definitely a unique SCRUB AND SALON place. They do not label themselves as nailspa and massage place but they do offer mani /pedi and massage as well – that’s  how they differentiate themselves with the different wellness and beauty spots popping up in the metro. The ambiance and vibe of the place is very relaxing and cozy because of their comfortable couches (they have single and wide couches for group of 3) and the place is spacey.

The rates still fall under “affordable” category, The most common Best entree:  Manicure -PHP 350 , Pedicure -PHP 450 and both PHP 750.  They have SINGLE SERVE (Design for 1 serving at a time, for you) and ENTREE (SELECT), A flavorful total experience designed to soothe and relax you – You choose your scrub, mask, oil and aperitif.

Their best sellers are under the CHEF SPECIALS (A unique and delectable experience for luxurious pampering). Manicure -PHP 500, Pedicure -PHP 600 and both PHP 950.

Before the treatment, they asked for your order with what service(s) you choose and how you prefer it. It’s like how you order in a restaurant.

I chose the KEY LIME PIE (best seller under CHEF SPECIAL and I really like Lime/Citrus scent) – Citrus blend of clean lime, lime blossom and lemon grass in ultra fresh, and modern scent. Great as an all around spa treatment!

Like I said they used baking and kitchen tools as equipment for their treatments – They started  to soak my hands on this baking tray, then they used a whisk for mixing and applied the scrub and mask as you were being iced like a cake (you could really smell the scrub and mask while being applied). And then they wrapped my arms like I was a human gourmet haha – for the musk to be absorbed and waited on it (They used a timer also like in baking). Same as for my feet, but they used a frying pan instead. After that you choose your kind massage (aperitif): Acupressure, Swedish, Detox and Signature). I chose DETOX – to help burn my fats. And then proceeded with my mani and pedi. The treatments took like less than an hour. The ingredients they use for their treatments are all organic.

Other treatments under CHEF SPECIAL:

LEMON SQUARES– A dash of spicy ginger and soothing lemongrass, provides a perfect escape.

CANDIED ORANGES – Unique and incredible blend of mandarin honey citrus and spices that will surely tingle and tickle your senses.

SPICED PLUM PANNACOTTA – Delightful and delectable fusion of sweet vanilla and wild plum, this scent is a big hit for life’s sweet moments.

VERY BERRY MUFFIN – Rejuvenating blend of berries, citrus and sugarcane, popular for both men and women. This treatment is a winner!

So I highly recommend Kitchenails,  if you are looking for a unique place to get pampered, chill with your friends and take instagram worthy shots and selfies with your besties. It’s all worth it! You deserve to be treated like a ROYALTY 🙂
