Sponsored Review: How dolling up your nails makes a huge impact on your confidence level

9/01/2013




What inspires me to write this article?

Woman nowadays spends a fortune on dolling themselves, buying make-up, doing their hair and having their focus shifted on their clothes and even shoes! But they often neglect their nails. (I have to admit i often make the same mistake too) Let me share with you some tips on how to love them more!

Its always the first impression that counts. (Agree?) Imagine yourself walking up to this gentleman and extending a hand shake, be it the occasion it may be. What is the first thing thy man notice? Yes! Your fingers. (Okay, for ladies maybe if there is any "wedding ring" if the man is handsome)

How do you care for your nails:

1. Trim your nails at least once a week... or as required.

2. Trim your nails if it breaks or tears.

3. Use nail strengtheners or oils to improve your nail condition.

4. Allow some breathing time for your nails after you have done your nails. (Do not keep on painting them, as this may cause your nails to dry out and cause yellowness)

5. Use massage oils to massage your cuticles and nourish your nails.

Some don't do on your nails:


1. Don't ever bite your nails! I think its disgusting and unhygienic.

2. Cut your nails at night. Cause you can accidentally hurt yourself.

3. Grow your nails too long. Especially if you need to use the keyboard often, you will end up hurting them.

4. Remove the skin/cuticles of your nails till it bleeds. Try to make use of the proper tools or seek a manicurist if you need a touch up.

5. Don't forget to wash the inside of your nails whenever you wash your hands. Bacterial loves to hide there.

By now if you agree with me, you can proceed to read more about my nail pampering experience. Special thanks to Yanz and Ya Xin of Absolutely Nails for dolling up my nails :)



Absolutely Nails is not hard to locate. They are located just opposite of Marina Parade Hawker Center. Walk towards the end of the row of shop houses and you will find them.



Hall of fame


This is the hall of fame of some other bloggers who have patronized their shop! Do you recognize them? My face will be up there the next time you walk pass their shop.
Do look out for it when you pass by their shop!



That is the happy me, anxiously waiting for my manicurist to come and attend to me.



Look at the wall of nail polishes! I love the way they display them which makes it such a colorful place to be in.



Nail color palettes


Yanz came back with the wide arrange of choices for me to pick and choose what I would like to do with my nails. Which i will not reveal now. I actually quite liked the cartoon, ribbon, floral and spotty ones. Guess which one i choose?




Look at how much work went into this? Thank you Ya Xin. (If i never guess wrongly?)
My feet are happy now!



I left Yanz to design my nails according to her wish with the criteria that no neon yellow or green was allowed on my nails. Later you'll see that she comes out with something which suit my personality to a T.

Through our chat, I realize that Yanz brings with her 4 years of experience being a manicurist. Its no wonder she is extremely meticulous and she can be quite a perfectionist who repeatedly check and ensure the same and design is aligned. She is very friendly and even reminded me to keep my toe nails short so as not to hurt my feet. I like her service and attitude to her profession, this is something we all must learn from her.

Excited to see the end results?




Ya Xin's choice of color for me is a maroon, bloody red as my hubby calls it.
This color is LOVE!



This is Yanz's creation. She made use of simple colors and a little design but its
so nicely done! By the way, this design is not found on the template so I really appreciate her for this. The whole session takes about 1.5 hours.
