Feel like you need a pamper day, but don’t want to spend a lot? Try out Titas of Manaila’s #affordabeautiful nail services and get the best bang for your buck! Owned by siblings Joane, Englebert, and Angeli Chua, this nail salon offers the best nail services at eye-opening prices!
At 59 pesos, you can get the practical Tita nail service, which is best for women on the go. Titas of Manaila also happens to be the first salon to provide premium quality services at such low prices in Tondo. Not only that, their nail technicians are all part of the government’s 4Ps (Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program).
I tried out the the Glamorous Tita service, which includes the following:
A luxe paraffin heat treatment to make those hard working hands (and feet!) smoother and whiter.
A detoxyfying foot soak to relieve all the lakads you have been to.
A 15-minute massage that was so relaxing, I wanted to extend it for an hour (oops). And of course, some nail polish to give your nails some life. I got to take my manicure to the next level with some studs and foil tape at only costs 1 peso to 20 pesos per nail. Super sulit, diba?
I also loved how I felt so cared for in the salon. They have you fill up a sheet of paper where you get to tick off how you want your cuticles to be handled (cut or pushed back), whether you want to apply merthiolate or not, and more choices to suit your personal nail care needs.
By the way, the salon’s manager, Joane Chua, was a former food technologist; so rest assured their nail tools are sterilized and doused in hospital-grade alcohol before every service starts.
Each service comes with a free drink, too! Hydrate while getting your nails done with your choice of water, lemonade, brewed coffee, or iced coffee.
You can also bring kids with you because they provide services for them, too. Also, if you’re really living up to your busy Tita life, they offer semi-permanent makeup services and skin enhancing treatments.
Go ahead! Give yourself a well-deserved pampering day without worrying about the service (they were gentle!) or the bill. Because you deserve it, Tita! ;)
