Top 5 Things To Look for In a Nail Salon

When In Manila and  you are in search of the best nail salon, you can come to one in the south at BF Paranaque.  We all came from different boudoir shoots that day, and decided to give ourselves a break after a good day’s work.  

As to which Nail Salon to go to, since there are dozens out there, you may want to keep these in mind when looking for a great nail salon.

1. Location & Ambiance

If you want to relax and pamper yourself, one thing to consider is the ambiance.  It should be homey and chic at the same time.  The location must be accessible, where parking is no fuss so you could get right away to the pampering you deserve.  Toetally Nail It gave that and the right feel of Paris and girliness with its interiors.





 2.  Product Line Up

Having a wide selection of reliable brands makes your experience more fun as you get to choose from any color & kind.  The nail polish is arranged by color so its easier to choose.  There’s gel polish and some for kids too.  





 As to what we wanted done, we didn’t know what to choose with so many good options in front of us



We went for the Spa treatments :

The Signature Spa which used a strawberry buttercream mask (Hand Spa : 420 / Hand Spa & Foor Spa Package : 990)


The Creme De La Creme which is a peppermint  muscle therapy (Hand Spa : 380 / Hand Spa & Foor Spa Package : 890 )

As for the type of polish, there are lots to choose from :

  • Ombre Nails (even nails have it, not limited to hair!)
  • Glitter Gradient
  • Accent Nails
  • Caviar Manicure
  • Half Moon
  • Go Geometric

They’ve got great promos too going on.  Bring a friend and enjoy 20% off on any of their spa treatments.


3.  Service

 Go for friendly staff who smile a lot.


4.  Cleanliness

 Make sure equipment is clean and everything is orderly.


Here’s fellow When In Manila contributor & co-Boudoir Doll photographer Shayla Sanchez all excited for the treatment.


Leg scrub – ahhhh! 


Happy feet!


 Chairs are arranged cozily for girlfriend chat time.


Sherryl – fellow wedding photographer seems happy with what was being done with her feet!


And the finished products were :

 Shayla’s colors …


 … with the Caviar accent.



 Sherryl got a different twist to her tips.


And my little baby nails got the Glitter accent.



I personally loved mine because it literally gave that pop when holding my favorite Nikon camera on the job.  I think my photographs were prettier that week too 🙂

5.  Driven by Passion

But more than anything else, what we loved about Toetally Nail It was the passion behind it.  Charl the owner personally walked us through the menu where she even had her own hands & creations on showcase.  We shoot out of passion and we love people with passion for their craft to color our nails!





All in a day’s shoot and with pretty hands & feet to boot!
