Tip Toe Nail & Hair Spa

I have been deliberately ignoring my nails for the longest time and whilst super-short, naked nails didn’t bother me, it is always pleasant to have colours and properly manicured fingers. It does make a difference to the personal grooming part and making an impression.

The thing about going to nail parlours is – I hate having to face hard-selling manicurists and I dislike rejecting people and even having to open my mouth to turn them down. The beauty industry has been known to not sustain too long, hence all the more I wouldn’t want to sign a package to come to realise that they close down after that. Recently, I stumbled upon Tip Toe Nails Spa, a humble and cozy nail and scalp-care salon within my neighbourhood and I was pleased to know that they do not offer package (nor hard-sell) to customers unless requested!

Since it has been years since my regular manicures and pedicures, I requested for gelish for both so they will last longer even if I play my ukulele or do hikings. Before the visit, I sent a few nail inspirations images to Connie and after she saw my nails condition, she advised which are the designs that might suit me.

I specifically told them no too-girly nail designs for me and that means no/minimum pink and red. Here was what I got! Blue and white nails with stripes in light, dark blue, silver, gold and grey.

I have always wanted galaxy nails and I wouldn’t care if it is still trending or not. 🙂

I paid attention while the art was created, thinking that I may be able to steal a trick or two. Well, still too complicating for me! *sheepish grin*

I think their prices are pretty reasonable compared to the many nail salons in the area!
