Pastel nail houses in the metro


Picture the color schemes of a Disney princess film: pastel on ballgown after ballgown. Creamy pastel hues have always been associated with classic, regal feminine ideals, because these colors feel so dreamy and romantic to look at. 

Perhaps that’s why some nail houses deck their interiors in beautiful pastel colors. If your next makeover sesh with the girls is fast approaching, why not plan the party in an establishment that is not just well-reviewed, but also pastel-themed to unleash the girls’ inner princesses?

Here’s a list of 10 pastel-themed salons around Metro Manila that your squad can choose from.

This pastel nail house caught our eyes with its creamy yellow and pink interiors inspired by the villages of the South of France. They are also committed to providing an environmentally-conscious pampering experience with their Vegan (P90) and Guilt-Free (P90) nail lacquer add-ons. So it’s great news for people who are sensitive to regular nail polish, because French Tips says that its nail services are free of harmful fumes and toxins.

KathNails by KCMB is definitely how Philippine teen idol Kathryn Bernardo’s nail salon should look like – pastel with a touch of regal in its choice of fixtures. The salon is a product of Bernardo’s fondness for nail polish, and the name KathNails is inspired by the word ‘KathNiel’, a portmanteau of her love team with Daniel Padilla.

For instance, they have plenty of options for a bachelorette makeover, and we love their Party Package Themed Service (P4,000). This package can be enjoyed by a maximum of 12 persons for 3 hours, and even includes free hand and foot paraffin for the celebrant. Themed manicures and pedicures are named according to your favorite desserts and beverages such as Green Tea, Coffee, Chocolate Lovers, Margarita, Cremee Brulee, and Citrus.
