About The Nail Artelier

My nails after the session!

The Nail Artelier has spent the last year catering to hipsters in Haji Lane with its quirky nail art designs and creative staff. This popular nail joint has been frequented by several local celebrities and featured in numerous magazines including Female and Her World for their exquisite nail art and customizable designs. All their nailists are certified by The Pink Room International Nail Academy and have ample experience in nail art.

Their latest move to North Bridge Road is merely a few shops away from their old location at Haji Lane but boasts a more spacious interior and shop front with room to accommodate even more customers.

My nails were in desperate need of some pampering and I couldn’t wait to test The Nail Artelier’s reputation out for myself.

Service at The Nail Artelier

We were greeted by Ying, the director of The Nail Artelier, who ushered us to our seats to start our pampering with a foot spa. The Nail Artelier offers premium foot spa services for $45. Customers have the option of either a whitening or moisturising treatment.

Subsequently I got to try Sole Rejuvenation, a treatment unique to The Nail Artelier that helps to get rid of the hard skin on the heels of our feet. The coarseness of the buffing tip can also be altered to suit the state of the customer’s skin and a new one is used for each customer, ensuring high hygiene standards.

I have to say at this point I really need to commend Eileen for her professionalism in dealing with a complete klutz like myself. After our pedicure, we had to move to the manicure tables for our manicure. In the process I destroyed the polish on 5 toes in total (oops) and Eileen re-did them all without complaint.

Next up, my manicure! Take a look at Ying’s nails, I couldn’t believe they were natural. She told me it took a lot of maintenance and multiple coats of gel polish over a few weeks to obtain the desired effect. I asked Ying what her most difficult nail art request was and she told me fans of a Korean fan club once requested for the faces of their idols (!!!).

We were also served tea while we had our nails done. We had the option of either chamomile or earl grey that came served in these exquisite cups with adorable covers.

I was so satisfied with the outcome of my gel manicure! I love bright colours and chose one with flamingoes. Ying only needed to take several glances at the design before drawing it free-hand on my nails. The whole process took less than 20 minutes and I must say I was thoroughly impressed.  

Two happy girls and our gorgeous nails!

The Verdict

I’d definitely recommend The Nail Artelier for their service and reasonable prices. Their nailists aren’t confined by the designs you find in their magazines. Customers can bring in designs of anything they like and nailists at The Nail Artelier will transform them into nail art.
