Manicure Service at Studio Fix by Alex Carbonell Greenbelt 5Friday, January 30, 2015

Friday was spent on a date with my sister at Alex Carbonell's Studio Fix salon at Greenbelt 5. I have gone to this salon for a hair color a year and a half ago (check out my post HERE), but I wouldn't say that it was a good experience. Don't get me wrong though! A lot of people are happy with Studio Fix, I just found that Hairshaft and I were a better match when it comes to coloring.
So today, I came back to Studio Fix for a mani pedi while my sister gets her hair cut with Alex. I haven't been back to this salon since that day I had my hair colored, and this is the first time I'm going to try their mani pedi service.
Check out my awesome #notd after the break!
I really wanted something different for my nails this weekend, but I didn't have the patience to sit around in the salon just waiting for nails to dry. I planned to go to Posh Nails in Magallanes but I know that would take a long time and sitting around is not my cup of tea right now.
I love that their selection of nail polishes are mostly OPI. I love OPI! Although I had something in mind before I asked my sister to set me up with an appointment.
The day before, I went to Landmark and got myself a new set of Nail Foils. I have reviewed these nail foils before (you can view that post HERE), I actually like these because they work so well and they only cost PhP 19.75 per pack. Although the right most Nail Foil is PhP 29.75 per pack. They have so much designs to choose from (but not all are nice) and as long as you take care of your nails, they last about 3 days, 5 tops.
I mean, even though they did just last about 3 days, it's very cheap! That's about 2 pesos per nail, so really, not bad. If you want the really nice nail wraps, I would go for NCLA. They have top notch designs and they last so long too! More than a month, I was told.
If you want to know how to put them on though you can visit my other post on Nail Foils.
I had to cancel my pedi appointment because my back hurt already from sitting down. They overcharged me though, I paid PhP 400 for a manicure (no nail polish) which is just a cleaning. I just realized this when I got home and as it turned out they did charge me for the pedi I didn't get. Thank goodness their staff was nice so they will refund me the PhP 200 when I go back to the salon.
I love their work, very clean and my cuticles no longer existed without having to injure me with too much pushing or digging!
I am loving my nails for the weekend. They're fun and they have personality. No waiting and drying time, just really fuss free!
I can't wait to try the nail cover stickers from Glossy Blossom which was sent to me by Sprint Asia! I think I may just use them for next weekend! I would love to try NCLA's too though but I still have to travel quite a bit to get my hands on them.
I guess you can say that I had a good experience at Studio Fix with my nail cleaning service. They didn't charge me extra for having my nail foils attached so that's a plus for me. I guess it's safe to say that I would be going back to there if I want to have my nails done.
Hope you ladies have a fantastic weekend!
