Hello everyone! How long I've been out of the loop? Sorry to keep you all waiting but just like before, I'm still adjusting with the fact that I have to take care of two canines. One adult and one puppy whom I compare to a two-year old boy. Terrible twos indeed! Because of the stress that is slowly consuming my body, I decided to schedule an appointment in Pink Me Up Beauty Nail and Dry Bar. I've been hearing a good feedback when I did a research about this place and just like a fairy godmother who heard my thoughts, a deal came up in Deal Grocer last February and I couldn't pass up the chance to check out the place.
|Deal Grocer Deal of Pink Me Up Beauty Nail and Dry Bar.|
I have to remove my name and the redemption code for security purposes.
Last Sunday was my scheduled appointment, my friend and I went to Pink Me Up located in Lee Gardens Condominium. I purchased two vouchers as I was thinking to share it with my sister but her schedule the last time she was here in Manila was hectic so I decided to share it with a friend instead. The building is right after the first Petron Station you will see on your right side if coming from Edsa. Below the building, there's Security Bank and Starbucks. It's only a 5-10 minutes jeepney ride from Starmall.
I read somewhere before that it's like a maze before you can find Pink Me Up on 2nd floor of Lee Gardens Condominium but now it was easy breezy as they decided to put up a stand-up tarp to show you the way to the nail spa bar.
|There it is! Found it after a series of turns...|
Now, I'll be posting some pictures inside this nail and dry bar. I was not able to get a picture of my own as there are customers when we went there and the lightning inside is a little dim with all the curtains drawn. Good thing I stumbled on the photos taken by Paolo Feliciano where he was able to capture the place all lit up.
|You will notice that there are cabinets on the far end of the picture, that is the pantry for the Pink Me Up staff.|
The second curtain on the right side of this picture, has a massage chair.
I'm not sure how much they charge for that service.
|This is the focal point of the Pink Me Up. It's hard to miss this area as it screams, girly and princess!|
Would want this kind of office/study area in our home.
|Time to soak our feet.|
See what I told you earlier, their sink is tucked securely and neatly below the cushioned sofa.
Our feet was rinsed from the scrub and a moisturizing mask was applied then we were wrapped like a ham or chicken...
After 20-30 minutes, our feet was freed from all the towels and plastic. Imelda offered me a basket full of nail polish. I saw a lot of Orly and Essie with a few Ciate.
|Imelda suggested I used the nude/beige color by Orly. Normally, I would choose red but since I can't find a suitable shade of red that I like, I agree with her in using the color on my nails.|
Just like her previous acts, I felt that she wanted to get rid of me and attend to other customers or avail her much deserved break. It's not my fault that you scheduled us for 11am. After applying the nail polish on my feet, it was time to prep me up for the hand spa.
|Waiting for my hand spa...and there's Imelda, the staff attending to me which I 'm not happy with her service....|
Imelda came back to apply the nail polish on my fingers. I say she will be a perfect candidate for the fastest staff in in Pink Me Up.
|The effort I made to grown my nails....|
Yeah, I know it's not super long like the others but knowing me I have a habit of biting my nails so this is a milestone!
|My nail polished nails. Notice that my nails are not thoroughly covered by the nail polish.|
Here are some of their Nail Spa Services should you wish to visit them:

I still do recommend the place since Pink Me Up Beauty is clean, chic and you can actually relax as they play music that is just so right for you to unwind. They're using Orly, Essie and Ciate Nail Polish plus, I love their spa party packages! Perfect for bridal shower, birthdays and girl bonding. Apart from that, some staff are attentive. Proof is the staff of Pink Me up whose manning the reception area that Sunday, sent me a SMS yesterday informing me that I can drop by the place anytime to get my missing USB. I sent them a text message late afternoon on Sunday that I probably left my USB on the couch. Good thing they found it stuck at the back of the sofa to where I was seated. I'm glad that I didn't totally lost it . So thank you so much for that.
I apologize to Imelda if I mentioned her name but I just want to point out the flaws and things to improve if you want a happy customer. Or maybe it's just me because I availed a discounted deal. If that's the case, it's kind of disappointing on my part as I've been one of the few thousands who patronize Groupon deals.
