Do you know why moms flock every salon in town? More than beauty, salons provide us with temporary respite from the hustle and bustle of motherhood. From hair to nails, these salons are sanctuaries and retreat spaces for us.
A nice manicure and pedicure is a lovely treat and we are lucky that these services are affordable in the Philippines. However, these services are not regulated especially when it comes to hygiene. I had my own experience of enduring an excruciating ingrown in my big toe from a bad service and heard horror stories of clients getting fungal infections from dirty tools.
Thus, you have to choose more than a nail expert but a trusted name in the industry. Find a nail salon with a name they themselves take pride and cherish to stay on top of the industry hereby providing nothing but the best from hygiene to over-all experience.
When it comes to nails, nail.a.holics is the name to trust.
With almost 10 years of experience under their belt, nail.a.holics is no doubt the country’s go-to-urban nail and spa destination. Finally, the nail expert has arrived in Iloilo with their spacious and Hamptons-themed nail salon at the Lower Ground Level of SM City Iloilo.

You will love the space. Even if you are beside someone else, you don’t feel someone is trespassing your personal space. If you are with your bff, mom or spouse, this is your best spot.
With freelance writing, kids, and a spouse who often goes on out-of-town business trips, pampering sessions are things I can’t say no. Because, hey I deserve it!

nail.a.holics offers more than manicure, pedicure, and foot spa. This is the advantage of going to a nail salon rather than the generic beauty salon as they specialize in nails. When you visit your nearest nail.a.holics branch or check out their website, you will be impressed with the different options when it comes to services and packages that will suit your specific needs.
I picked Lush Lagoon, a package of manicure, pedicure, and foot spa with foot massage. A big advantage of going to nail.a.holics is their staff – well-trained and professionals. My nail technicians were Anjil and Rechel.
It has been eons since I had a foot spa, you can just imagine the callus I had. The hand massage was soothing for me who types all day. At this nail salon, they use a Korean brand nail polish and for a small additional fee, you can have OPI nail lacquer.
Always look for the steriliser in every nail salon you go to. I like how nail.a.holics show you that they are sterilizing the exact tools they will use for your service.
I chose OPI for my nail polish. Next time, I will try their gel manicure and write a separate review. And maybe not very soon, I will try nail art – I never tried this nail trend.
My package took an hour and a half and it was soothing. Even if they didn’t turn off the lights, the seats were soft and I truly had a quick nap and relaxed my busy mind. I took this photo while I had my leg waxed at Hey Sugar.
As a one-stop shop for anything about nails, you can purchase and use other products like Zoya, famous for being a formaldehyde-free polish.
Other products you can buy at nail.a.holics are these product line of Argan Oil.
Thank you nail.a.holics for the pampering time and for the beautiful nails. It is hard to find a nail salon you can trust and I’m glad you are here in Iloilo.
