A lot of exciting developments are coming up in the nail care industry. This 2012, nail addicts, young and old alike, will be thrilled with the cornucopia of breakthroughs advancing through the world of nail art. Leading us through this vast expansion is Beauty & Butter Nail Lounge. Opened just this year, Beauty & Butter is the hippest destination for fashionable nails and pampering. Their guiding philosophy is all about self-expression by way of beautification. It’s no surprise that services include instant gratification via foot spas, paraffin treatments, customizable nail art, facials and hair removal.
Upon entering the spa, you’d instantly be transported to a whimsical wonderland. Pop art graphics adorn the wall, while quirky movies and cartoons are shown on the huge flat-screen TVs. The interiors are both fun and comfortable with big reclining lounge chairs, soft pillows and foot rests. Another wall boasts of shelves containing the top nail care brands used. The place is colorfully designed, giving off a very playful feel.
Cleanliness is the number one priority. All stainless steel instruments are sterilized after every use, and nail technicians disinfect their hands before attending to every client. Clients can choose the products used for the treatments from the wall. While you have your nails done, the highly trained and very friendly staff make sure you feel comfortable by offering robes, drinks and more pillows.
Beauty & Butter offers ultra pampering packages for both hands and feet. But the fashionable and newest services to try are the following:
Gel Nail Polish: Compared to regular nail polish, gel nail is the solution for the busy Filipina. Gel polish dries faster and stays on your nails longer. It’s odorless and lightweight formula is less likely to chip, crack or fade—perfect for active women or for those who are just plain butterfingers! The high shine finish will also keep your nail polish looking fresh. It can also keep for weeks without the worry of staining your nails. When you finally want a fresh layer of color, return to the salon to remove and replace your gel polish. Prices start at P590 for the Standard Gel Polish and P1,200 for the Orly Gel Polish.
SpaRitual Organic Treatments: Beauty & Butter takes the vegan lifestyle to a whole new level through its luxurious organic treatments using the SpaRitual product line. SpaRitual products and polish offers the only vegan, paraben-free, organic system of treatment for the body, hands and feet. This means it’s perfect for pregnant moms and children because it veers away from all the unwanted toxins that can be absorbed by the body. Using organic products does not only help the environment but also promotes overall well-being. While the vegan products effectively improve the skin, the aroma from the essential oils together with the technician’s massage strokes improve energy circulation throughout the body. All spiritual products use vegan, wild-crafted and organic ingredients. Prices start at P700 for the Organic Manicure and Pedicure, and P800 for the Organic Foot Spa which comes with a free organic pedicure.
Royal Highness Facial Treatments: This premium facial uses a highly effective mask that covers every inch of the face except the nostrils! Using iSkin New York Products, it stimulates new cell growth, improves circulation and helps rebuild collagen to restore the skin’s elasticity and firmness. This facial is truly something to try, as each mask addresses different concerns like sensitive skin, sagging skin, acne and tired skin. Facials range from P750-P999.
