With only a few days left before Christmas, we’ve already showered you with suggestions on what to wear and what beauty looks to try. However, a double-tap worthy #OOTD doesn’t simply end with your choice of makeup and stilettos. We wait all year round for the Yuletide season to finally hit the calendar, so every single detail counts─from head to toe, that is. And now that you’ve got the perfect outfit plus the holiday makeup to match it with, all that’s left is to zoom in on those pretty hands and feet. Badly manicured tips can ruin your entire look, you know?
With all that in mind, of course, we in Style Bible need to heed our own advice, too. So, we took a trip down to Edades Complex in Rockwell to visit the newly-opened Maison by Nail Spa and got our much-needed pampering done.
Designed by Nix Alañon, Maison by Nail Spa is a haven in the city offering a quick escape where one can relax and enjoy traditional nail services, including a stimulating aromatherapy, meticulous cleaning and a pampering massage.
Cozy tents are available for private services.
They also have the most stylish and fashion-forward colors from the nail care industry’s best and most premium brands─ from Essie to OPI, Deborah Lippmann to Illamasqua, Chanel to Christian Louboutin. Look, we even spotted the exact shade of Loub's signature red soles, Rouge Louboutin!
A glossy mani and pedi are exactly what we need to prepare for the coming festivities, and this cozy gem of a nail salon gave us all that and more. Want some ideas on which holiday nails to try this season? Read on and see what we did with ours.
If you’re more into the classic look, opting for clean cut nails painted with a neutral shade will serve you well. How about channelling white Christmas on your tips? If you’re already planning to sport a festive outfit with glitters and sparkles, toning it down a notch with your choice of nail polish sounds pretty reasonable, don’t you think?
TRY: OPI Gel Color in My Vampire Is Buff
Now, if you’re feeling a little more adventurous, we suggest you try something new this holiday season. Take your white polish to the next level and treat your tips to a velvety delight! This should last for a couple of days and will surely add a special touch (and posh texture) to your Christmas Eve #OOTD.
TRY: Formula X for Sephora in White Matter for the base coat, sprinkled with white velvet for the finishing touch
‘Tis is the season to look festive! Another way to wear some sparkles for the holidays is via your fingertips. Sport something fun and go for that shiny bottle of glittered nail lacquer you know you’ve been itching to try.
TRY: OPI Gel Color in Polka.Com
Bring out your playful personality and get some layering done. Start with a solid color for your base coat, then inject some fun to it by applying a glittery polish. Go on, now’s your chance to show off your creativity!
TRY: Orly in White Tips for the base coat, 3CE Nail Lacquer in GT15 for the glittered finish
