Dropping by your local nail salon is one of the simplest ways to relax and destress. It's quicker than a full body massage or a trip overseas, so it's perfect for someone who's always on-the-go. No wonder celebrities love it, to the point where it has become top of mind for stars who want to venture into business. If you're due for some pampering, here are five celebrity-owned nail spas you can consider visiting:
1. Kathryn Bernardo: KathNails by KCMB
Where to find it: SM North Edsa The Block, SM Mall of Asia, Ayala Malls Cloverleaf, Robinsons Place Manila
KathNails is a joint project between Kathryn and her mom, Min Bernardo. They opened their first branch in SM North Edsa last year, but it has since expanded to four branches in Metro Manila. On top of affordable nail care services and packages, it also offers massages, threading, and waxing.
2. Nadine Lustre: Nails.Glow
Where to find it: Waltermart North Edsa
As a frequent visitor of nail spas, Nadine once said in an interview that it was only fitting for her to have her own. In 2017, she went from being Nails.Glow's main ambassador to one of their franchisees. Aside from nail care, Nails.Glow also offers body care services, hair removal, and eyelash extensions.
3. Liza Soberano: HOPE Hand & Foot Wellness
Where to find it: 74 Tomas Morato Ave, Creekside Square, Quezon City
Since she was a newbie actress, going to nail spas has always been one of Liza's favorite forms of relaxation. She expanded the idea of opening a nail spa by opting for a wellness center. "HOPE focuses on wellness as a mindset, lifestyle, and a ritual. Initially targeting the hands and feet because like I said they're amongst the most abused parts of our body," the actress tells Preview.
4. Carla Abellana: Posh Nails
Where to find it: Ayala Malls Feliz
Another actress-slash-entrepreneur is Carla Abellana, who manages a franchise of Posh Nails that opened early this year. That said, she isn't all that new to the nail spa business, having put up her own back in 2014.
5. RR Enriquez: ReJuva Aesthetics & Laser Center
Where to find it: 38 Timog Avenue, Quezon City
Ex-Wowowee host RR Enriquez is the CEO of her own skincare center and nail spa called ReJuva. The center offers a variety of services you probably won't expect at a nail spa. Clients can get a mani-pedi, a facial, and get their eyebrows microbladed all in one place!
