One of the little luxuries I love spoiling myself with is spending time at a spa — whether to have massage treatments or beauty treatments like foot spa with manicure and pedicure. This was exactly my agenda when I headed to Lulu Nails & Dry Bar.
One thing I consider the most in spas is space. Huge space. Here, you won’t have any problems hearing other clients’ noise (e.g. while they’re on the phone, etc.). In fact, in both instances that I’ve had my pampering here, I had the whole spa all to myself! That’s because I chose to go here around 2 to 3 in the afternoon, which is such a perfect time to have a relaxing time.
Trivia: I gave myself a nickname before — I am Lulu. In fact, my first blog prior Dollhouse Diary was called Lulu and Teacups. Lulu is synonymous to beauty, sweetheart and dream amongst others. And this gave an even more meaningful reason why I hold this nails and dry bar close to my heart.
Bathrobes and LaZboy? Yes, please! I was wearing jeans and it can’t be rolled up to my knees. The nice staff offered me to use their bathrobe so I can have utmost comfort throughout the whole duration of my pampering session.
For this visit, apart from their Deluxe mani and pedi, I wanted to try one of their Lulu Spa Treatments called For The Love of Chocolates Luxury Spa.
Calling all chocolate lovers! Here is a treatment made to satisfy your cravings in a healthy and luxurious way. Enjoy a minty chocolate scrub followed by a chocolate covered strawberry mask wrap and a rich butterscotch moisturizer that will surely melt your stress away. Sealed with our decadent Nutella mint mist for a delicious and satisfying ending.
Everything smelled delicious like chocolate, indeed. Truly a great way to relax your exhausted legs and feet while transporting you to chocolate heaven while enhancing your sense of smell.
All corners of Lulu Nails & Dry Bar exudes great comfort and a lap of luxury. Stay connected as you use the salon’s free Wi-Fi or pass the time watching romantic flicks like I did. I had this flat screen all to myself and of course I wouldn’t choose any other movie than 27 Dresses. I’m still on the “once a bride, always a bride” high.
Chanel, Dior, YSL — designer nail polish brands that have made manicures and pedicures even more luxurious. There are endless polish choices! You will also be offered to choose between hot coffee, juice or ginger brew while getting spoiled.
Elegant, spacious and boasting a beautiful pop art theme, Lulu is truly a chic haven perfect for urbanites looking for a spot for pampering. It also has a basement for hassle-free parking — a definite plus especially in the busy Greenhills area!
It was my 2nd time here and definitely not the last since I had such a pleasant time on both occasions. Kudos to the uber accommodating, polite and well-trained nail technicians, not to mention the very nice owner (or co-owner), Irene.
Craving for an indulgent pampering? Why not try Lulu Nails & Dry Bar. Highly recommended!
ALERT: They even have a great ongoing promo over at Deal Grocer.
