Feeling so down and stuck at home? Stressed from work? Feel so ugly and sticky in this kind of weather? I know, I went through all that and more. Don't worry though because I've seen this new fancy place at the 3rd Floor of the newly built Hemady Square Building right beside the Christ the King Church in E. Rodriguez, Quezon City. I got the pampering I deserve after all that work and play I did the previous week.
Now, don't get me wrong. I don't normally go to nail spas because I think it's too girly. I don't want to tell you to do the same. Men need clean nails though, so having a manicure and pedicure is just as normal as a haircut these days. If you're still afraid to go to one, this one isn't going to scare you. It's upscale feel is just right. Don't be afraid of the colorful interiors because you need that like endorphins. I proceeded inside with only one thing in my mind, that was to relax and get my nails done. Simple and achievable, right?
You'll be greeted in the front counter by the owner herself, Ms. Alyssa Sy. Just like her spot, she's warm and very friendly. This goes the same with her staff which is a must in services like this. She suggested I get a full body massage when I was expecting foot pampering that afternoon. I gladly said yes and tell you about that later. They have the price list and services already listed on the counter but you can always ask for what they can do for you or suggest stuff to get pampered with. The room smelled wonderful too which I think is because they've got mini lights with peppermint aroma in one part of the room. It was calming, soothing and happy at the same time. Wouldn't get that anywhere right? :)
Seating is comfortably available on both sides of the room. It can probably sit around 10 people at the same time. This would be the ideal setting for a nail spa party. It would also be great if you want to veer away from the usual bridal shower like an alternate venue if you want a small gathering to ensue. You have one side for those who want a more sturdy royal seating, whilst the other can be good for those who want to slouch around and want it softer.
The usual zen music is there but you can always request for songs you prefer. It's an audio - video thing so I'm sure you won't miss out on TV programs if you need to watch your favorite telenovela or movie when available. If you need emergency internet connection, the place has wifi so just ask for it but really... you are here to relax so put that phone on silent and enjoy the experience being disconnected. Get back to the action when you're done!
Make Me Blush also has hair services. Alyssa is a great make up artist and hair stylist. She's also trained and certified so you know how that goes. Though you can't just walk in everyday for this, you must set an appointment where Alyssa can arrange for you. A call would do, I'll give you the phone number to call in a bit. Meanwhile, it was time for my massage ^_^
Their massage services are pretty big. They've got it arranged by 30/60/90 minutes. From Head, Back, Hand and Foot massages you can expect them concentrate on the specific area you want to get taken cared of. Swedish, Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Combination or Stress Buster... they've got different kinds and packages that would suit your need. My eyes lit up when the Deep Tissue Massage was mentioned and said "I'll have that, thank you Ma'am." and smiled all the way to the room in the back. Their beds were kinda velvety. You have the usual and the comfort room just beside it. After the massage, I almost dozed off. It was nice and relaxing, I immediately thought of going back again just for that. The attendant was also nice and she was explaining everything when I asked a lot of questions about the massage. Did I say I was going back there? Hehe of course!
Nail services were impeccable. Pedicure was a breeze and my feet didn't get murdered. I love how meticulous they were in taking care of the nails. Huffed and buffed in the right places. Plus, my friend Ruth had a blast with the colors they had on the shelves. It's all complete! Don't you just frown on some other nail places that show you thousands of style templates but ends that they don't have the colors? Hehe. It's not gonna happen here. Aside from that, she's also got some colorful bags sold in the shop. That would totally complete your look!
For people who live nearby, please come and visit. For those who are from other cities, they have parking available so it'll be worth the trip. I had a great massage, got my nails done... and it doesn't take a genius to tell that it was damn good. Clean, simple, relaxing and very affordable. Call them for appointments, thank me later!
