French Tips Eco Chic Nail Salon opens in SM Aura.
Ever since I have embraced going green and started choosing non-toxic things, from the food we eat, to home products, to things we slather our bodies with, it has remained to be a challenge to find the right place to cater this lifestyle.
French Tips, SM Aura Premier
Take nail salons, for instance. It wasn’t until recently that I chanced upon a true blue, eco-friendly nail prettifying corner. I cannot be more thrilled to get first dibs on the nail salon offerings of French Tips, as I swung by to immerse myself to some nail pampering at French Tips in SM Aura Premier during its grand launch.
I came inside French Tips Nail Salon impressed as I found myself welcomed by its luxurious French elegance. I totally love how pretty the place is! The high back armchairs straight away summoned for me to come indulge to the pampering that I was there for.
“Me time” was in order. And this, who can refuse?
The intricately-designed ceiling is love!
I was an sneakers, and I was hardly ready. But that didn’t matter as soon as I soaked my feet in. 🙂
From the color of the year, Greenery, I went to drastic WaterColors in Abyss by Honeybee Gardens

My digits are fierce and ready for the weekend!
Healthy Cocktails Menu: Cranberry & cream cheese bruschetta, Sundried tomato, basil & white cheese skizza, Chicken & walnut crepe, Vegetable lasagna, Strawberry cupcake, Blueberry yogurt tart, Raspberry iced tea, Lemonade-lavender juice, Blue pea & cucumber juice.
I loved that the food served during the launch was consistent with the overall theme of the nail salon – all natural!
I have yet to find a salon I loved as much. The interior and products used are not the only ones that are top-notch, their nail technicians are experts too. The lady who took care of the dry skin within the cranny of my big toes expertly took it off without fuss. She may have taken her sweet time because the dry skin has stubbornly embedded itself — off without tears and blood! I usually get bloody when dry skin gets heavily embedded like that. Kudos to French Tips, for making sure all bases are covered! 🙂 **insert heart emoticon here**
