{Giveaway} Manicure & Pedicure at Origins Nail Spa

by - Monday, June 10, 2013

In my previous post, I mentioned about not being able to wash my feet or cut my toenails now that I'm heavily pregnant at week 34. When Origins Nail Spa invites me to try out their service, I immediately agreed. Thinking back, it has been more than a year since I last went for a Mani & Pedi session. Ever since I was pregnant with Little J, I have stopped doing Mani & Pedi because I was afraid of the effects of the chemical. I only do up my nails on special occasions such as weddings or Chinese New Year.

Still wary of the ill-effects of the chemicals, I informed them that I am pregnant. They recommend me to use the Zoya range of nail polish which is said to be free from the 5 main harmful chemicals contained in normal polishes. They are also among the very few nail spa which has option of less chemical polish and also organic gelish for client. They even have kids range which is non-toxic and odorless, perfect for parents who wants to doll up their little princesses.

After I had settled down in the cozy armchair, we started with the pedicure first. 

It started with a soak for the feet, followed by trimming and filing of the nails. Cuticle oil was applied and feet was soaked again. After a few minutes of soaking, the manicurist proceed to remove the dead skin and cuticle. Then, came the most enjoyable part, the scrub and mask! I have chosen chocolate, which has the properties of Anti Oxidant, Repair, Rejuvenate and Firming. After the mask, it is time to 'paint' the nails. I have choose a reddish tone. 

The same procedure was applied for the hands.

Before & After
The whole session was soothing and relaxing, which I really love. I had been to other salons where the manicurist will keep on talking non stop or hard selling. But it's not the case here. She will let u relax in peace and will seek your opinion when necessary. If they had put on some essential oil and play soothing music, I think I would have fallen asleep. 

The only concern for me was that the session was too long, almost 4 hours. There was only one manicurist doing everything for me, so that explains why it was so long.
