[REVIEW] Ladyfinger the Nail Spa @ Jurong Point

Ladyfinger brings to you the unique customer experience by providing a sanctuary for sheer indulgence and pampering. Customers are well taken care of with the most detailed attention from their professional manicurist.


Last week, I got to try out the manicure & pedicure services of Ladyfinger The Nail Spa.
Ladyfinger is the ultimate nail spa bar, winning the Best in Beauty award by Singapore Women's Weekly in 2010! The branch I visited was the one located conveniently at Jurong Point, just a stone's throw away from home. 

The treatments I got to indulge in were ....
Gel French Manicure
Creative Spa Pedicure

Look at my nails! Love them?


Well, then read on...
Psst, I've got a bunch of promo codes for those of you who wish to try out their services for the treatments too!



Gel French Manicure


Check out my gel french nails, don't they look beautiful?


I think classic french nails are great for all kinds of occasions; from work to the parties at night.
They match easily with all kinds of outfits and styles.

So why gel nails instead of normal polish?
Firstly, gel nails are more durable and longer lasting.
They will not split, chip or tear.
For normal polish, it could start chipping off within a week especially if you spend most of the time typing away on your computer. However, for gel nails they can last up for 3 weeks to a month!! Amazing, isn't it?
It's basically a classic manicure but using gel nail polish instead of normal OPI polish.
This is a new Gel Nails technology from USA which does not harm the nails at all.
Soak off takes only 10 minutes unlike acrylic nails which can weaken and harm the nail bed.



So what to expect during a gel nails classic manicure?

First, my nails were filed to the shape and length I wanted. I usually prefer square nails because I find them neat and classic-looking. Next, my cuticles are softened and pushed back before they are trimmed.
Following that, my nails were lightly buffed and filed on the surface as gel polish will stay longer on a slightly rough surface. After that, a special gel base coat is used before the gel nail polish in the shade I have picked is used. A special gel top coat is also used after the colors are painted on.
Initially, I had selected a nude shade but was recommended this pink with subtle shimmer. And it did turn out really well with the white.

Check out the end result!

Creative Spa Pedicure


I begun my creative spa pedicure with a pampering foot soak in warm water.
There are 2 types of foot spas available - warm or cold
I tried the warm one which is said to help in blood circulation and relieve swelling or bloating in the feet.


After my foot soak, my old nail polish was removed and as my toe nails were pretty short already.
My manicurist filed them into the shape I requested for - square.
Next, the special spa cuticle cream was applied onto my cuticles before they were pushed and trimmed.


Prior to the best part of the pedicure, which is the scrubbing off dead skin from the bottom of the feet. A softener cream is applied to my heels and then wrapped with cling wrap for better absorption.


See the top left photo? Yes, the bits of yucky stuff on the red towel are the dirt & dead skin from the bottom of my feet! Feels so good to have gotten rid of them.
Then I was treated to a lovely scrub and after that, moisturiser was slathered on generously onto both legs and then once again, wrapped in cling wrap for better absorption. 

Lastly, the color of my choice; a dark purplish black shade is painted onto my toes.
