I will be the first to admit that I'm not much of a girly girl. I'd choose laser tag over a mani-pedi any day and would prefer to take out cars in Burnout than watch a chick flick.
However, I do love pretty things and I do love catching up with my girls. So, when the opportunity came up to review Pink Me Up Beauty Nail and Dry Bar, I dragged Jacky with me to the great and girly unknown and we enjoyed a couple of hours of girly-time together. That's right. Hours.
And yes, I know I said "girly" a lot up there. Sorry. :p
Pink Me Up Beauty Nail and Dry Bar is located in Lee Gardens Condominium along Shaw Boulevard. The building is pretty easy to find and it's awesome coz they have a Starbucks downstairs (Starbucks makes everything awesome). However, I will admit that the maze-like interiors of the building creeped the hell out of me.
The creepiness faded pretty quickly once we got to Pink Me Up itself, though. Why? Because their interiors look exactly the way my dream condo would look.
Unfortunately, I live with a manly bear of a man and a hyper ball of nonsense, so my dream condo will have to wait for now. Just look at how beautiful it is, though:
That's a TV, but we decided to catch up instead of watch anything girly. :p
How. Beautiful. Is. This.
I can already imagine all of my books lined up on those shelves.
The closet princess in me was squealing in delight, I swear.
My type of reading! :p
Too pretty for words.

In true un-girly girl fashion, my choice of reading material was GQ. :p
My favorite part: choosing my nail colors!
I was going to go for a galaxy-like navy blue, but then I saw this:
Black nail polish that looked like it had stars in it - perfect for the angry rocker chick idealist in me! Sooo pretty! :D
Now, my biggest pet peeve when it comes to mani-pedis is that the nail polish chips so quickly and I end up wishing I had just done my own nails at home.
Well, I definitely vouch for Pink Me Up's services. Why? My polish lasted for 10 days before they started chipping. And even then, they didn't chip badly until 5 more days after that. (Yes, I counted.)
What else did I love about Pink Me Up? They had disposable pumice scrubs (perfect for my OC-ness!), free tea and services for kids. I know where I'm taking Syrena next time! :D
Aside from nail services, they also have massage and hair services, which we sadly weren't able to try that day because we were excited to catch Magic Mike. :p We loved the experience, though! (Read Jacky's review here.) Thank you so much, Pink Me Up, for the wonderful treat. I can't wait to go back!
And check this out:
They sell Alcatel One Touch phones there at a cheaper price, too! You get a free mani-pedi when you buy one! :)
Pink Me Up's services range from Php200 to Php650. Go get your girly fix now (and invite me, please)! Hehe. Also, don't forget to like Pink Me Up on Facebook! :)
