Almost Paradise

Almost Paradise recently had a promotion on SocialDeal for it’s Manicure, Pedicure and Scrub services. With just B$19.90, you get a classic manicure and pedicure with scrub for both hands and feet. Almost Paradise is located at Manggis Mall, I’ve noticed it when i was there a couple of times for grocery shopping. But their services doesn’t come cheap when i checked on the price then. However, with this deal, it’s was worth trying.

The shop is located at B1, outside Hua Ho right next to Faceshop. The interior of the shop looks very welcoming, in sweet pretty pink with lots of Hello Kitty products on display. Didn’t take note if the products are on sale, as i’m not much of a Hello Kitty fan. But it did give a very pretty feminine feel to the shop. I like it that the service area is partitioned, hidden by passer-by. However, they can only accommodate up to two customers at one go, as there were only two seats. The single sofa was really comfortable and the manicurists were friendly and polite. Flower tea and biscuits was served too.

There were no water points for pedicure for the individual seats, thus all scrubs are washed off with warm wet towels instead of being able to soak and wash your feet in the foot-tub. Which is quite an experience as i can see that they were very careful with the scrub and the washing away of the scrub, avoiding any spills in order not to wet the sofa and floor.

The little white oven-looking box at the corner is the sanitizer/sterilizer cabinet equipment. Not commonly seen in every nail salon. Saw my manicurist placed the tools into the sanitized cabinet after use. Which makes me feel more assured knowing that the tools are properly sanitized here.
