My first impression of a potential place to go to for manicure is based not only on the cleanliness/aesthetics of the shop, but also how I am approached, and treated when considering putting money and time for the next few hours there. Not only that the entrance and interior of the shop looks professional (clean and bright with a high ceiling), i was approached by the staffs in a warm and friendly manner when i visited the shop to enquire about the cost and treatments before deciding to try them out. Unlike the many one-stop shop that caters to all beauty services. They focus only on what they do best, nail treatments and waxing.

Nails & Wax has been around since 2008, used to be located at Kiulup but have since moved to Airport Mall in 2012. According to Ms Ye the lady boss, manicurists hired at Nails & Wax aren’t self-taught on the job but have professional certifications on nail arts and treatments.

OPI is the main product range that they carry for nail services. However, a small percentage of gel colors from other brands are also available for a variety of options. Nail gel is one great invention to me, as it solved my problems of brittle nails and it can last up to 2wks to a month without chipping off. They also offer a more extensive pampering session under Pro Elegance featuring Gel Nail Set ($60), Nail Tip Extension ($80) and Sculptured Nail Extensions ($100). There are also options for those who can’t afford the time for long hours of beauty services and wish to go for an express service, they can simply opt for a Buff & Shine for only $10, nail shaping for $10 or a Paint & Go option for only $12.

Other waxing services range from $15 – $150. Nails & Wax uses top of the line premium products such as Perron Rigot, a well known French hair-removal wax and beauty care line. Tried and tested an underarm waxing. It was very professional done with thoroughly clean results.
