I’ve always loved nail art. But every time I visit a nail salon, I can never decide on what “art” to put on my nails. So most of the time I end up with my tried-and-tested baby pink or red nail polish. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with that, but it would be nice to try something new for a change. Well, you should be happy to know that my nail art prayers have been answered as I was finally able to give it a try when I got invited to I DO NAILS. It’s a nail salon that specializes on nail art, which means they have an actual menu of services to choose from so its easy to pick what nail art goes on your nails (this is perfect for customers like me who can never decide on a design). And what I love about it is that they offer super unique designs that keep up with global nail trends–from charms to color-foiled nails. Its owner and president, Monica Maceda makes it a point to explore different beauty expos around the world and meet with international suppliers, so that I Do Nails is always up-to-date.
I have to say, I really got excited with their menu. I Do Nails offers a a wide range of nail designs that keep up with the trends, and are done really well your nails are sure to look Instagram-mable after! Check out their nail art menu:
