Scroll through your Instagram feed, or see photos of celebrities online – and you’ll notice that the gorgeous girls usually have one thing in common – perfectly groomed nails.
True story, I used to paint my nails at least once every week, and it’s kinda crazy how much time I used to spend on this.
For every working gal who has no time to spare, but enjoys keeping yourself perfectly groomed – going for manicures is a great way to relax, pamper yourself and indulge in self care.
Gel nails last at least a month, and it’s incredible how it’s so long lasting and hardy with hardly any chips.
If you’re in Bangkok, you simply can’t miss out on a quick gel manicure session. It’s affordable (note: super cheap), and there are tons of colours and designs to choose from.
Plus, these nail salons are all located in central shopping areas, so all you need to do is pop by when your feet needs a break from all the shopping!
PS: The basic price of gel manicures in Bangkok is usually from 250 to 300 Baht for basic one colour manicures. If you’re looking to get manicures with a design, the cost will increase according to the design you want – but it’s still cheaper than the manicure places back home!
1. Have a quick snooze and a mani-pedi at Siam Square area – Sleep Salon & Spa
There’s plenty to love about Sleep Salon & Spa. First, you’ll find it at the Siam Square shopping district in the cutest pink 3-story building named Choose Dress ❤.
You’ll find a boutique selling the cutest clothes and accessories on the first two levels. We enjoyed a little shopping here before getting down to our manicures!
Once you’ve made your way up to the third floor, you’ll find the salon with a cool sleep theme. Choose your nail colour/designs and when the manicurists are working on your nails, you’ll be able to enjoy a quick snooze!
If you’re thinking of getting your hair washed, dyed or permed, this is a good place to check out too. One of the highlights here is the hair wash and head massage in the sleep room. Think of it as an upgraded version of a standard Thai head and shoulders massage.
Imagine getting your hair washed (which is already very relaxing), head massaged at the same time, and being able to sleep for 30 luxurious minutes!
PS: I got both a manicure and pedicure done for the grand total of 1500 Baht – this included soak-offs of my previous mani-pedi, a custom colour, as well as abalone nail shards for the design. WORTH IT.
