Mani Pedi

Again, there are literally 1000’s of options here, but these salons are particularly good.

  

ELEGANT NAILS

Tanglin Mall (#01-34)

163 Tanglin Road

Singapore 247933

T: (+65) 6235 8235

Affectionately called ‘The Cupboard’, this minute but perfectly equipped salon does a fantastic mani/pedi for $55 (or pedi only from $35, for those of us who hate a mani as we always seem to have at least one hand up a chicken’s bottom so can’t see the point of them!).  Great technique and great selection of OPI colours to choose from.  We love Red Red Rhine, Little Red Wagon and Over The Taupe.  Its central location makes it a yummy mummy hotspot and about the only bargain to be had inside the Tanglin Mall (not forgetting Shopping at Tiffany’s – see BUY ME).  BTW: Don’t say yes to any of their add-ons as they really add up and are unnecessary.

Opening Times: 10am-9pm daily

  

SHANGRI-LA

Holland Village SC (#03-25)

211 Holland Avenue

Singapore 278967

T: (+65) 6462 1009

Great prices ($49 for a weekday mani/pedi; $55 on a Saturday or Sunday) in a great location and, according to one international beauty journalist who used to live here, the best value manicure joint she found in Singapore, with the best technique.

Opening Times: 10am-7pm daily

  

SNAILS

Wheelock Place (#03-01)

501 Orchard Road

Singapore 238880

T: (+65) 6738 0100

An abbreviation of Singapore Nails, damn, these guys are good, and not remotely snail-like.  It’ll cost you, but if you’re counting the minutes and not the cents, then this one’s for you.  Therapists will work on your hands and feet simultaneously – without even being asking – and the finish is excellent, as well it should be at $75+ (excl. GST) for a mani/pedi.

Opening Times: 10am-8pm Mon-Sat; 10am-6pm Sun
