Freyja is a goddess associated with love, beauty, fertility and gold.
Last Friday, I went to Freyja Day and Nail spa.
They just opened a few weeks ago and we all know what that means, OPENING SALE!
In addition to the opening sale, they have the "Afternoon Delight" promo, as well.
Here is what the interiors look like!
If I remember correctly, I think it was designed by Danny Lara.
I am definitely loving the cool mint green/blue and chocolate brown theme.
This is the waiting area that can be turned into a treatment area on a busy day! I love how they maximize the small space!
In the photo above, I especially love the chair on the right. Gotta have one for my future house!
Oh and do you see that little flower shaped sink on the floor? That's where you soak your feet for some services. It's permanently there on the floor but if you only choose to have a hand treatment, they place the little brown stool on the far left over it and bam! A foot stool is made!
The photo above is the wash area. I love the tiles effect!
I really didn't have any treatment or service in mind so, I just asked what they would recommend.
These are the services they offer and it's too cute! They also have a manicure service for kids! :-)
Anyways, the owner said that they would recommend me to have the Vana-Goddess Whitening Hand Spa.
She told me about the paraffin treatment but the word "paraffin" tickled my low pain tolerance so, I passed.
I also told her that I had my eye on some of the nail art swatches so, she let me try them.
Here's the P.O.O. (pamangkin (niece) of owner), Des and our other friend Rachelle.
They both got the Vana-Goddess Whitening Foot Spa.
A well-deserved spa day after a week of plates.
Here are their attendants giving them their well-deserved pampering.
Rachelle enjoying her foot spa while sipping some complementary iced tea. You have a choice of being served coffee, hot tea or cold tea.
Here are the very few photos I have of the treatment. My photographer (aka. The Boyfriend) wasn't there so, I had to ask Des to take my photo but she was also having a treatment so things were complicated.
If I remember correctly though, the first thing she did was to soak my hands in warm water. Afterwards, she exfoliated my hands and again with the warm compress. Afterwards, she placed a thing that she said was the mask on my hands and arms, wrapped it in cling wrap and then wrap in the towel.
Afterwards, she placed a serum and placed giant warm gloves on my hands.
Afterwards, nail art time!
When I go to nail places, I usually just get some nail art done, I don't really go for the treatments so, I can't really compare this to any other place but I did enjoy the treatment and it did relax my hands after a week of stress with drawings and everything.
Also, I did not experience any DRAMATIC changes but I did feel that my hands were significantly softer after the treatment.
When we got there, I was told that they just got a shipment of nail polishes! So, we were experiencing them right off the box!
Drawers upon drawers of expensive nail polishes! Ranging from Orly to Misa to some OPI's.
At this point, I was pretty much up for anything so I let the nail artisan take her pick and just surprise me.
They used this thing called the Eco Gel Top Coat on my nails to make them last! The owner said that it can last upto 3 weeks!
As of right now, I haven't done anything that will test the top coat yet so, they're still pretty fine. I get tired of nail colors very easily so, I think I'll change it off before the three week mark.
Anyways, as for the Eco Gel Top Coat, they used this super cool UV drier that literally took SECONDS to try my nails!
I want one at home!
Although, the UV thing might not be too good for everyday.
THE FINAL PRODUCT!
It's a little bit out of character but I love it! Sunflowers are my favorite flowers after all.
The artisan did this FREEHAND which still wows me up till this moment.
Ann, Jen, Kai and Bec were also supposed to come but for whatever reasons, only Aya showed up.
After both our treatments, they invited us to view the massage rooms and of course, take some photos.
Here are the attendants fixing up for their next client.
Here's what it would look like once you walk in. I love the mood lighting.
Here is Aya trying to get the best shot possible by sticking herself into one tiny corner! Such a funny image! LOL
Here is Aya and I.
It's obvious that a person with Chinese in her blood owns this because of the plants! Growing up, we used to have those in our bathroom! It's supposed to bring money.
Oh and that well between Aya and I, it's a sink. Yes, I said sink.
I love how it isn't just a white ceramic/porcelain sink! I love how they worked it into the design.
I love their attention to detail when they bought these style of buckets! Hi Des!
All in all, I super super super super recommend the nail art. The artisans are definitely talented. The treatment was awesome for me but I haven't had treatments done in other places so, I wouldn't really know.
But nail art? A definite YES!
So, definitely visit while they still have the 20% off on all services!
Hope you like!
QUESTION OF THE DAY:
Which nail art design would you have gotten?
