SNEAK PEAK: I’ve got a not-so-classic gelish French manicure!!!!

I was really impressed when I got to the shop cause there was no strong nail polish smell (which I hate by the way). PLUS… the shop decorations are really nice :) I think they are using the romantic European style? Way prettier than the nail shops in FEP.

Met with Muzi, one of the talented founder of APretti Nailz and got to know that she will be doing my nails personally. She started me off by passing me some magazines to choose my nail design. All I can say is… I was SPOILT FOR CHOICE.

Like oh my god, all these intricate designs on such a small piece of canvas (aka our nails).. how did they do it?! PURE TALENT. (pictures below)

I couldn’t decide so while I was flipping, she got me started with the filing and cleaning first. It took quite some time cause she was really detailed. (Plus I had so much gross cuticles that needed to be removed….)

Did you know it’s actually good/healthy for your nails to be trimmed, cleaned, scrubbed and buffed? And to think I used to believe being natural (not doing anything to them) was best.

I really LOVE how this LED light dries up my nails instantly, just like magic! It was a little warm though but nothing unbearable :)

I wanted something simple and elegant so Muzi suggested the French manicure for me. But the classic French is kinda boring right? I told her to maybe improvise it a little and here’s what she came up with :)


Two of my favourite things in this world. Looks simple but definitely takes skills to achieve such perfect lines.

Just look at the amount of certs on the wall… I was quite assured that my nails are being handled by someone who’s been professionally trained.

Can I just tell you how pretty these armchairs are in real life?

And TADA! Here’s a photo with the pretty Ms Muzi who worked on my nails :)
(Please ignore the gross blue-blacks on my knees though, got them from dance prac LOL)

 It’s been 2 to 3 weeks after I have done my gelish at APretti Nailz, and I can honestly say there are no chip or scratches thus far. It still looks absolutely perfect and I don’t even have to do anything special to maintain them. Picture below taken on my trip in Korea.

I strongly recommend checking out APretti Nailz if you want a clean, comfortable environment, affordable pricing and great service. In fact, it’s so convenient cause it’s right outside Chinatown MRT (just 1 min walk away).

Special thanks to Muzi for making my experience a great one, and for sharing some awesome nail beautifying tips with me!
