About Nails: Nail Haven by Fiona.

A way overdue post but working has taken out a lot of time and energy from me and time to just sit down and even reply emails/write posts have been really scarce somehow. #adulthoodgotreal

In any case, here's a shoutout post for Nail Haven - run by Fiona (@nailhavensg on Instagram). I did nails with her for about half a year while she was still running her home salon. However, she's recently shifted to a store space over at Chinatown so yay to girls who pass around that area!

Back then, this was how her home space for nails looked like:

These shots were taken when I did the set of nails I loved - a hand painted set of oriental floral prints by her. 

I would usually get gellish nails done with her! Basically, gellish nails would last about 3-4 weeks so they are great for special occasions or for girls who are always more careless with their nails (like me hahaha). I would get nail extensions if my nails are too short too (:

And here's Fiona at work!

Fiona's a really detailed manicurist, and she's always open to designs that her customers may have for her, so what I usually do was to explain to her what I want or show her a design/pattern that I want and she'll work out a colour palette for it.

And... so here's the final results for the oriental florals set:

Totally in love with how she positioned and drew the strokes out for the flower petals (: I'm always gonna amazed at how she paints and does the nail art!

Ending off my post with one last photo of another set done by her: a Christmas inspired theme.

It's unbelievable how intricate the strokes are - the snowman's definitely my favourite design there! 

If you're looking for a day of pampering and relaxation, do drop by at Nail Haven and get a manicure/pedicure done! Every girl deserves a day off once in a while (:

P.S.I think it'll also be best to make an appointment before heading down just in case it's crowded!

With the year end holidays coming up, I hope to be able to post more frequently and get back to blogging! (: On a side note, I'm excited to be flying off in November hehe - can't wait for a good break.

Love, Jo
