This is me after my first Beauty in Lagos #TGIFree manicure session last month at the Oriki Spa.
Staying beautiful in Lagos can be a struggle with the grime and hustle of the city. Thus, the team at Beauty in Lagos have come to the rescue with a monthly #TGIFree manicure session.
Last month’s session had a pink manicure theme with different shades of pink nail lacquer from Amali Cosmetics. Once I walked in to the gorgeously decorated Oriki Spa in Victoria Island, it was clear we were in for a treat. There was that initial uncertainty about if the manicures are actually free. Guess what? They are 🙂 The nail technicians treat you like you are paying a million bucks and you get to savor the experience.
I took advantage of the 50% discount offered for a pedicure session. That clean like a soft white pillow feeling under my feet lingered on for weeks. While I held my pink nails in full view for days. My total bill that evening came to 2,000 Naira, which is a steal. You cannot get a luxurious mani and pedi at a decent salon for that price. This is what I love about the Beauty in Lagos manicure sessions, for one evening a girl gets to be pampered on a budget.
Plus, there was food. Yay!!! Cocktails were served in cute Cointreau jars with red velvet cupcakes. When the ladies from Zaron cosmetics showed up with freebies, I was awestruck at how much care and thought the Beauty in Lagos team put into planning a TGIFree Manicure Session. Oh! Did I forget the music. The DJ had his set in the garden and kept the tables turning until almost 11 pm.
So, here is the trick to the Beauty in Lagos Free Manicure Session. You have to get there EARLY!!! I can’t overemphasize that enough. Trust me, hundreds of ladies in Lagos also want to be pampered. Even though I spent my entire Friday night at the spa, it was totally worth it and I had no regrets. I walked in like a Lagos Squirrel and walked out like a Lagos Swan 🙂
