REVIEW: Nail Cottage | Gel Manicure

I love gel manicures because they don’t wear off as fast as regular manicures. I usually get them at Nailaholics in SM San Mateo, but at Php850, the price is pretty steep so I don’t get it done too often. That’s why when I found out that Nail Cottage in Marikina City offers a gel manicure for only Php300, I was stoked.

When I got there, I was impressed at how beautiful the interior is. It’s very Cath Kidston with the floral designs.

Nail Cottage offers a good range of gel nail polish colors to choose from. I spotted a beautiful glittery one, and of course I had to get it.


Joane, my attendant, was friendly enough but not overly chatty, which I like. She worked fast, faster than I was used to, but the output was clean and not sloppy at all. I really like how little time it took. 🙂 The first chip in my nails was a small one after over one week, which is not bad.

Just one thing I could think of to improve:

Nail Cottage could do with implementing a uniform to be worn by attendants to look more professional.

Other than that, I’m really freaking happy. I mean, seriously, look at their prices:
