If you’re looking for a place to get pampering treatments, Express Beauty Bar may be a place to look into. Aside from hand and foot care, you can get facial treatments and hair removal services.

The reason we like this is because of the variety of treatments, which means you can get more services in one appointment. This is also a great option for busy bees.

Moreover, they offer a bunch of facial treatments like facials and eyebrow shaping. On top of that, they do eyebrow, eyeliner, and lip embroidery.

Another service for people with limited time is the express manicure and pedicure. These are also cheaper options as they cost RM38 and RM48, respectively.

But for the classic manicure and pedicure, the rates are RM50 and RM75. And in our opinion, these prices are quite reasonable.

Additionally, we admire the way the nail technicians handled the service. Clients praised the delicate service.

Furthermore, others even said they felt relaxed and completely at ease during the treatment. And if you’re stressed from work, we think you’ll greatly appreciate this.

It’s also great how welcoming and friendly the staff was, some customers even mentioned that they were offered tea and a light snack. This is essential in a pampering service as it can impress and even earn loyal customers.

Another we think you’ll like is the various nail polish colors to choose from. So, if you need one for business or girls’ night, you can find the right shade.

On the downside, we believe they can improve in handling customer complaints. There were instances of unhappy customers, and the staff could’ve dealt with the situation better – not that they were rude, of course!

We’d also like to see a portfolio for nail services. Others see these as an art form, and showing them online can help potential clients check the quality of their work.

Pros

  • Wide variety of services
  • Offers pampering treatments
  • Reasonable prices
  • Welcoming staff

Cons

  • Needs improvement in handling complaints
  • Lack of portfolio

One of the main things we like about Maniqure Nail Salon is the clean and bright interiors. Considering hygiene is one of the main things customers look for, we think this is a big plus.

Another thing we like about the ambiance is the beautiful design. With this, we think you’ll get a relaxing but fun nail appointment.

They even have a mobile application for easier bookings and access to promotions. You can choose from the nail art gallery for your preferred design, and the prices are readily available too.

As for the nail designs, it’s impressive that there’s a huge selection. There are classic, cute, and luxurious varieties, which we found absolutely adorable!

You see, the team is composed of nail art designers with years of experience—some have even trained students, which shows their talent in the industry.

Some clients agreed with the expertise too. They were delighted about the finished nail art.

It’s important to mention that they have a thorough hiring process. We like how they ensure that each manicurist has the right qualifications and is passionate about nail art.

Their passion for the nail industry is impressive too. They offer online and offline courses where students can learn about the right painting techniques.

On top of that, they offer nail salon parties for bridal showers. Part of the service includes welcome gifts, snacks and drinks, and props for cute and unforgettable memories.

However, one of our main concerns is some clients experienced minor discomfort with the cuticle removal. Also, male customers have an additional charge of RM10, and they need to come with a female customer too.

On the other hand, these complaints don’t usually happen as they have trained nail technicians, especially with creative nail art.

Pros

  • Bright and clean environment
  • Expertise in nail art
  • Provides nail courses
  • Offers bridal parties
  • Thorough hiring process

Cons

  • Instances of minor discomfort with cuticle removal
  • Male customers have additional charge

Customer Reviews

The manicurist assigned to me was Janice, she was nice and friendly, gave suggestions and did a wonderful job with my nails!

“I love the nails design and they always have latest design. Good service and always maintain cleanliness of the place. They will ensure the safety of their customer before start the manicure process. Affordable price and comfortable place for Mani and Pedi.” – B L, Google Reviews

The Nail Parlour is a good choice if you’re looking for a nail salon in Malaysia that’s been recognized by several publications. It’s a 10-year winner of the Harper’s Bazaar Spa Awards since 2011!

In addition to that, it has several memberships from international associations due to its sanitation practices. When we heard this, no doubt we were impressed!

Cleanliness is one of the most important factors when going to a nail salon because you clearly don’t want to get an infection. So, this earns top points from us!

Apart from the regular nail services, we were happy to learn they offer kids mani and pedi. They offer these for kids under ten years old, and it’s a great way to have mommy and me time.

Another reason to like them is the many nail polish colors and brands. Additionally, there are many nail treatments too.

Moreover, you can purchase the products online if you find one you really like. There are available famous brands like Orly and Zahara.

You can get free shipping if you order over RM100. And since there is a ton of stuff to choose from, like gift sets for adults and kids, we think you’ll be able to get free shipping.

However, we find their nail services a bit limited. Another downside is they’re quite unable to accommodate many clients because of limited staff.

On a brighter note, The Nail Parlour has several branches across the country. So wherever you are, you can find one close to your location.

Pros

  • Recognized by magazines
  • Great sanitation practices
  • Nail products are available for purchase
  • Multiple branches

Cons

  • Limited nail services
  • Minor complaints about accommodation

Since 2012, Nail Day Beauty has provided affordable nail care services in Malaysia. So, this may be a place to look into if you’re looking for good nails without having to fork out big money.

In fact, the classic manicure starts at RM29.90 for 30 minutes, while the classic pedicure is at RM39.90 for 40 minutes. We like their affordability, allowing you to pamper yourself without breaking the bank.

The thing we like about these is that apart from the typical services, the nail polish they’ll use on your nails is from OPI – one of the most popular nail polish brands.

But if you’re in a rush, you can opt for the express services starting at a low cost of RM18. Even with this, you’ll get an OPI nail polish.

You see, not all nail salons offer popular brands, which is why we were quite impressed that Nail Day Beauty offers this despite the affordable prices.

On top of all that, they have waxing services too. However, compared to the others on our list, they offer fewer services.

As for the quality, many customers praised the nice designs, especially the nail art. The nail technicians were also patient and provided excellent work.

The facility had a good environment too. It was cosy and clean, allowing customers to destress.

However, we feel they need to improve their booking system. Because of this, some customers complained of long wait times despite confirmed appointments.

Pros

  • Reasonable rates
  • Uses OPI brand
  • Cosy environment
  • Nail technicians were patient with work

Cons

  • Minor complaints of long wait times
  • Limited services

Jac & Ivy Nail Spa was founded by Jacqueline Ong, the 2nd runner-up in Miss Malaysia World 2007, and Ivy Chong, an International Nail Olympic Competition award winner. 

But the main thing that got our attention was the zen ambiance of the nail salon. It provides a calming environment, almost like a home away from home.

They provide services for men, women, and kids! They offer nail treatments, too, for the best relaxation.

They even have a cute and cosy kids’ spa area that’s great for parties. Besides that, you can include facial treatments and makeup sessions for your kids.

On top of that, they only use non-toxic products to ensure they won’t get harmed by chemicals. The nail technicians for kids are well-trained to handle little fingers so they won’t get hurt.

Furthermore, they offer customized hand draw nail art. In addition, they have 3D acrylic nails for those looking for extra bling. 

We were impressed because these services need skilled and trained nail technicians for flawless nail art. Also, not many nail salons offer these services, which is another remarkable thing.

It’s worth mentioning that you can hire Jack & Ivy for events like birthdays or bridal parties. 

Sadly, there were cases of the nail polish chipping off only after a few days. In our opinion, this shouldn’t happen immediately, especially with the slightly higher prices of when getting a gel manicure.

Pros

  • Provides a zen ambiance
  • Offers services for women, men, and kids
  • Available for events
  • Uses non-toxic products for kids
  • Offers various nail arts

Cons

  • Instances of the nail polish chipping after a few days
  • Slightly higher rates

Very kind and friendly of her to do so and i very much appreciate the gesture. The service was efficient and excellent. She was so gentle that i almost fell asleep.

Guy-approved!

“I had such a wonderful time here getting my mani/pedi done. I am a guy, and it is very difficult to get excellent service at nail spas, but the therapists, Apple and Lo Han gave me the best service I have ever experienced at a nail spa. Both were good at what they do, they were very thorough. I will definitely come by again. You have found yourselves a regular customer.” – Sharyl, Google Reviews
