Just like any other trend, nail trends are also ever-changing. From nostalgic Y2K claws to dainty 3D Korean nails and minimalistic jelly and blush nails, the sheer number of designs to keep up with can be overwhelming — especially for your wallet.
We’re no strangers to the fact that nail designs can get pretty pricey — in fact, a classic gel manicure isn’t exactly the most affordable either (with prices beginning from at least S$25 at many nail salons), much less when it comes to adding in charms, nail art, extensions and more.
If you’re someone that loves changing up your nails all the time, you might have just found your holy grail at Kirameki Nail Studio (@kirameki.nailstudio on Instagram), a home-based nail studio located near Khatib MRT.
Here, you’ll be able to get S$20 express gel manicures with unlimited colours and designs (no more paying almost S$60 for a couple of smiley faces on your nails!) — adorable froggos, abstract nail art, dainty bows, blinged out hearts, you name it.
And if you’d like to pay a little bit more care to your nails, you can also opt for the S$25 classic gel manicure, which also comes with unlimited colours and designs. I’m not gonna lie, as someone that does my nails regularly, this is really quite a steal — and the nail technician is also properly certified to have met the professional standards of a salon.
For those who want longer nails, nail extensions also come affordably at S$3 per finger and S$20 for a whole set.
This is really great for those who want to make space for more intricate designs, or simply want to make your hands appear more long and slender. For some context, the average price for nail extensions at nail salons elsewhere typically begin at S$5 per finger.
And here’s the most important factor — though the prices are humble, the quality of the service is still really great and highly-raved by many. The nail studio sees regular five-star reviews, and the nail art looks nothing short of Pinterest-worthy.
In fact, Kirameki Nail Studio is so sought after that their slots for appointments in July and August are already fully booked — but don’t panic yet.
The nail studio posts regularly on Instagram, and you’ll know when somebody cancels their slot and a slot becomes available last minute. If you’d like to plan ahead, do note that the September slots will be released in early August so make sure you stay tuned to their Instagram page.
If you’re looking for an affordable go-to nail salon for some killer nails all year round, definitely check Kirameki Nail Studio out!
