The Secret Lounge PH: Dip Powder Nails

The Secret Lounge PH is Makati’s soon-to-be worst kept secret. Kind of like a speakeasy, the new beauty salon is quite literally hidden in a green building along V. A. Rufino Street. You have to pass through the driveway that cuts under Cypress Gardens to the parallel street in order to access the building’s entrance. You’ll know it’s Cypress Gardens because:
1. It’s the only green building on that street.
2. There’s a Ministop on the ground floor facing the street.
3. It’s at the junction of V. A. Rufino and Esteban Street.

Apart from coffee, tea and juices, The Secret Lounge also offers Wine and Cheese for patrons to sip and munch on. This is exactly my kind of beauty salon!

The Secret Lounge is the first salon in Manila to offer Dip Powder Manicure! It’s completely safe for pregnant women and people with sensitive skin, and dries up quickly without the help of a UV light. Powder Dip Nails are made of several layers so they’re a lot sturdier and stay on longer (like at least a month). Because of this, the Powder Dip Mani is great for housewives who have to get their hands dirty, as well as people like me who struggle to open lids and end up chipping a nail. SUPER TIBAY!

The Secret Lounge PH does not compromise quality. They’ve only got premium products like CND and CuticleAway, a gel-based cuticle remover to prevent skin dryness.

TSL doesn’t offer Dip Powder Pedicure just yet. Instead I got a Foot Spa, which comes with a foot scrub, foot mask and a foot massage.

While my feet were making babad, I tried The Secret Lounge’s signature Eyelash Extension with varying thickness: Girl Next Door (80/80), Boss Lady (100/100) and Uptown Girl (120/120). The Secret Lounge PH procures customized lashes in silk and mink with varying lengths and curls. I got the Girl Next Door with Length 12 and Curl C. If your eyelashes are straight like mine, they just curl up in an instant! Surprisingly, the entire process only took 30 minutes! It normally takes an hour in other eyelash salons!

The Secret Lounge Eyelash Extension – “Girl Next Door”

I love how their lashes are so light and don’t poke my eyelids at all. I usually scratch my eyelids in my sleep and end up plucking out a lash extension WITH the real lash still attached to it. Ever since this happened, I grew fearful of lash extensions.

Lash extensions normally last under 7 days with me. So far I’ve only lost 2 lashes in the past 2 days, so let’s see how long my TSL lashes can last!
