Best nail salons for men's mani-pedis in Singapore: Splice Barbershop, Trimmings Salon & Space, Truefitt & Hill, etc
Mani happy returns
While we're hardly the type to ascribe to archaic ideals, several idioms still hold true within the beauty community. We know better than to judge a book by its cover (or a product by its packaging); it's best to kill two birds with one stone with multi-tasking products; and the devil truly is in the details in all matters of grooming. The latter, in particular, is a sentiment often disregarded by the uninitiated and members of the XY chromosome, as evidenced by the state of their nails. An area often overlooked, it comes as no surprise that the afflicted men often display killer haircuts, stellar facial hair, but nails that should be considered a health hazard. No more. Below, the best unisex nail salons to visit if you can't bring yourself to step into an all-pink, quilted interior.
Pedi:Mani:Cure Studio by Bastien Gonzalez
Hidden within the Remède Spa at The St. Regis is a nail nirvana. Opened by French podiatrist and celebrity pedicurist, Bastein Gonzalez, the studio specialises in all manner of nail, feet, and hand treatments that prove particularly popular amongst the masculine set thanks to the addressing of specific concerns such as calluses and corns.
Truefitt & Hill Singapore
Newsflash: London's finest traditional gentlemen's barber and perfumer do mani-pedis, too. Sit back, relax, and get pampered by a team of trained specialists utilising product offerings unmatched in quality and prestige — the results of which you can maintain with take-home sets comprising nail scissors, tweezers, clippers, and the like.
Trimmings Salon & Spa
Its two outlets — one at Dempsey Hill, and the other at Tudor Court — are fitted with clean, minimalist furnishings that feel accessible to all, as mentioned in the landslide of rave reviews on their Facebook page. Opt for the express service should you require only a quick tidy-up and polish, or the Sports Grooming option if your nails are in need of a thorough overhaul.
Splice Barbershop Singapore
Established in 2013, Splice first got their start selling cufflinks and watches before expanding to beauty services. Think haircuts, shaves, and mani-pedis in basic and spa variants. The former includes cutting, shaping, buffing, and a massage, while the latter comprises exfoliation as well as luxurious hydration treatments.
M'Pir The Nail Bar
Expect a warm, welcoming space decked out in quirky printed armchairs, greenery, and wall-to-wall shelves adorned with products sourced from premium nail brands. Basic mani-pedis aside, blokes in need of some serious pampering can also opt for paraffin and cold collagen treatments for baby-soft, smooth hands and feet.
