Between nappy changes, constant feedings, monthly checkups and other mom duties, a pampering session is just what I needed. But what’s a girl to do if she’s too wary of the chemicals in nail salons? Thank goodness there’s a new eco-chic nail parlour in town.

Unwinding in the city’s best kept secret — French Tips Nail Parlour — is just what the doctor ordered. Enter into a luxurious haven adorned with white deer sculptures mounted on the faux grass walls and lined with plush seats decorated with floral pillows, such a luxurious escape will surely whisk you away from the daily grind.

A nail salon unlike any other, French Tips combines eco-chic pampering with a one-of-a-kind French themed ideal. To sneak in a luxurious eco-friendly treat at French Tips is to be catered to for a few hours.

Ah, the sweet smell of lavender, that was the scent that greeted me and Baby Qlyliz as I took the first step in my luxurious, eco-chic journey. Gone is the guilt of chemicals as I was given the choice of selecting my favorite shade among a vast collection of toxic-free nail polishes. Even the soaks are Formaldehyde free and Paraben free!

Can you believe that this gorgeous shade of nail polish is toxic-free? Bordering on nude and rose gold, this Honeybee Gardens nail polish is simply elegant and easy on the eyes. Mocha Latte is the name of this shade, it was love at first sight, I simply had to have it.

It was not an easy choice though, there were numerous polishes that caught my eye from their arsenal of nail polish donning on international brands like Honeybee Gardens, Beautylish, Piggy Paint, Suncoat Products, Acquarella, Pritinyc, Sparitual, Zoya, Misa, OPI, Orly, Nubar, Faby and Color Club. If Qlyliz had been older, I would let her try on the Piggy Paint polishes since it’s perfect for pregnant women and kids aged 5 - 10 years old.

At French Tips, the ideals of the South of France that inspired its aesthetic and brand of service are evident. Attentive and accommodating, their team are expertly trained to provide the best possible eco-friendly service. Nothing feels rushed and anyone is welcome to pamper themselves for as long as they want in the capable hands of their technicians.

The eco-chic experience is certainly enough to make you wish you could stay forever.

Even the food they served during the opening was healthy!

French Tips Nail Parlour opened last November 2016 and Prelel Dares to Dream was invited to its grand launch on January 26, 2017.

I love the lollipop pumice stone they gave us, it looks so cute when Qlyliz holds it. I also won their “most posh outfit contest” and I was thinking of adding the prize to me Commenter of the Month giveaway.
