How to Winterize your nails:

It’s NovemBER now that means the cool dry season is in! We only have 2 types of season in the Philippines, the wet or rainy season which normally starts from May-October and the dry season that could be subdivided into cool dry and hot dry season. The cool dry season starts from November to February and this is the coldest period in our country. We don’t really have a “real winter with snow” here in the Philippines, as this is a tropical country. But the temperature during the cool dry season fits for our Christmas holiday. (This is our kind of winter) 🙂

Some have said that during cold weather our nails tend to grow slower. And that cold temperature may also cause our nails to become brittle, prone to infections and may experience discolouration.

So, how do you prettify your nails for the cold season? (If you would like to share your personal tips on how you winterize your nails on the comment box below, that would be great!)

I’ll be sharing to you my simple routines in prepping my nails for the cold weather.

  1. Remove those chipped off nail polish. It is better to wear nothing than flaunting a worn out nail polish.


  1. Cut and Clean. Yes, I love wearing long nails but just like our hair they need a little trimming too! I keep it not too long to avoid cracking  and not too short for a sexy look. Then remove the dead cuticle using a cuticle pusher and brush.
  2. Give your nails a break! I allow a week interval before putting colors on my nails again. Like my hair, I feel like my nails need some time to breath and rest from chemicals.
  3. Apply nail polish.

Hello Kitty inspired beauty hub

You maybe wondering where this place is. If you are a Hello Kitty fan, I bet you’re so curious and eager to know.





You see, I am an avid Hello Kitty lover. Finding this place made me so happy, and excited. (I know Hello Kitty lovers would feel the same way too!)

And having a Kitty hub close to my place must be a heaven-sent.

I went in with my Mom and Sisters to have our nails done. (Actually, I persuaded them ha-ha)

Fortunate I was, they gave me a quick tour inside. Upon entry is the hair salon with Hello Kitty shaped mirrors and ceiling light will welcome you. Next room is the nail salon furnished with crystal pink chandelier and hello kitty couches. They also have Hello Kitty shaped polish bottles on display. At the second floor, you’ll see their body massage room and skin care room. They used a fabric with Hello Kitty print to cover their body massage beds and facial beds. This Kitty inspired beauty hub is filled with Hello Kitty furnitures, pink, and white curtains, and Hello Kitty displays. (I feel like wanting to live here) If these does not excite you yet watch out for their sauna room, and mini café which said to be opening soon. (Oh, this place will surely be my happy place)

Aside from seeing the whole place, they also gave me a complimentary pin! (Thankful for the privilege)

Kitty Pikx R Nails Salon and Spa is located at Blk 2 L 55 D Windsor Mansion, Buhay na Tubig, Imus Cavite. They provide services that are very affordable and you could avail their Kitty Pikx R VIP card to get a 10% discount on all their services exclusive for their VIP members. (Huge savings!)

I also love that the have accommodating and friendly staff.

With all the pink and Hello Kitty interiors they succeeded in pulling off the Hello Kitty vibe. (Maybe they could play HK music or theme songs once in a while just to add on the cuteness of their Hello Kitty inspired shop)

HK lovers like me and ladies who are into cuteness vibe would definitely enjoy the place. And I will surely pay a visit again.

Hope to see you guys there. 🙂
