Chinese New Year is the perfect excuse to munch on sinful goodies, take a ton of selfies, and get a fresh set of nails that will make everyone jealous.

If you’re looking to get a manicure before the festivities, however, bear in mind that some salons charge an extra fee during the busy season. For those who want to avoid that CNY surcharge, you’re in luck, because we’ve gathered eight nail salons that are skipping the surcharge!

Trimmings Salon & Spa

Enjoy a range of services over at Trimmings. Besides manicures and pedicures, they provide other services like hairdressing and massages. For a salon that does it all, their quality services are also priced affordably, which is a huge win in our book!

The average price for gel manicures usually ranges from S$80 to S$90, but here, it only costs S$65 for a classic gel manicure service.

Plus, if you want to add some trendy French tip designs, you’ll only be paying S$75, well below the average rate for gel designs.

Even with two outlets, there’s always a crowd filling up at each location so be sure to book an appointment fast.
