After getting your hair done for Chinese New Year, it’s time to get your nails in shape!

For the uninitiated, many nail salons actually impose CNY surcharges during this period of time due to overwhelming demand and manpower shortage. If you are not keen on shelling out extra to get a manicure done before the festive period, fret not – you can still get your nails done at the following salons with no extra charge incurred!

1. Leekaja Beauty Salon


Besides being able to create the latest Korean nail trends, Leekaja Beauty Salon is also well-loved for using products from eco-friendly Korena nail brand, Bandi Nail. This brand is famous for containing only natural ingredients while providing vivid colours that stay put after a drying time of just 30 seconds.

Leekaja also uses state-of-the-art technology soak-off machines to gently remove gel polishes so that your nails don’t get damaged in the process, and one of the best nail care solutions that can prevent your nails from yellowing and restore your nails’ health.
