10 Home Based Nail Salons In Singapore For Glam CNY Manicure

It’s no surprise that beauty service prices are jacked up during Chinese New Year (ahem, surcharges). But that doesn’t mean you can’t get a pretty manicure without feeling the pinch! Instead of booking an appointment at salons, why not give home based nail salons a try this CNY? Here’s a list of popular and affordable nail salons in Singapore that can help you achieve your nail goals this festive season! 

About home based nail salons in Singapore

Just as the name suggests, home based nail salons are usually based in the nail technicians’ residential homes and do not have a shop front. While some may not be as spacious as regular nail salons, they provide a more intimate experience as most of them only serve one customer per session. Plus, without the rental cost, many they often are able to offer more competitive prices! Since these services are carried out at a residential address, do note that you’ll only receive the full address of the home based nail salon after you’ve confirmed an appointment with them.

5. Nailmachineservices

Unlike regular canvas drawings, hand-drawn nail art designs are more complex and challenging due to the smaller sizes of fingernails. However, no nail art design is too difficult for Kimberlyn, the certified nail technician behind Nailmachineservices! Kimberlyn is capable in recreating whatever design you show her, be it mosaic tiles-inspired nail art or life-like floral designs. We’re sure your relatives will marvel at how detailed your nail design is this CNY!

While embellishments usually only require proper positioning and adhering, hand-drawn designs take a lot of skill, effort and time. This is why many nail salons may charge a higher rate for hand-drawn nail art. However, you won’t be getting any nasty surprises when the final bill is concluded at Nailmachineservices as you can always send your desired nail art to Kimberlyn for a quote. She’s also open to making changes to your desired nail art to ensure the total price stays within your budget. Nailmachineservices is an affordable nail salon in Singapore, with prices ranging from $28 for express gel manicure to $38 for classic gel manicure. Extensions will cost $11 per nail. CNY surcharges apply from $10 to $20 between 21 January and 10 February.

Not everyone is born with strong, long nails. Which is why many of us rely on nail extensions to create length and space for fanciful nail art designs! However, nail extensions can get quite expensive and often cost beyond $100 in most nail salons.

Leave your worries behind when you engage Celine from Celinenailedit! This affordable nail salon in Singapore provides nail extension services at wallet-friendly prices. The nail extensions have also been highly raved for their long retention time. A set of simple nail tip extensions with overlay and unlimited designs (be it charms or nail art) will only cost you $50.
