Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa Celebrates the 2nd Year of National Pampering Day

When it comes to pampering on a national scale, Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa holds the only spot. After introducing the celebration of the National Pampering Day last year, Nailaholics is back at it again this 2017 with an amplified nationwide celebration of relaxation that everyone is looking forward to this October 17.

The National Pampering Day got off to a good start last year where Nailaholics offered free manicure service and a stress relieving hand massage from 10 AM to 12 NN on all their branches nationwide. This year, everyone will be treated to a free service of their choice: a soothing manicure, calming foot spa or a relaxing foot massage.

“We Filipinos are very hardworking in any given aspect of our lives and a nation of energetic and industrious people best deserves real pampering once in a while. This year, as Nailaholics celebrates the 2nd National Pampering Day, we go deeper and dedicate this to everyone and remind them to take it slow, take it easy, zone out and relax for a while.” said Arvin Amaro, Marketing Head of Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa.

“With last year’s success of the National Pampering Day, we are back this year with a bigger and much more enjoyable day of pampering. In partnership with the number one salon brand and most beloved nail lacquer brand in the world, O.P.I., National Pampering Day 2017 will accommodate more guests with the extension of pampering time until 1PM.  Also, the best thing about this year’s National Pampering Day is that it will be in support to World Vision, The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), and Save Philippine Seas” added Amaro.

So save the date and get ready to park away any thoughts of work because the only responsibility you have is to loosen up. Wind down and head down to any Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa branch on October 17, 2017 (Tuesday) from 10 AM to 1 PM and get yourself a free relaxing manicure, foot spa or foot massage.

Let Nailaholics’ skilled nail technicians take care of you for a little while and walk out of this Hamptons-inspired nail salon feeling refreshed and ready to bring it on again. Grab this once a year treat only at the country’s top destination for relaxation and real pampering.

What’s in SM CDO Downtown Premier? Is it Flood Free?


SM CDO Downtown Premier is SM Prime Holding’s 61st mall, the sixth in Mindanao, and the second in Cagayan de Oro. It is a 5-level, 177,743.21 square meter mall located at the busy intersection of Claro M. Recto Avenue and Osmena Streets. There is also a prime office space of eight floors in the future BPO tower.

Worried about flooding? SM CDO Downtown Premier is said to be equipped with Rainwater Catchment System – it’s a basin underneath the Main Mall Building measuring 3,000 square meters and six meters deep. It can hold up to 13, 650 cubic meters of water or close to 13.7 million liters of water.  The tank capacity was based on the 24- hour rainfall intensity of 455 mm brought by Typhoon Ondoy in 2009. With that worry off your list – let’s get back in SM. 😛

SM CDO Downtown Premier brings an uptown vibe to the downtown area. The five floors includes The SM Store and SM Supermarket which are its major retail anchors, as well as the SM mainstays like SM Appliance, Toy Kingdom, Our Home, Surplus, Sports Central and Pet Express.  The mall will also have hundreds of stores – fashion boutiques, shoe stores, home stores, novelty stores, and more, including a Cyberzone for the tech generation, and a Wellness Center.

Global brands are also there like Forever 21 (now open), Uniqlo (opens on June 30!), Miniso, The Body Shop, Watsons, Ace Hardware, Crocs, Giordano, The Face Shop, and Oakley, as well as well-loved Filipino brands like National Bookstore, Bench, and Penshoppe.

For foodies, outdoor dining will enliven the street with restaurant balconies available on both sides. SM CDO Downtown Premier also has a Food Hall with wide variety of food choices and eating out options ranging from local and international fast food chains to specialty restaurants. Foodies will surely love trying out the mall’s homegrown restaurants which I’ve personally tried and would recommend – Missy Bonbon, Bigby’s, Damaso, Hanabel’s, and Hungry Plate. For desserts or just a quick healthy munch or gulp – I would recommend Fruitfull. I have still yet to explore these homegrown restaurants: Ribs and Bibs, Chez Marie, Salo Salo sa Panagatan, Barkadahan Grill, Bingsoo, Naicha, Sweet Cravings and Arturos. Here’s a video of the Food Hall a day before the opening:
