I think the location is pretty good and easy to find. Since it's in the Sri Petaling area, there a lot of nearby shops & restaurants as well (in case you want to eat or you need a place where your friends/family can wait for you while you do your nails).


The interior is quite pretty, and once you enter you'll immediately be drawn to this Instagrammable corner:


What sets Maniqure apart is that they actually have monthly themes and collections. Every month they'll release a catalogue of set designs that relate to a theme, and you can book those designs.


For the month of June, their theme was Picasso nails, and you can see that they created an amazing selection of Picasso-themed nail art designs to choose from!


They also have some of the top monthly designs framed up in their waiting area:


The waiting area actually has iPads for customers to use, and if you come with friends/family who are waiting for you, they can use these as well:


The layout of the nail salon is pretty simple as it's divided in the manicure and pedicure section:


For the pedicure section, they currently only allow three seats to be occupied (due to social distancing SOPs) and I think that's great. There are also iPads here for customers to use!


A shelf with Maniqure's polishes separates the mani and pedi areas:


Here's what the manicure section looks like:


Like the pedicure area, customers are spaced out!

When I arrived, my temperature was taken, I filled in my details and I sanitized my hands. I was then led to my seat and served this cup of nice floral tea:


I was then presented with their app. Maniqure is actually the first nail salon in Malaysia with their own app, and it's available on both iOS and Android.


On the app, you can view all of Maniqure's set designs (including the latest of the month) and view each design's price. What makes it great is that you can directly book a slot for the design you want on the app as well! If you'd like a custom design, you can book an appointment through the app as well.

The last I did my nails was around Chinese New Year, so it's been a good 3 months. My nails just about died during MCO (as you guys can see below), and I was kind desperate need of some nail loving.


On top of the nail artists wearing masks and shields, Maniqure also has these barriers for max protection.


If you guys follow me on Instagram, you'll know that recently I was hit with a case of LV fever. I fell in love with their monogram, especially the giant reverse monogram on this double zip pochette:


Since I didn't manage to get it, I decided to put it on my nails instead haha. I Googled some logo pictures and nail art reference and showed them to my nail artist.

My nail artist was up to the challenge, and she was pretty detailed and intricate with creating my design. I have to say that I had a great conversation with her as well! Having a nice and friendly nail artist is important because having gel nail art done almost always takes more than 2 hours. The 2 hours didn't feel that long because of our conversation flow, and I was impressed how concentrated she was on my nails but still very engaging.


And here's how it turned out! Since she did not use stickers, it's only understandable that it won't come up exactly like the LV print. But being that this was hand-painted, I was super impressed with her skills!


After 3 months of not having my nails done, I felt like I was alive again hahaha


I took more close-ups the next day while I was filming a video, and just look how pretty my nails look!


These are gel by the way! My custom design costs RM208. If you're wondering how much a custom design might cost, you can always contact them and send pictures for a quote.

It's been a few days now since I've gotten my LV nails, and I seriously love them! For the manicure part, I feel like my nail artist did a great job attending to my dry and crusty nail beds and making them pretty again. It did not hurt nor sting at all (like how I experienced at some nail salons), and like I said, I really love how my design turned out.


To be honest, I never did solid colour manicure designs before because I thought it would be too much for my style, but I love how these turned out. I can't stop showing them off!


If you guys are in need of a mani pedi, or if you're getting married and you're surveying for a nail salon that can do your nails for your special day, I highly recommend checking out Maniqure! I think the prices for their services are pretty reasonable (normal gel manicure only costs RM88 which is around the standard price that I see here in KL), and the quality of their service was pretty top notch as well.

And that's it for this blog post! I hope you guys found it helpful and loved my nails as much as I do haha.

See you guys in my next post!
