Auum- The Honest Nail Spa [ A Review]

Auum-The Honest Nail Spa

Auum-The Honest Nail Spa

Over the weekend Tiger girl and me were invited for a pampering session at Auum over at the Grandstand. It was the first time that we invited for a mother and child manicure and the little girl was thrilled to get her nails done. It was quite difficult to find the place as it has been a long time since we have visited Turf City.

The listing on the entrance of Pasarbella only stated the names of the food stores which were located within and not the other businesses which were also in the same complex.  Nevertheless we managed to find the place after calling up Lung to ask for directions to her spa.

The floral red chair and the rack of nail polishes being displayed on it at the center of the shop drew my attention when we first stepped into the shop. There is quite a wide array of different colors from various brands to choose from.

The cozy looking nail spa which could accommodate five customers at one go with 3 manicurist servicing the clients.

Tiger girl got settled in really quickly and got really comfy on the seat that she was on and Lung came out to give us a brief on the type of nail polish that they will be using for both of us.

Priti NYC was the brand of nail polish which we would be using. Created by Kim D’amato this line of nail polish was created during her pregnancy in her search for a 5 FREE, VEGAN & NON-TOXIC NAIL POLISH. If you are wondering what 5 Free means it means that the nail polish is free from toluene, dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, and camphor – all known carcinogenic ingredients.

I’m all for non toxic nail polish especially when it comes to it being use on my 2yr old girl.  Tiger girl chose pink and blue from the  Priti Princess line with Kim created  for her daughter Siena.

Auum uses disposable sets for each customer to ensure the highest hygiene standard possible. For items which are metal and non disposable they are sterilized under LED lamps.  You can see the colors that they have in stock for Priti Nyc nail polish from the color wheels above.  I chose a dark purple to match the outfit I had on that day.

As in true princess form she sat quietly while getting both her fingers and toes done.  She didn’t even fuss when the manicurist buffed and primed her nails before it was painted on.

It took about an hour for both of us to get our nails done and we were happy with the results.
