One of my favorite things to do is get a full service mani-pedi foot spa treatment. I do this at least twice a month, and it’s often the only respite I get from the daily routine of housekeeping, working from home and homeschooling. (I still bring Krista with me to the nail salon, though!) Last month, I had the pleasure of throwing a spa party for Zoya Philippines (who are loyal readers of the blog!), for some of my nailaholic friends as well as new friends from the nail salon circuit in Manila. The party was dubbed “Blissful with Zoya” and was held in the SM Mega Mall branch of Beauty & Butter last September 22, 2015. The event was a partnership between Make it Blissful and Eiskin Laboratories, Inc., the exclusive distributors of Zoya here in the Philippines.
Around 30 guests comprising bloggers, beautyphiles and nail spa owners came, and were welcomed into the nail salon which had been transformed into a nail polish shoppers’ paradise, thanks to the impeccable styling of The Creative Bunny event specialists. Headed by Betchay Salustiano (the chief stylist at the Creative Bunny), the styling team complemented the look and feel of Beauty & Butter with their setup for the day:
An exclusive shopping area comprising displays of Zoya nail polish greeted guests at the entryway. Each shelf panel displayed a collection of Zoya nail polishes, including the Magical Pixie Dust Collection, the Delight collection, the Naturel Collection, and the base coat, top coat sets, which are part of Zoya’s unique Color Lock System. The collections were flanked by candylicious treats in styled apothecary jars and trays, giving the shopping area an overall sweet flair. Of particular interest and Instagrammable worth, were the custom cupcakes with fondant toppers in the shape of Zoya nail polishes.
The highlighted collections of the day were the Naked Manicure, the Naturel Deux collection, and Make it Blissful’s choice of the day, the Natural Satins 2015 collection, which featured a soothing palette of pastel hued nudes in matte finish. I fell in love with this transitional collection, because it was sooooooo me! I love wearing pastels on my nails, and these were just too pretty to ignore! I also loved the corrective and nurturing Naked Manicure system.
The spa-rty was an overall success for the guests. For beauty and style blogger Alexandra Lapa, it was herthe first time to try Zoya, and instantly fell in love with the matte shades, particularly the Godiva matte glitter polish.
Soy Molina, proprietor of L’il Nail Hand & Foot Spa, said it was fortuitous to finally meet the EiSkin team, and connect directly to the distribution arm, while nail artist Myriel Bernardo of Hot Moms Nail Art (@hotmomsnailarts on Instagram) mentioned that the formulation of Zoya made it ideal for long wearing designs, especially since Zoya’s “big-5-free” formulation, means it doesn’t cause the nails to yellow (or more importantly, harm one’s health).
Each guest was treated to a full service Zoya mani-pedi and polish, while snacking on hearty lasagnes and chicken & fish fingers, provided by Almost Gourmet. Five winners of Zoya mani-pedi-polish sessions were chosen during the special raffle portion, and every guest went home with a beautifully bottled set of Zoya polishes and nail spa supplies.
Guests actively participated in the social media coverage of the event, by uploading their Instagram posts to #BlissfulWithZoyaPH and #zoyaPH.
