Curated beauty

Monica R. Lopez

THE thing about getting pampered is that it’s not just about the series of treatments that’s important. It’s also the assurance you get knowing you’re in good hands. That applies to everything from the tools used down to the quality of service.

Prisca by Hollywood Nails & Spa promises just that—quality in every aspect that’s easy on the pocket.

This latest addition to Ayala Center Cebu’s list of beauty and wellness centers is a mother-daughter venture by Niña Mabatid, president and chief executive officer of Pinoycare Visa Center, together with her daughter Iah Mabatid Alcuizar.

It offers a long list of services for manicures and pedicures going beyond the basics as well as facials and permanent makeup (microblading, eyebrow tinting and tattoo, upper lid tattoo) to name a few. Other services include lash lift and tinting, eyelash extensions and radio frequency treatments.

Apart from that, the place also displays top-quality and reputable brands in the business including ones like Morgan Taylor, Gelish and OPI (with more still to come).

Prisca takes pride not just in its list of treatments and brands it carries but also in its attention to detail—this includes hygiene and its skilled nail technicians armed with years of experience. Hygiene is of utmost importance and something it takes seriously as it promises to use hygenic products with tools stored in sterile paper making it more clean and more personalized.

Mirroring that of Niña’s personality, together with its interior, getting pampered at Prisca feels even more special. The salon illuminates the basement level of the mall with its well-lit, colorful space, fusing muted neutrals and poppy colors overall evoking a chic and elegant vibe.

Prisca by Hollywood Nails & Spa is located at Basement 1, Ayala Center Cebu.
