[BEAUTY REVIEW] Princess For A Day ft. Prisca De Nails @ Taman Gaya, JB

In my dreams, I could be a princess.
Wearing fancy dresses, 
dancing across a ballroom floor,
and wearing a gorgeous crown
which sparkles in the sunlight. 

Little did I know that one day, my dream came true.

Every woman can look stunningly beautiful, if she takes care of herself. Nails, often a neglected part of body, should be an essential part of beauty routine. Keeping them neat and nice is important, but there is so much more you can do when it comes to making them truly look like you. Whether you choose to decorate your nails with flowers, beads, stripes or polka-dots, your nails should be beautiful and an expression of yourself. Therefore, I decided that it's time to pamper my nails! I am glad to be invited by Joan to do my nails at her newly opened shop, Prisca De Nails at Taman Gaya, JB.

The moment I stepped into Joan's place, it felt just like home. The comfy sofas create a warm, relaxing feeling. I like the bright, open and spacious feel of the space.

For mummy to leave their kids here while doing their nails!

Wide selection of nail colours in the shelves.

The lady boss, Joan started learning basic manicure in 2006. Throughout these 9 years, she went through a lot of ups and downs. Got married and gave birth to her first child, it was hard for her to maintain her interest in nail art. Struggled when she was a part time manicurist, she decided to take up manicure course again to improve her skills. In 2013, she finally obtained her Odyssey Nails System Certificate. And now, she resigned from her job to become a professional manicurist. Really admire her spirit of never stop learning and pursuing her dream!

With the experiences gained over the years, Joan has won a lot of awards and certificates. She was the Grand Champion in a competition between Odyssey nail-art students. In 2014, she also won prizes for nail art sculpture, 3D nail art, acrylic French nail sculpture and Top 3 in Division 1.


Joan likes to spend her leisure time doing nail samples. She loves to try out and discover new designs, which explains the variety of designs she has here!

I really love the sunflowers! So delicate and pretty.

So many designs to choose from! I couldn't make up my mind which designs I like best. 
Floral, bridal nails, french nails, world cup, pastel colour, polka dots, leopard prints - you name it, Joan has it! She is very patient and kind so feel free to discuss your preference with her. If you provide her with a photo sample, she can even customise your desired design for you!

Joan is very patient and gentle while doing my nails. Firstly, she shaped my nails into slightly rounded nail shape. She applied some cuticle softener and cut away the thickened skin around my nails. Excess cuticle and callouses were also removed. Then slowly she started to paint my nails in layers, allowing each layer to dry between coats. She was extra cautious and careful when she was putting the jewels.

Joan allowed the gel polish to dry by using this UV light device.

Another LED device to speed up the drying process.

After around 2 hours, my nails are done!

I chose this French-nail inspired nail designs because I always prefer design which is not too boring and not too loud. French manicure is a classic and will always be in style. It creates a very clean and elegant look. Inspired because traditionally French nails have a pale pink base and bright white tips. Joan suggested me to change to nude base with soft pink tips, creating a very sweet feeling. I love the jewels that were added along the demarcation line between the nude and pink colours.

Ribbons and pearls for a sweeter, calmer and more girly look.

Spot the little cute bear on my ring finger. It is the dangling kind! OMG major loveeeee.

Princess got her nails done and is ready for a date with the prince! Hehe.
Thank you Joan for transforming my nails into a beautiful piece of art.
