Need to prime and primp your digits? We’re dishing out the dirt on the top places to get a manicure and pedicure in Jakarta.
It’s no secret that we love getting pampered. From a fabulous blow out to an indulgent massage, there’s nothing better than treating ourselves to a little me-time. That’s why when it came to sourcing the best places for a manicure and pedicure in Jakarta, we happily did the field work for you. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it. Whether you’re into gel, nail art, or a simple, pretty polish, here’s the dirt on the best nail salons in town.
Blow and Glow
We love treating ourselves to a cream bath and blowout here, and for added indulgence, book in a mani pedi at Blow and Glow. Whether you’re going for an understated polish or want to dazzle with glitter and modern shapes, the results are totally worth it.

We love Kimi – their attentive technicians understand that each person needs a different treatment depending on the condition of their nails. This means no hard-selling of stuff you don’t need. But once you sit in their oh-so-relaxing spa massage chair (something you can’t really find elsewhere), you may keep those treatments coming! They also carry a wide range of brands like Chanel, O.P.I, CND, and Precision. Try Magnetic Gel Polish for some layering fun.

One of the most popular places to get waxing done, Pink Parlour also offers mani and pedi services. They have the Speedy treatment for a quick stop-and-go, or opt for the Princess mani/pedi for more pampering (Pssst, they have treatments for your guy, too!). We just hope he (or you) doesn’t mind the overdose of pink decor.
