It's been eons since my last manicure. In an effort to save money, I've completely eliminated unnecessary spa treatments and instead do them myself at home (if I have time - which is pretty much never). But eventually you reach a point where you need a little bit of pampering, so when my friend asked if I wanted to get a manicure with her before our friends' wedding, I said absolutely YES!

Neither of us had been to Tierra Mia before, and since she was really intrigued I agreed to try them out. She made the appointment for us (a deposit is required, apparently), and I would recommend it since its a very small salon. They only offer nail care and some wax treatments, which I may be tempted to try out on another occasion. We were greeted by a lovely girl who was also a nail technician, and with their help chose colors from their water-based polish supply. My friend chose their signature manicure with coconut oil and coconut shavings exfoliant, while I opted for their special spa manicure that involved a massage with mango seed pulp, sea salt scrub exfoliant, and then a lime-cucumber pulp massage. I was a shot of alcohol and a small umbrella away from being a tropical drink! Both nail technicians were very nice, professional, and gave us nice clean manicures. While her nails were drying, my friend enjoyed some Colombian drink with cane sugar and lime juice, and we were also offered Colombian dark chocolate with coffee (delish!).
