Vanitee- The one stop app you need for beauty services

*UPDATE: Make any booking on Vanitee by 14 February 2016and get a FREE Beauty Kit from VanityTrove worth $30 when you use this promo code - "EILEENCNY"

I'm a huge believer that time is important so if you can find something which helps you to save tons of time, it's definitely something worth investing. I'm not sure about you but for me, I always spend long hours doing research on the beauty salons in Singapore to see which ones are good enough for me/conveniently located/good reviews/value for money etc. I'm always looking at instagram pictures with their relevant hashtags, reading blog posts on customer's review to try to get a gauge on what I'm going to be experiencing if I were to try out a particular service at that place.

Then, I was introduced to Vanitee. And it saved me loads of time!
Vanitee is a mobile app which helps users browse and book appointments easily for beauty related services.
All you have to do is download "Vanitee".

If you want to get your nails, makeup and/or hair done professionally for a special event (Since Chinese new year and Valentine's day is just around the corner!) or even get some lash extension to save time, Vanitee has those options for you to choose from!


After selecting the category, you can view recent works by the artist in the Vanitee community or browse through all the artists available. Some artist even provide house call service as well, so you can just wait in the comfort of your home instead of travelling down to the shop!
The artists have all been verified by the Vanitee team so you can rest assure that they can be trusted.


After clicking into the artist profile, you can view their work gallery to check out some of their works and also browse through their service menu for the pricing! Each of the artist also have a star rating by other customers (together with their reviews) and you can also see how popular they are by the number of bookings they have.

Since Chinese new year is in roughly one week time, I decided to make an appointment to get my nails done! After browsing through numerous profiles, I finally decided to try out Thistlebellenail since she has really great reviews, tons of bookings and also, 5 star ratings!

All I have to do is to select the option for Chinese new year booking for Thistlebellnail, select the date and time, key in my credit card details and the booking will be confirmed instantly. How good is that?!

You are able to view your upcoming appointments on the app as well so you won't have to worry about forgetting them! The location of the shop is provided together with a map so that you're unlikely to get lost.

The app will send an SMS confirmation to you 24 hours before the appointment and also, an hour before your appointment to remind you! Payment wise, the artist will let you know the actual amount after the service is done and it would be charged straightaway to your credit card through the app so you won't need to do anything getting all glam up.

Thistlebellenail is owned by Junying, who opened a nail salon called Miwa with her friends. It is conveniently located near Upper thomson, the stretch of road right behind the lane of shops with the prata shop and udders.

For my nails, I decided to get a nude color gel base with silver foil design, together with a light pink acrylic heart and some crystals on both of my fourth fingers. I love how I can create tiny rainbows on my nails just by reflecting light off the silver foil!
This set cost about $130 (inclusive of the $20 CNY surcharge that they had).

Junying was really meticulous in her work, very talented and skilled as well! I can totally see myself coming back to Miwa to get my nails done by her in the future.

Now I have super pretty nails for CNY and Valentine's day. I also booked my second appointment to get my pedicure done this week. Honestly, it was my first time using the Vanitee app and I'm really loving how easy this is! It is definitely something you should have in your phone if you're constantly investing in getting beauty services done.

I would highly suggest you book your beauty services ASAP because most of the slots are getting filled up really quickly! You can also get a sure-win ang pao with any booking made during the period from now until 14th Feb (where you get to win prizes from $30 Vanitee gift cards to VanityTrove boxes and many more).
