Pinky Bee Beauty & Nail Salon


So excited to be sharing my Pinky Bee beauty and nail salon experience on the blog today. Continue reading to see the gorgeous decor and how my nails turned out!













If you missed it on my Instagram stories earlier this week, I had the wonderful oppurtunity to visit Pinky Bee, a beauty and nail salon down here in Puerto Vallarta. Pinky Bee is a salon that has been here in Vallarta for almost three years and the location I visited has been open for almost a year now.  

When I arrived at the Nuevo Vallarta location, I was already in love with the entire look and feel of the salon. It had such a happy and fun vibe to it and the interior design and decor of the place was absolutely beautiful and so chic! I was pretty much obsessed with the look of it! 

My appointment was for a manicure and I had the pleasure of sitting down with Aimee for it. We got to chatting and laughing about all sorts of things such as our lives in Vallarta and TV shows that we have and hadn't watched yet. Aimee first had me soak my fingers/nails in a bowl of warm water to soften my cuticles and nails. Afterwards, she worked on cutting my cuticles and cleaning up the skin around my nails as well as filing them down into more of an oval shape. The next step probably had to have been my favorite part which was an exfoliation and a massage of my arms and hands with creams that smelled absolutely amazing. I may or may not have been smelling my hands throughout the day, lol!

After the exfoliation process, we looked at the sample of nail polish colors that would be perfect for a Valentine's Day look. We decided to go with the Morgan Taylor polish for the both the red and white colors. To really give it a nice Valentin'es Day touch, Aimee drew on the cutest little hearts on the white nails and afterwards topped with off with another coat of clear polish. After the manicure, we started to discuss the difference between gel and shellac for the nails and I really appreciated that she went into so much for detail for me. I didn't really know much about gel or shellac and she helped me understand the difference's between the two and which would keep my nails healthy and natural as possible which is what I had wanted. 

This was my first time at a nail salon and even my first manicure and I have to say, it was one of the best experiences ever! The ladies there were so fantastic and kind, the service was incredible, and I walked out absolutely loving the job done on my nails. All in all, if you're ever in the Nuevo Vallarta area, I would highly recommend checking out Pinky Bee! One of the best salons in the town! <3

A major thank you to Lorena and the Pinky Bee team for the oppurtunity to visit and for the beautiful nails!

Si te lo perdiste en mis historias de Instagram a principios de esta semana, tuve la maravillosa oportunidad de visitar Pinky Bee, un salón de belleza y uñas en Puerto Vallarta. Pinky Bee es un salón que ha estado aquí en Vallarta durante casi tres años y la ubicación que visité ha estado abierta desde hace casi un año.

Cuando llegué a la ubicación de Nuevo Vallarta, ya estaba enamorado de todo el aspecto y la sensación del salón. Tenía un ambiente tan alegre y divertido, y el diseño interior y la decoración del lugar eran absolutamente hermosos y muy chic. ¡Estaba bastante obsesionado con el aspecto!

Mi cita era para una manicura y tuve el placer de sentarme con Aimee para ello. Nos pusimos a conversar y reír sobre todo tipo de cosas, como nuestras vidas en Vallarta y programas de televisión que tenemos y que aún no hemos visto. Aimee primero me hizo empapar mis dedos / uñas en un recipiente con agua tibia para suavizar mis cutículas y uñas. Después, ella trabajó en cortarme las cutículas y limpiar la piel alrededor de mis uñas, así como también rellenarlas en forma más ovalada. El siguiente paso probablemente tuvo que haber sido mi parte favorita, que fue una exfoliación y un masaje de mis brazos y manos con cremas que olían absolutamente increíble. Pude o no haber estado oliendo mis manos durante todo el día, ¡jaja!

Después del proceso de exfoliación, miramos la muestra de colores de esmalte de uñas que sería perfecta para un look de San Valentín. Decidimos usar el pulido Morgan Taylor para los colores rojo y blanco. Para darle un toque agradable al Día de San Valentín, Aimee se dibujó en los corazones pequeños y bonitos sobre las uñas blancas y luego se completó con otra capa de esmalte transparente. Después de la manicura, comenzamos a discutir la diferencia entre el gel y la goma laca para las uñas y realmente aprecié que ella se metiera tanto en los detalles para mí. Realmente no sabía mucho sobre gel o goma laca y ella me ayudó a entender la diferencia entre los dos y que mantendría mis uñas lo más sanas y naturales posible, que es lo que yo quería.

Esta fue mi primera vez en un salón de uñas e incluso mi primera manicura y tengo que decir que fue una de las mejores experiencias de mi vida. Las señoras eran tan fantásticas y amables, el servicio fue increíble, y salí absolutamente adorando el trabajo hecho en mis uñas. Con todo, si alguna vez estás en el área de Nuevo Vallarta, te recomendaría visitar Pinky Bee. ¡Uno de los mejores salones de la ciudad! <3

¡Muchas gracias a Lorena y al equipo de Pink Bee por la oportunidad de visitar y por las bellas uñas!
