Jakarta brides! Wishing for glamorous wedding nails that sparkle along with the details in your bridal gown, or a fun manicure that matches the colours in your overall wedding theme? We dish out the best places to get your digits polished and pampered in Jakarta...
O.P.I might be mass market, but it’s still one of the most trusted nail polish brands in the world. Care for your nails at one of their four authorised salons in your favourite malls with O.P.I’s top-of-the-line nail-care treatments. And if you fancy giving yourself mani-pedis at home, this is the place to get authentic O.P.I products, since we know there are plenty counterfeited ones out there!
O.P.I Nail Spa, Plaza Senayan, Plaza Indonesia, Mal Taman Anggrek, and Gandaria City.
Kookoo has been one of our go-tos for ages thanks to their affordable prices, homey setting, over-the-top (in a good way) hospitality and up-to-date polish selections from O.P.I and China Glaze. If you need to be free of fuzz, they also have waxing treatments. Top off your treatments by taking advantage of the surrounding street-food vendors and restaurants – the staff from Kookoo will send someone to fetch your favourite grub so you can dine while being pampered. Tip: Purchase your personal mani-pedi tool kit from them – they’ll sanitise and store it for your next visit.
Kookoo, Jl. Cikajang No. 39 Kebayoran Baru, Jakarta Selatan 12170, P: +62 21 720 3393.
Sassi Beauty Nail & Spa
Located in six malls throughout the city, take a break at Sassi during your next shopping spree. This establishment is staffed with the finest nail-technician graduates from their own academy – big on hygiene and technology, and really professional. Plus, if you like the products they use here, you can get them online.
Sassi Beauty Nail & Spa, Plaza Indonesia, Plaza Senaya, eX Plaza Indonesia, Mall of Indonesia, Metro Gandaria City, and Lotte Shopping Avenue. See here for more details.
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 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 might want pampering options to keep on 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.
Kimi, Lippo Mall Kemang, LG Floor, Jl. Pangeran Antasari, Jakarta Selatan, P: +62 21 2905 6846.
One of the most popular places to get waxing done, Pink Parlour also offers mani and pedi services. Pop in and get the Speedy treatment for a quick fix, or opt for the Princess mani/pedi for a proper pamper session (pssst, they have treatments for your man, too – if he doesn't mind sitting among an explosion of pink decor!).
Pink Parlour, Pacific Place Mall, Lower Ground Floor No.16, Jl. Jend. Sudirman Kav 52-53 Jakarta Selatan, P: +62 21 5140 0627.

One word to describe the mismatched vintage furniture and everything pastel in this nail salon is cute! If you’re a fan of chic and trendy nail art, this is the place to go. They have a variety of the currently popular nail foils, which can be applied in a jiffy. Don’t worry if you have to bring the littlies with you, the folks at Geez have a special spot with mini lounges and a TV for them.
Geeznails, Jl. Panglima Polim 5 No. 38, Jakarta Selatan, P: +62 822 1100 8080.
If you’re giving instructions in English and are often rewarded with blank stares at the salon, rest assured you won’t have this problem at Nikki’s Salon. The employees speak pretty good English, which is why you’ll notice expats making up a large part of its loyal clientele. It’s a full-service beauty salon, so you can also get your blow-outs done before the big day.
Nikki’s Salon, Jl. Kemang Raya No. 47A , Jakarta Selatan, P: +62 21 719 2917.
