This is part of social enterprise The Shiok Co.’s monthly series, PurposeSG, where it collaborates with local entrepreneurs and beneficiaries to give back to the community, as well as to raise awareness of local start-ups.
This time, they have teamed up with fellow social enterprise The Nail Social – which helps women from low-income households and single mothers – as well as spa and salon network GetKlarity and customisable nail wrap service INNI Nails.
From 10:30am to 7:30pm on March 29, you’ll be able to enjoy an express manicure and pedicure, complete with a nail wrap.
Each set costs $38, and 50 per cent of the proceeds will go towards BABES, a teenage pregnancy crisis centre that provides a support hotline for teens dealing with pregnancy.
So looks like you’ve got your monthly manicure all sorted out, but for an even better purpose. Feels good, doesn’t it?
Get your tickets here. (No walk-ins will be accepted for the event.)
