Let your pedicure give you a pep talk with these adorable nail affirmations.
Have a positive mental attitude from the tips of your fingers and toes with The Nail Spa’s ‘Nail your affirmations’ nail art collection.
For those not in the know, affirmations are those nuggets of inspiration that we see on the walls of yoga studios and emblazoned on t-shirts.
Now ladies can add a little pop from 21 pieces of positivity to their mani/pedi at The Nail Spa for AED 15 per claw.
It’s busy when we arrive at the Dubai Mall branch. Each of the 16 mani-pedi chairs are occupied and many of the occupants seem to be regular customers, laughing and chatting with their beauty therapists.
Service is brisk and thorough, with previous polish taken off and hands and feet soaked, scrubbed and filed to perfection. Our nail guru wins our hearts forever by repairing a minor tear rather than sacrificing the length.
We pick bold summer colours Bianca and Amber from the Evo range, which are breathable and nail friendly. Also suitable for vegans, they promise to be kind to animals AND your nails.
Tiny affirmations are transferred on to our ring fingers afterwards. They look super cool, but don’t last as long as the mani, which is flawless until week three.
The Nail Spa has nine salons around Dubai. Find your nearest here, but nail art addicts should head to Mall of the Emirates, with its dedicated nail art bar and creative freehand artist. Drake on your digits? This lady can do it.
The Nail Spa, Dubai Mall. 10am-10pm. Gel mani-pedi: AED 290. Soak off: AED 100 hands and feet. www.thenailspa.com
