This relaxing little gem of a salon offers all sorts of treatments. You name it, they’ll do it; hair, nails, massages, waxing and more.
Queens Beauty Lounge is perfect for some well-deserved, end-of-the-week pampering, if you live or work in JLT or Dubai Marina. Calm classical music is playing in the background when we arrive at the JLT branch, which is refreshing after a busy day.
Two comfortable adjustable sofa chairs occupy most of the salon and at the back there is a row of salon chairs where our therapist, Blossom, introduces us to a new kind of nail polish. Not only is Evo Reflective Line Effect super trendy and totally bang-on for the festive season, it is also natural and chemical free. Apparently the formula allows your nails to breathe and stay healthy whilst wearing long-lasting colours.
Blossom takes great care in perfecting the manicure and our hands feel brand new before the polish is applied. We go for a dark purple; perfect for ‘winter’ fashions. After applying the last layer of colour, she hovers a little magnet on a stick over each nail to create the 3D line effect. This gives our nails a smooth natural curve and shimmers beautifully in the sun once we step outside.
Our nails are as hard as after a typical gel treatment and have a tiger-eye gem stone effect for that extra bit of glam. More than a week later and our nails haven’t budged, but we’re assured that as strong as it is, this is a natural treatment that doesn’t damage your nails as much as other products.
