In need of a full-on foot pampering?
NStyle at The Dubai Mall can transform tired tootsies with the luxurious Margaret Dabbs treatment. Complete with scrubs, massages and masks, it will freshen up not only your nails but your back, legs, arms, hands and feet as well.
Friendly receptionists and an entire wall of every nail polish colour you can imagine greets us at NStyle. Comfortable lounge-style seating surrounds manicure stations primed for an hour of two of pampering.
Although there’s a steady flow of customers and stylists passing through to the adjoining hair salon, where we’re sitting is quiet and relaxing.
Our nail technician helps us pick perfect colour from the scores available. Besides having a mani, she explains that they will lavish scrubs, creams and masks upon us, all endorsed by nail queen Dabbs, to intensely hydrate and leave our hands and skin looking A-list.
Whilst the mani and pedicurists prepare, the masseuse starts her shoulder massage. Then they scrub our hands and feet to get rid of any dead skin – gross, but necessary if you want to show off that mani-pedi to perfection – before painting our nails in our chosen hue. This treatment not only promotes ultimate relaxation, but leaves you looking good and feeling refreshed from tips to toes.
Podiatrist turned businesswoman Margaret Dabbs has a chain of salons in London and the feet of celebrities under her care. Here in Dubai, we can take advantage of her expert knowledge with a range of signature treatments at NStyle Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates, starting from AED 130 for a 30-minute mani.
