#NailCrush: I nailed it at Nbar Ibn Battuta!

If you follow me on Instagram you will probably have noticed I do tend to take pictures of my nails quite a lot! I do love nails… I just think polished, well-groomed, coloured nails are the epitome of femininity! And seeing by the number of nail salons around Dubai I’m not the only one!

IMG_3881 For me it’s important to find a place where I feel relaxed and confortable and where my nails are looked after in an impeccable manner. Every time. I do like consistency so… I finally found a place where the quality is consistent, the ambiance is fun, the choice of polishes and colours extensive and that place is the Nbar at my local mall, Ibn Battuta!

After a 2-week long holiday in France, by -5C, my hands and nails were looking worse for wear so off I went hoping the girls at Nbar could somehow salvage my dry, brittled nails.


I decided to try out their Shellac Manicure, said to not be as damaging as Gelish to the nail and to still last for a couple of weeks.

The colour selection is pretty amazing and it did take me a few minutes to make my mind up! They also have this super cute wall of inspiration with lots of different nail art designs… I’ll have to try of these next time for sure 😉

In the end I picked up a lovely dark browny plum colour which I love and thought would be perfect for the winter season!

The whole process took about 1hr and I left with hands & nails looking FAB! The girls were super nice and I had a lot of fun.

Will defo return and can really vouch for this place!
