Chocolate Spa Pedicure at Spaces Salon
I was excited to check out Spaces salon, by the same owners of Balance, and was eager to try out the Chocolate Spa Pedicure. The treatment consists of Brown Sugar & Vanilla scrub, Chocolate massage cream, Fizzy Cocoa Bean mask and a complimentary Hot Chocolate. The Salon had a great selection of Essie Nailpolish, and was made my way to the nails section (they also have hair treatments & co.) The treatment included the usual spa pedicure routine – cleaning, shaping, buffing, cuticles, but everything smelt of chocolate (which I love.) A great alternative to your usual Chocolate pedicure but wasn’t too fond that they forgot to serve my hot chocolate, and my chair’s leather was peeling – however, overall – left with some pretty nails and soft feet.
Almond manicure and pedicure at Tips and Toes Salon
I recently checked out Tips and Toes Salon’s brand new branch (and is also their signature spa) in Barsha, which is absolutely beautiful! The salon is super spacious, the chairs are ultra comfortable & they also have mini tables attached… For someone that brings magazines, a laptop and coffee – this gets me so happy! I tried the Almond manicure and pedicure – they change treatments on a regular basis. At the moment, they have citrus and almond… Being someone who loves almond, shea, and nutty scents, I leaned over Almond. The treatment consists of add ons to your ordinary mani-pedi like a sweet almond scrub, a light mask they cover with cling wrap, followed by a sweet almond lotion. Heavenly, and my skin felt soft and hydrated.
Creme de la Creme manicure at Sugar Urban Nails
I’ve never been to Sugar Urban Nails before, but would pass by it whenever I’d head to Sensasia express. I love good nail salons in malls, as I’m always there for shoot pull outs or meetings (This is Dubai.) So, I finally visited the salon for the first time for a Sexy Soles pedicure (the perfect cure after a night out of dancing, think soothing peppermint!), but even more exciting, a Creme de la Creme manicure. I love everything nutty, vanilla, butter and sugar so it’s no surprise I fell in love with this manicure. Firstly, I must say… the salon is adorable, mini, but super cute! Gossip girl on, a selection of colors to choose from from OPI to China Glaze (I never see this brand in Dubai, and love that Sugar Urban have it). The treatment started off with a cream soak, moving on the typical salon cleaning/shaping, my therapist then applied a delicious handmade (note, handmade!) Brown sugar scrub – I could not help smelling my arms. A detox mask was then applied to my hands and part of my arms covered with plastic and heated mitts for my skin to absorb the detoxifying mask. 10 mins, it was removed and I was treated to a lovely massage using vanilla & sweet almond butter. aaaah. Next on my list? Their Hot Milk & Almond manicure! For more details, click here.
