After much googling, I decided to visit NBar Grosvenor House, Dubai Marina for a manicure and pedicure- just a part of my maintenance routine. As well as regular hair treatments (Blow dries, colour, cut, conditioning treatments), eyebrow shaping, manicure and pedicure are also essential to my beauty maintenance routine. I usually have my hair colour, eyebrows, manicure and pedicure done before I travel anywhere and it’s usually sufficient for the trip. However, my current stay in Dubai is longer than usual and it forced me to find places to have all these treatments done.
I chose a French Shellac Manicure and a French Soothe & Smooth Pedicure from the NBar Grosvenor House menu- my feet deserved extra pampering after all the extra pain and suffering I’ve put them through since I’ve been in Dubai…
Malou my Manicurist was incredibly sweet and asked me my preferences for base colour for french, how much cuticle I want cut and how thick I want my white tip which was reassuring. The cleaning of the nail bed was done throughly, shellac was painted well and to my taste. she finished with cuticle oil and I even got a bit of a hand and arm massage which was lovely.
Charis my pedicurist did the usual cuticle work(also done thoroughly), scrub and filing on my feet and finished with a mask which was removed with exfoliating gloves. My feet were left feeling beautifully soft and my french toes were painted perfectly. A bit of a leg and foot massage completed the treatment and I felt incredibly relaxed.
I asked to have my eyebrows done too so Reeta came into the pedicure room with a tray and placed a cushion under my neck so she could thread my eyebrows while my manicure was being finished. Charis held my eyebrows while Reeta threaded them so my nails weren’t ruined- all of this saved time! Reeta was hands down one of the best Eyebrow technicians I have EVER come across. I am growing out my eyebrows in a couple of places to change the shape and asked her to leave the hair in certain places. She instantly understood what I wanted and I was shocked when I looked in the mirror. I didn’t recognise my eyebrows, she did such an amazing job! She managed to make my eyebrows look less misshapen and reduce the appearance of gaps; all very gently done.
The Mani & Pedi were also done simultaneously to save time- one of the many things I love about Dubai and in particular NBar Grosvenor House. I would highly recommend NBar Grosvenor House for residents and tourists. There are a few branches so you’re never far from one and for anyone looking for a good eyebrow shape; Reeta at NBar Grosvenor House is your saviour!
