Hello Everyone,

“LIFE is not perfect, but your NAILS can be.”

I feel you are never fully dressed without a good manicure and that’s why I am constantly in search of a good salon with affordable manicure and services.

I came across POSH SIGNATURE SALON located in the corners of Karama in Dubai. I was looking to do a manicure and the salon owner suggested I should go for Polygel Manicure. I was in a huge dilemma whether to go for gel manicure again (after what it did to my nails the last time I got it done, kept chipping and got extremely weak) but all my worries were solved once I spoke to one of their friendly staff at the Salon. She provided me all the information I needed to know before we started.

The salon true to its name has interiors done in royal colors; purple and gold. Its a spacious salon with different areas for nails, hair and facial and wax rooms. I was taken to the nail station where Lizal, the polygel expert made me comfortably sit. The other staff was quite friendly and Lizal was very sweet. For 3 hours very perfectly and patiently, she did my manicure. Let me give you some information about Polygel.

Polygel from Gelish is not an acrylic, not a hard gel, it combines the best of both in a revolutionary all-in-one system that’s undeniably better! POLYGEL® is an all-in-one formula for the perfect working consistency. No monomer, no mixing, no ratios. The odorless formula allows you to work as fast or as long as you want. Tube dispensing allows you to use just what you need for no wasted product. Formulated using a game-changing polymer fusion, PolyGel’s breakthrough TriPolymer Technology™* delivers gravity-defying performance for astonishingly easy, chase-free applications.

Here are some Pros:

  • Lightweight – nearly 25% lighter then acrylics
  • Smells pleasant – no monomer required
  • Flexible
  • Durable
  • No heat spikes – as long as you apply correctly
  • Endless playtime
  • Easy to file – dust falls downwards
  • can apply any nail paint on top (gelish or normal- this was wow for me because if I get bored with ombre nails, I can easily apply any nail color on top of it)

The process started with using the PRO BOND Nail primer applying it directly on my natural nails. Next step is using the PH BOND dehydrator on the nails again. She then started with Bright white Opaque and Cover Pink Opaque Polygel nail enhancement and carefully started building the ombre look by mixing the white and pink using a soft brush.

Once that was done she used the top coat with Natural white gel to finish the look. She was so sweet to even beautify my nails with diamonds on two of my nails.

This is the final look of my nails. I’m in LOVE LOVE LOVE with the ombre nails and diamonds. I am really happy with the perfection and the way it was done so patiently. This salon has become one of my favorites in Dubai for a manicure. I will definitely come back for more services.

BTW, they have a super offer going until the end of February. Polygel manicure is just for 185AED instead of 350AED. I think that’s really awesome 🙂

Hello Everyone,

Looking for a quick blow dry for your hair or a trendy braid and updos. Then go on and read this blog. Today I am writing about my experience in BE BAR Blow Dry Bar. This salon is located at Jumeirah Beach road. And I think it has the cutest entrance door. There is no way you cannot spot the Turquoise door while you drive down. Have a look at the below picture.

As soon as you enter the door, you will see a beautiful cozy corner on your right-hand side and stairs to go up to the salon and the reception. The salon is decorated throughout with the signature colors of white and turquoise, is stunning, with plenty of natural light and contemporary interiors. The layout of the salon is unique since they have the bar-style round stations with mirrors where the clients are seated around during their services. One of the walls is this old vintage looking brick wall with light airy curtains and 3-side mirror. I love the way they put up their inspiring taglines on all the walls. One of which was my favorite “Be You. Shine True.”

About the salon, Be Bar is Dubai’s premier hair styling salon specializing in a range of blow-dry styles, updos, braids, intensive scalp and hair treatments and nails. This salon does not offer any haircut or hair color. They have a very interesting menu for their Blow dry services with lots of inspirational styles shown on an iPad. After seeing all their styles, I opted for BE BEACHY, which is, messy waves giving off a relaxed and beachy vibe. Before the stylist could start my service, she gave me a beverage menu, which had amazing options. While sipping my coffee the stylist very calmly blow-dried my hair in sections before curling with an iron and pinning each curl close to my head to cool. She then brushes out the curls and pins them into place before liberally spritzing with hairspray.

The end result was just so surprising. I never liked curls on my hair since I have short hair but this was just so shocking. The beachy waves looked so naturally done and I kid you not the blow dry stayed for more than 2 days.


  • The staff was very friendly and experienced.
  • They use good products and heat protection spray before.
  • The salon has a relaxing vibe and it’s a pleasant place to be.
  • They sell some amazing products from Bando.


  • There’s nothing I did not love about this salon.

Do you have acne-prone skin? And are you afraid to do any kind of facial or treatment on your face just like me? Then I guess your worries are over with the facial I recently got done at The Artist Beauty Lounge. Read below to know more.

Since I have acne on my face since two years now, I am afraid to use any new products apart from my tea tree products I use from The Bodyshop. But then when I went for my Olaplex treatment, my sweet friend Reshu Malhotra from The Artist Beauty Lounge recommended me to go with the Dermalogica Medi Bac facial at their salon. At first, I was very hesitant but then its been long time I didn’t get any facial I thought of trying it. Before I share my experience, I want to give you guys some information about Dermalogica.

The Artist Beauty Lounge is a certified Dermalogica beauty salon with certified Dermalogica skin therapists. Dermalogica is an American personal care company headquartered in Carson, California. Its product portfolio includes cleansers, exfoliants, toners, masques, eye treatments, and moisturizers, as well as an acne treatment line. Dermalogica is a product line free of common irritants and ingredients that could cause breakouts. All the Dermalogica skin treatments are designed based on each person’s skin; therefore each treatment is different.

On reaching the salon, I was greeted by the Therapist Rani, she was the one doing my facial. She also did my Olaplex treatment (read my previous blog for that experience) at The Artist Beauty Lounge. The staff at this salon is very friendly and always makes me feel at home. She gave me a Dermalogica Consultation Card to fill out the details about me and specific concerns I have about my skin. This helped her to understand my skin and my daily routine back better. Thereafter she took me to the facial room which was quite cozy and had a relaxing feel to it. Now, on to the treatment:

The treatment room

Dermalogica Products

1.  First, my face was thoroughly cleansed.  As what the therapist told me, they do double cleansing in Dermalogica. I personally love that since all the oil and dirt is removed.

2.  After cleansing was the face-mapping. This is where my skin was analyzed from the forehead up to the collarbone to identify my skin’s problems and needs.  I was told that I have a combination skin: dry on the cheeks, oily on the t-zone.  Also, she told me my skin was very dehydrated and I should start drinking double the quantity of water compared to what I drink now.

3. An enzymatic exfoliation serum was applied and massaged on my face followed by a facial brush.

4.  After the exfoliation, a serum was applied to my face.  According to the skin therapist, it is to aid in the extraction. Then my skin was generously steamed prior to the application of the extraction fluid.  I was literally trying to stop myself from dozing off, but laying there, with the relaxing music and the soothing hands of my therapist made it a lot harder for me.

5. Extraction time! Now, I’m sure this is the part that all of us dread the most in facials. C’mon, who wouldn’t hate the pricking and the scraping from that metal tool? The actual extraction took around 10-15 minutes. She removed lots of blackheads and whiteheads which were deep inside my skin. You might be thinking if that way of extraction can actually extract whiteheads and blackheads? Well, I doubted it at first too. But after my facial and the redness all gone, my pores look a lot cleaner most especially those on my nose area.

6. A post-extraction solution was applied on my face.

7. A purifying serum was applied all over my face and then massaged with a galvanic tool.

8. A purifying mask was placed on my face and then followed by a shoulder and arm massage. This was the best part of the facial. I really enjoyed the massage which was much needed.

9. After the mask was taken off, a toner was sprayed on my entire face followed by the application of a moisturizer and an eye cream.

The entire treatment lasted for almost 75mins.

Result: I just loved the way my skin felt post-treatment. The skin was soft a bit red but looked very clear. Those hidden whiteheads under my skin were all gone and there was no more bumpy surface. The next day the redness was gone and my skin felt healthy. Also, I started drinking lots of water now. Its been two weeks since the treatment, I haven’t noticed any bumps and my skin still looks fresh and hydrated.

I would definitely recommend this treatment to all who have acne-prone skin and are afraid to do any facials.  Below are the details for the salon.

Hello Everyone,

Want to get smooth and soft hair? Looking for insurance for your hair? Then go on reading.

I got my hair colored 5 months back and off late my hair started to feel very dry and frizzy due to the heat in Dubai. I usually don’t get any hair treatments done here in Dubai since I prefer India and the hair specialist there. But then I came across this Olaplex treatment at The Artist Beauty Lounge in Dubai. I immediately messaged Reshu who happens to be the Owner of this beautiful salon and cleared all my doubts regarding the treatment. After contemplating I finally booked an appointment and decided to go for it.

The Artist Beauty Lounge is a cute little salon located in Oud Metha. It’s a signature beauty lounge by Makeup Artist and Beauty Expert Reshu Malhotra.

Coming to the treatment, let me give you a bit of information. Olaplex is a simple three-step process, includes a patented active ingredient that works on a molecular level to seek out broken bonds in the hair that are caused by chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage. You can use Olaplex to restore compromised hair or add it to another service to provide the ultimate breakage insurance.

Olaplex is a three-part treatment, the first two of which have to be done in a salon. Nevilles, in the heart of the glossy Belgravia in London, was the first salon in the UK to stock it so now more than anyone its revolutionary qualities. Having color-damaged hair myself (a salon back in India once turned me away and refused to do my highlights because it was so bad – a real low point), I was intrigued to see if it lived up to the hype, so I popped into getting the almighty Olaplex.

It works in three steps, here’s how:

  1. Olaplex Number 1: This concentrated first salon step rebuilds broken disulfide bonds and begins the process of preventing damage and repairing hair. Bond Multiplier is used as a stand-alone treatment. It was put on my hair and kept for 10 minutes.
  2. Olaplex Number 2: The second salon step continues to rebuild and restore any remaining broken bonds ensuring the strongest, shiniest, and healthiest hair possible. Bond Perfector is then put on the hair and this is left on for a good 25 minutes to really get the most out of its chemical mending.
  3. Olaplex Number 3: Hair Perfector is where you take things into your own hands. The third step is a take home treatment, which is recommended to use once a week. Apply to damp hair, comb through, and leave on for a minimum of 10 minutes at home before washing as normal. If you want to maximize the effect, leave it on overnight.


So the first and second step was done at the salon. Rani, the lady who did my treatment was very sweet and explained me all the steps before doing it. After the final wash and blow dry, I kid you not my hair became soooooo SOFT and silky. My hair felt genuinely smoother and looked far less frazzled than it did when I walked in. You can tell why they’re calling it insurance for your hair. I was really amazed by the way my hair turned out to be. Check out my picture below and see the difference.

This treatment is really worth doing it and it’s quietly affordable. It costs around 250 AED and the 3rd step is for 100AED for you to take it home. Reshu, the sweetest person also recommended me to repeat this treatment after a month in order to get the best results. It’s been two weeks I got this treatment done and I can’t stop touching my soft hair.

Hello Everyone,

This is the first time I am going to write a review about a salon. So I randomly saw this salon “The Bridal Lounge” on Groupon and bought the manicure pedicure combo deal. The Bridal Lounge is located on Al Wasl Road in one of the villa. It is basically a one-stop-lounge where brides can fulfill all their big day preparations without worrying about the many little inconveniences that come with it. Along with their Salon and Spa services, they also provide Wedding Event services and Bridal Wear. They have some well-known international bridal designers who are famous for their elegant wedding and evening gowns.


The minute I entered the salon, I fell in love with their interiors and the pastel color combination used. The walls have a fresh lemon yellow color with beautifully carved white frames and wainscot. Few things I really liked was their reception area, chandeliers, white furniture and beautiful flower arrangements. I was also impressed by the spacious areas for different services and cleanliness of the entire salon. They have bridal rooms for a bride to get comfortably ready for her BIG day.

Nail services had a separate room where I was taken and asked to sit in a comfortable massage chair. I had chosen classic manicure pedicure combo which was around 79 dirhams on Groupon. The minute I entered the room I was so happy because they have my favorite brand for nail polish which is OPI. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. And very carefully and attentively they did my manicure and pedicure. I love the fact how perfectly they cut the cuticles from my nails and did an amazing job on scrubbing and massaging my feet. I was offered a perfect cup of cappuccino with some Lotus biscuits. One of the best part of my entire experience was that I could watch YouTube on their TV and play my favorite songs and I immediately felt right at home.

Overall this was an amazing experience and I would love to go back again for other services. And last but not the least I am writing this review after nine days and I still have the perfect manicure without any nail chipping. This is BY FAR my best manicure experience.
