Polish Nails Care & More, Abu Dhabi – Review
We review an Arabic bridal hair, nails and make-up make over, at the Polish nails Care & More salon, Abu Dhabi.
- Location and salon:
Polish Nails Care & More is a recently opened hidden gem on Airport Road, behind Al-Hilal Bank, next to the Universal Hospital in Abu Dhabi.
The salon is beautifully designed, modern and colourful, offering plenty of natural light. Polish Nails Care and more, even offer a fully kitted out make-up room, and creche for mothers who want to unwind. They also, have a station deigned purely for little princesses (girls above the age of 3). Offering everything from mani’s and pedi’s, to bridal make-up and hair services, massages, Moroccan baths, waxing and more, it’s a salon you can easily spend a whole day in, being pampered from head to toe.
- The experience:
In the salon I was asked to complete a questionnaire, which included stating my favorite coffee/tea/juice and magazine. Polish will ensure that each time you come for a treatment your favourite drink and magazine will be waiting for you. Amazing! I have never experienced this before. They also offer you an iPad, equipped with earphones, so you can surf the net and watch films, a welcome treat given I spent a total of six hours in the salon. After being introduced to the team responsible for transforming me into an Arabic bride we started with the make-up, followed by hair and last but not least, a full manicure and pedicure.
Make-up: Hayat, the salons make-up artist managed to transform my everyday minimal makeup into a full on glamorous and highly defined Arabic bridal make-up look. Her precision and skills are clearly professional. I was a little taken back when I first looked in the mirror, as I am not used to this style of make-up. However, after a little time getting used to the huge difference, I started to like it. I looked like a different woman, a true Arabic bride.
Hair: Next, onto the hair! After a relaxing wash and rough blow dry, Rana (my hair stylist) got to work curling and pinning my hair up into a glamorous bridal up doo. She was so particular and extremely focused. Finally she completed the up doo by pinning delicate flower clip in to my hair. The overall session took around 1 hour 20 minutes, and the result? A gorgeous bridal hair style any bride would be proud of.
Nails: Finally, after being very still during my hair and make up, I relaxed and reclined into the man/pedi chair and closed my eyes as lovely nail technicians Jessa and Sheryline, got to work on my tired feet and hands with their special spa treatment. After filing, scrubbing and cleaning, I was given a foot mask which was then wrapped tightly in a soothing hot boots. My hands were lathered in scrumptious serum and wrapped in clingfilm, allowing the serum to penetrate deep into my skin.
After an invigorating massage, the ladies proceeded to paint my nails. I chose quite and a strong bold colour for my nails, finished with a little sparkle as many Arabic brides in the region love.
The result? My hands and feet looked younger, brighter and very pretty, as I held up my hands, the light caught the sparkle.
- The conclusion:
Overall, I left the salon feeling truly pampered and taken care of, the Polish Nails Care & More team really do treat each one of their clients like VIP’s. The service and standard is one of the best I have experienced in the region.
The salon offers a variety of bespoke hair and make-up packages and provide all the beauty services a bride to-be will need under one roof, such as hair, make-up, Moroccan Bath, waxing, eyelash extensions, manicures, pedicures, and so on.
