N.Bar, originally established in 2001, bills itself as a trendsetting nail bar that also serves as a quiet getaway from everyday life for women everywhere. The salon provides various nail services, from nail art to classic treatments. 

Other than its large amount of hand and feet services, the salon also deals with various other beauty treatments, including full facials and lash and brow services. The ability to add on extra services to these treatments, like massages is also appreciated. 

Upon entering the salon, we’ve found that the service at reception is welcoming. The salon offers complimentary drinks and are quick to assist and provide guidance for the upcoming booked service. 

The salon also leaves customers spoiled for choice with regards to the look of their nails, as they have a wide variety of colors and designs available. Guests can consult their online lookbook to help decide beforehand.

This is all backed up by their proficient nail techs at the salon, who we’ve observed to be accurate and precise with their work, along with supplying aftercare tips to keep the nails in good shape.

There’s some room for improvement though. Some of the gels they use for the polish aren’t as durable, lasting exactly two weeks before needing a retouch.

Additionally, some clients did report waiting a couple of minutes before they were able to get someone on the phone. We think the salon could be a bit more responsive with these calls.

Overall, N.Bar is a reliable choice for getting one’s nails done in Dubai. We recommend booking an appointment for those looking for a relaxing time and accurate results.


  • Wide variety of polishes and treatments
  • Highly trained nail techs


  • Takes a while to respond to phone inquiries
  • Some nail polish colors aren’t as durable

With a location at the Jumeirah Beach Residence, We Nails is a beauty salon that focuses on two things– nail care and hair styling. Originally established in 2015, We Nails has since become a trusted and reputable salon in the industry.

The salon itself offers a wide variety of services, including various nail care and extensions alongside cosmetic services, like hair styling and makeup. Wellness services are also available in the form of massages. 

We Nails has a rather relaxed ambiance, which we see as a plus for salons– the interior is clean, with brick-patterned walls offset with hanging shrubs to add some color to the modern, minimalist space.

The nail polish and hair dye colors on offer are also vast in number, so any sort of design can be accommodated by the staff as long as the salon is properly consulted beforehand.

Colors aren’t the only thing they’re willing to accommodate, either, as other special requirements can also be taken into account. If a customer has a sensitivity, that is taken into account with their treatment.

Some customers do report needing to retouch the lighter colors a bit faster though, requiring additional visits. Those who need longer-lasting finishes may want to opt for the darker colors in our opinion. 

The rates are a bit more expensive too; something budget buyers may want to keep in mind.

With its soothing ambiance, transparent price list and quality services, we would definitely still recommend We Nails as a reliable salon to go to for all of your nail styling needs. 


  • Relaxing and comfortable ambiance
  • Good selection of designs


  • Rates are quite pricey
  • Could use a bit more finesse in acrylic nail application

The Nail Spa is one of Dubai’s leading beauty salons, especially in the nail care market. WIth over ten locations established all over Dubai and a few more in other areas in the UAE, it is definitely a household name. 

The Nail Spa also boasts an extensive list of services, from the classic manicures and pedicures to extensions and nail art. The salon offers soak off services for ease of removal of nail extensions alongside in-chair add-ons for relaxation. 

Upon entering the salon, we found its interior to be clean– especially so with its white color scheme touched up with bits of purple. The actual equipment appeared to be well-maintained and kept neatly. 

One particular quirk that the salon has is the ability to book multiple treatments all in one visit, which is perfect for any customer on-the-go or for those with tighter schedules, as it is very convenient. 

The services also come at reasonable rates and are carried out within good and established time frames, usually taking anywhere from 40 minutes to just 50 minutes for a combo manicure-pedicure. 

With that in mind, customers should also be aware of the strict scheduling at the salon, both with the time and the services booked. Once a service is booked, it’s locked in, so customers should decide carefully. 

All in all, we would definitely recommend The Nail Spa as a reliable source for nail care. Their website and staff have helpful notes and tips on how to prepare for treatments, making it perfect for beginners. 


  • Good for taking multiple treatments at a time
  • Impressive salon environment


  • Limited color selection for nail polish
  • Very strict scheduling

Customer Reviews

The NStyle Beauty Lounge has become a leading name in the salon industry, providing various grooming and beauty services to various areas ever since its establishment in 2001. The salon is even home to its very own nail polish and beauty line. 

NStyle offers a wide variety of beauty services, especially with their nail care and extensions. They even offer gel and acrylic refills and overlays, helping to maintain their shapes along with strengthening the natural nail underneath. 

The salon area itself is neat and well-organized, and the equipment is well-maintained. The white interior is broken up in places by the glass display shelves housing their beauty products, adding a touch of color to the bright area.

The service at the front desk is worth noting for their welcoming and approachable vibe, as well as their prompt assistance and accommodation for any customer that walks in through the door. 

On the other hand, we think they could extend this proactive approach to the phone though. A few clients we’ve spoken to did report waiting a couple of minutes before getting their questions answered.

With regards to the treatments and services themselves, the nail techs and staff offer ample guidance and suggestions. Customers have also mentioned their accuracy with making their requested nail designs. 

In our opinion, the treatments can take rather long to finish so customers will want to keep their schedules open. We think it’s good time spent though in exchange for nicely done nails.

Overall, the NStyle Beauty Lounge is a solid, reliable pick for a nail salon to visit for an accurate and comfortable nail care routine– or, other beauty and cosmetic-related services, if needed. 


  • Great attention to detail
  • Well-maintained salon and great ambiance


  • Treatments tend to take long to finish
  • Could be a bit more proactive on the phone

Customer Reviews

Nail Candy is a beauty salon specializing in various beauty services and nail care. With its own host of organic beauty products and cosmetics and a location at the Dubai Marina, the salon is known for their wide range of treatments and good rates. 

The salon’s range of services span a good amount of treatments, not necessarily limited to just nail care and extensions. These include facials and cosmetic services like eyelash extensions and eyebrow threading and tinting. 

Nail Candy’s salon is minimalist in its design, with just clean white walls and shelves displaying their products. The complimentary refreshments offered help to make a soothing atmosphere for customers coming in to get their nails done. 

The service itself has been noted to be surprisingly fast, all the while retaining the accuracy of the design or colors requested. We found this useful for customers hoping for a quick look. 

However, we did find that the color selection when it comes to polish isn’t the most varied. Some clients have mentioned not getting a particular color they want for their nails.

This is all backed by the salon’s reasonable prices, especially considering their location at the Dubai Marina. The rates at the salon have been noted to be competitive, which is a plus considering the wide variety of services.

On the other hand, the salon can be a bit strict on appointments though. Some clients have reported waiting a while before they can truly finalize their schedules. 

All in all, we would recommend Nail Candy as a nail salon for the customer on the go– for quick service, good design, all at a competitive price. 


  • Rates are very cost-effective
  • Very prompt and fast service


  • Limited polish colors
  • Takes some time to reschedule and finalize appointments
