Manicures & Spas

Manicures & Spas

It's Manicure Monday and I want to participate finally. In today's post, I am wearing Gelish Polish which is similar to shellac in the USA. The spa that I frequent in Abu Dhabi introduced me to Gelish because the regular polish chips so easily therefore this was my savior. Nothing says ugly and tacky like chipped nail polish. shudders and faints. Gelish application is a longer process than standard polish but I love it because it lasts a solid two weeks and typically without chipping.

The color above is Black Shadow and if I remember correctly, the polish below is  Red Roses.

Going to the spa and an absolute must for me. In the State, here, and worldwide, proper pampering is just relaxing. I typically get full treatments; manicure, pedicure, massage, threading/waxing as well as facials. My favorite spa in Abu Dhabi is Tips & Toes and the spa at St. Regis Resort on Saadiyat Island. It feels swell to spend the afternoon sipping Green Chai and having life's oddities melted away. I must admit that I prefer the private sessions the St. Regis Resort offers to the mass process room at Tips &Toes but Tips & Toes is convenient and budget friendly. Above is a station from the Marina Mall location. The chair is quite comfortable as it reclines which allows for multi-services; facial, mani, and pedi at once. 

Below, more mani and spa photos:

Tell me about your manicures and what you like best about days at the spa.

That spa looks glorious....I would be the crazy lady that will never leave. I need to take pictures of my nails I just did something to them so I can link up.

your polish is perfect! I don't get to go often but when I do, I love the serenity- I get to get away and just me "Sunny" for a bit.

I still haven't tried shellac and I must say it's been a while since I've been to the spa. I think I'm overdue for a visit! I'm loving the red and black nails, lady!
