A mani-pedi undoubtedly qualifies as an essential act of self-love. 

Perhaps you are looking for a quick nail repair and removal job. Or maybe you have the time for more indulgent nail treatments and standout designs. Just know that you are in safe hands—pun intended—with our edit of the best nail salons in Dubai. Repeat after us: nail care is self-care.

LALOGE Beauty Lounge

What would it be like to get whisked away to Beverly Hills and get your nails done next to a rising star? LALOGE Beauty Lounge has the answer as one of the finest luxury nail spas in Dubai, favored by the city’s elite. As you head towards the separate section for nail treatments, styling chairs by Fendi Casa and crystal chandeliers will light the way. Once you have settled in, sip on a cappuccino while you idly choose from their expansive range of nail glitter. Then, coax your senses into a deeper sense of tranquility with add-on services, such as foot scrubbing.
