Finding a good beauty salon that specializes in nail art in Dubai can be very challenging. Unlike cities such as Tokyo, London, or New York, where you’re spoilt for options when it comes to finding a cutting-edge nail tech, getting the next-level manicure of your dreams in the region is an onerous affair that requires lots of research (disappearing down nail art rabbit holes on TikTok), patience, and trial and error. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve taken in an inspo photo, only to leave my appointment with a manicure that looks little to nothing like the reference picture. And because it’s so difficult, a lot of times people tend to gate-keep their nail artists out of fear that they’d become too booked and busy or drive up their prices due to increasing demand. But here at MILLE, we don’t believe in withholding information, especially when it comes to something as pressing as your manicure. Below, six tested and true salons for nail art in Dubai if you’re seeking next-level claws.
