A Bride’s ‘Me Time’ @ Tips and Toes
It had been a while since my last visit to any of the Tips n Toes branches. By a while, I mean three years! Upon entering my favourite branch in Abu Dhabi on Khaleej Al Arabi street., the feelings of both nostalgia and comfort came over me. I had missed the immediate ‘zen’ feel from the combination of warm interior décor, the peace and quiet (a policy all branches implement strictly) and the warm greeting with a smile.
The salons offer a range of services, from a quick 15 minute polish designed for those short on time, through to the more indulgent Luxury Manicure or Pedicure. Also, a variety of massages and body treatments including waxing, threading and facials. There is a large choice of Nail Art, and even Swarovski crystals for those wanting to really make an impact. I opted for two different treatments I knew brides would probably go for, the almond milk pedicure treatment and the gellish manicure.
I would like to add that Tips and Toes salons have the best seating available in the UAE! If you have paid a visit to any of their branches, you will know what I am referring to. Rather than be placed on a rigid leather sofa, all clients are sat in a large wooden armchair with cushions that you can literally sink into. The perfect de-stress element for any bride who is feeling the pressure. Add a head, neck and shoulder massage on top of that, and you are ready to take on the world!
The technicians knew exactly what they were doing, always making sure that I was satisfied with the bathing, cleaning and nourishing procedures. I left smelling fresh and feeling relaxed.
I would recommend this place to any bride-to-be ready to pamper herself and more importantly experience a stress free environment- that means mobile phones off, thank you very much.
