It’s Monday and there’s no better day to get your claws pampered and preened for the week ahead. EW will bring to you our favourite shade to covet this week plus the salon to visit to get that must-have mani and pedi.

This week, EW’s Arezou puts N.Bar’s Essential Manicure to the test.

The salon:
Bright and mostly white, with a splash of raspberry on the walls and comfy leather chairs.

The popular salon is always busy, with nearly every chair filled, so be sure to book your treatment a few hours in advance.

The polish:
Really Red by Essie – A candy apple red that looks great with a summer tan.

Best for:
Girls on the go, with half an hour to spare.

How long did it last:
Despite a few polish chips, by day five our talons are still looking groomed and glossy.

Dhs70 for 30 minutes
