Us Bali residents are truly blessed – any day can be a spa day! You can spend your entire day being massaged, scrubbed, rubbed with fragrant oils and being generously pampered in all ways imaginable. The only upsetting moment is…those who do live here permanently don’t really have time for spending a whole day in a spa! So when it comes to the beauty maintenance, we want to be in and out, in and out. Because you know, living in Bali demands all of your attention, on a daily basis – otherwise, something will go pear-shaped as soon as they cover your eyes with lavender-scented cooling pillow and purr ‘Enjoy!’


That’s why the opening of a place like The Nail Bar keeps us raving. It sits in the middle of a busy Dewi Sri street – on your way to AC Hardware, Carrefour and etc, which is very convenient. It’s a nail bar in the purest form: they care only about your finger- and toe-tips here. The ladies working here know what they are doing extremely well: you’ll be sporting your new shiny mani in no time! They can do some quirky designs too. And if you’re after cougar shapes, sparkles, diamonds and all that glitters – like those Indonesian beauty queens that favor this salon – you are in paradise. We always go for the short ones but who said you shouldn’t unleash your Rihanna and go all the way nail-ga-ga?

Check our gallery to see what they can do to your fingertips!
