“All women should get their nails done, you need to feel pampered,” Valeria my beauty therapist tells me. And she’s right. We all are well aware of the hectic lives women lead, so spending an hour getting a great manicure is as much about getting pretty extremities as it is about doing something nice for yourself! We headed to Dream Nails at Fourways Mall to for some quality ‘me’ time.
Sitting at the nail station, I’m offered a hot drink while I decide on what colour I want. The TV display above me is showing all sorts of creative nail designs that other clients have had and I’m feeling inspired. Valeria tells me that in winter all the red shades are very popular, while a classic nude never goes out of style. I’m in the mood for something little different, so I opt for purple and gold.
While Valeria carefully applies the polish (a base layer, 3 layers of colour and a top coat) she informs me on how to keep my new manicure in top condition. Winter in Fourways is dry so keeping nails and cuticles moisturised is a must. Using a cuticle oil and Vitamin Dose on the nails will keep them tip top. A good set of gelish nails should last between 3- 4 weeks while tips and acrylic nails can last up to 6 weeks.

The nail stations are neat and clean, utensils are also sanitized. The therapists are friendly and informative and most importantly give a great mani!
