Finding the right nail salon is a practical decision. Your nail salon needs to be close to home, provide you with quality services, and be a comfortable one, considering you will most likely find yourself there every four weeks. Whether you have a marble manicure in mind or a de-tanning pedicure after your beach holiday, it should be able to offer every kind of service. If you are looking to find the perfect nail bar or need a change, our edit of the six nail salons in Mumbai with the best services—from a spa pedicure to acrylic nails and fancy nail paints—will get the ball rolling.

Nail salons Mumba

Glory Salon

It’s a cardinal sin to speak about manicures in Mumbai without mentioning Glory Salon, the original nail art haunt in Mumbai. It was one of the first to introduce the concept of nail art – from French manicures to chrome nails, diamond studs and everything in between – to the city. While the flagship salon is now over a decade old, they have multiple branches now. Not only have their loyalists stayed true to them, their client list is on the rise as well.

The White Door – A Bespoke Nail & Beauty Experience

One of the newest nail salons and beauty spas in the city, The White Door provides you with some of the most luxurious experiences possible. There is the anti-ageing pedicure that uses a rose hydrating mask while the Fatigue Fix mani-pedi destresses and relaxes you. While they have an impressive list of manicures, pedicures, nail extensions, and art options, and each service comes with a side of coffee, cookies, and an iPad so you can really Netflix and chill.  They even have membership packages with special deals and discounts. And a gold manicure – give or take.

Tip & Toe The Nail Club

This nail salon has slowly and steadily become a popular spot for all kinds of nail services, thanks to its impressive roster of Bollywood celebrities, especially the Pali Hill salon. From Kareena Kapoor Khan to Malaika Arora, quite a few of the industry’s leading ladies are spotted here, making it a common spot for the paparazzi too. Their services go the usual route of nail extensions, nail spa, nail enhancements like gel nails to overlays alongside nail repairs and refills.

Jean-Claude Biguine

If you’re looking for nail services that are a class apart, head over to your nearest Jean-Claude Biguine Salon & Spa; there’s 14 of them spread across the city. The French salon chain makes use of premium products with internationally-trained therapists who will make sure your gel manicure or spa pedicure sees you through the month, intact. From bling to glitter and heaps of stunning shades from OPI, their service as exclusive as it gets.

Spa

Nail Spa Experience

Staying true to its name, this chain of nail salons located all over Mumbai offers you everything from a unicorn manicure to an ice-cream pedicure that uses pretty cute products and fun ingredients. We also heard about their very popular Candle Therapy that works with a blend of jojoba oil, cocoa butter and Vitamin E. The candle is lit and allowed to melt, this is then poured onto the skin for a warm soothing skin treatment. Have an Instagram #nailfie as a reference? Take it along and they’ll replicate it for you.

Paintbox

if you’re someone who prefers taking a time-out in a calm, relaxed atmosphere with just a handful of people around, you will love this nail salon. Located in a quaint lane off Carter Road, their roster of nail services includes gel and acrylic sets, French manicures, nail art, and of course, traditional mani-pedis and experts here execute each brilliantly. If you’re not able to make it to the salon for some reason and live in the Khar-Bandra vicinity, they’ll even send their technicians home. What’s not to love?

Anjan Sachar

While Anjan’s week is made up of writing and talking about everything from glycolic acid to the best new red lipstick, the weekends are spent testing them all, with Gossip Girl reruns on the side. When she isn’t reviewing a new face mask, you’ll find her sipping on mimosas with a side of truffle fries. Her daily essentials: Iced latte with a side of J Balvin and Prateek Kuhad.
