In Egypt, beauty salons come in all sizes. Some are tiny on the corner kind of salons and some are huge! Arciliques is a new salon specialised in nail care, so we gave it a try.
Acriliques is located El Nozha Street, Heliopolis. It is not a huge spa but it offer various services including wax, massage and of course nail services. As we entered Acriliques we were asked of the services we would like and we were seated after.
I noticed the Nail polish displays were well-kept and orderly organized according to color shades.Moreover, they were mostly international brands including: Essie, and other brands.
Let’s start out with the waxing, I was led to a frosted glass door leading to a small private room, which appeared clean but a little untidy. The beautician was experienced, she was able to pull the tiniest hair, Ouch!! Afterwards, a generous layer of baby oil was spread over my skin. As for the pricing it wasn’t cheap, I had my arms waxed for 60 LE.This is usually much cheaper in other beauty salons.
I wanted to try the pedicure. I was seated with a pedicure basin and relaxed as I dipped my feet in the warm water! My feet were scrubbed and massaged, and then my nails were perfectly shaped and painted.
Acriliques was a great experience, although some services seem a bit overpriced.
