We all know there is no shortage of Nail Salons in the UAE but none quite like SOH a new concept salon that specialises in some mad nail artwork but thats not where the fun stops the salon actually doubles an art gallery with all art display pieces saleable and available to the public. Much like a gallery the collection is on rotation so not only do the nail designs change but so to the artwork.
The salon has a real downtown New York cool vibe with its white washed brick walls plastic chairs and marble accents the artists prints provide a pop of colour whilst trendy hipster music is playing and the staff are dressed in basketball jersey's donning hand painted converse - it definitely doesn't have that stifling feel of a normal salon being in a league completely of it's own.
Soh does a regular mani pedi no problem and pretty much any other treatments your used to but it would be criminal not to at least try what they specialise in which is Japanese mani's you only need to scroll below to the nail wall to get a feel of whats on offer . If your daring you can adorn you nails with everything from the Dubai skyline to cupcakes or superheroes to pizza slices. but if you want to avoid coming off too comic strip and save you some $ you could do what I did and choose a nail accent which is just one nail. It is really incredibly fun and amazing just to watch the different techniques I mean these guys are using real tools and paint palettes on a canvas as small as a nail something has to be said for that.
