Best hygiene standards: Auum – The Honest Nail Spa
We were so impressed with Auum, we just had to include it on our list. Aside from top-notch hygiene SOPs (tools are disinfected and cured under UV light), this nail spa only carries 3- and 5-free polishes (meaning there are no nasties), plus other vegan-friendly products. It’s not called The Honest Nail Spa for nothing. The therapists are skilled and accredited, and they recommend only the services that your nails need.

Best inclusive services: Bellus de Charme
Muslim friends, you don’t have to miss out on all the pampering. At Bellus de Charme, the prayer-friendly ORLY (a halal-certified breathable nail polish) is available, so Muslimahs can do their wudhu, a pre-prayer water cleansing ritual, with ease.

Best nail art: The Nail Artelier
Nestled among indie designers and eateries around the eclectic Haji Lane area, art takes centre stage in the nail services here. Unlike other nail salons, there are no fixed designs, so the nail artists work to make your specific design a dream come true. Do book ahead, ’cause this place is always packed with bright, young things – another testament to the popularity of its gorgeous nail art.

Top on the menu Bastien’s Duo: A four-hand treatment involving two therapists who’ll restore a healthy shine to your nails and leave you feeling refreshed with a massage. We also recommend Bastien’s Pedicure, with buffing to return natural shine, a gentle treatment to remove skin irregularities and dryness, as well as a rubdown for calves and feet.
