‘I’m a little bit tired’: The day after her first day of a manicure

When it comes to manicures, I am a little tired.

I have had some pretty bad ones, I’m not a fan of my nails, and I hate the smell of a freshly manicured nail.

But I’ve got a little thing in the bag that I’m going to try.

It’s a nail art app called Dab.

I know this is kind of a big deal because I have always wanted to try it and I’m always on the hunt for a manicurist who would take me to the nail salon for a new manicure, so I’ve been a bit of a sucker. 

In the past I’ve had my nails done by some of the best manicurists in Australia, including the founder of Dab and a fellow nail artist, but I’ve never really tried Dab until now. 

I’m not saying that it’s not a fantastic experience and I have some really good friends that have been using Dab for years.

It also means I can get out and play around with my nails and have some nail art for the first time. 

It’s not my first time at a nail salon but I have to say that this one is really worth it. 

If you’re interested in a manicured manicure and don’t have time to visit a nail spa, you can book a consultation with a local nail salon, nail art salon, or even a salon near you. 

Here are a few things to consider when booking a manicuring appointment at a local salon: Where you go If your friend has booked a salon outside of Sydney, you might be better off travelling to that city to find out more about what the local salon offers.

It is important to book early because most nail salons do not open until 1:30am, so you might want to wait a few hours for your appointment to be over. 

Is the salon open? 

Most nail salonies have been booked out since the beginning of the year, but you can still book your appointment if you can find a local dentist who is open during the day and open at night. 

What time is the appointment? 

Some nail salamps will have appointments starting at 5:00am or 6:00pm.

Others will open at 2:00 am or 3:00 pm. 

Do I need to bring any cash? 

It is a good idea to bring cash to cover the costs of your appointment.

You might be able to get around this by bringing cash to an ATM at the salon, but some nail saloms will ask you to show a receipt for any excess cash you might have. 

Where to sit in line I had the pleasure of sitting in line at Dab when I booked my appointment with a friend, and the experience was fantastic.

There was no wait for a nail or the day before, and it was very busy and exciting. 

There are different locations at which you can sit in a line, but there is no reason why you shouldn’t go to one of the locations. 

Are there staff available? 


Dab is not staffed by a professional manicurant. 

When can I expect to see the manicure? 

You can see your appointment at any time of the day. 

Can I see my nails if I’m wearing a wig? 

If a manicurbist is not available, you will have to see your nails in person, as they are only available in a salon. 

How long will my manicure take? 

I was able to have my manicurings done in under 30 minutes and it took me about an hour and a half to get to the salon.

I will be happy to make a full estimate of the time it takes to do a manicura if you’re planning on having your nails done before the time that Dab provides. 

The experience at Dabs is fantastic.

I’ve heard good things about the app, so hopefully you will too! 

The Dab app is available for download at  https://www.dabs.com.au/  If I am looking for a local manicur, what is the best local nail saloon? 

There is a local one in the northern suburb of St Kilda, and there is a nail shop near the corner of Macquarie Street and Northland Street in the southern suburb of Wollongong.

What do you think about the experience at a locally run nail salon?

Have you tried Dabs?
