If you’re after something a little more thorough than the usual file and polish, 5 Nails Bar offers the ultimate pampering. The speciality at this newly opened nail salon is coffee scrubs, where they cleanse, buff and rejuvenate lacklustre skin for a smooth and soft finish before treating yourself to a luxurious mani or pedi.

5 Nails Bar, King Abdulaziz Road, Al Murjan, P423+HX, daily 2pm to 10pm. Tel: 055 227 1212. @5nailsbar
