NAIL IT!
It’s time to sweeten up your manicure as Sisters Beauty Lounge has unveiled the latest kits from UK nail-care brand Ciaté – Sugar Caviar and Very Colourfoil. Salon application costs Dh10 per nail, or Dh60 for both hands. Alternatively, purchase home kits for Dh145. Visit www.sistersbeautylounge.com.

SUMMER FUN
If your little cherubs are driving you up the wall this summer, it’s time to get them out of the house. Book them into the summer camp offered by British Orchard Nursery, which has locations across the UAE. The camp has a variety of fun activities for children aged two to five. Timings are from 9am to 1pm and it will run until August 22. Prices start at Dh150 per day. For details call 04 398 3536.

ON THE WEB
Giving your pad a revamp? Don’t take another step without checking out www.desado.com, the Middle East’s first online destination for design items. As well as a platform for people to share their style inspirations and connect with the regional and international design community, this funky site allows visitors to buy fabulous home-decor pieces sourced from both fresh talents and established designers.

BEAT THE BUMPS
If you’re hoping to hit the beach when the weather cools, but are shy about your dimpled derrière, try Wacoal Beauty Secret Slim briefs. The active ingredients held in microcapsules in the fibres promise a similar effect to that of anti-cellulite creams. As well as slimming the figure and reducing fat, these wonder briefs redefine your shape and tone your skin. Available from K-Lynn stores, Beauty Secret Slim briefs cost Dh329 per pair.

HEALTH ALERT
If you’ve been fasting over Ramadan, it might be a good idea to invest in some vitamin supplements. While Muslims have previously been unable to enjoy the benefits of many vitamin brands due to their non-halal animal-source ingredients, NoorVitamins has been scientifically formulated so it can be halal certified. Special Ramadan discounts are available if you order through the www.treehuggercompany.com.
