7 best nail salons in Johor Bahru to pamper yourself with an affordable glow up


Prior to the lockdowns, I loved going to Johor Bahru (JB) regularly for my mani-pedis not only because of how affordable they are, but also because of the welcoming manicurists who will make recommendations and discuss nail designs with you just like your BFF. Some of them even go far and beyond and offer to bring you your favourite drinks while you get your nails done.

Being someone who is very particular about my manicures, I’ve done a fair bit of research to find out which nail salons in JB I can entrust my nails to.

Now that the borders have finally opened up, it’s time to become the baddie that you are from top to toe with these 7 best nail salons in Johor Bahru.

DifNails Art Studio has a very youthful and girly feel with many of their nail designs. They’ve also seemed to have mastered the art of creating bold animal-print designs without making it look tacky (which is quite a feat) so there’s no qualms about the craftsmanship here for sure. If you’re into a more cutesy style, slap on some acrylic bows and bubblegum-colours and you’re ready to go.
