Nail varnish is fine here, There is a time and place for all those things. Around your compound (If you choose wisely ie no locals) and at night in bars and clubs some restaurants you are fine. You just don't do it in public areas, walking along the corniche in a boob tube and hotpants is asking for trouble, but still doesn't stop some of the flips doing it.

Was thinking that...........What does AD have that Doha doesn't?? I found **** all to do there except get pissed. I once had to babysit a child for the day and could think of nothing to do except buy it toys and feed it before taking said child to the pub and learning that you cannot give 6 year olds Redbull.

What is exactly horrible about it?

Surely it cannot be as bad as Saudi?
