So there we were, two longtime friends, gettin’ our nails done.
(Well, just one of us, but go with it for effect.)

We were chatting (OK, on the phone, on opposite ends of the country) and asked ourselves a question:
“If we were to dream up the most delicious nail salon experience either side of the Mississippi, what would it be like?”

So we created the nailsaloon.



We only use ‘5-free’ color, polishes without Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Resin or Camphor.
This also means no gels. No acrylics. No glues. No joke.


All our tools are single-use or have been medically autoclaved.
We could practice surgery with our clippers. Not that we would.


We keep our saloon smellin’ pretty by using high-tech source ventilation.
That means any smells near your nails are sucked up by vents as strong as a horse pullin’ a buggy.


No explanation needed, darlings.

We’re glad you’re here.

Come on in.

We like to keep it simple.
Our products? They’re always non-toxic.
Our tools? They’re always single-use or medically sanitized.
Our manis and pedis? They always include luxury add-ons.
We reckon’ simple is the new sophisticated.

And because we believe a saloon is a place to gather and imbibe in conversation,
we invite you to sit back, wet your whistle and properly calibrate your vocal chords with a complimentary beverage.

We believe in strong women, strong men… and in, of course, strong nails.
But our biggest belief is in strong communities.

We donate 3% of our daily profits
to organizations that promote
community empowerment in our neighborhoods.
Learn about who we’re helping, here.

And, we invite you to join us
by participating in S3, the saloon Support System.

Through partnerships with local organizations, S3 sponsors young women in need,
giving them free mani/pedis when they agree to be mentored by our clients, while both get their nails done.

You offer free mentoring, we offer free services to young mentees…and all of us win.
Learn about our partners, here.

Finally, we are committed to connecting our clients to additional mentorship opportunities beyond the ones we offer, so if you have a few hours to spare, reach out to our favorite mentorship matchmakers, here.

Interested in participating? Have questions?
Contact us here.
