Whether you’ve got a hot date coming up, a wedding, a party or it’s just a typical Tuesday afternoon, there’s no better feeling than getting a little pampered and beautified. And while YouTube gurus have this nail art thing down to a science, D.I.Y. is harder than it looks!
Here is a list of seven amazing nail salons around the city that will have you looking sharp without the deadly claws.
Pinky’s Nails is run by four talented artists. Gel extensions, acrylic, and even fiberglass nail extensions all serve as canvas for tiny pieces of art, but that’s not all. Pinky’s have also introduced their own line of press on nails for photoshoot or for just a fancy night out.
Tips Nail Bar
Trendy and fashion forward, Tips Nail Bar specializes in clean lines and sharp Shellac manicures and pedicures. They’ve been featured in a number of magazines and are often the nail team behind runway shows. If unique and clean nail designs are what you’re looking for, Tips Nail Bar is for you.
With prices starting at $15 for a full manicure, you can’t go wrong with Cozy Nails (and they also serve smoothies!). Cozy Nails specializes in packages, for example the “Look Gorgeous” package which offers a full manicure and full facial, as well as a Men’s special; a cuticle clean up designed specific for the boys.
The Ten Spot
Well known for their waxing servies, The Ten Spot also offers up a full manicure bar for those looking to get their tips fixed. A pretty basic menu of polish and gel options make the Ten Spot ideal for those looking to get their cuticles cleaned or are simply looking for a colour swap.
Urban Nails is the ideal destination for Toronto nail parties. Whether you’re hosting a bridal shower or just looking to grab all your ladies (and gents) for a fun day out of the office, Urban Nails will book the entire salon just for you all at no extra cost, just pay for your services.
Polish’d Nail Bar
If you’ve never seen Polish’d Nail Bar while strolling the downtown core, it’s mainly because this nail salon is underneath the city in the PATH. You can walk in and get a manicure in under 30 minutes, or spend a little more time and get a UV gel manicure.
With over 300 different DGel colours to choose from, Get Gelled should become your new destination for gel nails. Their manicurist can do as you request, whether that’s a basic gel manicure lasting upward of 14 days, or something a bit more eccentric. For an additional few bucks, they can add some drama.
