Never underestimate the power of a manicure.
For what you pay, getting your nails did is one of the most worthwhile beauty treatments, returning high dividends in both the compliments and mood-lifting department.
FACT: A bit of cuticle care and colour is the quickest way to make yourself instantly look polished and put-together even when you’re not feeling so flash.
We continue our enabling by leaving this most-useful list of Sydney’s Top Nail Salons (as voted by you guys!) right here where you can see it. Your move.
1/80 Queen St, Woollahra NSW 2025 | (02) 9363 3662
Situated in the chic, tree-lined suburb of Woollahra in Sydney’s east is Jocelyn Petroni, the eponymous beauty space of one of the country’s most celebrated facialists and sought-after skin experts. What you might not know is that Petroni is equally adept at nails – appointed CHANEL’s official nail expert in Australia in 2015. Go to her the highest-calibre manicure, knowledge beyond compare, a second-to-none team and the latest season CHANEL Le Vernis nail shades before they even hit counters.
The Parlour Room
216 Clovelly Rd, Randwick NSW 2031 | (02) 9665 9989
It’s been over four years since Natalie Papadopoulos opened the doors of her beauty space, The Parlour Room. Since then, it’s established itself as a go-to destination for excellent manicures among other beauty treatments and is frequented by high-profile personalities and locals alike. The salon is currently being expanded to accommodate its growing customer base, with renovations to include a dedicated Nail Lounge. “It will be triple the size!” says Papdopoulos. Excited? Just a bit.
Le Laque Boutique
13/5 Brodie Spark Dr, Wolli Creek NSW 2205 | (02) 8068 0649
Le Laque Boutique is a something of local secret and a memorable discovery for those that come from outside of town. Located in gentrified Wolli Creek in Sydney’s south, among bustling modern apartments, this boutique nail salon offers a reprieve from the daily grind. With dangerously comfortable armchairs fit for “King Louie”, high-quality salon-grade polishes, 10 years of experience in the nail game, and a professional team called “the best in the biz” by loyal clientele, finding it difficult to leave this place is totally normal.
Mobile nail salon, Sydney and Melbourne | (02) 8033 8887
Founder and CEO of Purely Polished Iman Davamoni launched her business after finding it difficult to attend—and make time for—beauty appointments as a busy first-time mother. Since its conception, Purely Polished has grown from being a mobile manicure and pedicure business, to now servicing birthday parties, corporate events, and more. Designed to give you a professional, salon-quality nail treatment in the comfort of your own home or even, we can personally vouch for the divine Deluxe Pedicure. Relaxation at its absolute best.
1 Reddan Ave, Penrith NSW 2750 | 0404 045 258
Sought-after nail stylist Skye Mcintyre received A LOT of love when we posted our call out for Sydney’s Top Nail Salons. The self-made talent is an official CND Shellac Nail Education Ambassador with a career spanning Fashion Week, magazine editorials, celebrity clientele as well as running her own business – a quaint nail studio in Sydney’s western suburb of Penrith. Many of her clients travel the distance to see her because they simply don’t trust their nails in anyone else’s hands. If that doesn’t speak volumes, we don’t know what does.
Miss Thang Nails
Keith Street, Middleton Grange NSW 2171 | 0400 441 898
Miss Thang Nails is run by the delightful Lynda Taing, a nail artist in every sense of the word. Having studied all aspects of beauty from makeup to skin, she discovered her true passion in nail art while working backstage at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and at Beauty Expos. Her specialty, hand-painting, has garnered her return clientele who sing the praises of her quality products, creative flair and intricacy.
Please note: Miss Thang Nails is currently on maternity leave.
