Five Nail Salons I Need To Try


I don’t want to do my own nails anymore!

The thing is, although I own a lot of polish (mostly drugstore stuff in varying colours), I don’t have the patience to sit down, try and steady my non-dominant hand, and get the job done. I just don’t.

This revelation has me thinking that a good nail salon, in my neighbourhood or not, is the answer. So just as some people hunt for the best hair salon or the perfect bra, I’m looking for that perfect nail salon that will suit me just right.

Looking in Toronto seemed like a good place to start.

My must haves for a nail salon is simple:

  1. Clean.
  2. Friendly staff.
  3. A decent selection of classic colours (reds, blues, purples, greens, pinks, and neutrals too).
  4. No long waits.
  5. Maybe a chatty nail stylist (because I don’t mind talking).

Honestly, none of these places are in my neighbourhood but, for good nails, I’m willing to travel for as long and far as it takes. Here’s my short list of Toronto nail salon’s to try:

1. Deco De Mode Toronto – Yorkville

112 Scollard Street Toronto, ON M5R 1G2


2. Nails Queen – Queen West

422 Queen Street W Toronto, ON M5V 2A7


3. LK Nails – Yorkville

Cumberland Terrace, 2 Bloor St W Unit C0, Toronto, ON M4W 3E2


4. Get Gelled Manicure Bar – Downtown Core

12 Irwin Avenue Toronto, ON M4Y 1K9


5. Tina Pro Nails – East York

927 Pape Ave, East York, ON M4K 3V4


Do you get your nails done? What do you think about shelling out the money, for that service, every month?
