Glaze Nail Bar's studio immediately asserts itself as a zone for the bold and modern. Light-blue and lime-green accents are juxtaposed against the industrial aesthetic of an exposed floor for a stark contrast. This setting, however, belies the aestheticians' preference for nature.

This attention to detail pervades everything on Glaze Nail Bar's service menu, which spans nailcare, facials, massages, and waxing. Aestheticians rely on a stock that contains many eco-friendly products, such as the Aveda skincare line and the formaldehyde- and DBP-free nail polishes of butter London. They also maintain a meticulously clean studio, sanitizing instruments in the same kind of high-temperature autoclaves found in hospitals, the dentist?s office, and the homes of professional taxidermists.
