Mani Pedi in Mt. Oliver

Select Local Merchants

It’s too bad that nails aren’t actually edible, because the pink and purple designs on display at South Side Nail Candy look positively delicious. The salon’s new location sets a relaxing tone with its plush princess pedicure thrones, which nicely counterbalance the feisty leopard and cheetah prints that accent the front room’s décor. More than just a place for mani-pedis, South Side Nail Candy also offers airbrush spray tans that infuse skin with UV-free color and waxing services that swiftly remove hair or turn the body into a giant, wickless candle.

Q&A with the Manager

The sweet irony of becoming a stylist is that no matter how good you are, you can never give yourself a haircut. What do you look for in a stylist when you need a trim?

Good listening skills and the ability to follow directions are two qualities a stylist must have. Each customer is different, and to make sure the customer is happy, a stylist has to understand what the client wants. Building a good connection helps the stylist reflect the customer's personality.
