Lauren Scales, Graffiti Nail Bar’s nail technician and owner, applies color and style to fingers and toes in her newly birthed salon. A basic manicure and pedicure treatment commences with cuticle maintenance before nails are shaped into square, rounded, or bunny-eared edges. The 60-minute pedicure grants barking dogs a paddle through a whirlpool tub, followed by a foot- and lower-leg exfoliation and massage. Choose from a profusion of OPI and Essie nail pigments, ranging in shade from natural to extraterrestrial-summoning. Alternatively, opt for a shellac manicure and pedicure. This persistent polish's powerful grip clings to nails for up to three weeks, depending on frequency of dish duty and tendencies to pick locks with agile pinky talons. Shellac mani-pedis last a luxurious 90 minutes, enough time to replay a full-length movie in one’s imagination.
Graffiti Nail Bar
Nail technician Lauren Scales loves beauty, but as a customer, she never found a salon she truly enjoyed. So she founded her own. Lauren’s first order of business? Build a place where customers can easily communicate their needs. Lauren was dissatisfied with the assembly-line-style pace she'd observed elsewhere because it made it nearly impossible to describe to the technician what you were looking for. At Graffiti Nail Bar, she makes sure to take the time to figure out what the client wants. This may be freehand nail-art portraits of Nikola Tesla, long-lasting gel or Shellac, patterned Minx designs, or simply a soothing mani-pedi made luxe by body butter. In fact, the butters, lotions, and soaps are all handmade by Lauren, are vegetable-based and free of synthetic oils, and are available for purchase in the in-house boutique that also offers earrings.
