Trophy Wife Nail Art
After years of doing nails as a side hustle, Chelsea Bagan founded her own salon in 2010. While you can get classic manicures here, the main draw is the range of detailed nail art you can get on your digits. Chelsea and her team can do anything from delicate constellations and glittery animal prints to microscopic strawberries and detailed lettering. Choose from existing patterns or come up with your own unique and Insta-worthy design.
Awarded the world’s Best Beauty Salon at the World Spa Awards in 2019, Miss Fox was designed with glamourous intentions in mind. This Hollywood-esque day spa and beauty salon is located in the hustle and bustle of Melbourne’s CBD on Little Collins Street. It’s a fair bit more expensive than the other salons on this list, with manicures starting at the $85 mark and increasing in price depending on the polish you choose. But if you’re feeling luxe and want to treat yourself, this salon will guarantee you walk out feeling like a movie star.
Where: The Nail Lab Darlinghurst
Why: Located in the heart of Sydney's CBD it's as convenient as it is classy. Their classic polish change always does the trick, but it's the Luxury Manicure (a 60 minute treatment complete with an exfoliating gommage hand treatment) that keeps us coming back.
Book your treatment by visiting Vivid Nail Salon
Why: If you're after a little luxury (and honestly, who isn't at the moment), pay a visit to Petroni's lavish Woolahra salon. The Custom-Blend Manicure (where two shades are blended to create the ideal nude for your skin tone) is a favourite of ours.
