Last weekend, I stumbled into the Nail Boutique at 729 Franklin Ave, Garden City. I like trying different nail salons (and there are a lot of nail spots in and near Garden City), so I decided to give it a try. I know most of you probably have a preferred nail salon, but I encourage you to explore the various options in and around Garden City. After all, isn’t that what Inside Garden City is all about?
I was immediately greeted with a smile by the new owner/manager, Yumi. She recently bought and renovated the Nail Boutique. Yumi is very friendly. I had a lovely time chatting with her. She makes you feel comfortable and welcome. She even helped me pick out my polish color. As far as the rest of the staff- they were very pleasant as well. The salon was busy- a good sign for sure- but not so busy that you feel like you’re a nuisance for disrupting their schedule when you walk in (I know you know what I’m talking about!). Here’s a look at some of the nail and waxing services they provide:
I was very impressed with the tool cleanliness at the Nail Boutique (which isn’t always the case). Each package of nail supplies was in a sealed pouch. The tools were completely sanitized- quite a necessity but not always done at every nail salon. Tsk tsk.
During the manicure, I got a shoulder and back massage (another thing a lot of nail salons skimp on these days). I don’t know if it’s just me, but sometimes I feel infinitely better and more relaxed after even just a 30 second neck massage. While I sat with my hands under the dryer, I was treated to another shoulder massage- short but sweet. On Mondays and Tuesdays, you can grab a deal steal- mani and pedi for just $24.
Overall, I found the Nail Boutique to be a sanitary and quality spot to get my nails done. I will be back for sure. My mani was flawless and the polish is still doing well, even on day four post-mani (and I wash my hands A LOT). But don’t take my word for it. Check it out for yourself and let us know what you think.
