My favorite nail place in LA was Olive & June. A bright, beautifully decorated, welcoming space in Beverly Hills. When I moved back to Seattle, I really missed my experience there.
Ask and you shall receive: enter Juniper - A Natural Nail Bar in West Seattle. (Which I've personally dubbed as the California of Seattle). And I would describe the space as nothing short of everything I was missing: bright, beautiful, welcoming.
It feels like you're getting your nails done in your living room. Big comfy chairs, refreshments of your choice, friendly service.
The owner, Tiann, started out about a mile away as the owner of Flourish Beauty salon and spa. Rumor has it, her clients kept telling her she needed to open a nail salon as well...so she did. (Get it girl).
What makes Juniper different is that it's all natural, handmade local in La Conner, WA. No acetone, no formaldehyde, no worries.
Enough me talking about it. Go see for yourself. And don't tell anyone, but West Seattle is Seattle's up and coming neighborhood. So get in while you still can.
