Have ever your left your nail salon feeling like they rushed right through your service or sat there wondering if the tools they just used were even sanitized? Well, I recently discovered, Van Court Studio, a new type of nail salon in the Financial District of NYC, offering healthy guilt-free manicures and pedicures that will erase all doubts.
In the past, I would judge a manicure by how long my polish lasted without chipping, and soon realized that a great manicure goes far beyond that. Of course you want your polish to last, but a nail service should be about the full experience. From the moment you walk you into the salon, it should be welcoming and relaxing.
That was definitely the experience I had at Van Court, everything from the decor to the staff was so inviting. When I spoke with the owner, Ruth Kallens, about why she decided to open her fabulous nail salon, she simply stated.that most salons weren’t very good. She wanted her salon to be a step above the rest.
With quality and talented nail artists, a super clean environment, and a thoughtful curation, of 5, 7 or 9 free lacquers, she has clearly succeeded. All of Van Court’s creams and oils are natural and when possible, organic. Keeping your health in mind, their manicures are water less with minimal cuticle nipping. Van Court offers a bespoke menu, to give you a one of a kid experience tailored the needs of your hands and feet!
When in NYC, stop in for pedi, mani or both and be sure to mention that Busy Wife sent you!
