The Best Nail Salons In Brisbane

The Best Nail Salons In Brisbane

Nailed it!

By Hayley Hinze | 7th October 2020

Everything is better when your nails are well done! From tapping on your keyboard to pointing over there, you’ll feel on top of the world. That is until they’re chipped, short or just not in their finest hour – you may not notice ‘til it’s too late, and they’ve ruined your engagement ring photo or wine-in-hand shot. That’s why we’re giving you a hand in finding Brisbane’s best nail salons!

Brooklyn Beauty Bar | Fortitude Valley & Petrie Terrace

For more than just your average manicure, this salon combines a beauty salon with a bar. This unlikely pair means you can sip on a specialty gin, champagne or cocktail (or two!) while your nails are transformed. Services range from an express mani or pedi, right through to full PolyGel and acrylic sets. Or if you’re prone to breaking a nail, try the BuilderMani for added flexibility and durability.

Ella Baché | Various Locations

A manicure isn’t typically a spa treatment, but Ella Baché has made it one. They keep it simple with one manicure and one pedicure option, both offering up to an hour of pure bliss. Give your nails and hands some loving with a manicure featuring nail shaping, cuticle care, exfoliation, a hand massage and polish application. If you’re after a spa-like experience with a simple and natural look, this is the place for you.

Jeanette Thomas Nail Studio | New Farm

The imaginative designs of industry expert Jeanette Thomas and her team of technicians are a step above the ordinary. We love the thoughtful use of bright colours, making these designs fun and chic. What’s better is they offer a range of manicure options with varying lengths, prices and features, so it’s all up to you!

Kitten Claws Parlour | Hendra

Amazing nail art – that’s all we need to say. Kitten Claws creates cool prints, patterns and designs that look like they belong in an art gallery, and are bound to stand out in a sea of French manicures. Choose from extensions, ombré and stunning feature nails, or opt for a deluxe manicure to encourage nail growth. They even house an exclusive acrylic-style formula, Aprés Gel-X, that offers quality soft gel extensions that your natural nails will thank you for. Or, get the salon look at home with their range of custom and pre-made press on nails.

Liquid Nail Bar | Brisbane City

Treat your talons to the fun designs of this inner-city salon. Their services include crowd favourites shellac and acrylics, but if you’re after a quick pamper while you’re there, almost all services can be paired with an express manicure. Appointments aren’t necessary so there’s every excuse to squeeze a mani into your week.

ProfessioNAIL | Various Locations

With salons scattered all around the city, we’re beginning to think there’s more ProfessioNAIL’s in Brisbane than there are Sunday picnics at New Farm Park. You’ll find the usual suspects including acrylics, gel nails and nail art at every salon, with totally customisable shapes and designs. Whether you’re after a fun statement design or a more neutral classic look, you’ll leave with beautiful and long-lasting nails.

The ‘Exotic Spa Manicure’ takes nail care to a whole other level, offering what can only be described as a holistic manicure experience. Imagine an hour of hand pampering, with a rose petal exfoliation, luxury massage, warm Paraffin hydration, and professional polish to finish it all off. You can even bring along some gal pals for a spa group manicure!
