Hands up!

By Style Beauty Journo | 7th March 2022

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 by then they’ve ruined your engagement ring photo or wine-in-hand shot. Not cute. 

To turn your talons into the talk of the town, we’re giving you a hand in finding some of the best Brisbane nail salons! Whether you’re a fan of acrylics, shellac, or Builder in a Bottle (nail biters, we’re looking at you), these nail technicians will have you waving your fingers in everyone’s faces in no time. 

Did we miss someone from the list? Let us know here!

A - Z

Brooklyn Beauty Bar

Fortitude Valley

For more than just your average manicure, enjoy a luxury service in a beautiful bar. This match made in heaven 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, so your nails can really go the length.


Venom Nail Bar

Fortitude Valley

An up-and-comer who’s really making her mark, Ariel Morrissey’s Venom Nail Bar is the home of fun and funky nail art that will have every passerby asking where you got them done. Health is wealth and that goes for your nails, which is why Venom only uses Gel X and BIAB so your manicure will be chip-free and stunning for a long time to come. With her brand-spanking new salon now open, book quick because she’s a busy bee!

Kitten Claws Parlour


Stand out in a sea of French manicures with the eye-catching work of this globally renowned nail salon! No design is too far-fetched when it’s done by the Kitten Claws crew, with advanced nail art as their specialty.

If there was an award for the prettiest nail salon, Gloss Nail Lounge would take the cake. A visit to this vegan and cruelty-free salon is the definition of a ‘treat yourself’, with BIAB, acrylic, and SNS services, as well as leg and foot masks for the ultimate rejuvenation. Honestly, the gorgeous swing at the entrance of the salon is worth a visit alone!
