If you're mad about manicures, you'll like this: WWD reports that Robbie Schaeffer (OPI founder George Schaeffer's son) and Daniel Schilleci have opened a 3,000-square-foot eco-friendly big-budget nail salon in the Los Angeles area. The idea is to banish the stereotypes that nail salons are dirty, unprofessional fungus-filled atmosphere.
It includes eight mani/pedi stations and four private rooms designed using eco-friendly materials. Also, it's decorated in a neutral palette to create a boutiquey, unisex feel.
Treatments include sanitizer-doused towels and new surgical-grade cleaned tools that will be used on you by one of the 16 extensively trained nail technicians.
The owners are so committed to providing excellent service that they will also be doling out services. Talk about rolling up your sleeves and being hands on. Manicures range from $18 to $65 and pedicures can cost anywhere from $40 to $70 depending on the type of treatment you choose.
The salon will carry OPI products and Murad skin-care products. If you live in the area or are planning a visit, get excited because the doors are due to open later this month.
