Take Nail Art to the Next Level
Written By: Danielle Gumina Making a Point with Extreme LA Nail Art
Nails can say a lot about who you are. A fresh manicure can connote cleanliness and simplicity. A bold coat can hint a wilder side. A manicure with a colorful approach can suggest a spontaneous character. Nails with intricate hand-painted designs can suggest a trendy and detail-oriented sense of style. It’s very likely that you see photos of #nailart all over Instagram now. Like interpreting first impressions, nail art provides an artistic platform for communicating something about you without uttering a word. We handpicked some great manicure salons in the Los Angeles area that are totally nailing it.
Tucked right inside the Melody Ehsani boutique on Fairfax, Kleur nail salon is a nail art collective consisting of four talented ladies who started out painting at public events.

In the past, Kleur has partnered with large well-known brands such as Urban Outfitters and Maybelline. For the ladies at Kleur, it is all about mixing fun colors and coming up with original artwork that stands out.

Gloss Nail Spa is a great place to check out if you are relatively new to the nail game. Give your fingertips a makeover with a fun design, such as holographic applicators that give your natural nails a really cool texture and an added boost. Gels are the most popular manicure service, probably because gels offer more for your dollar and in the long-run they also protect your nails from chipping too.
