Fancy Nails

I am sure you were all super, duper concerned with my recent post about the abysmal state of my nails…

Well, you can all breath a huge sigh of relief because I got a mani, pedi AND an eyebrow wax at Fancy Nails on Hillhurst in Los Feliz today!


All is right with the world…

I think Fancy Nails might actually be my new nail place… Which is great because I don’t feel at home anywhere until I:

  1. Have a gym.
  2. Have a nail spot.

So maybe I actually live in L.A. now? An exciting thought.

Here are the Fancy Nails deets: It’s super cute and very clean, which is obviously important in a nail salon. The women who work there are nice too. Although, I would not recommend this spot if you’re in a hurry. I had an appointment, and I still had to wait a few minutes. It was no biggie, but it’s just not an in-and-out place like my beloved nail spot in Chicago.

The owner did my nails and my wax. I wish I could remember her name! She was super sweet and obsessively thorough, which is so, so, so important to me. I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my nails and brows, and I nitpick over anything that’s done wrong. For me to come away with zero complaints is pretty huge.

Oh wait. I actually have two complaints:

  1. They don’t take credit cards, which is annoying. I had to run across the street to the ATM, because seriously. Who carries cash?
  2. Their nail polish section kind of blows. I was able to find a cute, pink OPI shade, but overall it’s pretty bad.

So, L.A. ladies, have you been to Fancy Nails? What did you think?

And if not, where is your nail spot?
