Project Description

About Nailz + Beauty

Nailz + Beauty is a non-toxic, non-traditional beauty space dedicated to providing the highest quality of service to every client. We offer a wide range of services from nail, skin, massage, wax, brows, lash therapy, and add-on services while carrying a diversified product line in a clean, ventilated, sanitary environment. 

We are more than just a business providing a service. We're a part of our community, and we take care of the people who care for our community. 

Our goal and promise can be summed up in our motto: Nailz + Beauty will never compromise on quality for quantity.

Nailz + Beauty Mission

Nailz + Beauty delivers incomparable non-toxic beauty services that enhance our client’s physical appearance, well-being, and mental health in a sanitary, stress-free environment. Our clients will always be treated in a respectful professional manner to ensure that our service exceeds their expectations.

What makes Nailz + Beauty Different?

We are committed to providing non-toxic services, so we ensure our products are certified organic, vegan, cruelty-free. Our products do not contain harsh toxins such as formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate, camphor, and formaldehyde resins because we care about the wellbeing of our staff and community.

Our diverse staff recognizes that beauty comes in all forms. We provide a welcoming environment for our clients of any age, ethnicity, background, and gender to help every individual reach their beauty goals. 

Client satisfaction is key to the success of our business. We send an email after every appointment to ask for feedback to ensure clients are getting the service they expect and find ways to continually improve.

We respect our clients' time and our services by using appointment-only scheduling. Upon arriving, clients are seen at their exact appointment time and if a guaranteed wait time of 15 minutes is unavoidable, we notify our clients about the delay.

We take the time to listen to our clients and concerns. An example of this, we recently created a new service called a belly facial in honor of our expecting and postpartum mothers after hearing concerns from a pregnant client about itchy/dry skin, signs of hyperpigmentation, and stretchmark prevention. Currently, we're in the process of creating an underarm facial based on client feedback to address blackhead and hyperpigmentation concerns as a result from shaving.

Meet Our Team

Left to Right:

Heiki, Joy, Owner, Licensed Nail Artist and Esthetician

  • “I enjoy making clients feel relaxed, cared for, and beautiful. No matter the service or price- I will cater and listen to every need of my clients.”
  • She loves to share her story about how she started her business and giving other entrepreneurs insight. “Starting any business comes with challenges but as long as you fight, keep going, and listen to all feedback, the reward in the end will be that much greater.”
  • In her free time, “I enjoy relaxing, spending time with my greatest accomplishment-my son- and catching up on my favorite series.” ⠀

Nallely, Licensed Esthetician and Lash Artist

  • Her favorite service to perform are hybrid sets for lashes.
  • “I really like the whispy look and how I can either make them look natural or dramatic on my clients.”
  • In her free time: “I love to take trips to the mountains and explore scenic views."

Krystal, Licensed Nail Artist

  • Her favorite service to perform are services that incorporate art and beauty.
  • “My goal is to use my creative gift to enhance the natural beauty of each client through nail therapy and I enjoy seeing my clients smile from the inside with satisfaction.

Aberli, Licensed Nail Artist

  • Aberli is a 5 year cancer survivor hoping to better the lives of others.
  • "I have loved creating nail art since I was a kid, but my understanding and passion for nails came after I lost my own to chemo. After that, I realized that health and sanitation are some of the most important factors in the nail industry."
  • "My goal is to make all my clients feel important, taken care of, and to leave with healthier nails."

Tione, Licensed Massage Therapist

  • Her favorite service to perform is a deep tissue foot massage. 
  • “Most people tend to relax sooner when the feet are massaged early in the session. Oftentimes, they go to sleep right away.”
  • She loves the look of surprise of someone getting their first massage. “Most don't know what to expect, so they're unsure of the outcome. Making them comfortable allows them to relax. It allows me to relax the body and mind.”

What our Clients are saying:

I received services from Aberli. She was very thorough and had impeccable attention to detail! She talked me through every step and made sure I felt comfortable the entire time I was there. The space was clean and the COVID protocols made it feel like a really safe space. I also didn’t have a design in mind upon arrival, so I allowed Aberli to do “whatever she felt like getting out of her system.” She did not disappoint at all! I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve looked at my nails today!

–Trice B.

I have to say that I am truly impressed with my mani/pedi service and experience at Nailz!! This shop is clean with a modern fresh look! No chemicals used in this salon as a standard! I loved the personal space and service. I noticed right away that the pedicure bowl is set up with non-recycled water! I learned while there that 100% of the nail polishes at Nailz are free of the five top toxins! Joy was a pleasure to meet. She gracefully educated me on my nail health and gave me the most beautiful nail art I’ve every had. I cannot wait for my next appointment!!

–Shannon P.

Love this place! It's always peaceful and never painful! Lovely people who make you feel very comfortable and do a great job.

–Wendy B.

I received a wonderful massage from Tione!! This was my first time in six years get a massage (way to long) and it was amazing. She was very friendly, professional and asked plenty of questions as this was my first time receiving a massage from her. The atmosphere was great and very relaxing can’t wait to go back!!

–Monica J.
