A Melbourne nail store has been hailed as a ‘curious anomaly’ by one of its customers who claims to have had her first brush with nail art when she visited the shop a few years ago.
The ‘cute’ nail art shop, which opened in February 2016, is now a well-known online destination for the nail art enthusiast.
The owner, who asked not to be named, said she visited it a few months ago and was blown away by its range of nail art.
“I went in there and the staff were really nice and they were very knowledgeable and the nail artist was very knowledgeable,” she said.
“We were really impressed with how good the nails looked and how much it cost.”
She said the store was also well-stocked with different styles of nail polish and brushes, which was a plus for her when it came to picking a perfect shade.
“It was very cute that they had a selection of nail paints and brushes and a few of the colours were very interesting to look at,” she explained.
“So I went and picked a couple of colours and they had them for $3.”
She also said she loved that she could buy more brushes and nail art accessories than she could at a typical nail salon, which added to the overall experience.
“You can buy a lot more than you could get at a nail salon and there’s something to be said about that, you can buy the same brush and nail polish for a dollar,” she joked.
“They have lots of different products for different purposes and different purposes for different people.”‘
It’s amazing’The owner of the nail shop, who preferred to be called Laura, said her customers were drawn to the store for its quirky, fun, and whimsical vibe.
“Most people have seen a picture of it or heard of it, but I’ve had a lot of really wonderful people come in and tell me how happy they were,” she told ABC Melbourne.
“A lot of them are very positive people who say, ‘I don’t think you have to be so serious about nails but you are really clever’.”
People come in to ask questions, they’re excited, they want to try something new.
They come in with a new idea.
And I love that.
