Forget harsh smells, abrasive technicians, and florescent lights – Pinkies Nail Salons are all about making you feel at home. With six Bay Area locations, this salon spa commonwealth doesn’t skimp when it comes to friendly service, warm décor, and luxurious amenities. Pamper yourself pink with nonpareil nail, waxing, tinting, and tanning services, which have earned "best of" awards from SF Gate Baylist, Citysearch, and Palo Alto Weekly. We recommend getting your hands on Pinkies' Shellac manicure, a genius hybrid nail color application that's flawless for 14 days (unbelievable!) and removes in 10 minutes. By combining base, color, and top coats into one efficient formula, Shellac goes on like a polish, dries quickly under a UV lamp, and endures like a gel manicure. That means you can wash dishes, type, and text to your heart’s content and won’t even see a chip. What's more, it's hypoallergenic and contains no formaldehyde, toluene, or DBP. You're going to fall in love with it – we pinky swear.
