5 Miami Nail Salons That Will Majorly Upgrade Your Next Mani/Pedi

Nail salons are a dime a dozen in Miami, so picking the best ones can be a little tricky. Of course, pricing and cleanliness are major factors, but we also wouldn’t mind some plush ambience and museum-worthy nail art. These five top-notch spots will leave you relaxed, recharged and polished.

Vanity Projects

Everything about this outpost of an NYC-based salon is next-level. The space is sleek, clean and ultra-modern, and the nail art is beyond impressive (think everything from leopard-print to marble to tiny roses). Psst: Appointments are required.

Luv Nail Shop

With plush chairs, pastel decor and eco-friendly products, Luv Nail Shop transforms the average mani into the ultimate self-care experience. After sitting through what felt like thousands of uninspiring manis, the founder decided to create a space that combines good vibes with a nontoxic lifestyle. Spoiler alert: It worked. We love the Confident manicure, which uses CND Shellac polish and lasts up to two weeks.

Gloss Nail Bar

Located in Coral Gables, this eco-friendly nail salon offers the ultimate combination of primping and relaxation. Go for the Gloss Essential, which includes a soothing hand treatment filled with essential oils, conditioning, a massage and your choice of polish. Don’t forget to grab some of the nontoxic, vegan and cruelty-free house-brand polishes on your way out for at-home touch-ups.

The Nail Garden Spa

Could this be Miami Lakes’ best kept mani/pedi secret? We think so. The Nail Garden offers your typical lineup of services, from regular manis and deluxe pedis to gels and acrylics. But what sets this place apart is its cozy setting with plush couches, fuzzy pillows and lots of natural light.

13969 NW 67th Ave., Miami Lakes; 786-536-2829 or

Rik Rak Salon

We’ll never turn down an excuse to visit the Four Seasons Hotel in Brickell. This glorious haven for a little R&R offers one of the most luxurious mani/pedi deals in town. Why? Well, let’s just say the salon includes its own bar and serves as much rosé as you can handle in an hour-long sesh. Say no more.
