Nail art at Valley in Nolita

April 22, 2010

My cute lil cousin Sabeen just got engaged recently, and for the ceremony she came across Valley, a nail art salon in Nolita that also randomly sells vintage clothes on one end of the store. The nail artist there helped her customize a unique nail design just for her.

First she put two coats of gold glitter polish:

Then she used a tiny thin brush to freehand a paisley-inspired design in black on top:

A coat of clear polish made it pop:

Hand painted nails start at $25 per set but can run up to well over $60 depending on how complicated your design is. Visit their website for the full price list.

    That is too cute! I love the nail designs your cousin got; so cute and fun!. I found your blog on LinkedIn through Sadia Khawaja. I must say I love the design of your blog! I just began my own beauty blog (, and I have been looking for a nail polish remover that doesn’t require intense scrubbing. I imagine your cousin’s nail polish removal took a strong polish remover, so, which brands do you recommend?

    This is really cool. You know you can buy those art nail polishes at sally beauty supply. They come with a really thin brush to make it easy to draw designs. Shy I bet you would be really good at that with your artsy talents!
