Favorite Dallas Nail Salons

Anyone who knows me, KNOWS I take great pride in getting my nails done. I was a nail biter for years (21 to be precise), and this was the way I could keep myself from biting.

That being said, I have a few go-to spots for getting your digits shined in the big D.


This Boston staple now has two locations in the metroplex. I love it because it is UBER sanitary. As a generally high strung person, I will pay a bit more for peace of mind. Granted, this is one of the more expensive nail salons (expect them to charge you for gel removal and nail art is typically per nail)

Bellacures still has a high-end feel (super clean, super modern) but is a bit more laid back feeling than MiniLuxe. I especially love that they have cushy microfiber chairs and the owner is very nice!

This is the least assuming of the list, and most affordable. While it is still extremely clean (are you noticing a trend here?) it is a little more dated/less high-end spa feeling. That being said, its actually my favorite place on this list. Why? Because of Teddy. He is amazing and my go-to for gel nail art in Dallas (when I can’t get to my favorite nail art haven in Austin, Sugarcoat).

Do you have a favorite nail salon? What do you look for in one?

So, I might be a little late, but I’m totally smitten with the nail art trend. Don’t get me wrong. I like manis as much as the next gal, but recently I’ve become slightly obsessive.

Below are a few of my recent favorites!

Do you have any cute nail art to show off?

Great Weekends

Sometimes you just have really, really good weekends. The kind of weekends that make you remember how awesome life can be in the most simple ways!

It was one of those weekends. And like all good weekends, it started with nail art.

I went to Central Market and couldn’t help snagging some flowers.


I saw this on Pinterest and had to give it a whirl. I call it cookieception (a cookie inside a cookie). Just bake halfway through plop a a circus cookie on top, finish baking and voila!



Naturally, I did some DIYs. I love the pom ring and tassel key chain. Oh and still trying to perfect DIY midi rings. They are all love children of my I’m-not-paying-for-that-I-can-make-it attitude that often comes on in boutiques and Anthro…

But I did cave at the huge Anthropologie sale section and bought these flats. Whoops….


I also watched Mean Girls twice and went to Spiral Diner with a friend. So all in all, a GREAT weekend. What did you do?
