The best nail salons in Los Angeles - The Painted Nail

The Painted Nail - More Than Just A Conventional Beauty Salon 

You know you live in LA when the nail salon you’re visiting has an entire reality show based on it. Nail Files, filmed at The Painted Nail, premiered last year on the TV guide channel, and was the networks highest rated show to date. The salon owner and star is Katie Cazorla, who was a small town girl, turned nail guru, turned reality star. Naturally I had to check it out. painted

The décor is girlie, cute and definitely livelier than your average nail salon. They offer wine right when you walk in the door which is always an added bonus in my book. The chairs are big and comfy, the staff is super friendly and talkative.

I got a gel manicure from a woman named Lisa Person. She was energetic, fun, covered in tattoos, had multicolored hair and a kick ass personality. Not exactly the norm at nail salons in Los Angeles, which by the way I totally appreciated. There was not a dull moment in our conversation. After being there for ten minutes I realized everything about the place and crew screamed reality TV show. Did I mention the upstairs is reserved for parties and comes fully equipped with a stripper pole!?  nails4
I left The Painted Nail with a great mani and a massive grin. Rumor has it that season 2 is just around the corner. Be sure to tune in, who knows, maybe I’ll even make a cameo ;)
