PAINT Nail Bar Offers Non-Toxic Natural Nails

Becca Ballard

The Experience

The luxurious PAINT Nail Bar that you may have heard of, offers a different and one of a kind nail experience. PAINT Nail Bar is all about eco-friendly polishes in a fume-free environment. This nail bar is affordable and yet, a luxury experience including frun drinks, gorgeous furniture, and great quality employees and products. The first thing you’ll notice is that it looks and smells unlike any other nail salon you’ve ever been in.

PAINT Nail bar does not look, feel, or smell like a traditional nail salon and that is exactly the point. A unique experience is present the moment a client walks through the door. Here, you'll find gorgeous furniture, an odorless environment and non-toxic products. You truly don't smell a thing when you walk in, making the experience both healthier for the employees and clients.

The 'HOW'

To achieve an amazing, yet rare, fume-free and non-toxic atmosphere, PAINT Nail Bar uses the highest sterilization standards along with nontoxic nail polishes. These nail polishes are “5-7-9 free” which means they contain no ingredients like formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, camphor or dibutyl phthalate (DBP). These unhealthy ingredients are found in most nail salons which is the reason PAINT Nail Bar stands out to the rest. Nail polish brands include vegan-friendly gel polish, Bioseaweed, which is a water-based gel that does not stain, weaken or dehydrate the natural nail. Another brand option is, Madam Glam, which is a polish that is nontoxic, gluten-free and even safe for expecting mothers.

The experience here doesn't end start or end with the quality of products because the employees make the experience that much better too. The nail bar technicians go through weeks of training to learn techniques, protocols and knowledge to best serve the clients.This eductation continues each year as there is so much to learn and stay up on in ths modern era. PAINT Nail Bar is all about the health of the nail and employees here are taught with the mindset to help people get their absolute most healthy nail.

Keep in mind that along with the nontoxic products, all of the tools used are sterilized in a hospital-grade autoclave. This just means that the products are cleaned in the same product that surgical centers and dental offices use to ensure your safety. Tools such as buffers and manicure sticks, are used only once and then thrown out. No chemicals, acrylics, or drills are even kept in the building.

PAINT offers a high-end, hygienic, and environmentally friendly experience, at an affordable price point. It only takes one time of walking through the doors at PAINT Nail Bar, to never go anywhere else again. This experience is unparallel and truly life-changing.

Welcome to a glimpse into the latest local stories, travel, restaurants and more! Most topics you'll find around here are local to Michigan, but I might just surprise you! Grab a coffee and stay for awhile. I hope to leave you restless with the urge to explore somewhere new whether that be a new city or restaurant.
