A brand new vegan nail salon “sundays” Studio has just opened inside of department store Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City.
The salon features a minimalist aesthetic inspired by the Nordic concept of “hygge”—a term that describes warmth, harmony, and good people. All of the products used in the nail salon are vegan and animal-friendly, including their lotions, nail polish removers, and its own nail polish formulations—which took an entire year to develop.
The polishes are available in 42 stunning colours and are “10-free”—a beauty industry term that indicates a polish does not contain the most common 10 chemicals and toxins found in traditional nail polishes such as parabens, formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate.
“When designing our studio, we knew we wanted to create a friendly, peaceful environment that feels like home,” co-founder Amy Ling Lin said. “Our studio is a place where everyone can feel accepted, beautiful, and free to be their authentic selves.”
Not only can customers pop in for a spot of nail pampering, but the shop also offers guided meditation during manicures and pedicures, in addition to hand- and foot-soaking treatments using ingredients such as coconut milk, essential oils, and handmade orange peel scrubs to ensure you leave feeling well and truly relaxed and pampered.
