“Gorgeous nails – great quality, thin and they never break. Have lots of colours to choose from and the techs are able to do any design you give them. Lots of experience in the salon and the ladies are all hilarious and so positive! Lots of clothing and accessories to purchase as well and a central location. Amazing prices for incredible quality!”

“Kim from Bella Nails did SUCH a great job!!! My hands look “instagram worthy” – yes, someone actually stopped me and used that phrase. She helped me pick a colour that would suit my skin tone and she really took her time to make the nails look exceptional. Clean salon, fun atmosphere, and really nice people. I would not hesitate to recommend this salon to anyone wanting those picture-perfect nails! Great service.”

Bella Nail Studio and Boutique: Take care of your nails

Most people don’t skimp on their personal care and hygiene. They follow a simple skincare routine, tooth care and even keeping their bodies healthy through exercise. However, most of them forget that fingernails and toenails are part of their bodies too. 

Oftentimes, they neglect their nails causing them to break or crack. Unlike the usual tooth or hair, nails need special care to repair any damage on them. No worries! Bella Nail Studio and Boutique is here to help provide the care your nails need. We help take care of your nails to keep them healthy and strong, preventing any damages or breaking. 

With 25 years of experience, our studio, working hand in hand with our friendly and professional staff, will take good care of your nails. We offer services to not only take care of your nails, but we also make sure that your hands and feet are taken care of.

We treat our customers with the utmost care, providing a luxurious and relaxing treatment. Our manicure and pedicure service will make you feel relaxed and beautiful, it will also give you the confidence to show off your nails, hands and feet. 

Bella Nail Studio and Boutique not only offers manicure and pedicure but also reflexology which helps in relieving stress and muscle tension. By applying pressure on certain parts of your hands and feet, it will lessen any pain from your body. Not only that, it’s been known that reflexology also helps to boost your immune system. This means that you’ll be less prone to sickness or infections. 

After we’re done, you’ll be leaving our studio feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Additionally, doing this will help balance your nervous system and stimulates the release of endorphins to help reduce pain and stress.

We also have an Ion Foot Detox known to help pull out harmful toxins from your body through your foot. Additionally, a foot soak after a day’s work will help you relax more and also revive the blood circulation in your foot. 

To make sure that your feet stay healthy, we also have a medical pedicure. It’s a treatment by our most trusted podiatrist that focuses more on the health of your foot. They examine the nails, skins and feet as a whole to understand the issue. Medical pedicure usually treats damaged or weakened nails, warts, blisters and calluses, athlete’s foot, ingrown toenails and cracked heels.

Despite the procedure more focused on the medical aspects, we at Bella Nail Studio and Boutique will still make you feel pampered. Our professional and friendly staff will handle the procedure with utmost care and spa-like tenderness. We also suggest to customers to come back at least once a month every month to keep their feet looking good.
