It's time to change lanes when it comes to your nail salon.

Varnish Lane is a natural, waterless nail salon that redefines the traditional mani/pedi. In a field focused on speed and efficiency, we pause for our clients. We established a culture of care with waterless techniques, exceptional staff, lovely space, as well as non-toxic nail polishes and gels.

Founded on principles of safety, beauty, and ease, Varnish Lane is a nail salon where we are confident every experience is exceptional.

Why waterless?

We believe in waterless nail services defined by health, not haste.
Eliminating H20 from our nail salon was an early (and easy) decision.
Our waterless manicures and pedicures are better for your nails, your health and environment.

Water is the leading instigator of nail infections related to manicures and pedicures — a risk we 'll gladly pass.

Waterlogged-skin prevents any real effect of moisturizing products. Skip the nail soak and make friends with moisturizers.

Water-soaked nails swell and shrink within hours of service, leading to nail polish chipping prematurely.

Waterless nail care saves up to 15 gallons of water per service. Let 's save the water for poolside hangs, brewing tea, and ocean waves for years to come.

It 's better for you. It 's better for the environment. It 's that simple.

the varnish lane standard

Beauty should not come at the expense of exposing ourselves or others to harmful toxins. At Varnish Lane, we are setting a new standard of wellness for nail service clients and workers. We strive for best-in-class nail salons and services, innovative wellness standards, and endless creative touches. We were the first salon in the country dedicated to waterless services, and our ever-expanding nail polish collection is always free of common toxins.

True beauty is healthy and safe!
  • Our nail services are waterless as we do not use water basins or whirlpools during our manicures or pedicures.
  • We only use polishes that qualify as “7 Free or higher” and do not contain the following toxins: formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, camphor, and Dibutyl Phthalate.
  • We do not offer acrylic nails as we believe the fumes are unhealthy for clients, nail technicians and hospitality associates.
  • We only use plant based removers instead of the petroleum based acetone used by most salons.
