Nontoxic Nail Salon

Tucked into a sliver of retail stores off Route 50 near Seven Corners, this serene jewel box of a nail salon amassed a cult following after it opened in late 2018. Chemical-conscious customers appreciate owner Jade Kim Trusso’s mission to bring wellness into all aspects of their lives—starting with their fingertips. Past the tiny waiting area filled with modern art books and minimalist furniture, clean rows of no-fuss nail stations are used for luxe treatments incorporating healing crystals and essential oils. All products used in the salon—including gels and polishes from brands like Deborah Lippmann, tenoverten, NCLA and local maker Mischo Beauty—are cruelty- and toxin-free, which makes for a healthier staff and happier clients. –Adrienne Wichard-Edds
