Having moved from a charming lanehouse on Julu Lu to another harming lanehouse on Wuding Lu, Nail It remains the same at its core, offering high-end manicures and fabulously fun nail art. Prices start at 138RMB for a manicure and OPI colour, and 338RMB for a CND Shellac manicure; but the appeal of this comfortable little salon is in its overwhelming choice of nail art.
Started by a former fashion writer, creativity is at the heart of everything Nail It does. The unique designs – from classy to kitsch (check out the ‘vampire’ look below) – do come at a cost however; per nail, you can expect to pay between 5-50RMB depending on the complexity of the artwork. We opted for a simple galaxy feature nail, which cost us an additional 20RMB per nail on top of the manicure. It’s pricey admittedly, but if you’ve got some cash to splash, why not?
