base coat is a new nail salon opening up this sunday in the berkeley neighborhood of denver. tran wills, one of the creative minds behind brick & mortar, partnered up with her mother, who has years of experience beautifying nails, to open this sleek, modern, one-of-a-kind nail space. it is founded on the idea that your time spent there should be the most relaxing in your day. sounds pretty good to me!
in addition to the minimalist space–which oozes calm–base coat only uses nail polishes that are five-free (free of the five most harmful chemicals commonly found in nail polishes). and all of their nail and skin care products used during your treatment have been formylated by local company r.l. linden & co. concoctions include a basil + geranium cuticle soak, lavender + frankincense cuticle oil, petitgrain + lemon enzyme sugar scrub, and a spearmint + bergamot deep moisture foot cream, among other goodies. so it’s pretty darn green for a nail salon and safe for children and expectant mamas like me!
tran invited in to experience the magic hands of her experienced nail techs. i was so in awe at the well-designed space and soaked in (literally and figuratively) the relaxing treatments i received. these ladies are good. there are three levels of services for every schedule and budget.
there’s an opening party, this saturday, september 14th, from 4-8. stop on by, meet tran and the rest of the gang, sip some champagne and make a future appointment (no services will be offered. this is just to celebrate the opening!). the first 25 to book an appointment will receive a goodie bag!
Looks amazing! I’m so excited for this to be in my ‘hood, AND within walking distance of my house. I’ll try to stop by on Saturday on a break from Rebel Bells prep. Oh, and Em – your hair looks great!
Jealous! I was rifling through all the base coat instagrams earlier this week trying to see if they were open yet. I wanted a birthday pedicure and I wanted it NOW (then). Can’t wait to get my feet in those tubs that aren’t connected to questionable pipes full of other people’s diseases!
Looks incredible! It’s wise to avoid the toxic stuff.
This space looks so gorgeous! I’m going to have to check it out asap! I love the levels of service for every budget…great for us students!
