7 Nail Spots In Nairobi Worth Checking Out

The older we get the more fastidious we become about the quality of services we expect when getting our glam on. A number of beauty and nail parlors have caught our eye particularly due to their world-class standards.

What’s even better is how the often young, nail technicians, use their Instagram accounts to show off their work and market themselves. Am I the only one who has a bunch of these saved in my archives?

If you’ve been eyeing someone’s nails and perhaps too shy to ask where they got them done or possibly doubted if they were done in Nairobi; we’ve got you covered!

Here are some of the places to check out. Our list may not be extensive but that’s the whole point. If we are missing someone who does bomb work, let us know and we shall add them …. we’d also want to know of other places outside Nairobi!

A statement manicure will set you back from as little as 1500ksh for stick ons, 3000- 5000ksh or more for acrylics. Trust me, it’s all worth it and lasts longer than a regular or even gel polish. Remember to book an appointment for your session as walk-in clients may have to wait in line to be attended to by the best! 

Isn’t it inspiring just how the beauty industry enables these young individuals to use their talents to stack up some coins!
