The scent of lavender gently ushers you to the gardens of Provence as you begin your luxurious, eco-chic journey, where you will be asked how you want a healthy French Tips experience using toxic-free nail polishes, beginning with a luxurious hand or foot washing using all-natural soaks (all of which are designed to whisk you away and take you to a lazy sunny day spent in the quaint orchards of the French countryside using Formaldehyde free and Paraben free materials.
The interiors certainly lend itself to the vibe. Impeccably designed to reflect the quiet luxury of France, each element inside French Tips Nail Parlour lets you bask in the elegance that the country is known for—from the high back armchairs that invite you sink yourself in to the intricate details that pepper the salon interiors like the faux grass and white reindeer heads that adore its walls.
