Located in the heart of downtown, Khrome Nail Bar is a full-service luxury nail salon and cocktail lounge that serves alcoholic drinks as you get pampered. Its unique business model is a hit in Edmonton and earns it a spot on our list.

While Khrome Nail Bar offers a classic manicure, their luxury manicure is the better choice, providing a spa treatment for your hands. This includes softening and pushing back your cuticles, pampering your hands with a hot towel, and you can opt to apply a gel or regular polish afterward.

To make things even better, Khrome Nail Bar also offers custom hand-painted designs on your nails to help you stand out in the crowd. They can apply diamonds, stickers, and even Swarovski crystals on your fingernails!

We like Khrome Nail Bar even further because even though they provide high-end luxury services, they still cater to pamper children under 10 years old. Their special mani-pedi packages for kids can apply gel polish to your little one’s nails.

Khrome Nail Bar takes its business model a step further, offering an academy with programs in gel and acrylic applications for those seeking a profession in the beauty industry. When students complete their two-day classes here, they’ll be authorized to purchase professional products from any Candian distributor!

Kumi Nail Loft has been nominated twice in the Top Choice Awards as one of the best nail salons in Edmonton. Their intricate designs and luxury services have put them at the forefront of their niche industry.

They offer classic manicures (“Express Mani”) and a more luxurious treatment (“Spa Mani”) that is typical of other nail salons. However, they offer includes a massage and the option to put nail strengthener instead of polish.

While you’re getting your mani, you’ll want to consider looking at all the customized nails they have on offer which include hand-painted designs, gems, jewels, and encapsulated designs!  They also offer Aprés Gel-X which is a revolutionary soft gel nail extension system that’s easy to apply and remove, which is an alternative option that not many salons offer.

We also like Kumi Nail Loft because each nail technician has their own special promotions that you can avail of in their area of expertise. They offer special tutorials for anybody that wants to learn how to care for and apply polish or gels to their nails.

Take note that any first-time customers to Kumi Nail Loft will only be allowed to get one solid colour without a design. This is because they can’t vouch for your nail’s current foundation, and can’t guarantee that their products will adhere to your nails without their specialized treatment.

However, for its regular customers, Kumi Nail Loft offers a 5 day-guarantee for their nail services and they’ll make any repairs free of charge during this period, which includes breakages for artificial nails.

If you’re booking an appointment at Kumi Nail Loft, you’ll need to take note of their strict policies, such as a 15-minute grace period, and a non-refundable deposit on your next appointment if you do not call to cancel within 48 hours. So make sure to be on time to receive the best in nail pampering!

Pros

  • Includes massage and option for nail strengthener for manicures
  • Offers Aprés Gel-X application

Cons

  • Limited operating hours
  • New clients can only get solid colours
  • Strict booking policies

V5 Nails earns a spot on our list because of their Herbal Spa Manicure which includes plenty of extras such as exfoliation, reinvigorating gel scrubs, mineral mask, and a massage from your arm to your fingers. To make things even better, you can choose your scent for the included aromatherapy namely lavender, lemongrass, rosemary, peppermint, rose, tea tree, or eucalyptus.

In case you don’t have time for all the extra treatment but just want aromatherapy added to your Classic Manicure here, you can do so with a small fee of $10. No matter which service you choose, you have options for added shellac polish or customized nail designs starting at $5.

Now, if you’re not sure about having the shellac polish added, maybe V5’s 5-Day Nail Perfect Guarantee will convince you. Free repairs of any damage to your nails are offered during this period which covers chipping, a missing nail, and lifting, among others.

While we’re not huge fans of their salon seats and interior design, we feel like their customized nail designs and other extra services more than make up for it. We especially like that they offer polishes to children under 5 years old, which can be a great girl’s day for mom and daughter!

Pros

  • Herbal Spa Manicure includes a lot of pampering services
  • Can add aromatherapy to Classic Manicure

Cons

  • More than 2 nails missing is considered a new set

Debra Van Dyke opened the first Frilly Lilly boutique in 2005 with a team of three people offering waxing, manicures, pedicures, and signature cruelty-free products. Today, they have expanded all over the country with 19 boutiques, providing Canadians all over with their premium services.

With a mission and vision that puts empowering women for success at their forefront, their services aim to both pamper and instill confidence in their clients to take on the world. And this is all done in a chic boutique with all the accessories and decor still handpicked by Debra Van Dyke herself.

The Marvellous Manicure here at Frilly Lilly is definitely an experience, which includes an aroma soak, nail shaping, cuticle cleaning, exfoliation, and massage. You can choose between the complimentary standard polish, add French polish, or accentuate your experience even more with paraffin.

Their Gel Polish Manicure, on the other hand, includes the same treatment except for the choice of gel polish as a finishing touch. You can choose between shellac, OPI gel polish, and IBD gel polish, among others.

Apart from their services, we like Frilly Lilly because their boutiques and office are powered with sustainable energy such as wind, low-impact hydro, and solar power. They also actively plant trees every year in collaboration with TreeEra, and support numerous social causes within each community their boutiques are located in.

Pros

  • Uses cruelty-free products and eco-friendly materials
  • Boutiques are powered with renewable energy

Cons

  • Doesn’t offer customized nail designs
  • Expensive compared to other salons
