That Perfect Mani & Pedi – The Nailbox

A fresh New Nail Salon in the Arts District.

NailboxLet’s be real, every girl loves getting her nails done. For me, it’s not just about having that fresh new coat; I go for the overall experience.

First off, the Nailbox is located in a great area in the Arts District of Downtown.

300 S Santa Fe Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90013

This is the perfect area for grabbing a bite to eat and then finishing off the day with a mani/pedi!

The moment I walked into the Nailbox, I was immediately OBSESSED with the environment. The interior was so welcoming, with its cleanliness, contemporary furniture, and simple colors. Who doesn’t love pink??

1DSC_9819Because I love to stick with light colors and neutrals, I kept it simple with OPI’s Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around, which has a very subtle yet beautiful light pink finish.

I loved the intricacy and time Suzy spent to make sure that my nails turned out perfect. She was also such a genuinely friendly and easy person to speak to.

Now, let’s move on to the best part. My pedicure!! I felt so pampered. Each pedicure comes with a massage, which is amazing!

I went in for a spa pedicure, which included a scrub of your choice (LEMONGRASS/GREEN TEA, MILK + HONEY/WHITE CHOCOLATE, LAVENDER BRIGHTENING, DETOX CHARCOAL).


The time Hannah spent for my charcoal scrub, massage and just making sure my feet were pampered and pretty 😉 , was to die for. She spent the time to make sure I was comfortable and enjoying the experience. I never felt a sense of urgency or rush from her.

Of course my toes turned out great as well!
