Luxury Nail Affair Will Open First Northern California Location in December
Napa, CA (October 14, 2020)— The area’s first luxury nail affair, PAINT Nail Bar Napa Valley, will open at First Street Napa in December, complete with a high-end, fume-free, hygienic and environmentally- friendly experience, all at an affordable price point.
“The addition of personal care services, like PAINT Nail Bar Napa Valley, gives locals and visitors alike even more reason to stroll through First Street Napa,” said Todd Zapolski, managing partner, First Street Napa. “With their focus on a luxurious experience and environmentally-friendly products, they are a great fit for our community.”
This PAINT Nail Bar location, located in Suite 322, will be the first in Northern California. The Florida-based franchise currently has 13 salons nationwide, offering a wide range of services including traditional manicures and pedicures, sculpted gel options and a mini PAINT designed for kids age 12 and under. With an atmosphere designed to pamper, the salon uses only nontoxic products, and emphasizes cleanliness and hygiene.
“At PAINT Nail Bar Napa Valley, we are completely dedicated to the health and integrity of the natural nail, and everything in our salon focuses on that,” said Elyse Quast. Quast found the franchise when she was looking for a safer and more sanitary alternative to typical nail salons. “I found myself seeking not only a healthier, safer and hygienic nail salon but also one that truly evokes the culture and focus of hospitality that is prominent and at the forefront of Napa Valley. I want to provide a space that offers guests an experience and not just a service, all while in a fun, energetic and sanitary environment,” Quast continued. “As far as the PAINT experience for clients and staff goes, it is unlike any other. It is a place that welcomes clients of all ages, empowers staff, and encourages community.”
All of PAINT Nail Bar’s specially trained nail technicians use tools that are cleaned in a medical grade sterilizer. Certain items, such as buffers and manicure sticks that cannot be sterilized, are used only once and then disposed of or given to the client to take home. All polish lines are nontoxic and 5-7-9 free, and do not contain formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, camphor nor DBP (Dibutyl phthalate.) PAINT utilizes water-based gel polishes that do not damage the natural nail, and prides itself on being a drill- free salon. In addition, PAINT uses LED lamps rather than UV lamps, and chooses ceramic pedicure basins (as opposed to pedicure whirlpool jets) that will not harbor bacteria. “Everyone will feel confident in making the decision to enjoy services at our nail salon without the concern of harmful fumes and products. We are truly more than just a nail salon,” added Quast.
