Nailz in Durham

I recently tried something new.

If you are local to Durham, you may have heard the news of a new Nail Salon moving in to the Roxboro office park off of Roxboro Rd! Nailz is a local nail salon that is by appointment only, located here. I have passed by it a few times and wondered what appointment only service would be like….. Well, it’s different than your typical nail salon, and I'm hooked! My 7 year old daughter Sofia came with me and also tried something new- her first manicure!

I have been to bigger nail salons of course, but I have never done the appointment only kind. When I walked in, my first thought was how clean the salon is. Joy, the owner, made us feel super comfortable and took such good care of us. She is polite, well spoken, and was so friendly with Sofia. They were buddies instantly.


When you use appointment only services, it is quiet and peaceful. All the focus is on the client. There is nothing like having the owner taking care of you to be sure you are going to leave happy. 

The nice part about Nailz is that ALL of her products are organic/vegan, even the polish brands she carries.  Her polishes are either 5-Free, 7-Free or 13-Free of harmful chemicals. 

I got a gel manicure, my usual in white. Afterwards I stopped by my Mom's house to drop off Joy's business card with her.  Since Joy also travels to her clients, she can visit you in your office or home, which I thought my mom might be interested in since she is so busy. 

Let me know if you go!
