Check Into The Nailtel


This new, hotel-inspired nail boutique in Sierra Oaks, owned by Sacramento native and former Sephora beauty editor Mari Tzikas Suarez, brings high-design ambience, zero-waste service and nontoxic products to the nail salon experience. Interior designer Claire Jones of Etch and Ivy Design worked with Suarez to create the space, which includes a 24-square foot custom Instagram-inspired mural (shown here) by area photographer Alyssa Lawson and a “drip wall” by local artist Jeremy Stanger. Nail polishes are nontoxic from primarily women-owned brands, sanitizing practices include hospital-grade autoclave steam sterilization (an extra step not required by law), and the salon is partnered with Green Circle Salons, which turns salon waste into clean energy.
