The nail salon experience of yore wasn’t something to be enjoyed but rather endured: cuticles nipped, chemicalladen polish slapped on, breath held to avoid fumes. No longer. Today’s best nail clinics are beautiful spaces full of clean air—and cleaner polishes. Thanks to technology, you can even summon technicians to your home. Find the perfect way to decorate your digits with L.A.’s hottest new nail news.
