After almost a year of having natural nails, I decided to get my claws back just in time for my university graduation. I visited the famous ‘B’ of Classy Claws in my hometown Vancouver, BC. She’s a local legend for her nail art and she also does Samantha Ravndahl’s nails- that girl is my spirit animal. If you haven’t heard of either of them you best be heading to Instagram right now.
I was charged $75 for a brand new set with gel polish, plus $25 for the nail art. Yes $100 is hard to swallow on a set of nails, but her rates are competitive with other salons and her work is known to last. There is nothing worse than splurging on nail art only to have half of it fall off within a day. Plus, her studio is chill AF. No catty nail techs making fun of you in another language, no questionably clean utensils, and no elbow to elbow seating! Instead there is a spacious two level space, cute decor, and rap music. Why didn’t I go in earlier?!
