LA's nail salon scene keeps on getting cleaner. Boston-bred MiniLuxe has opened its first west coast lacquer lounge in Brentwood, and it's just one of three mindful manicure meccas set to invade our city.

Already with 18 other locations across the U.S. (including in Texas, Rhode Island, and its home state of Massachusetts), MiniLuxe is known for its fashion-inspired setting and startup-like approach to employee perks not typically offered in the nail industry: nail artists (who are referred to as "Nail Designers") and waxing pros (a.k.a. "Editors") earn $20 per hour or more and enjoy 401k, healthcare, paid time off, and more.

As far as pricing, manicures are $25 for signature service, $35 for hybrid polish, $45 for gels, and $50 for nail art (including a red-soled design by Christian Louboutin), pedicures are $40 to $60, and kids nails are $18 to $28. Also on the menu are waxing and brow grooming services ($10 to $70), plus add-ons like hand and foot scrubs and more.

Alongside its own line of five-free lacquers, MiniLuxe features shades from Tom Ford, Essie, Chanel, Dazzle Dry, and more; plus, next year the LA space will offer a special edition nail polish bottle designed by artist Shantell Martin, who created the salon's cool mural.

Can't make it to the Westside? The nail studio is set to open locations in Beverly Hills and West Hollywood next year.

MiniLuxe is open Monday through Saturday from 8am to 9pm and Sunday from 9am to 8pm.
