Sephora Does In-Store Nail Art

By Kaitlyn Dreyling / July 28, 2011

You've probably already seen Sephora's nail art collaboration with Sophy Robson, but now the Sephora Nail Studio Art + Lacquer featuring XpresSpa brings the mani experience right to you in-store. You can shop the Nail Studio filled with all the shades from Sephora by OPI, Illamasqua, Dior, Nars and Nails, Inc. London, and then pick from literally a hundred nail art designs.

 Sitting at the manicure station, I had many options to choose from.

You purchase the nail polishes, rhinestones and Chic Prints needed for your design, and then a professional nail stylist will paint and perfect your nails teaching you step by step, so you can recreate your look again.

"Our clients look to us to provide not only the best products, but education and enhanced service for all things beauty," Sharon Rothstein, Senior VP of Marketing for Sephora said in a statement. "Nail art is so dominant right now and the incredible team at XpresSpa helped us provide an innovative way to respond to our clients' requests about this trend."

My finished look.

I opted for an embellished moon manicure in Sephora by OPI shades Domestic Goddess and I Don't Bite. The nail artist taught me how to create the moon mani and then placed rhinestones from the Sephora by OPI Nail Embelishment Stickers on top. There's even a drying station for you to wait at while your mini masterpieces dry.

Services range from a basic manicure for $15 to full on nail art priced from $25 to $75 depending on the intricacy of the designs. You can also get a French tip using any two shades you choose or a glittery topcoat for $20. And you can get Sephora's Chic Prints applied to your nails for $22 to $30.

There are no appointments necessary, so stop by the New York and California locations to get your own customized manicure.
