Time flies when you’re getting beautified. For PAINT Nail Bar owner Jennifer Lee, running this downtown oasis has been a dream decades in the making.

Lee was a financial adviser for 25 years before embarking on her own entrepreneurial adventure. On January 2, 2019, Lee went from a PAINT Nail Bar investor into an owner.

PS: The nail oasis is hosting GALentine Wednesday’s all throughout February. Bring in a bestie who’s never had the PAINT experience before, and receive a $15 gift card for your next visit!

Treat yourself at this local oasis

Treat yourself. We preach it so you’ll live it. It’s easy to do at PAINT Nail Bar. The downtown hub is a space to get your nails done and your skin treated. It’s like splashing your face in an avant-garde fountain of youth.

PAINT Nail Bar will celebrate its 1st Birthday downtown on Saturday, January 11. The place to get pampered will offer giveaways all day, and will host a cocktail reception for 4-6pm.

It’s not your typical nail salon. PAINT’s fume-free environment literally saves you the headache of getting done up.

The chic nail oasis is replete with products free of toxic ingredients typically responsible for deteriorating nail health — that means 5-free. 5-free means the polishes don’t contain formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, camphor, or DHP. So if you have skin sensitivities or allergies, these products are completely safe to use.

Quite possibly the chicest mani ever! Marble nail art with gold accents created by our talented nail artist Jade ✨⁠

Paint Nail Bar goes beyond the nail

PAINT is looking beyond the nail and offering more rejuvenating services at their Central Avenue spot.

The classic European facial is the height of luxury. The treatment involves a thorough deep cleansing combined with Paint’s signature massage. The process hydrates and purifies combination skin while the skin is soothed with St. John’s Wort, and Green and White Tea extracts.

If you haven’t experienced the healing power of seaweed, then you’re missing out. PAINT Nail Bar offers a seaweed treatment that literally makes you glow. Customers enjoy a soothing massage with PAINT’s multivitamin C-Serum, which is followed by a freshly mixed seaweed mask.

Skin treatments that will make you G-L-O-W

They’re now even offering treatments for more mature skin. Exfoliate and radiate, y’all. The Vita Cure 5 Phase Firming Facial (love us some alliteration) is specifically designed to help invigorate, and tone the appearance of mature skin. An enzymatic Micropeel helps uncover a more even-toned complexion. Basically, it reveals all of that inner beauty just itching to express itself.

PAINT doesn’t stop there. You can get a classic full set of eyelash extensions for $150, or a volume set for $250.

We have openings!!! Come get your red on. #valentinesday #red #heart #galentines #love
