Friends, summer has finally arrived. I know, I know. I'm super happy about it, too.
With summer comes the promise of one seriously awesome time. Montreal's got lots of events, festivals, and just good vibes in general on the horizon... And, what does one do when one has to face such things? One makes sure their nails are on point. (Well, probably).
Although frequent manicures can get super expensive, there are some places in the city that offer cheap prices and mind-blowingly amazing quality. Confused as to what I'm talking about? No worries. I got your back.
Most people know Blome as a blow dry bar, meaning they're pros at styling your hair to perfection. But honestly, the service they do for nails? Hands down amazing, bar none.
They offer classic manicures for the very fair price of $25, but for $10 more, you can spring for a Shellac manicure and make sure your gorgeous manicure last twice as long.
2. Salon Vong
Using only vegan products that don't include formaldehyde, toluene, or DBP, this spot is pretty much the obvious choice for anyone who's down to get a pretty manicure and take care of themselves/the environment while they're at it.
Salon Vong's regular manicures go for $20, but for $30 you can get their Deluxe Manicure, which adds an extra oomph to your hands - and, as always, features their high-quality products for the best mani experience possible.
3. O Coiffure & Spa
If you've been in Montreal for any amount of time, the chances are very high that you know about O Coiffure. Located right inside Ogilvy, O Coiffure is hugely popular - and for good reason.
The quality of the work they do is amazing - and, of course, this goes for their manicures, as well. A "Timeless Manicure" will cost about $23, which is a pretty awesome price for what you're getting, TBH.
4. Rouge Nail Bar
Rouge Nail Bar specializes in nail care, so you know that no matter what, you're going to get an awesome manicure.
Rouge consistently doles out astoundingly beautiful manicures - but just keep in mind that they don't do acrylic or gel nail extensions, preferring to up the beauty of your natural nails instead. They've got a wide variety of manicure options, but their classic ones goes for about $25.
5. Candy Nail Bar
Lover of nail art? Of course you are. That's where Montreal's Candy Nail Bar steps in. Specializing in Japanese-style nail art, this spot is sure to give your nails a super unique and adorable little twist.
But no worries if all you're looking for is a classic, gorgeous manicure. Candy does those mindblowingly well, too, and at $25 for a classic "Le Plateau" mani, it's pretty much the hugest bargain I've ever seen, friends.
6. JC Esthetics
Searching for an inexpensive spot to get your nails done? Well, stop the search. JC Esthetics is here to save the day.
Honestly, this spot is my go-to to get an adorable and inexpensive manicure. Located in Montreal's St. Leonard, inside of Inter-Bella Salon, JC Esthetics does an amazing job at making sure your nails are perfection. The gel manicures go for roughly $22 (!), which is pretty much the fairest price ever, bar none.
7. Salon Deauville
Salon Deauville specializes in one thing: Making sure you look your absolute best. They offer all kinds of beauty services - including hairstyling, waxing, and, of course, manicures.
The job they do here is straight-up awesome. They really do take the time to make sure your nails are perfect, and although their regular manicures start at about $22, their Shellac manicure is only $8 more.
8. Ongles Pro Nails
Alright, honestly, at this stage in the beauty game, I'm pretty sure we're all aware about Pro Nails. They do an awesome job for a very fair price, no matter what service you choose to get. Everything from manis to pedis? Yeah, they got your back.
In fact, a mani/pedi here will only cost you about $40 - meaning you can get both your feet and hands looking summer-ready, for an incredibly low price. If that doesn't scream "best deal ever", I don't know what does.
