Here are some of the coolest nail bars and spas in the city to keep your claws on point.

Candy Nail Bar

The city’s leading nail art bar, Candy Nail Bar, was established in 2009 and was one of the first spas to bring in gel polish and the 3D nail art trend to Montreal. 3D nail art consists of appliqué bows, pearls, flowers, or essentially anything you want that is both sculptural and adds dimension to the nail. With some manicures running you a tab of around $125 along with a three-hour application, this nail bar is definitely a treat but way worth it if you’re a nail fanatic.
