I was just in NYC visiting a friend and told her we had to make a stop at M&M Studio after I saw them tagged in a photo of some gorgeous nail art on Instagram. Luckily they were able to squeeze us in on a short notice.
The salon has a wide selection of colors and an impressive quantity and variety of embellishments. They have your normal glitters and rhinestones, but they can do glass-style nails (the hottest new nail trend from Korea) and have very kawaii 3D shapes (bows, donuts, and hearts just to name a few) that can be glued to your nail design. This is just one tray of their possible designs.
My friend and I felt that our two nail artists didn't skimp on the manicuring of the cuticles/nails but cut time by being very efficient, showcasing their experience. For example, my manicurist drew quickly but didn't make any mistakes, turning a process that usually takes about 1.5-2 hours into a relatively quick 1 hour appointment.
