The Best Perth Nail Salon

Searching for a great Perth nail salon for fashion nails can be difficult. And no, that’s not a first world gripe…it’s just hard to find somewhere that ticks all of the right boxes. Hence writing this post for others that might be experiencing this same issue! And let me be very clear here – this is a personal recommendation – one that I’m not being paid.

So whether you’re visiting Perth for a holiday, you’ve lived here all your life, or you work in the city and want to get your nails done in your lunch break. I can highly recommend this Perth nail salon.

Let me start by explaining that I’ve lived in the city of Perth for over 19 years now. And I’ve been getting my nails manicured that entire time. (((So I’ve tried quite a few nail salons in my time. Some with great disaster, and others with great pleasure.))) And there’s just one that I would highly recommend to anyone asking! And that’s The Library Nail Salon in London Court (located in the Perth CBD).

Here are just a few of the fashion nails and designs that I’ve had crafted by them:

So I guess you’re wondering why I pick just this one nail salon? Here are 5 reasons why I love The Library Nail Salon:

1.  Whilst I’m not overly fussy, I do expect some basic requirements when it comes to a nail salon. With my number one priority being quality!

To me, there’s nothing worse than being rushed in and out with a chip (or similar) showing up a day or two later. Mainly because I’m generally time poor so if I have to go back to the nail salon because they didn’t do a good job the first time, then I’m rather unforgiving. But also, why shouldn’t we expect quality? Right?!

2.  My next basic requirement is cleanliness. Usually you can tell as soon as you walk into a nail salon as to whether it’s tidy. I also take note of how their utensils are being cleaned  as well (if at all).

And another thing I look for when I’m having a pedicure is how the staff are handling different clients i.e. are they wearing gloves, washing their hands, the foot sinks, etc ?

3.  Thirdly, I don’t want to overpay for my nails. There are so many nail salons these days so I expect that prices should always be comparable with one another. Click here to view The Library Nail Salon’s priceless.

4.  Forth on my list: I want an enjoyable experience. For me, I ask myself if the staff nice – and deserving of my repeat business. So this is important to mention here that each and every technician here has been perfect on all levels of their customer service. You can just tell that it’s a lovely place to work and the staff enjoy their job.

Recently I was in a rush so I went to the nail salon near my local grocery store and the lady was extremely rude. Not to mention that she was pushy too. I felt as though she thought I was dumb as she tried multiple ways of insulting me to push her up-selling skills onto me (or lack there of). Not only that, she also constantly asked me questions about my private life – and whilst I don’t mind small talk, it became an invasion of my privacy and I couldn’t wait to exit and never go back again. And whilst I won’t name the salon here, she really could have used a lesson in customer service.

5.  And last but no means least, I don’t take lightly to nail salons who only take cash. There was one salon in the city who only accepted cash. And I’m hoping that someone prompted them to reconsider that POS hinderance because we all have a right to an option of how we’d like to pay.

So with all of that being said, I’ve tried a multitude of nail salons across Perth. However, The Library Nail Salon in London Court takes the prize for the best Perth nail salon. Hands down!

If you’re anything like me, then you want it all when it comes to your regular manicure, pedicure and fashion nails. And there should be no reason why you can’t nail all of the above basic requirements, each and every time!
