The Nail Shop
Coming soon to downtown Lexington
By Kristina Rosen
The Nail Shop will debut at The MET in early spring.
When Kim Hunyh opened the first Nail Shop location in Brannon Crossing in 2019 she wasn’t necessarily planning a second location, but says, “My goal has always been to open a location downtown, in the heart of Lexington where innovation and diversity come to life.”
Within two years, The Nail Shop has made a name for itself in Lexington by combining old and new practices, from hiring a team of established technicians to integrating a mix of new marketing techniques and social media tactics.
Hunyh claims her business is not based around aesthetics, but instead focuses on taking time out for yourself. “I think that speaks to women more than come in and make your hands pretty. Come in and feel good,” says Hunyh.
The interior space of the new salon will resemble the style of the first location, yet have a more industrial feel that fits the vibe of the new MET development. Services offered will remain the same with the addition of eyelash extensions and facial waxing.
The Nail Shop survived the first round of Covid related closures and reopened with new policies in place. The new location will offer bridal parties again, which was a service that was halted at the height of Covid.
“The Nail Shop represents self-care and self-love. A space where women leave feeling empowered and refreshed. We’re helping women build confidence one mani at a time.”
