I can never figure out how to book 2 services for 2 people, only one service each is what i see, anyone able to help me?
Lacquer is my favorite boutique salon. Elaine is awesome, super friendly, not too chatty, and does a great gel mani. I'll be a regular now!

Natural nail studio specializing in natural nail care (no acrylics), Shellac, nail art and waxing. We are Safe Salon, CND Shellac and IBX Certified.

LACQUER's 2nd and newest location located near the Domain in North Austin.

Happy Chinese New Year! 🧧
💅by Yun


Please take a moment to read this. Thank you to our loyal customers for your continued support. It’s meaningful. You are making a difference.

I probably respond to 2-3 customer complaints a week regarding how “expensive” we are. Our prices are around $1/minute and more if the product cost is super high. We have to structure our prices this way to pay our staff a fair, legal wage without cutting corners on safety or on the products we use. You want to know how the corner nail shop has such low prices? They usually pay their staff illegally and cut so many corners that impact your health and safety, you would be shocked if you knew the real truth. The US Department of Labor is cracking down. We were just investigated by the DOL and our case was closed with no further action. That means we are doing things the way they should be done. Please take a moment to read this article about common illegal employment practices in what I like to call “budget” salons. - Carla H., Owner & Founder

Here is an excerpt:
“These businesses selling beauty and relaxation often illegally underpay their workers, many of whom are immigrants. But state enforcement officials only address what is believed to be a small number of the labor abuses in this industry.

Since 2015, 91 Connecticut nail salons and spas have been ordered to close temporarily by the state Department of Labor for violations in how they pay their employees, DOL enforcement data obtained by Hearst Connecticut Media shows.
Every one of these businesses paid their employees in cash, without withholding taxes, and they all lacked proper workers’ compensation coverage, state records show. None kept payroll records.”

Happy Happy!

Thank you Beautifully Loved for inviting us to be part of this special day 💅💕

A very Big, Beautifully Loved THANK YOU to these beauties! 👏🏻

Today Kristen and Vivianne took time out of their day to come help us surprise a deserving Mom for her birthday at Dell Children’s Hospital! Everyone left with a full heart and grateful we were able to share our talents and be part of the birthday love!

Massage: Heart & Sole Massage ATX



What a soakless / waterless pedi looks like. We have been doing soakless pedis all week since the water restriction was announced. We boil water to soak towels and heat them further in our towel warmer. These towels are used to clean and soften feet for your service. It’s safer for you, and more effective - polish lasts longer on nails that have not been soaked in water. Not to mention...being wrapped in hot towels is so relaxing! Everyone is loving it, and this change will save Austin approximately 6,000 gallons of water a month from our salons alone. Feel good. Do good. 💅💦 (📷: Ask For Amber)

Proud to be saving hundreds of gallons of water every day while providing luxurious service to all!

We are going soakless! Due to current water restrictions in Austin, all services will be soakless (using warm towels) allowing us to conserve 4.5-6.5 gallons of water per service. So yes, girl, you can still get your pedi and pampering and be environmentally conscious! 💅 💦 — for more info on the benefits of going soakless, check out the blog post @herperfectcolor
