Although it’s not THAT new to the neighborhood (over a year old, I believe), I just visited Sugarcoat’s Virginia Highlands location for the first time this week + I am happy to report that it’s my new favorite Atlanta nail salon!
Typically, I opt for Lily’s Nails on Piedmont/Monroe, Polished on Peachtree/North Druid Hills, or Top Nails in Toco Hills for convenience and cost-effective regular nail services. I also like the flexibility of being able to walk into any of these no-frills salons and get a service right away. Sugarcoat, however, has officially changed my perspective.
Although it is slightly more expensive than my regular salons + appointments are requested, the atmosphere, selection of services, and customer service at Sugarcoat is definitely worth the $$$ and the effort to make an appointment. Look at how pretty it is inside! So sleek, modern, + clean.
It definitely does not look like a typical intown nail salon.
Sugarcoat offers a variety of services including waxing, massages, and eyelash extensions, but I focused on the hands/feet services during my first visit. It was nice to see that they offer an Express mani/pedi for busy bees at a very decent price for a basic service ($12 mani/$25 pedi/$35 combo), but I had time during my visit and I opted for the Escape to Fiji services. They were awesome – and worth every penny. I highly recommend when you feel like treating yourself!
Escape to Fiji Manicure: Nail shaping, cuticle care, Pure Fiji Coconut Creme Scrub, ultra moisturizing Pure Fiji Coconut Body Butter massage. $30.
Escape to Fiji Pedicure: A mini-vacation for tired feet! Coconut foot soak, nail shaping, cuticle care, Pure Fiji Coconut Oil Exfoliating Sugar Scrub, gentle massage using warm stones and Pure Fiji Pineapple Scented Oil. Tiny warm stones are placed between toes while they are polished to perfection. (Cabana boy and pina colada not included…) $50.
Escape to Fiji Combo: $75.
Sugarcoat is totally hip, and although it’s not new to the Highlands, it’s newish to me – and I’m in LURVE! I can’t wait to visit again for some serious pampering!
