Here are some responses to frequently asked questions:

What is different about a waterless manicure or pedicure? Our waterless services rely on natural essential oils and moisturizers, meaning our clients do not soak their hands or feet in a water basin. By eliminating bacteria-laden basins and plumbing, we offer a more hygienic service, and reduce water consumption by 15 gallons of water per service. Our method promotes skin moisture retention and longer lasting polish wear.

Do you sell nail polish, nail products or other personal care items? In addition to our services, we offer a selection of natural skin care products in our shops including proprietary products like our Varnish Lane Nail Kit, Varnish Lane Nourishing Nail & Cuticle Oil, and our Varnish Lane Hand Cream. All of our personal care items are 100% natural. We have also curated a selection of 3rd party brands that we admire like Zoya, Deborah Lippman, Habit, Londontown, AILA, and more. If you would like to see us carry a particular brand, please let us know your thoughts by sending an email to

Will you be expanding stores to new locations? We currently have 7 locations across Washington DC, Charlotte NC, Atlanta Georgia and Charleston SC. In 2022, we will open our first nail place in Virginia which will be located in Alexandria. We are already exploring additional places and encourage you to let us know if you would like to see us in your neighborhood.

I see you have multiple salons in Washington DC, are you planning to open a nail place in Charlotte, Atlanta or Charleston? Yes, we plan to open multiple salons in each of those cities as well as launch in new cities. Please reach out to let us know if you would like to see a salon near you.

Are you open on weekends or holidays? All of our locations have weekend hours and we are open on some holidays. It is best to check the hours for each individual salon as our hours vary from location to location.

Are you able to do private parties in the salon or in remote locations like office parties or home parties? Yes, we love working with clients to cultivate private events. Please give us a call at your nearest Varnish Lane Nail Salon or reach out to to discuss your wishes.

Do you offer franchise opportunities for Varnish Lane? We do not currently offer franchise opportunities and all of our Varnish Lane Nail Salons are owned by our founders and investors.
