Our second Varnish Lane salon opened in 2018 in the fashionable West End neighborhood of Washington D.C. The salon is nestled next to the Park Hyatt and famous Blue Duck Tavern and sits across the street from Fairmont Hotel and World Wildlife Foundation.


This location is minutes away from George Washington University, Georgetown University, Dupont Circle, Georgetown, and Foggy Bottom. It is also near the international monetary fund, the World Bank, Watergate, and the Kennedy Center Complex. In terms of Metro access, both Dupont and Foggy Bottom Red Line stations are nearby and convenient. In terms of a little history about the West End neighborhood, its name is a result of the area being the western portion of the original L’Enfant Plan for Washington.

All of our locations offer waterless manicures and pedicures and we utilize plant based polish removers. We hope one of our salons is near your home or office and that you will come visit us to experience a new standard in non-toxic and more natural nail care. It’s time to change lanes and “try dry” manicures and pedicures!

VL is my favorite place to get a pedicure! The staff is so friendly and professional and they do such a wonderful job. From start to finish, the experience is heavenly. The paraffin wax is my favorite part and my feet stay soft for weeks!

As always my experience at Varnish Lane was exceptional. My manicurist was professional, friendly, and did a wonderful job on my nails. Also whatever playlist they were playing was amazing! Truly the best nail salon in DC!
