Do you like mile-long claws fit for an Instagram baddie, or a minimalist mani on your natural nails? Whatever your preference, Perth has a bounty of amazing nail artists to take your nails to the next level.
It might be almost cruel of us to include Palette Atelier on this list, as they’re not taking new clients… but not including them would be such an egregious oversight, so you’ll have to forgive us. You won’t find any super-long talons on their insta feed, but a stunning collection of abstract and colour blocking designs and dainty nail art.
656 Newcastle Street, Leederville
Looking for a bit more length and loving the Palette Atelier aesthetic? Lucky for us, Ciara from Palette has opened up shop and is taking on new client appointments on Fridays. Also located inside the super cute Pink House, Ciara is sculpting amazing acrylics with the same impressive nail art she has been wowing everyone with at Palette.
