Nail Salon in Utah County

Utah County turns out to be a great place for a nail salon. La Nails 1 is happy to be here. The people of Utah County are some of the finest clients any nail salon could have. They love manicures and pedicures and we do many of them each day.

Prices tend to be lower for manicures and pedicures in Utah County than in other areas of the country. Go you go to Las Vegas for example and you’ll find that a manicure can cost as much as $55.00, more than double what we charge here. Those are admittedly tourist prices. Those visiting Utah County for nail services are often pleasantly surprised at the modest cost and superior service.
Just last week we had some tourists from Texas that came in. We did their nails and feet and they all left with smiles on their faces. I hope they will come back next time they are in town.

The nail salon business is a very competitive one even in Utah County. People do not realize how many nail salons exist until they start looking. There seems to be enough business for all the salons however. That’s a good sign in this economy.

Sometimes we are so busy we turn away walk-ins. We wish we could do everyone that asks but it’s just not physically possible. Utah County folks want to look good just as much as anyone in the country especially before an important holiday or event.

Utah County used to be a sleepy little area with not much going on. My how that’s changed. We see all the major retailers and restaurants in the area now. You can get almost anything you want without going to Salt Lake City. With I-15 being expanded and all the new housing being built, we will only see an increase in the need for nail salon services in Utah County in the future.

Nail Designs

Nail Art or Nail designs is simply putting a design on your nails usually on top of the polish color. At LA Nails 1 we do nail design art but not everyone knows about it.
Lately we’ve had some of our technicians do nail design on their own nails so you can see the result. For July 4th we had several designs that you could choose from including a flag and various red white and blue themes. The price is stunningly low, only about $3.00 for most designs.

There are various types of nail design. Some are stickers or decals that are applied to the nail. We do very little of that type of design. Ours are hand painted by the technician who has been trained in nail design art. The result is awesome.

When you have a birthday or special event consider adding nail designs to your nails when you get a manicure. For holidays nothing starts a conversation like themed nails.

Alpine Utah Fire

A large brush fire in Alpine Utah is raging as of this writing. A lot of our nail salon customers come from Alpine and we are concerned. LA Nails hopes that everyone in Alpine is safe and that the fire will be contained quickly.

Homes have been ordered to be evacuated. That’s not a good sign. The National Guard is assisting. Let’s hope that they will be able to contain this quickly

Are we in Pleasant Grove, Utah ?

We get asked that question a lot. It seems some don’t know where the border between American Fork and Pleasant Grove is. The two cities do share a lot of streets. You could be in Pleasant Grove one minute and the next in American Fork and still be on the same street. I’ve always wondered what people consider their home town when their house sits on the border.
Our nail salon is not in Pleasant Grove. Sorry. Yes people have looked for ”nail salons Pleasant Grove” or “Pleasant Grove nail salons” on Google to find us and have been disappointed. LA Nails is actually in American Fork, UT but we are not that far from Pleasant Grove City.
Of course we do welcome all our Pleasant Grove clients of which we have many. When you come for a pedicure or manicure you’ll get top notch service no matter what city you hale from.
Our staff loves to do nails, and they love to do feet. There is a lot of satisfaction in doing a good job and I hope we always make our clients happy.

LA Nails is not THAT far from Orem

One of the surprises of operating a nail salon is the vast area from which clients come. Orem, UT is no exception. Our nail salon is in American Fork, but we see many clients from Orem on a regular basis. Why would that be?

Frankly we are not sure. I suppose we should ask them. A lot of Orem-ites have told us they bypass other nail salons in Orem and come to ours because they like the service better. That’s a very good feeling but I’m not sure it’s true of every client. Some perhaps live in Orem and work in American Fork and before or after work they will get a manicure or pedicure. Rather than go to a spa in Orem they simply drop by our salon. That would make sense.

Others could be looking in the Yellow Pages for Orem nail salons and happen to be attracted to our salon for some reason. It could be when sitting in their favorite hair salon in Orem or tanning salon in Orem and using their smartphone they discovered our website. Who knows! In any case rather than going to a nail salon in Orem we know for sure they are going to a nail salon (ours) in American Fork.

So how far is American Fork from Orem? If you take the furthest distance from our salon to edge of South Orem it’s around 10 miles. It would take about 20 to 25 minutes on the back road like Geneva road to get to the salon. While in American Fork you could shop at Fresh Market, which we are right next to, or go to Walmart, Best Buy, Home Depot, Lowes, and even do your laundry. You could eat at many nice restaurants like Thai Village, or Texas Roadhouse and even get coffee at Starbucks.

Sure it’s an extra drive to American Fork, but if you haven’t tried our salon you owe it to yourself to make the drive and experience what you are missing. I know you like us and you’ll like the vast number of merchants in the American Fork area that would make your trip extra worth-while.
