Best Nail Salons on Long Island

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Hofstra chapter.

As someone who doesn’t get her nails done super often, finding out the price of my French UV Gel fill-in the other week had me GAGGED. Using a Google Form, Hofstra students were asked to share their favorite nail salons on the island so we could share them with you. Prices listed are based on respondents’ experiences and may vary slightly.

HX Salon

Of course, Hofstra’s on-campus salon had to make the list! Cosmetologists from many different academies make up HX’s workforce. Meaning the talent here is endless. For those don’t drive, the on-campus salon is the perfect place to get your next manicure.

According to the HX Salon page on Hofstra’s website, an acrylic french set is $45 and a normal gel manicure is $25.

Noblesse Nail Spa

Noblesse is located on 7th Street of Garden City – and there are lots of cute shops and cafes to stop into around the salon! The service here is excellent, and there are lots of options, from manicures to facials.

For a dip powder manicure, it costs $60, and for a UV French gel fill, it costs around $80. Noblesse is currently running a 20% off holiday deal, so take advantage of this opportunity while you can!
