There seem to be nail salons on every corner.  How do you pick the salon that’s right for you? Sure, convenience and cost are important, but there are some things to consider for your health and safety as well! Here are some things to think about before your next mani and pedi appointment:


This should be your primary concern to make sure you and your nails stay healthy. Tools, work stations and soaking tubs should be meticulously cleaned and sanitized after each client.  At PREMIER we are fully compliant with state laws and are proud to provide the highest standards including:

  • a medical grade implement sterilizer (same as your dentist) to kill 100% of the bacteria on our implements after each use.
  • nail files and buffers that are individually wrapped and disposed of after each client.
  • pedicure tubs disinfected with an approved EPA registered, hospital grade disinfectant that runs through the tub for 10 minutes after each client.


No one wants harmful toxins in their nail polish. But at the same time, how do you make sure you have a polish that actually looks great and lasts? At PREMIER we do not think you need to sacrifice when it comes to safety and quality.  All of our polishes are 3-free, and do not contain dibutyl phthalate, toluene or formaldehyde, protecting our clients from toxins while still providing a beautiful result!


A licensed and trained technician is the only person who should be performing a manicure or pedicure on you! Nails and cuticles that are improperly cared for can become infected, ingrown or worse! The health of your nails depends on the knowledge and skill of the technician that you choose.  All of PREMIER’s nail technicians have up-to-date licensing by the State of Illinois and they have graduated from specialized programs so that you can be assured you will receive the most knowledgeable care and service.

Make sure you keep these details in mind when you choose a nail salon. And remember, PREMIER is not only committed to the very best in nail care, we also are a full-service day spa offering natural, organic and chemical free skincare, facials, hair care and styling products.  And our complete array of spa services including massage, waxing, airbrush tanning, brow and lashes services, and couples treatments.  For more details see our website at or call 630.585.7633.
