Other Day Spas
Laquerus is one of Madison’s only non-toxic and waterless salons. Why go waterless? Because it’s better for you, your nails, AND the environment. By skipping the hand or foot soak, you reduce the risk of waterborne infection and save over 15 gallons of water with each service. Plus, dry manis and pedis help your polish stay on longer – win/win!
They specialize in everyday, creative, or hand-painted nail art. Take a look at their seasonally-curated nail art menu, or browse their Instagram for inspiration!
