On the Road: Embellish Nails & Boutique, Austin, Tex.

Two University of Texas grads left the business world to open a cozy nail salon and boutique close to campus in Austin.

Embellish is located in a newly developed, high-end shopping center known as the Triangle in Central Austin, close to the university. A lot of young professionals live and work in the area, helping the salon maintain its clientele of women in their late 20s to mid-30s.

And little did I know I was in the midst of a celebrity. My nail tech Taneil Gage had just been named Best Manicurist in Austin Monthly’s Best of Beauty issue. Unfortunately, I wasn’t planning on getting a manicure, but I can attest, my pedicure was worthy of a “Best of…”award itself. My only regret: I went to the salon before standing on my feet for three straight days of live music. Next time I’ll know to book my service for after the show.
