On the Road: Solara Nail Bar

by Beth Livesay | July 23, 2018

Solara is well-lit and cool thanks to the nearby Seal Beach, Calif., sunshine and breezes.

The salon makes its own scrubs for services and displays them in a rainbow-like gradient against the black and white decor.

Solara offers 17 signature pedicure services that come with themed ingredients. I chose the Lungo Mi Espresso (not pictured).

The pedicure seating is spacious and plush, complete with gold sequin pillows.

Co-owner Nick Pham is a proud NAILS subscriber.
