Cosmic Nails is a single studio inside Sola Salons, Charlotte, N.C. Because it’s a salon suite, owner Julie Nguyen is really conscious about the layout and how it affects the space. “Conceptually, I wanted to make the room look and feel bigger than it actually is. I painted my studio white to open it up and kept the furniture light in color; that way it would not swallow the room,” says Nguyen. The nail table is custom designed along with the nail polish rack and pedicure chair, which Nguyen’s brother built for her. The table can seat two people at once and has built-in storage under the table so that Nguyen can put her supplies in for a nice clean look. Overall, the theme is simple and modern. “I wanted my room to look timeless and feel inviting. If I ever get bored, I can always change the accent pieces, which will make my studio feel new without compromising the entire design,” says Nguyen.
