The highly-anticipated salon chain, Polished Perfect by Twila True, celebrated Lunar New Year with a sleek party.

The nail-only salon serves the Newport-Costa Mesa area of South Orange County, Calif. A spacious black and white interior with gold accents provides a warm welcome to the area's well-to-do clientele.

Polished Perfect offers more than nail services, this salon offers a sophisticated experience. Clients can choose from the salon's own polish line, CND Vinylux, Gelish, Minx, Crystal Culture, and Pavé services. 

Relaxing and retail are both key. The front of the salon has a lounge area where clients and friends of clients can unwind. In addition to polish, the salon offers lotions and chic jewelry for sale as well. A cafe is open within the salon serving coffees, beer, wine, and snacks.

The nail bar and pedicure chairs line the walls of the salon. A lookbook features the nail art of the season that clients can choose to wear.

In the spirit of Lunar New Year I opted for CND Vinylux in Bloodline on my toes. Senior vice president Cherri Phan helped me choose the popular color. Nail tech Claudia Romero helped me choose Twila True Winged Woman for my hands. Food, sparkly beverages, and a DJ were all on hand to celebrate Lunar New Year with the salon staff and clients alike.
