Denver’s eco-friendly Base Coat Nail Salon recently expanded, moving to a larger space in a new eco-efficient high rise and changing its look in the process. Owner Tran Willis turned to designers Rust & Varnish Hospitality Group to update the aesthetic. Still modern and sleek, the space is primarily black on black with neons and whites highlighted throughout. “We made it for both men and women,” notes Willis. The new salon features six full-service pedicure stations and four manicure stations. While the space can’t quite be called a gallery, the work of a rotating set of artists, all women, is featured prominently. Events including tarot readings, various pop-ups, and stick-n-poke nights are in the works.
