About 20 minutes off the Strip is this oasis that offers nail, hair, skin, and makeup services for a relaxing and luxurious experience. Winner of the 2012 NAHA design award, Square prides itself on being the ultimate destination for beauty in the Las Vegas area.

Square carries a variety of polish brands including OPI, Essie, IBD, Orly, and Morgan Taylor. Gel-polish brands include OPI, Gelish, and IBD.
