Known as the place to go in Dallas for gel-polish manicures, this hip and trendy salon is situated in the lively center of McKinney and Lemmon, an old neighborhood-turned-hot spot.
Out on her Own
Every detail has been accounted for in the deluxe space designed by Victoria Tran, who opened Posh Nail Spa in September 2009 after working for her husband’s family business for over 12 years. Armed with plenty of experience and the chance to create her own concept, she set out to exceed customer expectations. While her services are affordable and she accepts walk-ins as well as appointments, you can’t help but feel luxuriously pampered by the attentive staff and lush surroundings.
Being particular in hiring practices has been important for a salon that has grown from six to 22 in the past two years. After meeting strict requirements, nail techs must still go through Posh’s own training. Conscious of not being a quick and impersonal salon, the staff is encouraged to spend time with clients. While visiting with my boyfriend’s mother, JJ, our classic mani/pedi package was performed by four friendly and outgoing technicians — one of whom joined in to sing with JJ.
Making a Mark
When gel-polish first emerged, Victoria was the first in Dallas to offer it. By providing good PR and a one-week no-chip guarantee, Posh established itself as the go-to place for gel-polish. Not content to rest on her laurels, Victoria is always planning ahead even when it comes to her decor. The impeccable mid-century, art deco design has already been renovated once, including new mirrors, chairs, and fresh paint.
> In order to stay at the top of the gel-polish game, Victoria orders a bottle of every new brand that comes out on the market to test it. Those that make the cut get a trial run in her salon.
> For her long-standing clients who have tried it all when it comes to gel-polish, Posh offers its own line of mixed colors.
> There is no better place to relax and have fun. Holidays, birthdays, and bachelorette parties are hosted in the salon. Many clients are attracted to Posh for their social fix — stop in anytime for drinks and to mingle with the other clients.
