Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of meeting up with PattyCAKE$ to get my nails did. For those of you who don’t know, she’s a local nail artist in the LA area whose nail game is on point! I originally discovered her through Twitter and instantly fell in love with her nail art, so I couldn’t be more excited to meet her and let her work on my nails for the very first time. I thought I’d share my experience for those of you who are looking for a nail artist that can do more than your average.
Initially, I had a hard time finding her salon because it’s on the side of the street. I’d recommend anyone making a visit to keep an eye out for Bank of America, and to park in the lot behind the bank if you don’t want to deal with street parking.
I had a really good vibe when I first walked into the salon. The decor made it seem like a very high-end salon, and I was instantly greeted and taken to Patty’s station. The salon is also located in a nice looking area, which is always a plus for ladies stopping by after work to get their nails done.
To be honest, I had no idea what I wanted going into our nail sesh. Despite my indecisive nature, PattyCAKE$ was really easy going and came up with something that perfectly caters to my liking. She has her nail art album and several sample sets at her station, so there is plenty of inspiration to draw from.
PattyCAKE$ uses a superior quality line of Nubar products, which are known to be a healthier alternative for nails since they are free of toxins.
Overall, PattyCAKE$ did a great job on my nails, and I’m stoked by how they turned out! She is so crazy talented and down-to-earth, and I loved getting my nails done by her. She offers reasonable pricing depending on the intricacy of the design, so don’t hesitate to hit her up if you need your nails done for holiday parties, or any occasion at all! You can set up an appointment by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to doing nail art, she carries a line of accessories as well! She has troll necklaces and keychains, and dinosaur necklaces and earrings that would make excellent stocking stuffers. I personally picked up a couple of the troll necklaces myself!
If you haven’t done so already, be sure to follow her amazing work on @Cakes_Nails Twitter!
