The top 5 nail art salons in Toronto

The nail art craze hit Toronto many moons ago but it's still going strong. Although many people forfeit the initial trend of detailed artwork in favour of more simplistic designs, nail art is very much alive and well. Whether you're looking to get your tips stamped with geometric patterns or something with a little more oomph, these places have got you covered.

Here are my picks for where to get nail art done in Toronto.

Her Majesty's Pleasure
If you're a fan of creative manicures but don't want great works of art done on your tips, head to Her Majesty's Pleasure. The King West beauty bar does simple, but beautiful nail art. The staff here have mastered geometric designs and ombres, but can also do a quirkier looks like this watermelon mani.

Get Gelled
Get Gelled has really turned manicures into an art form. The staff here excels in detailed designs and are able to create miniature works of art on your tips. They've done everything from Charlie Brown to intricate tribal designs, so the sky's the limit.

Tips Nail Bar
Tips Nail Bar has some of the best nail artists in the city on its staff. Need proof? One of their manicurists, Naomi Misu, won the 2015 Canadian Nail Artist of the Year Award. The Vogue-worthy creations here range from minimalist chevron designs to Blue Jays-themed nail art.

Hard Rock Nails
Hard Rock Nails is the go-to spot for acrylic lovers. It's a "go big or go home" operation with manicurists mainly working with fake nails that extend inches beyond your fingertips. And that's not all -- they can adorn your newly lengthened nails with anything from hand-painted designs to sparkling jewels.

Naked Beauty Bar
Naked Beauty Bar caters to those that like their nail art on the minimalist side. The artists at this Dundas West salon excel in prints and can do anything from marbled designs to camo. If you want something a little more exciting, their geometric creations are also top notch.
