Base Coat Nail Design in Denver



Seven months pregnant with her fourth child, Tran Wills went to get a mani/pedi at her local salon of choice. But when she walked in and inhaled the scent of the toxic chemicals, her nose started bleeding. Wills made a quick exit, and well ahead of the baby a business idea was born. Base Coat Nail Salon is a charming, nontoxic enterprise in an artsy, calm environment. (To preserve a toxin-free space, Base Coat doesn’t offer gel or acrylic nail services.) The salon offers two lines of environmentally friendly polishes as well as a generous pour of rosé to sip during your treatment and a female-artist-only art collection that rotates monthly.
