This is so awesome, I am a huge Sephora junkie and very rarely do I walk out of the store without a purchase. But now add nail art service to the agenda, this is a great idea. I know where I’m getting my mani with nail art this weekend. I will try it out and let you know what I think of this in my weekend blog. So Dolls do you think you want to add this to your shopping agenda?

Sephora Offers a Cool New Nail Service
BY HEATHER MUIR, BEAUTY NEWS EDITOR

Shopping at Sephora just got even more fun. Along with perusing aisles packed with the latest beauty innovations, getting your makeup professionally done, and having your brows groomed, you can now snag a super-cool manicure in the store, too. In response to the huge nail-art trend that we’ve all seen on the runway and on celebrity fingers, Sephora is partnering with XpresSpa to offer nail art—no appointments necessary.

The Sephora Nail Studio Art + Lacquer offers the newest polishes from Sephora by OPI, Illamasqua, Nars, Dior, and Nails Inc., plus hundreds of designs to choose from: Think glittery ombré, animal prints, edgy metallics, and girly florals (some are done using regular polishes; others are achieved with nail stickers). Each design is rated according to level of difficulty so you can watch the manicurists work their magic, and then, if you want, re-create the look at home (you can, of course, purchase all the products as well). It took me a little while to narrow down my design selection. I went with a stars-and-stripes theme using dark navy and white polish, along with two black and silver star nail stickers on my ring fingers (that’s my hand next to my friend’s citrus-themed choice). After 15-minutes, I had intricate, eye-catching nautical nails and a crowd of 10 shoppers surrounding me, asking how they could be next in line. The service starts at $15 for simple designs and goes up to $75 for the most complicated ones. The nail bars are popping up this week in New York City (5 Times Square) and California (San Francisco’s Powell Street), and if there is a demand will roll out in a bunch of other locations across the country.
Would you take a beauty shopping break to have your nails done in Sephora?
