Very clean nail salon?

I was just diagnosed with diabetes and although I don’t have any symptoms yet in my circulation or skin, I need to be extremely careful about pedicures going forward. Can anyone recommend a place where they trust the staff and management to maintain an extremely hygienic working environment? Huge plus if they use mostly green polishes etc. I really can’t stand that chemical smell that most salons have. I am willing to pay more but every place seems suspicious to me now! Thanks.

I highly recommend Natural Nails Plus on Grand Ave in Oakland.  They are very, very hygienic, super covid safe, do not do acrylic nails so there is not those chemical smells, and podiatrists and doctors recommend them to their patients as they know how to care for the special needs of many feet conditions.  Very friendly as well.

Try calling Natural Nails Plus on Grand Ave in Oakland. The owner is very COVID safe, the salon is very clean and she is particular about the products they use.

Hi! I think you would have a good experience at Simply Green on Grand in Oakland. All green polishes and a clean place in general. You can even request to book an appointment online and they will respond quickly. I also really enjoy their reflexology pedicure which is basically the best foot massage I have ever had followed by a pedicure.

Check out Nailbar on Park Street in Alameda. Kathy (the owner) is very meticulous about cleanliness. She uses stainless steel bowls and sanitizes everything, and offers several "organic" polishes. The salon is fairly new, so it feels fresh and it isn't smelly. In terms of Covid safety, masks are required and the door is always open for ventilation. She's currently the only one doing services there, so only one client is in the shop at a time.
