Best nail salons in Hong Kong
1. Ooh La La Nails
This little salon in Wan Chai is all about beautifully executed nail art and manicures. They specialise in Russian Manicures, which is when the entire cuticle is removed to create a larger and more appealing space for the design. We love how long their work lasts and the fact that the nail artists are so precise.
