Essential Nail Spa has been the premier location for hand and foot pampering since 2005. We  are proud to be one of Chicago’s top rated salons.

From the amazing “non-chip” manicure to our signature “Essential” manicure and pedicure, our focus is to make you feel and look great.

We don’t use strong chemicals, drills or blades.

We produce healthy, beautiful hands and feet using the finest products on the market.

Here is what some of our clients say:

  • “They do a great job with your nails.. What I love more than the terrific nail job is the very friendly atmosphere. The second time I went there everybody remembered my name.”
  • “After trying 3 nail salons in search of a decent pedicure. I tried Essential,  my girlfriend’s nail spa. Finally, a great pedicure, and  they don’t use the blade to remove dry skin.”
  • “Essential Nail Spa is fabulous. It is welcoming, incredibly clean, and I’ve never had a bad experience.” “This place is slightly pricier, but it’s worth every single penny. Everything is great! The non-chip gel manicure, the beverages and snacks, the service, the ambiance.”
