Tip & Toe Nail Bar takes the experience of getting your nails done to a whole different level. A brand new concept for Christchurch, Tip & Toe exists as a pop-up store within Mod’s Hair in Merivale, (the only nail bar within a salon in Christchurch) working closely together to provide their customers a top-notch service. Why not get your hair blow-dried while getting your nails done, ‘cos time is precious right? The team at Tip & Toe can even move around the hair salon with you if you happen to be getting a lengthier treatment for your locks.

While the luxury of getting your nails done by a professional is at the heart of it all here, so is sustainability and wellbeing. They have sourced the only five-star-health-rated gel in the world, and use Smith & Cult lacquer, which is an eight free formulation free of a bunch of nasties found in your ordinary nail polish. They are also the only nail bar in the city using a 100% vegan Bio Sculpture Gel.

Tip & Toe’s qualified nail art and extension professionals can guide you in choosing from the latest trends, offering look books with seasonal collections and colour consultations to make sure you find a style that’s right for any occasion. There’s also a bunch of variety in the nail and sticker art front, choose a feature nail or go all in with a full hand of nails that pop.

Bring a friend and catch up while spoiling yourself a little, enjoy a coffee or a bubbly while at it, and leave feeling refreshed and beautiful. Or perhaps make it a mother daughter date – that’s right, Tip & Toe offer a Kid-I-Cure finished off with an organic, water-soluble polish. Is there anything much cuter than that?
