How do I book online?
We've designed our online booking process with you in mind. In other words, we've made it very simple and straightforward. Select the service, date, and time (and manicurist, if you have a favorite) and simply follow the instructions on the screen. We'll have you booked in no time.
What kind of manicures does Paintbox offer?
We offer both polish and gel manicures in a single color or design.
I’m a bit confused by your menu / pricing policy. Can you explain?
In an effort to provide you with the highest level of service, we’ve streamlined our nail design options into a seasonal menu. Our design manicures include one full look in the color of your choice, plus (should you want it) two accent nails in an additional design of your choice. For three looks, there is an additional $30 upgrade fee for gel and $20 for polish.
Our single color manicures are just that. Should you want an accent nail in a second solid color polish we will happily accommodate free of charge. If you would like to add an accent nail with a design, we can easily upgrade your service for an additional $10 for gel and $5 for polish. This includes two nails in the design of your choice.
While we will try our best to accommodate our clients’ wishes during appointment time, specifically selecting accent nail or design manicures during the booking process ensures there will be enough time for you to get the look you want.
If you have any further questions about pricing or options, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How long do services take?
Services range from 15 minutes to an hour and thirty minutes. The time needed for each service is indicated during the booking process.
What if I already have gel on my nails?
For clients with existing gel manicures, please select "Gel Manicure with Gel Removal" (for single color) or "Gel Manicure Design with Gel Removal." Indicating removal at the time of booking ensures we have enough time to properly take off your gel, so your nails stay healthy and strong.
Do you service or remove acrylic or hard gels?
Currently, we do not service or remove acrylic or sculpting gels.
What is a polish change?
A polish change is our express option for when you're in a hurry. It is quite simply as its name implies: a change of polish. This service is not available for clients with gel manicures.
Do you offer pedicures?
Currently we don't offer pedicures, as we are focusing on best-of-the-best colors and designs for your hands.
Can I bring in my own nail art look?
Eleanor Langston, a former beauty editor at national magazines like Cosmopolitan, and Julie Kandalec, our Creative Director and backstage staple at New York Fashion Week, have personally curated our menu of designs. You can customize these looks to suit your style with various color combinations. Our talented manicurists will help guide you through this process!
Can I bring my dog with me?
We love our clients and their pups but unfortunately the health department bars us from accommodating pooches in our studio. We appreciate your understanding.
Can I host an event at Paintbox?
We do host private events at Paintbox. Please email us at email@example.com to speak to an events coordinator.
I want to come with a group of friends. How do I book?
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to book manicures for parties of four or more.
What if I'm late?
Please arrive on time or five minutes early to peruse our nail design lookbook. Should you arrive late, we cannot guarantee your appointment. We encourage you to browse our seasonal menu online prior to your appointment.
