What is Nails Y’all?

Nails Y’all is a one-woman show: it’s just me, Meghann, hand-painting designs onto your natural nails. I’m a cartoonist who loves drawing tiny things in tiny boxes.

Where are you located?

I take appointments at Paloma Botanical Beauty Parlour in Austin, TX. The salon, which also offers skincare, waxing, and massage, is located at 4500 Mueller Blvd, suite 1005. You will find us at the base of the Mosaic condominiums, across from the Thinkery.

How do I book? Do you take walk-ins?

I take appointments Tuesday-Saturday. No walk-in’s, please. Please click on the “Book” tab to come get fancy!

How much does nail art cost?

Every appointment starts with a consultation; we can go over the pricing specifics and any other questions you might have. You’ll select a manicure ($20-$45) with the option of long-lasting gel polish ($15) and nail art ($3-$7 per nail). For service details and pricing, please visit www.palomabeauty.com.

Are my nails too short?

No way, girl! I’ve done BABY NAILS. There is no reason why your tiny nails shouldn’t look ahhh-mazing! Whether you bite ‘em, pick ‘em, or just can’t grow ‘em, I can make them fancy.

How do I choose my design?

Girl, this is your world! Did you find something you LOVE on Pinterest or Tumblr? Bring me the photo and we can incorporate elements into your own custom design. Or you can choose from a wide selection of Nails Y’all original designs! (P.S. I have so much glitter.) My nail art is 100% hand-painted! No stickers, stamps, or stencils here.

How long will it take?

Original, hand-painted, customized nail art takes time. Please allow about 2 hours for an appointment with nail art. (If you select an intricate design, require a gel soak-off, and/or choose a more deluxe manicure, expect a longer appointment.)

How long will my mani last?

That depends. Nail art using regular polish will last as long as regular polish typically lasts you. I do use a great topcoat that keeps your nails extra-fresh. If you opt for gel polish, you can expect 10-14 days with normal wear.

There are a few ways for you to extend the life of your mani: use gloves when doing dishes, hydrate with a good cuticle oil, and reapply a thin coat of topcoat a few days in, making sure to cap the tips.

Does Nails Y’all do parties?

YES!! Birthday, bachelorette, wedding, girls’ night in, corporate, kiddo—you provide the girls + booze, I provide everything else! Click on the “Parties + Events” tab for more info.

Do you do acrylics?

Nah, girl. I work with your natural nails. But if you love the length I’ll be happy to paint on your existing acrylics.

Do you do pedicures?

Currently, it’s fingers-only.
