Getting pampered and primped comes at a price, but the alternative (dingy nail bars with dodgy equipment) can make you feel like you’re putting your health on the line. But with the opening of Me & T Studio in midtown Toronto, affordable and healthy beauty services are now a gorgeous reality.
Opened by Shawna Rao, a registered critical care nurse with 15 years of experience practicing in Canada and the U.S., Me & T Studio is the kind of clean and stylish salon you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine. The gray, pink and black decor is modernist and sleek, while the attention paid to hygiene and cleanliness is unmistakable. There are no spray jet tubs or jars of used nail files here; only ceramic soaking tubs, and you’re free to take your nail buffer and file home with you after the treatment.
Whether you’re looking for a standard polish job, custom colour blending or nail art (seriously, these technicians can actually paint a portrait on your nails), each manicure and pedicure comes with a complimentary paraffin wax treatment. Me & T is also renowned for its lash extension services that use the NovaLash and Xtreme Lashes brands as well as custom spray tanning that’s done discreetly by hand in a private room and customized to your needs.
The cherry on top: The extensive complimentary candy selection at reception that only serves to sweeten your beauty deal.
Me & T Studio is located at 1568 Yonge St., Toronto.
