Known for their outrageous nail designs, Glamour Clawz is one to check out if nail extensions are your thing. At the salon, they claim long nails to be their religion so you’ll definitely be in safe hands if you’re on the lookout for an intense renovation session for your very own claws. On their menu, they offer the basic acrylic extensions with nail art, or if you’re feeling adventurous, go for their mystery design option.
