Nails Nails Nails in North Conway, NH
I know I can’t speak for everyone but I am a stickler for finding a good and affordable nail salon.
One great way to pamper yourself is to get a mani-pedi or whatever your preference or gender is. It’s always nice to have clean and neat fingers and toes and not talons!
There are several nail salons in the North Conway area but here is my top choice!
Zen Nail Spa is owned and run by a married couple from Fryeburg, Maine. They do great work and are very welcoming. They do all of the typical spa treatments for regular prices so it’s not too expensive. Their space is clean and homey and you will feel relaxed and happy! They do accept walk-ins but remember it’s just the two of them, so it may be better to call ahead. A side note, they do have their dogs in the shop but they are extremely sweet and well behaved. If you’re a dog person like me than this is the place for you!

Right in North Conway is Be Well Studios. They are a collaborative holistic health and wellness center with a plethora of holistic health services, yoga classes, workshops, studios, and an independently owned natural foods, market/cafe/deli/bakery. The space is located right in The Local Grocer and is a beautiful space.
Be Well Studios is a great one stop for all of your holistic, relaxation and mental health needs.
Don’t think of yoga and mental health and balance as a job-it’s your vacation and you should treat your body with the rest and healing it needs from the stress of your every day life!
