As elegant as a palace, Nail Palazzo opened in June next to Chicago Fire in Palladio at Broadstone in Folsom. Custom-designed in a contemporary style, the pale taupe, gray and black motif invites both women and men to relax and enjoy a professional manicure, pedicure or waxing.
Owner Tommy Le grew up in Stockton. He owned a nail salon in Rancho Cordova from 2002-2005, where his sister Kim Le worked. Today, Kim owns Le Chateau Nail Salon in Town Center in El Dorado Hills. After some years working in the Bay Area Tommy decided to open Nail Palazzo in Folsom.
Nail Palazzo has 14 manicure stations plus a four-person manicure bar. The manicure stations are placed to provide privacy for customers. There are 20 pedicure chairs. In the VIP room there are six pedicure chairs. A private room is used for waxing services.
Hygiene is paramount, said Tommy. “We have set policies and regulations that go beyond what the State Board of Cosmetology requires,” he explained. “Disposable files and buffers are used for manicures. Disposable bowl liners and pumice stones are used for pedicures. All implements are sanitized before and after use. The pedicure chairs are pipeless and jetless, which prevents the flow of water into the air line and eliminates the chance of water jet bacteria.”
Tommy does not have contract manicurists and pedicurists. Everyone who works at Nail Palazzo is an employee.
Besides individual appointments, the VIP room can be reserved for parties of six. Customers are welcome to bring food and wine.
The nail bar seats four. Kim said more men are having their nails cleaned and buffed for their jobs or for special occasions. At the nail bar men can watch TV and have a drink while the manicurists work on their nails. The nail bar is also suitable for couples.
Tommy said he plans to be part of the community. He has contacted Oak Meadow Elementary School PTA, Folsom High School Music Boosters, Oak Ridge High School and also the playmakers organization, and will make donations to these programs, he said.
Walk-ins are welcome at Nail Palazzo, 310 Palladio Parkway in Folsom. To schedule an appointment call (916) 983-2895. Special discounts are available for children and students younger than 17 years for manicures and pedicures.
