Having an express manicure or spring nail art in one of the girly nail bars nestled in the Marais is the perfect way to celebrate the arrival of the warmer days in the capital. Zoom on three very popular Parisian addresses, to visit as often as you like.

1/ Gloss’up
This nail bar is conveniently located near Nanashi, the bentos restaurant, and designer Valentine Gauthier’s shop. Spread over two floors, it has two spaces, one dedicated to makeup, the other to manicure. Gloss’up is THE nail art specialist, and never hesitates to offer “collections” according to the seasons or the holidays, like Valentine’s Day. We also appreciate being able to follow each member of the team on Instagram. A nice way to locate nail arts that you will adopt this summer!
