Show Off Your Style By Visiting a Nail Art Salon in Austin, TX

We’re not like the average nail salon you’ll find in a strip mall. Our friendly team treats each of our customers’ nails like a new canvas. From designing geometric patterns to polka dots, below are the nail art services we offer.

Soak Off/Removal

Before we design the nails of your dreams, we first need to make sure we’re working with a clean slate. So, if you currently have gel polish, shellac, or acrylic on your nails, we ask that you book a soak off/removal service with us before getting to the fun part of nail art.

Gel & Lacquer Manicures

From a gel polish mani with simple art that lasts 1.5 hours to a six-hour gel and custom art session that can include rhinestones and character art, we offer a wide range of gel and lacquer manicures for various budgets.

Gel Extensions

Gel extensions are an excellent option if you want something more forgiving than acrylic, requires less maintenance, and is easier to remove. Whether you’re itching for a classic French tip nail design or want something more unique like a tortoiseshell or galaxy pattern, our team can custom design your gel extensions.

Acrylic Extensions

Applying and removing acrylic frequently can be damaging to nails, which is why we offer manicure services to fill in the acrylic polish already on your nails to help with preservation. Once we’ve tidied up your nails, we’ll proceed to perform nail art according to the package you choose. The nail art we can offer you includes nail charms, encapsulated glitter, and lettering, among many others.


Overlays involve applying acrylic to your natural nails without adding length. We’ll turn your natural nails into a beautiful shape and tidy up your cuticles before applying Japanese gel polish. Then, pick the kind of nail art you’d like—from foil to negative space and portraits, our nail artists can perform practically any request.


Nail art isn’t just for hands. Enjoy soaking your feet in our special Cute bath bombs. After we trim, shape, and paint your nails, we’ll move on to designing your toenail artwork. We can perform the simple artwork of your choosing, including stripes, dots, chrome, and geometric patterns.

Do you still have lingering questions about nail art? We’ve rounded up some of the most common inquiries our clients have.

Brown nail polish shades are popular in 2021 in both matte and glitter varieties. Even Oprah Daily weighed in on the brown nail polish wave of 2021 trends for nail colors. We’re finding that people love the white tip style but with brown colors. 

On the opposite end of the spectrum, bold pink nail polish is trending. If hot pinks are a little too much for your taste, perhaps a light blue nail polish is more your style. And if that’s still too much, you’ll be happy to know that natural colors are also trending in 2021.

Nail trends for 2021 include almond-shaped nails, organically shaped nail art, velvet nails (a combination of glitter and metallic polish), and indie nails. Indie nails, you ask? You’ve likely seen this 2021 nail trend around—it involves designing each nail differently. For example, one nail might have swirls, another dots, and others various checkered designs.

Graphic nail art is another 2021 trend. The bold graphic designs often encompass the indie nail style since each nail typically has its own pattern, but this trend is recognizable for its contrasting colors and sharp geometric patterns.

How do you wear nail art?

Nail art is like an accessory that you carry around with you for weeks. When choosing the nail art to wear, it’s important to consider if you want the design for a specific event, a fashion statement, or general nail art to express your personality. 

Wearing nail art with rings and bracelets is an excellent option since it helps draw people’s attention to your nails. You can choose from simple, more elegant designs to detailed portraits and nail bling.

Which nail polish is used for nail art?

While you can technically use any kind of nail polish for nail art, we prefer Japanese gels. Japanese gels are ideal for nail art because they contain cosmetic grade pigments. That means that with only one coat of paint, your nail art design will have bold colors without showing any of the nail polish beneath it.

Japanese gel is also a long-lasting type of nail polish, as it lasts around one month. Therefore, you’ll likely be ready for your next manicure long before your Japanese gel nail art begins chipping.

How can I do nail art at home without tools?

Whether you’re looking for nail art in Austin, TX, or live on the east coast, our nail polish collection offers you the chance to bring Cute into your home. By using our high-quality nail polish, you can practice becoming a nail art designer without any special tools.

That said, having some kind of tool is useful when making nail art. We recommend looking around your house for a bobby pin or toothpick to help with your designs.
