Last December, a new nail spa opened in Hinsdale, and it’s been racking up five-star reviews ever since.
“My vision for Elysian Nail Spa is to be a boutique salon servicing sophisticated clientele,” says owner Teanna Tran. “There’s no better place to do that than Hinsdale.”
Tran started as a manicurist for a large nail salon in the area, and then shortly after was given the opportunity to go into management. That experience inspired her to create her own salon that would exceed customer expectations of what is typically offered at a nail salon. A year before opening the Hinsdale location, Tran went coast to coast to visit numerous salons that she considered trendsetting to research what could set her apart in the area.
So far, she has achieved that.
“The vibe and the experience is everything here at Elysian—from the decor to our custom furniture and the music.”
Inside, the spa is open, bright, and inviting. The chairs for customers for both manicures and pedicures are luxurious and comfortable, and every detail has been addressed. Elysian is a true nail spa—a place where you can relax and feel like you’re being pampered.
“Everything was thought out to create the cool, relaxing feel. A customer can also enjoy a glass or two of wine or champagne before, during, or even after their services,” Tran says.
Guests at Elysian Nail Spa can expect the full slate of services: manicures, pedicures, gel sets, acrylic sets, and waxing. Technicians at the spa are highly trained and considered nail artists by their favorite customers.
“We are obviously in the nail business, but we are also in the hospitality business. At the end of the day, people come for the cause but stay for the feel.”
One of the ways Elysian Nail Spa stays ahead of competition is by knowing and delivering current trends customers want. “Trends are constantly changing such as the color palettes and nail art,” says Tran. Currently, the minimalistic look with a little “oomph” is very popular. “We’ll add a bit of gold or silver foil to soft pale pinks, for example, to make it a little extra special. It’s a fun look to add to your weekly manicure,” she says, adding: “Many customers also follow an array of social media influencers, so we need to stay on top of what’s hot and what’s not in fashion and nail trends.”
Tran and her staff follow Instagram accounts such as @opi, @marianna_hewitt, and @vogue. The spa carries the most popular colors, including Lisbon Wants Moor OPI by OPI and Blanc Arty by YSL, which she describes as “two very cool and clean crisp color for the summer.” In addition to the industry top product lines for nail lacquer, Elysian also carries designer brands such as Chanel, YSL, Dior, and Christian Louboutin.
So if you’re looking for a nail salon that provides the highest level of service to discerning clientele, it’s Elysian Nail Spa.
“We are a high-tech, high-touch salon,” she says. “You can book online or call us. Feel free to follow us and keep up with the latest trends on Instagram @Elysiannailspa.”
