Julep

You won’t find cutesy chairs or pinkalicious puff at the Julep salons. What you will find is a sophisticated mommy and me experience with 3-Free nail polishes and only natural nails (no acrylics here) that make going to the nail parlor safer for kiddos and mommies-to-be. Julep makes their own products (psst…and sells them at Ulta!), so they know exactly what’s in there. And they love to provide services to mommy-daughter pairs. Moms can enjoy the Porch Pedi or Mani with shaping, grooming, lotion and a massage, while the little miss gets a simple soak and color. Plan on 30 minutes for a Junior Julep Pedi and 15 minutes for a Junior Julep Mani, and a little longer for each of mom’s services.

Good to Know:Be sure to take advantage of Julep’sMommy Mondays from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. This dream-come-true service lets you get your nails done while someone plays with and entertains your wee one, for no extra charge. It’s a simple pleasure that’s sure to get your week off on the right (newly polished) foot!
