Paintbox Nail Studio, NYC
This 1,500-square-foot, manicure-only nail studio is the brainchild of former magazine editor Eleanor Langston. Located in a high-ceilinged SoHo loft, the space was transformed by James Ramsey, of RAAD Studio, who once trained as a NASA engineer and custom crafted many of the salon’s standout elements, including the globe pendant lights and sleek wood bar table, where clients can sit to let their nails dry while sipping iced coffee and champagne.
