From Akoi to Zio: The 10 best nail salons in Bergen County


New Jersey is home to a lot of nail salons. To be exact, there are 1,756! A 2015 study revealed that for every McDonald’s location in the Garden State, there are a whopping six nail salons. With so many to choose from, we thought we’d make things a bit easier and hand pick (yes, that was a manicure joke) some of the best. Here are 10 of Bergen County’s best spots to get a mani-pedi.

1. Akoi Nails in Garfield
Akoi specializes in 3D nail designs and even adds Swarovski crystals to their nail art!

2. Studio M Nails in Westwood
Like the look of nail art but don’t want to commit to acrylics? Studio M Nails is your spot. They can even give you the reverse French manicure that Lauren Conrad loves to rock.

3. Billy Nguyen in Hackensack
You’ve probably seen Billy’s work on Instagram (@billy820nails), considering he has 88.9K followers. Although he’s currently not accepting any new clients, his nail art is absolutely amazing.

4. Fine Touch Nails Salon in Hackensack
If you’re not one of the lucky ladies already locked into Billy’s clientele, you can still book an appointment with one of the other artists at the salon he works at, Fine Touch Nails.
