#MadeinDC Business Highlight - Varnish Lane

BY: BRYN MOLLOY

This week MITD's local business pick is Varnish Lane.

Varnish Lane is a waterless luxury nail care salon that uses all locally made all-natural products.

Varnish Lane's manicure and pedicures are done without soaking hands or feet in water, instead using a series of creams, sprays, and by wrapping hands and feet in hot towels. Mom & daughter owners Carolyn & Lauren, and their partner Charles Stebbins, claim waterless nail care is the future and beneficial because there is less risk for infection, its eco-friendly saving 10gallons of water per nail service, and it prevents chipping.

Varnish Lane has transformed the notion of customer service in the nail salon world, stocking iPad minis at every chair, providing 500 polishes to choose from, as well as serving free Prosecco, coffee and tea. It is also metro accessible, located a block away from the Redline Friendship Heights metro stop. 

Varnish Lane is open Tuesday-Friday 10am- 7pm, Saturday 9am-5pm, Sunday 10am-4pm and is closed on Mondays.
