Nail Box #Manicure
#Seoul Hongdae #Nail Recommendations

Do you want to try Korean manicure or nail art? I would highly recommend Nail Box in Hongdae, Seoul. Although there are many nail salons in Korea, Creatrip wanted to give you the name of an adept, trustworthy salon. The Nail Box salon recently became a social media phenomenon, and you can easily hear Korean people buzzing about this place from Instagram and Naver blogs.

Recommended Reasons

  1. The salon owner is genuinely passionate about nail art. When people look for a good nail shop, they usually focus on two things. The first is design and the second is service quality. It's very hard to find somewhere that captures both. Nail Box in Hongdae is one of the few places in Seoul that has both.
  2. Nowadays, the popular nail art design in Korea is attaching cubic diamonds (called Bling Bling design). The Korean nail salon Nail Box not only has a series of gorgeous Korean designs but also has simple designs that Hong Kong and Taiwanese customers like.
  3. When you do nail art, nails get damaged. Nails get weaker and thinner if you cover them with thick plastic cover or manicure. However, Nail Box uses the most advanced type of facilities, which can remove chemicals easily and minimize the damage. Nail Box also does hand massages after the treatment to relieve the fatigue of the hands.

Hongdae Nail Box Photo Review

Hongdae Nail Box is located at the end of the Hongdae district. It is a super high-profile manicure salon near the Sangsu Station. This place is very popular on Korean SNS. Creatrip also decided to partner with Nail Box because of the salon's good reputation among Hongdae locals.

Most of the nail salons are either good at nail art or nail care. They focus on one of the two services. Hongdae Nail Box, however, offers both trendy nail designs and care at the same time. That's why customer satisfaction is very high for this salon. 

In addition to the shiny, gorgeous looking Korean manicure options (I prefer this design), you can also choose the basic design without many details. You can definitely pick the best design that suits your personality at Nail Box.

Every month, the salon owner updates new nail art designs. You can peak Nail Box's designs from their INSTAGRAM(Click!)You may encounter your favorite design!
