/ About

we’ve reimagined the nail salon by merging sophistication with a dynamic client experience

We deliver high quality nail and beauty services while providing a dynamic client experience. Every detail from interior design, customer service, sanitation protocols, products, music and scents was curated to enhance your comfort and satisfaction. We understand the stress and time limitations involved in work-life balance, so we strive to provide a 5-star experience in a time-conscious manner. 

With our 30+ years of combined experience, we – the founders of ONYX – have our sights set on advancement and innovation. While the beauty industry in general has continued to evolve, the world of nail salons has yet to move forward.

ONYX, established in 2019, wants to change this. Prioritizing safety and comfort of both technicians and clients, ONYX is a gender-neutral, sophisticated environment that utilizes technology and creativity to deliver the best possible experience. we believe the best companies continue to learn, adapt and evolve to the needs of its team and clients.

I built ONYX because I recognized a void in the market for a sophisticated, experience-based and design-orientated nail salon. An environment that was gender neutral and welcoming to our diverse clientele while providing the cleanest and safest workplace for our staff. Our goal is to continue pushing the boundaries of a typical nail salon experience

/ Health & Safety

We go above and beyond to protect your health
and safety


For the safety of our clients and employees, each manicure station was custom built with a dust and air filtration vent system. This system prevents the inhalation of harmful dust and fumes, creating a healthier nail experience.

Single use filer and buffers

Each of our nail files and buffers are single-use and come pre-packaged for client safety. After a manicure, you’re welcome to take your set home.

Sanitation Protocols - tools

Our tools are disinfected and sanitized using medical grade cleaners and disinfectants that utilize patented Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®) technology. 

Sanitation Protocols: Pedicures

Pedicure basins are sanitized using the industry standard sterilant and high-level disinfectant. After disinfecting basins for a minimum of 5 minutes, the basins are prepped for the new client with a one-time-use plastic liner. These procedures ensure the absolute highest level of sanitation.

Vanity Sink

Our sink is designed to not only enhance your experience with our Scrub Bar, but provides additional sanitary support, as outlined by BodySafe Regulations. Clients are requested to wash their hands with our disinfecting cleansers before their manicure. This often overlooked step helps protect both the technicians and clients.

Pedicure Razors

We avoid many of the commonly recognized pedicure tools. While seemingly effective, many typical razors and “grinder” style tools cause lasting damage to the client’s skin. With that in mind, our pedicures utilize a waterless method and callus-smoothing microdermabrasion tool. This ensures the most effective and healthiest pedicure.
