"We always think about what we digest into our bodies, food wise, but do we ever think about the products we put on?" Carol Ann is the owner of Can Can Parleur in LA, an organic nail salon with affordable prices so that "no one has an excuse to subject themselves to harmful chemicals that can be found in regular nail shops". I had the pleasure of meeting Carol Ann and her nail artist, Mo, a few weekends ago and while I've been to many nail spas, I never been to an organic one. Of course I had questions in my head upon entering, such as the type of products they use and the treatments provided that would guarantee a safer experience. I also immediately thought, upon entering, that this place was pretty darn cute.
I was greeted immediately and given a drink, hot neck towel, and had the most delightful conversation with Carol Ann. She wanted to know about me, the blogging world, and was happy to answer all my questions with a smile. It was like catching up with a relative I haven't seen in awhile. You can't find that hospitality easily anymore, that's for sure! The salon was started by Carol Ann because she was frustrated by the lack of safety provided by nail shops around LA. "Where can people go to get their nails done that's chemical free? Not just those who are pregnant but how about those fighting cancer and doing chemotherapy?" She had found a question that needed an answer and that is how Can Can Parleur was created.
After our chat, I was sat down in a comfy chair and was given a choice of organic nail polishes, but I trusted Carol Ann enough to pick out a color that she knew I would not typically wear. I have no regrets about the pretty teal she ended up choosing for me. Mo and I quickly bonded over our love for food. It was such a homey atmosphere and one of the best experiences I've ever had. I left with a smile and hugged both women, wishing they were my cool relatives that I could see during family reunions. Needless to say, I'll be back and have been recommending this place to all my LA locals. If you're going to spend money, you might as well spend it knowing that the quality of care, service, and the actual product you're putting on, is worth it.
Thank you Carol Ann and Mo for such an amazing experience!
