The Sand Spa team, which has built a loyal following for its massages and other spa services in North Manhattan Beach, has opened a new full-service stand-alone nail spa down the street known as Polish by Sand Spa.

"We've witnessed first-hand the demand for a high quality nail salon in Manhattan Beach, and have continuously heard from our clientele that they were in need of another option," said co-founder Gretchen Tiernan. "We want to continue to evolve and grow not just for our brand, but for our customers. Providing more spaces that promote self care is a major focus for us."

Tiernan and her partner Megan Richardson first opened Sand Spa in North Manhattan Beach in 2014. (They have since added a second Sand Spa location in Hermosa Beach.) Polish by Sand Spa, the new stand-alone nail salon, is located at 3219 Highland Ave. in Manhattan Beach, just two blocks down from the main Sand Spa location.

The nail spa features three different organic lines as well as over one thousand colors to choose from. In keeping with the Sand Spa philosophy, the nail salon will feature three vegan, cruelty-free, fair trade brands: RGB, Sparituals, and Zoya.

The interior is designed with a luxurious and calming palette, featuring ombre plush chairs and iridescent spa bowls. “Atmosphere is everything," said Tiernan. "We want women to
feel like they’re on a luxurious vacation when they pop in.”

Polish by Sand Spa Nail Boutique is located at 3219 Highland Ave. in Manhattan Beach. It is open from 9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., seven days a week. Phone: 310-79-NAILS.
