If living through a pandemic made you more aware of safety, you’re not alone. Put those worries aside at Haven Nail Studio, and just let yourself be pampered. Natalie Bolden and Kaitlin Casper’s entrepreneurial spirit and an interest in raising the bar in clean beauty led them to leave their corporate jobs to enroll in nail school. They opened Haven Nail Studio in 2019, a soothing sanctuary in the heart of Edina’s France Avenue shopping district.

Haven offers gentle, waterless nail care services, which they prefer for several reasons: longevity of manicure, less bacteria and better for the environment. Bolden and Casper like to say that sustainability and social responsibility is like the cherry on top of their business. Beyond the advantages of going waterless, they also screen their products for harmful ingredients and use hospital-grade sanitation practices for a cleaner and safer experience.

Haven is happy to host bachelorette and bridal parties—they suggest booking a few weeks in advance. Looking for a little something extra for your bridesmaids? Pick up some of their Haven Cuticle Oil as the perfect little gift; it’s a collaboration with Romi Apothecary, a local plant-powered beauty brand, and will leave your friends’ fingers and toes in tip-top shape.
