Nail Care & Manicures/paper wrap manicure


Hello, do you know of a salon in the Sacramento region that offers this method?  I loved it and I used to enjoy the Juliette paper wrap in the Lafayette Calif area. Now I'm allergic to all the acrylic products and miss my beautiful nails. If you don't know, can you me refer me to anyone? I know the method is still taught at my local cosmetology program, but  I can't find a salon that offers it. Thank you

I'm afraid I can't help. I've been searching for someone who is experienced in the Juliette method, myself, for years. I would love to learn the technique.

However, there are other options available for you. Several gel products on the market are touted as hypoallergenic, particularly BRISA by CND. CND has a salon referral page on their website at From there, you can search for salons that provide a variety of services featuring CND products. You may want to call and inquire about BRISA gel or SHELLAC manicures.
