I'm Courtney — a Boston-based nail 

technician specializing in custom nail

your nails look dope af.



 hand painted nail art 

I provide a full service manicure that focuses on maintaining & improving the health of my clients' natural nails. I start all manicures with high-end cuticle care using a gentle e-file technique which allows me to buff away the cuticle and any dry, calloused skin. All nail art is hand painted using high-end Japanese gel polish. 

Manicures generally last 3 - 4 weeks if properly cared for between appointments.

I offer two tiers of nail art as well as bridal services (bride only). 

Brides, please contact me directly.

All pricing available upon request.

coming soon!


at this time I am NOT taking new regular clients.

Current clients may request appointments via Vagaro

new client wait list:

When I have an opening for a new client, I contact the next person on my wait list who's schedule matches my opening, to bring them in as a new client.

If I have any cancellations that I am unable to fill, I give first priority to my wait list to fill that spot for a one-time appointment (cancellation openings are posted on instagram stories).

Please be aware that the wait list has over 200 people on it.


about courtney.

A few of my favorite things: summer, ice cream, red wine, sarcasm & banter, card games, podcasts, crafting and painting the tiniest canvasses know to human kind (nails)! I'm a Boston area native and currently live downtown. 

Nail art started as hobby for me—an outlet for my artistic inclinations. I created an instagram account (@courtdoespolish) and after 5 years of doing my own nails, I decided to take the plunge. I left a 12 year marketing career to pursue my dream of becoming a nail technician, and that's how The Nail Art Babe was born. Now I'm bring my badass art skills to your nails! 

I love meeting kind people from all different walks of life - races, religions, genders, and orientations, etc. Whoever you are, I can't wait to get to know you while making your nails look fabulous!
