Spotlight – Sour Apple Nail Bar – 03.28.11

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

Congratulations to Naomi! This contest is now closed.

Enter The Sour Apple Nail Bar & Tanning Lounge, nestled in a new and trendy neighborhood of Pitt Meadows and you will discover a salon with a big-city feel and a whole lot of girly touches.  With strong nods to Marilyn and Audrey, Sour Apple oozes a classy and sexy atmosphere.  Famous quotes and pictures of Hollywood glamour girls line the walls and you instantly get the feel that taking the time to pamper yourself is both acceptable, and strongly encouraged.

What started as an empty space was brought to life by the Owner, Diana and the Director, Rachel, friends from esthetics school 13 years prior.  They both loved the location and saw an opportunity to bring a trendy salon to the neighborhoods of Pitt Meadows.  With years of experience in the industry, Rachel not only manages the salon, but provides many of the esthetic services.

Opened in February of 2010, The Sour Apple Nail Bar does so much more than just cater to your nails and need for vitamin D.  From fingers and toes, to facials and waxing, the cleverly named services are widespread.  Need a “Toe-tal” Experience, “Maniqu-Her” or Breakfast at Tiffany’s facial?  You’ll find them here.

Sour Apple boasts a truly unique space that is contemporary and fun, with lots of clean, crisp whites, pretty chandeliers and hints of vibrant purple throughout.  Their funky, spacious pedicure area lends itself perfectly for private parties, which are offered for weddings, stagettes, birthdays and more.  You can plan a Princess or Teen Diva Party or attend one of their very popular Botox parties (the next one is March 31).  Another fun option is to join Sour Apple’s Book Club.  Pairing beauty and books? Such a fun and unique idea!

Some of the great products used throughout the salon include SkinCeuticals, which are used for all of the facials.  Essie, Shellac and Bio-Sculpt gel are available for manicures and pedicures.  Sour Apple also carries a select assortment of jewelry made by local designers and has a small boutique with clothes and accessories for sale.

You can check the website for monthly specials and if you come into Sour Apple on your birthday, whatever age you are turning, you will receive that percentage off.  Turning 40?  Get 40% off your service!  Happy Birthday to you!

We are excited to send one of our lucky readers to this posh space for a divine “Toe-tal” Experience which includes everything you’d expect from a fabulous pedicure, along with your choice of a cooling clay masque or a warm paraffin treatment. Please leave a note below to be entered to win. Winner will be announced on April 11, 2011.

    Being a former Esthetician I can say with confidence that Sour Apple is by far the BEST Spa in the Pitt Meadows/Maple Ridge area. Fabulous staff, great atmosphere, exceptionally clean and oh soooo relaxing.
