Think about the last time you were really able to treat yourself – Something along the lines of a soothing Milk and Honey pedicure with a complimentary glass of wine. A “me-day” with 1,500 fabulous color options to choose from for your perfect manicure, whether it be regular style, gel, acrylic nails, or dip. Think of a nourishing, waterless manicure with your choice of UV Protective Collagen or Phyto Collagen Gloves, moisturizing your hands after a busy day. Imagine a smile on your face as you sit back with a friend enjoying a hot stone massage with a relaxing cream or lotion.

If you can’t remember the last time you were treated in luxury like this, then it’s time you head on over to Bella Nails & Spa on Highway 54 in Lutz. “The salon is absolutely loving, the staff is nice the establishment is new, and the vibe is ever young and light,” happy Bella Nails customer Vicki remarks. “Also I didn’t mention they offer an endless amount of beverages including WINE!! Lol.” And it’s true – the royal treatment at Bella Nails includes more than just providing wonderful nail services. The nail spa is also proud to serve complimentary beer, juice, water, wine, and soft drinks to help their customers relax. Whether you choose to walk in or make an appointment, or whether you’d prefer a simple manicure or a bold set of acrylics, Bella Nails & Spa has got you covered. 

Take it from those who enjoy excellent treatment when getting their nails done! Roseanne W. says, “This is a 5 star spa! The place is immaculately clean, the technicians are expertly trained and everything is state of the art.” This proves true, seeing how Bella Nails & Spa built such a great reputation at their former location of six years, that they had to relocate to a new unit in 2018…which is just a couple doors down!

That’s right, Bella Nails is still conveniently located at the Sun Lake Plaza, but in a new facility, with 3 times the space! This gives the caring staff more room to accommodate more guests and provide the services they love in even more luxury. As Bella Nails’ owner Andy says, “Everything is brand new in here,” from top-of-the-line brands like OPI, A New Revolution, CND, and Chisel, to the state of the art massage chairs, tables, and décor – the nail spa knows how to treat their customers right. And in taking care of their customers, Bella Nails, in the spirit of gratefulness, has recently been able to give back to front line/health care workers in the area, by offering doctors, EMTs, nurses, police officers, fire fighters, etc., a complimentary classic pedicure as a thank you for their services to the community. This special, which took place in June, helped many front-line workers come in and take a load off, knowing that their hard work was much appreciated by the local community. In fact, the thank you special received such great feedback that the nail spa might offer it again once the pandemic ends.

And just to give you an idea of the true variety of manis and pedis that Bella Nails offers, check out this review written by Francheska G: “Loved this place, went in for a pedicure walked out smelling like Starbucks lol….I tried the coffee pedicure and yummmmm it smelled so good my skin felt great.” Sonia, another satisfied customer of Bella Nails, said: “Just love getting the powder dip there are so many pretty colors!!!”

Indeed, Bella Nails acquires high quality equipment and products, including 1500 different nail polish colors! Kaitlyn P. commented, “I love going to Bella nails, my nails last a long time. No chipping or breaks. Pedicures feel amazing, love the chairs.” Pedicures like the Coffee pedicure, for instance, include a “coffee-infused bath,” with a honey and coffee sugar scrub, a cappuccino mask, and a relaxing massage with coffee-infused lotion and hot stones. Another delightful pedicure is the Milk and Honey, which comes with a honey sugar scrub in a calming bath with warm milk. Other signature pedicures at Bella Nails are the BIR-dicure with instilled beer, the “bubbly” volcano pedicure, the Black Charcoal pedicure, the Refresh pedicure, the Bamboo Charcoal, the Cucumber Splash, the Mango Candy, and of course the regular pedicure.

While Bella Nails believes that “Beauty starts from the toes,” the nail spa also succeeds in providing their customers with top-notch manicure services, ranging from beautiful and simple manis to trendy SNS-Dipping Powder. They also have gel nails, acrylics, waterless manicures, and VOESH “Mani-in-a-box” treatments available. Nail enthusiast Laurie said, “I love going to Bella Nails! I go to Kevin, who is amazing! I can show him a picture of nails I like from Pinterest, and he can always duplicate!” And if you happen to be in the mood to get your eyebrows done while you’re at it, Bella Nails also offers a variety of waxing services, from full-face to Bikini and more.

In addition to following CDC guidelines, Bella Nails maintains a very clean facility, using all disposable kits for manis and pedis services as well as thoroughly cleaning all tools and surfaces. While they are not taking group reservations at the moment, the nails spa does have private sections available for events. Currently, Bella Nails’ hours are 9:30-7:30 on weekdays, 11-7 on Saturdays, and 11-5 on Sundays.

As a result of the many stellar services, the top-notch equipment, the beautiful facility, and the awesome rewards program, Bella Nails goers believe the spa is the best around, and some long-term fans like Rylee can’t “imagine going anywhere else.” She said, “I’ve watched them grow so much and I’m happy I found a place that really invests in and cares about their clients.” So next time you’re in the need of getting your nails professionally buffed or you simply want to relax in an elegant atmosphere with caring people who listen to what you want, you’ll know where to go!
