We first went to CT Nails III in West Hollywood way back in 2010. Early nail art aficionado Alexa Chung introduced us to this place and it’s been our L.A. nail art staple ever since. Not to be confused with all the other CT Nail locations in Los Angeles, CT Nails III is where you need to be for one reason: Peter. Peter’s been there for 16 years and creates the most insane airbrush nail looks you can imagine. Unlike the ratchet airbrush nails you see most places, Peter’s are on-trend — smiley faces, tuxedos etc. — and if you don’t see a look you like on display, he will work with you to customize something sick. We just said “Disney” and he got to work with a blue glitter fade “for a fairy tale look” with Minnie Mouse bows and fireworks and such. Peter is always excited to create a new nail look, and really gets into it. The location is not fancy, but who cares? It’s 30 bucks.
