Maryam Naderi introduced Houston to the nontoxic manicure in 2016 with Paloma, the very first salon in the city to ditch the chemicals for five-free nail polish (formulas that contain no formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate, resin, or camphor). Every square inch of Paloma is clean and committed to Naderi’s vision of wellness. There’s no acrylic or UV lights to speak of, and pedicures are administered over sleek stone basins instead of plastic bins. For those in a rush, the Quick Fix manicure is the way to go, but if you’ve come to indulge, try the Standard, an eighteen-step nail service that comes with an exfoliation treatment, massage, and your pick of Weleda products.
