Katie Shields, founder of Mylkbar Eco Nails + Beauty, has always had a passion for self-care with a side of artistic expression which can be seen in the chic, Palm Beach inspired décor throughout the salon. As a frequent business traveler, and beauty connoisseur, Katie spent most of her career on a plane. After all that travel, Katie realized the need for more available self-care concepts where people can go and not worry about chemicals or fumes.
When Katie & her husband became pregnant with their first child, she became even more focused on the impact that toxins, chemicals, and fumes could have on an unborn fetus. Using knowledge she gained while in the healthcare industry, she created a concept that proved nontoxic self-care is not selfish, and upscale salon experiences should be fabulous not unsafe!
Katie’s flagship salon is one of the first in the U.S.A. to implement a 5-free or better promise: any nail polish used is free of formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor. The same standards apply to their skincare products -- keeping it as natural as possible.
Mylkbar is located in a beautiful, airy studio that embodies beach vibes and all the feels of a relaxing vacation destination. Complete with bright wallpaper and leaf motifs, surfing videos playing on repeat, and rattan hanging chairs -- Mylkbar is lovingly dubbed as the “most instagrammable” nail salon based on the décor alone. The name Mylkbar pays homage to the beach-inspired products used daily – every service incorporates the use of coconut milk and coconut oil.
A free service upgrade to any listener. Service upgrades include luxury polish upgrade, essential oil treatment, or epsom salt detox soak!
