The Beautique by Jessica Peris

Known as the best nail artist in Canberra, Jessica Peris has recently opened her first store front - The Beautique. Upgrading from her home studio to a beautiful space in Franklin, The Beautique is Canberra's ultimate beauty hub. 

What Jess has created is one of the most beautiful spaces I have ever had the pleasure to visit. Beautiful light, Pink Onyx sink, floral wallpaper and all the beauty services you could want. Not only was I lucky enough to be invited to the launch evening in April, but I also was very excited to have Jess do my nails for my wedding, and I want to take you on a little tour of the beautiful space!

Jess started her nail services as a side job to give herself a little bit of money while she studied. Originally located in a little studio in her parents garage, Jess is now one of Canberra's most specialised nail artist. The Beautique by Jessica Peris is not your typical nail or beauty salon. It's a space that promotes creativity, empowerment and all round good vibes. As Jess says, 'it's a space where you’ll feel happy the moment you walk through the door, right up until your next visit' and she is absolutely right. All of the staff that work alongside her are amazing at what they do as well, so you know that no matter who you get, they will do one amazing job. 

Not only can you get an incredible manicure, but The Beautique also offers a number of other beauty services. You can get your basic manicure and pedicure, or you could upgrade it with a luxe soak as well with The Seeke's Calendula + Rose Botanical Soak. Follow it with a nail tidy and foot scrub using either a caffeine or citrus scrub, a relaxing oil massage finished with a hydrating moisturiser and smoothing paraffin foot mask to leave your feet feeling ultra soft and fresh (safe to say that I know what I am having next time I am in!). The Beautique also offers make up services for events, including weddings. As well as waxing and tanning services. Basically, it's your once stop shop for all things beauty. 

You can also shop while you are there, picking up some lovely candles, tea, marshmallows and other beauty products. The Beautique stocks a range of products from Coco Daydream, Deitea, Black Pantry, Courtney + The Babes, Stoned Crystals, Eco Tan, BABE, and Smelly Balls. 

I went in the day before my wedding to get my nails done by Jess because after attending the opening, I honestly couldn't imagine anyone else doing them. The space is so different in the daylight. It feels so fresh and calm. I felt instantly relaxed and welcomed. I played with Kobe while I waited for Jess and had a look at all the beautiful pieces she sells inside and drank some delicious chamomile, apple and cinnamon tea. When we were ready, I showed Jess a design that I had seen and fallen in love with (which was actually from Talia, another member of The Beautique team). Then off she went, creating the most beautiful set of nails I had ever had. I left so in love with my nails and since then I am still dying to go back. My set lasted a couple of weeks and if I hadn't had to ruin them for sport I would have no doubt that they would still be on. I will definitely be going back very soon to get another set done, even if it's just so I can drink some more of that tea and play with Kobe. 

They will also be starting facials in house soon as well. Jess had a flash sale last week to have a facial and I managed to get one of the appointments and I had one of the best facials. Natassia is a new member of the team and will be doing facials at The Beautique soon. They use products from The Seeke, which are completely natural products. They smell amazing and leave your skin feeling amazing as well. I left so relaxed and calm, which is everything you want from a facial. Keep your eyes out for the facials, you will want one of these!

If you are in Canberra and in need of a manicure, wax or tan, you need to look no further than The Beautique. It is the most beautiful nail salon I have ever been to and I can't imagine going anywhere else now. Make sure you head over to The Beautique's Instagram page and check out some of the beautiful nail designs so you can get some inspiration for when you go in. To book in your treatment email

The Beautique by Jessica Peris is open Tuesday – Friday, from 10 am – 8 pm & Saturday from 9 am – 4 pm.

Located at 96/235 Flemington Road, Franklin.
