Valley Nails, the upscale nail salon known for its trendy nail art, is closing. The move comes just days after parent company Hudson Blvd. Group, which acquired the business in May 2017, shuttered three of its Spruce & Bond waxing locations in Manhattan.
Valley Nails has three freestanding locations — two in New York City and one in Scarsdale, N.Y., as well as outposts in the BLVD salons inside Neiman Marcus in Hudson Yards and in the Short Hills, N.J., mall. All locations will be closed by mid-week, according to a spokeswoman. BLVD salons will continue to offer nail services, but not under the Valley name. Hudson Blvd Group’s portfolio also includes Rachel Zoe’s DreamDry blowout bar and Pucker, a makeup studio. Neither is being impacted by the closings said a spokeswoman. The company’s president Robin Moraetes could not be reached for comment.
