Ceci’s Nails opened for business in mid-December in the 214 Amity Road shopping plaza, next door to the newly expanded Lucky Soul Tattoo. Ceci’s Nails, owned by Cecilia Bermeo, offers waxing, eyelash extensions, facials, manicures, pedicures and eyebrow threading. Bermeo has been in the nail business for 12 years (most recently she worked at Blue Sky Nails in New Haven) and always knew she wanted to open her own salon. “I have a lot of experience but I knew that wouldn’t be enough,” she said, so she enrolled in business classes to be better prepared for this next step.
The salon space is newly renovated (it used to be a bakery) and the result is calm, relaxing and airy. The walls are a soft blue-gray. Metallic accents and a chandelier add a touch of elegance.
Bermeo stresses how important cleanliness is to her. “Everyone should feel safe and welcome here,” she said explaining that she uses a liner for the pedicure chairs and individual one-time-use packages for manicures and pedicures. She wants customers to relax and not worry about hygiene.
The salon accepts appointments and walk-ins. Ceci’s Nails is open 9 am to 7 pm Monday through Saturday and 10 am to 5 pm on Sunday. It is also open for bridal parties, birthday parties and other group events. For appointments call 203-939-6524 and more information can be found at facebook.com/cecisnailsandspa.
