Good Clean Fun

I adore nail polish and all things beauty, but it's rare that I actually treat myself to a manicure and pedicure. But, thanks to a very thoughtful friend who gave me a gift certificate to the new Hoopla Studio in Fairway Kansas, I was able to have a few hours of pure bliss. 

Hoopla is the first "luxury" nail bar here in Kansas City. They are nestled into a very charming area of Kansas called Fairway. The first thing I thought of when I walked in to the studio was "CLEAN". And when it comes to nail salons, this is major. The decor is modern, white, airy and cool. One wall  is entirely tubs and benches with pretty pillows to rest your back. Across from that is a wall of Manicure stations with flat screen t.v.'s for all to enjoy. They day I was there, they had it tuned in to Bravo's Real Housewives. They definitely know their clientele at Hoopla :) 

When you first walk in, you are greeted at the front desk and are asked to choose your colors. The cool thing about Hoopla is that they have their very own collection of custom polishes. With a mani or pedi, you get to take home your very own mini polish! So after a few days if you have some chips, you can just touch it problem. 

Their 40 shades are displayed like Candy in a Candy store. How is one to decide? So many pretty colors to choose from! I decided to go with a fun peacock blue on my nails called " Princess Moon Beam" and an awesome dark navy on my toes called "Legal Eagles". My technician Kim H. was awesome...very soft spoken and sweet, thorough and very professional. I would highly recommend her if you decide to go. 

At the end of the service, not only do you take home a polish, but you also get the file and cuticle stick that they used on you during your service. Love it.

A huge thanks to my thoughtful friend Michelle. And to the wonderful staff at Hoopla for making it such an enjoyable experience...I will be back! 

In addition to nails they also do waxing and chair massage. For more info, visit 


  1. Love hoopla! They also give pretty darn good waxes too!

  2. This is awesome! How did it take so long for a salon to start doing this (giving away sample sizes of polish and the file used)?? Im excited to go try it out. Im so happy to have your blog seeing as I just moved to the KC area. Its like you're my very own personal concierge :)- Tiffany
