The Joyride Experience

The Joyride experience is all in the details, without complication. Like your coffee with almond milk? Prefer a green juice while your nails dry? We want to get to know you! Can’t remember the name of that polish you had on your toes for your best friend’s wedding two years ago? Want products safe for your little one? Leave that up to us! We are proud to use an all-natural, organic line of exclusive Joyride products from beginning to end of your service. With an extensive range of nail polish brands we stand by (both 3 Free and 5 Free options) and 350 colours to suit your mood, the choice is yours and we’ll remember your favourites! And, so you aren’t scuffing up your fresh paint job on magazine pages, we’ve gone digital; an iPad loaded with the latest glossies is available at every station.

Come to Joyride to catch up with friends, chat with your favourite nail tech, or just have some alone time.
Choose your joy, take the ride. We can’t wait to meet you!

Our Studio

The Joyride team is committed to providing a clean, healthy environment for our clients to hangout in. That means all natural (almost) everything. All of the cleaning products we use are natural, non-harmful to the environment, safe for our staff, and for you! Fresh is best, and we want to keep the air quality that way too. Through a purification system we’re striving to ensure you breathe easy during your visit to Joyride. We also make sure to keep our tools clean, which means using a dental grade sterilizer as well as using disposable files and buffers for each client. Any questions? Please don’t hesitate to ask!

Our Products

Because we wanted to make sure we were only using the best product line at Joyride, we created our own! From the beginning of your mani to the end of your pedi, technicians will use our exclusive Joyride line of all natural, plant based products. Essential oils, butters and certified organic ingredients go into our soak, scrub, lotion, wash, bubble bath and oil. Keeping it local, the line is also formulated and manufactured in Canada! And, if you’re like us, you are partial to a fresh smelling candle. So, we created our own, with a signature Joyride scent.
