About Squeeze

(And Kari)


If you're looking for a welcoming, friendly atmosphere to up your nail game, you've found the right place! Squeeze Nail Bar takes the cozy feel of a home based nail salon and makes it more accessible while offering the care, cleanliness and quality of a downtown nail parlour.

I'm Kari, I'm the owner and sole operator of Squeeze. I've always loved all things glitter and have been known to be a bit of a perfectionist, so the nail industry was an easy choice. I am a graduate of both The West Coast College of Massage Therapy in Victoria and of Tru Spa Institute in Nanaimo. You're in good hands.

I run Squeeze by appointment only so feel free to contact me or book one online. I'm quite flexible when it comes to scheduling, so if you need more flexibility feel free to send me an email!


Hygiene Practice

At Squeeze, hygiene is a top priority, I follow strict methods to ensure your safety and wellbeing.

Metal Implements - all of my metal implements such as nippers, cuticle pushers, toenail clippers, pedicure foot files, stainless steel pedicure bowls etc. are efficiently sanitized after each service using hospital grade disinfectants (Accel TB, Accel CS20 and T36).

Non-Metal Tools - all non metal tools such as orange wood sticks, nail files, buffer blocks and toe separators are disposed of after each client, feel free to ask about keeping yours!

Pedicure Foot Baths with jets are a big potential breeding ground for bacteria and fungus, that's why I use only stainless steel bowls and disposable bowl liners. Making sure there's no contamination between clients.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

Gel Nails + Gel Polish - With every set I offer a free fix within 7 days of purchase. Maximum 5 nails.

Classic Manicure/Pedicures - I offer free polish touch ups or fixes within the first 3 days.

  • I do not rush my services or appointments, I have an out of the way spot away from the rush of the city for a reason! Come get away from the buzz and discover Squeeze Nail Bar, it's west broadway's hidden gem!
