Social Responsibility

Inclusive & Ungendered

  • We offer a chic and ungendered space for men and women alike seeking an oasis amid the bustling city life.

  • Our services and pricing are gender neutral.

Zen Oasis

  • Pampering treatments delivered in a green and soothing environment for optimum relaxation.

  • Complimentary Zen Kit offers you a premium wellness tea and audio guided meditation along with your service to provide the ultimate self-care time.

  • Sip on MIYU’s antioxidant-rich beauty teas that are healthy, yet indulgent.

  • We’ve teamed up with the Mindfulness App to elevate your nail service. A pair of headphones and Ipod are available if you wish to unwind and experience an audio guided mediation session with your service.

  • Our space is fresh and airy- from the moment you walk in the door, you are never overwhelmed by the smell of harsh, toxic chemicals.

Health, Wellness & Safety Prioritized

  • Safer nail polish options, soy based nail polish remover, and the finest locally-made/Canadian-made natural products are used so you can feel good knowing what you are putting on your body.

  • We pride ourselves in practicing strict sanitation and hygienic protocols- AHS approved. All stainless steel tools undergo a 2-step cleaning process and sterilized in a hospital-grade autoclave. Come early before your appointment to request a tour of our Sterilization Room. Our confident staff is happy to address all your health and safety concerns.

  • Disposable nail files and buffers are one time use only and are offered to you in a sealed bag to take home if you prefer.

  • Our Signature Botanical Spray for our waterless treatments is mindfully curated using all-natural ingredients that hydrate and cleanse.

  • We use high quality, hand-crafted natural products by LAMB’S SOAPWORKS for our backbar service.

  • We use lacquers and gel polishes void of the most harmful chemicals found in traditional nail polishes. We proudly use Akzentz, NCLA and ZOYA. These brands are also free of any animal derived bi-products and never tested on animals.

  • As a healthier alternative to traditional acetone polish remover, we use a Soy-based polish remover from Pure Anada to remove lacquer from your nails. It is non-toxic, 100% biodegradable and does not emit harsh fumes. This makes it safe for children and pregnant or nursing mothers. This service is complimentary upon request.

  • We never use dangerous razors or graters on your feet.

  • We do not offer acrylic products, which are harmful to the health of our nail technicians and to the overall nail health of our clients.

  • We only use LED drying lamps, avoiding potentially harmful UV lamps altogether.

Social Responsibility

  • At Drift, we believe in giving back to make our world a better place.

  • For every Drift Cuticle Serum sold, we donate a portion of the profit to support The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA). CMHA is committed to improving the mental well-being of everyone in the community, and emphasize that attention to self-care can be especially important to individuals and families managing a mental illness.
