Probably nothing in walking distance from Moonstone Beach.
I think Yelp.com will be your best resource for a nail salon.
Moonstone Beach Drive is isolated from the main part of town. As everyone else has mentioned.... you would have to drive to find a place that does nails.
Google maps is a good source for seeing distances.
This shows your motel and Nails by Tess in Cambria. The distance is a little over 2 miles:
This other map shows your hotel and the Diva Day Spa which is farther away at a little over 3 miles:
I have no experience with either place but thought that seeing them on a map would help you understand the situation.
As everyone else said, there's nothing within walking distance. I used to live in Boston and a mile or two was considered walking distance. Out here, people get in their cars to cross the street.
The walk from the Fogcatcher to these businesses would involve a stroll along the shoulder of Highway 1, which is not exactly safe or pedestrian-friendly.
Yelp also lists a salon called Pacific Hair that offers mani/pedis. It definitely is closer to Moonstone Drive than the other two locations already named. I haven't been there but address is 780 Arlington Street (Phone 805-927-3301) which is the street directly above Main Street. As you read, we Americans drive everywhere. Definitely do-able at 1.1 miles because location is close by the West Village section of Cambria's "downtown" area. Once again problem is that Moonstone Drive does not have a paved sidewalk. There is a bus/shuttle that used to run into town. There are stops along Moonstone and Main Street. I did see a small bus going down Moonstone and it did drop someone off by a hotel. I'll see what I can find out. Sorry, I didn't see your post earlier, I was just in Cambria for the past few days and could have driven by there. Yelp has a current review so must still be at that location.
