Have you ever been to a nail salon that smells amazing, is hyper-clean, and is warm and welcoming all at the same time? Yeah, me either. That is until I found the nailsaloon in D.C. We all know how nice it is to feel pampered and have a moment to yourself every once in a while. However, the nailsaloon took my relaxing moment to a whole other level. Going off of a recommendation from a friend I headed here for a mani/pedi combo before leaving for New York City, because we all know it wouldn’t be fashion week without a fresh coat of paint on your nails, right?
From the moment I stepped into the light-filled salon I was immediately relaxed and at ease and greeted with friendly faces offering me a comfortable seat and a cocktail #heaven. Their signature cocktail (the cosmopolish) was both refreshing and tasty! It was such an added bonus that the decor was so adorable. There was so much attention to detail from the gorgeous marble tables to the crazy comfortable chairs!
We all know the hardest part of a mani/pedi day is picking the color. I know I’m not the only indecisive one here! I must admit that they don’t make the process any easier than usual, since they have an amazing selection of colors from the perfect nude to bright + fun colors for the perfect beach vacay look. One of the coolest parts is that they actually have a line of their own with so many colors to choose from! All of their polishes are also vegan and 5-free, too. Fun fact: all of the colors are named after technicians of the salon, as well as some of the family members of the owners. I love the personal touch that they added by doing that!
I decided to go with Nonna (the PERFECT dark Burgundy) for my toes and Bulga for my fingers because there’s nothing better than a good nude-this one was so good! It has the slightest pink undertone and is perfectly neutral. It is definitely a go-to from now on! Side note: am I the only one who feels weird when my nail polishes don’t match what I’m wearing?? #neutralsforlife
Overall, if you’re looking for your new go-to nail salon look no further. I can already tell that my appointments will be much more regular now that I’ve found my favorite spot in D.C. Consider this that nudge you needed to go #treatyoself because this is the place you’ve been waiting for!
