So, I’m assuming most of my readers have an Instagram account by now and can follow The W Nail Bar (hint!). I see lots of cool local places on Instagram and The W Nail Bar has the best nail art photos out there! I was excited to schedule my appointment because they are located in the Short North and that meant,where am I going for cocktails? I turned to Instagram again and asked for suggestions and ended up at Mouton. Mouton is a small vintage cocktail spot. I enjoyed a Greyhound and a small board of cheese, olives, bread, and pomodoraccio tomatoes. After my little happy hour treat I just went a few steps next door to the nail bar.
To my surprise The W Nail Bar had a very different vibe then a nail salon in the suburbs. You know I always try to get you ladies out of the suburbs! Music was jamming and the layout and decor was shabby chic and the place was packed! I was hosted to a gel manicure and simple nail art. Gel manis and pedis are hot sellers in the city. No one has time to wait for nails to dry! While I was taking in the atmosphere I noticed that there were plenty of pedicure stations if you wanted to book a girls night out and you can bring in your own alcohol and snacks! My mind started wander… Some day I will live in the city and breeze in and out of my favorite little shops…..then I heard, “honey go rinse your hands.” Ah, one can dream. Loved loved this place!! Must go back for a girls night!
