If you find yourself in Washington DC and are in need of a little pampering, then there are a number of places where you get a great manicure and put a smile on your face. And, if you work in the pressured environment of our nation's capital, this type of indulgence can put balance back into your life.
Speaking of balance, the Balance Gym Soma Spa at 2121 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, will let you settle into a very comfortable chair and enjoy a high end manicure and a stone pedicure and hot stone foot massage. The manicure is $50 and the pedicure is $75. The Circe Day Spa at 123 North Washington Street in suburban Alexandria specializes in hand relieving manicures for $50. Breathe in the lavender scented air while your manicurist spends 45 minutes giving you a hand massage that will make your whole body go limp. Only then will she attend to your nails and apply the polish. And see if you can book an appointment with Kristy Le at Christophe Salon at 1125 18th Street, NW. She is Hillary Clinton's personal manicurist and is also flown around the country to Christophe's other salons in Beverly Hills and Newport Beach, California. She works quickly and professionally and all for only $30. If your budget is limited, for just $15 you can enjoy a great manicure at Acquanails Boutique at 4701 Sangamore Road.
If you find yourself in trendy Georgetown, Vicky's Nail Boutique at 1616 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, offers a quality manicure experience. Nail Avenue at 4483 Connecticut Avenue, NW in Van Ness specializes in gel manicures and are very helpful in answering any question you might have about them.
