It’s not hard to find a nail salon in Charlotte; however, finding a quality salon is key. The Ballantyne Nail Spa has always been my go-to when it comes to getting my nails done but now that I don’t live so close anymore, I had to venture out and take my chances somewhere new.
Having been given a gift card to Polished, I figured I’d give it a shot. It was Saturday morning around 11 AM when I walked in. Plenty of seats available. By 12, it was almost booked solid. I could not believe the number of people in there, and especially the number of men getting manis and pedis with their significant others.
Everything was clean and the employees were pretty quick with moving around and getting started on customers. I was moved from my massage chair to the nail bar (kind of like a sports bar with all those TVs – and they offer drinks!) when it came time for my manicure.
All in all, those two took about 40 minutes and then I was moved into the wax room in the corner. This was the only time where I had to wait for service. I sat there for 5 minutes or so before someone came over, but the process was quick and
painless mostly painless.
I watched the technicians work on nails at the smaller of the two nail bars while I waited. The mani/pedi combo was only $35, not bad, especially for the quick turnaround. You get more pampering at places like Ballantyne Nail Spa but for the price and time, I say Polished is the place to go.
They have locations around Charlotte in Southpark, Myers Park, South end, and Ballantyne. Definitely worth checking out, especially if you have friends, a husband, or a group of gals (bridal party?) who want to get their hands and feet taken care of!
