Get Polished

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.

IMG_4128Having 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.

IMG_4126I went for the full package of mani, pedi and eyebrow waxing. Starting with the pedicure which was pretty awesome. Only wish I had a hot towel or sugar scrub to go along with it.

IMG_4123Everything 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.

IMG_4124All 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.

IMG_4125I 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!
