Upkeep is important to a Bitch. Despite our hectic schedules and competing work priorities, we feel it’s important to keep it together.  While we may not always have time with our hectic schedules to head down to the nail salon, we Bitches rarely leave the house without polished paws.

If we can get some work done while getting a blowout or a pedicure—then we’re all in. Getting pampered while sipping cocktails is even better!

While I may be guilty of neglecting my eyebrows for a few weeks, my nails truly get the royal treatment. We Bitches are huge fans of the nailsaloon, a luxury mani-pedi salon that’s nestled right in the heart of Logan Circle. They have wifi and serve cocktails: double win.


The beautiful, rustic space has become our retreat from the madness, where we gather on a weeknight night to clean up and catch up with our girlfriends, or to work remotely as there’s even Wifi! . And, as you may have guessed by the name, the nailsaloon serves bubbly and cocktails. My personal favorite is the Cosmopolish, the salon’s signature cocktail.


The nailsaloon is owned by a pair of women entrepreneurs, Andrea and Claudia, who are from Brazil and Argentina, respectively. In addition to creating a safe and neat space for nails, beverages, and quality girl time, the nailsaloon is founded on two other principles: toxin-free beauty and charitable giving—three percent of the daily profits go to a local women’s empowerment charity.

Next time you need a killer mani-pedi before your weekend getaway, head to the nailsaloon to get pampered while chatting with your girlfriends, and giving back! You can be certain you’re actually taking care of your pretty paws, since the nailsaloon uses five-free color, polishes without Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Resin or Camphor. This also means no gels, acrylics, or glues.

To mark the official start of summer, we invited our fabulous readers and friends to the nailsaloon for a fun girl’s night out featuring nails and cocktails. We popped bottles of &Pizza’s personal line of delicious Red and White Wine paired with their signature Kiss & Fire, Gnarlic and Farmer’s Daughter pizza while getting polished.

For an extra sweet treat, our guests walked away with super swag bags featuring gorgeous Kendra Scott earrings, a waterbottle from the nail saloon to stay hydrated, and a Passport from the Passport Program including two-for-one drink specials to keep the fun going all summer in the District. As an added bonus, our lovely ladies also received a bottle of JRINK to get energized and replenished for the upcoming summer festivities.


We had such a great time—thanks to everyone who joined us. If you’re in need of a mani/pedi before heading out of town for the fourth of July, saddle up to the nailsaloon for some merriment.

Pedicures at the nailsaloon are $48 and manicures are $32. Beverages—wine, champagne, cocktails, tea, and coffee—are complimentary.
