Manicures, Pedicures and Pinot Noir

The Nail Bar just opened in March in Harbor Town Square and I finally got around to popping in today. I had a pedicure yesterday (not downtown) and decided I would give the Nail Bar a try for a manicure and was very impressed. It occupies the space where Blu Champagne used to be right on the corner opposite Miss Cordelia's; the address is 117 Harbor Town Square. It's cute, clean and comfortable and the staff was great. I took a seat at the bar where there is a large flatscreen TV. They put on the movie "Juno" for me to watch while they did my nails. There is also a menu at the bar of different wines you can sip on while you're there. Very civilized! The prices were also great by the way. I had a discussion with a friend a couple of weeks ago about nail polish. I opined that polish on your toes is a must but polish (except clear) on your fingernails is fast becoming a throwback (or has in fact already been thrown back in my case). That's my two cents and that's what it's worth. Anyway, I'm now a big fan of the Nail Bar.
