Just in time for Memorial Day Weekend: if you are looking for a new mani/pedi spot that is a little bit different from the “normal, routine” experience, you are in luck! I stumbled across this uptown nail salon gem, The V Spot, last week and wanted to share my wonderful experience.
I mean, who has pedicure chairs that look THIS cute?
Located at 159 14th Street, the salon is so adorable, relaxing, and clean — totally a step above a lot of the regular nail salons in town. For a pedicure, you sit on a beautiful sofa chair and put your feet in a silver tub with warm water. So so soothing. And there are chandeliers on the ceiling!
When your feet need to be rinsed, the water comes from a white pitcher poured on top of your legs, not from the water below being splashed up. Quite refreshing!
Afterwards, your legs are exfoliated and massaged with a hot stone + honey + aloe. So soothing – and different from the norm. I loved it!
As far as staff — they are so nice. The salon’s owner, Vivian is so friendly as well – I had such a lovely time chatting with her; she makes you feel comfortable and welcome! She even helped me pick out a blazin’ turquoise for my polish color – I’m wearing it proudly with no post mani/pedi color-regrets (you TOTALLY know what I’m talking about):
My mani and pedi were flawless, and my polish is STILL doing well (at least 4 days later – impressive for a regular manicure). But I mean…don’t take my word for it. The V Spot is rated 5 stars by 31 people on Yelp so far! It’s definitely not just me giving Vivian and her ladies the ups. Vivian also does color gels, but no acrylic at this time.
Make sure to check out The V Spot on 14th Street. She’s open Wednesday – Sunday. Have you been? How did you like it?
