I haven't gotten my nails done in a very long time, namely because my old haunt closed down. Mr. Monkey had a black-tie work function several weeks ago, so I decided to try a new place nearby.
Wood Spoon. The salon offers both OPI and essie polishes.
Prices are reasonable. A manicure costs $12. A pedicure costs $17. A mani-pedi costs $27. The place is quite clean. There are no gross whirlpool foot baths. Your feet will be soaked in a disposable plastic tub.
Here's my left hand with OPI's Italian Love Affair. Nice.
They did a good job on my toes, too, but my feet are generally ugly, so no feet pics for you. For what it's worth, my toes sported essie's Garnet.
Nails on Ninth is open Monday through Friday 10 a.m.-7 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m.-6 p.m., and by appointment on Sunday. I enjoyed my visit and will return.
Now for a few bonus pics.
When I got home, I was excited to have my camera with me to capture these blooms. They're long gone now. I heart taking photos.
And here's a shot of us in the elevator before we went to Mr. Monkey's event.
He's so cute in his tuxedo.
