The mom’s, BM’s and I will be going to get our nails (mani’s and pedi’s) done the Friday before the wedding. I haven’t lived in Philly for 5+ years and the place I used to go to was clean but kind of bootleg. Any suggestions for nice, clean places that do good work (including gel nails)? I’d like the place to have nice massage chairs—the place I used to go to did not. Also, we’re staying at the Bellevue, so somewhere within walking distance of there, please

Nail Bar—it’s my favorite nail place in Philly! It’s on 18th right off Rittenhouse Square.
You can book a group and they always have a complimentary glass of wine or champers while you get your mani/pedi. They are the best!

I second the Nail Bar recommendation!

I know there’s a really nice salon in the Bellvue…not sure how pricey it is. I also like City on Square on 17th near Spruce (I think). It’s super clean and REALLY big.

@sweetpea1813: Thanks. The Bellevue one closed apparently…
We’re all booked at the Nail Bar!

I had a terrific experience at Cosmos Nail Salon at 12th and Walnut. Doesn’t look like much from the outside — tacky neon lights, etc. — but it’s spatious, clean and modern inside. We gave them advance notice that we were part of a bridal party and they set up a table with plastic champagne flutes for us. They gave us all nice mini neck massages while our nails dried. Thumbs up!

Nice! I know the Nail Bar offers wine, sparkling wine, and beer…will definitely be a nice atmosphere. I haven’t been but my friend is going there for a mani/pedi tonight. Let us know how it is! Enjoy!!

@phillybride61513: Tria is right around the corner and is one of my fave wine/beer bars! Great place to meet up before your appointment.
