Quest for the Best: Nail Salons

Photo by Miki Jourdan

Reana asks: “Anyone like a nail salon enough to recommend in the Columbia Heights area? I probably get my nails done once every two years and I don’t care enough about it to travel outside NW.”

The early replies:

“Spa Logic (Dupont) or Mimosa on 18th!”

“V Nails on Park or Laveda on 14th.”

“Enchanted nails in Adam’s Morgan, the only place I’ll go!”

“Cosmo Beauty Bar is simply the best and I cannot recommend it enough.”

“Okay not Columbia heights but CLOSE and 100% worth the walk or scooter ride. @GlossBarDc in Shaw! Vivian and Vi are GREAT!”

“Check out enchanted in AdMo (close enough) and I can vouch for them”

“Enchanted nails in Adams Morgan! It’s on 18th and so nice”

“The nail place in that little square across from target, next to the pollo campero, was actually not bad the last time I went in there (in 2020!)”

“Mimosa Salon on R Street and Connecticut. Not Columbia Heights but close.”

“MYE nail salon in Adams Morgan next to Popeyes”

“Mimosa on 18th!”
