Martini and a manicure

Polished, the hip nail bar in South End, offers a special promotion every Wednesday that includes a martini with your manicure (or pedicure).

I popped in to pamper my toes after work and found dozens of other women doing the same.

Owners Sonny Kim and Haley Tran know how to put on a good party, with hor d'oeuvres for those waiting for their nail treatment and attentive staff who are there to replenish your drink or bring you a magazine.

If you've never been, it's a great spot to bring your girlfriends for a special occasion. I found one group of teachers from the Montessori school on East Boulevard cashing in gift cards they got from parents for Teacher Appreciation Day. They were all lined up in the pedi chairs, martini glasses in hand and looking like they were in heaven.

And even if you show up sans posse, the environment is such that you find yourself easily talking fashion and celebrity gossip with your neighbor.


$20 Martini mani
$30 Martini pedi
$45 for both

The promotion goes on all day Wednesdays, so you can even have a cocktail on your lunch hour (I won't tell).

Sarah!!!!!! You were not supposed to tell that well-kept secret! Now it's going to be even more impossible to get in there! LOL :-) Nonetheless, it's my favorite spot!
