March 1, 2010  | Article

Pedicure Poise

January 1, 2010  | Article

Here’s what some techs have done to keep their poise during strenuous pedicures.

On the Road: Polished Nail Bar, Charlotte, N.C.

October 1, 2009  | Article

About a year ago I was visiting my mom in North Carolina. She wanted to get a pedicure so I grabbed a copy of the local monthly Skirt. There was an ad for Polished Nail Bar. We went in for services, but I didn’t call ahead and tell them I was coming. (Meaning, I was incognito — not Hannah the editor of NAILS, just Hannah the girl who was taking her mom to get a pedicure.) After our services, I introduced myself to the owner and promised to come back on an “official” visit next time.
