Event | Top 5 Reasons You Should Visit Polished Nail Bar :

Let me tell you how having great blogger babes always come through! I’d been fan-girling over @SoBeSaavy for quite some time now and finally was able to meet her in person recently at Tracee Ellis Ross + JCPenney Holiday Collection launch! Because of her thoughtfulness, a few days ago, I was included with other local Raleigh bloggers and influencers and attended the VIP grand opening party of the newest Polish Nail Bar location!
Top 5 Reasons You Should Visit Polished Nail Bar

1. Location
The Grand Opening unveiled it’s first Polished location in the Glenwood South area of downtown Raleigh. My local readers know how parking can be in this area! I usually have a little bit of anxiety about going downtown, due to my issues with parallel parking on busy streets but parking at 222 Glenwood was super easy and also affordable. They already have 6 locations operating in the Charlotte, NC area.

Gurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrl! That’s in all CAPS for good reason! Let me tell you, it is gorgeous in there! You’ll feel like a million bucks just by stepping inside. Everything is over-sized and glam! From the tufted chairs, to the farmhouse sink, the flat screens, to the huge hanging acrylic shelf that housed their polish choices, it’s all luxe! I really enjoyed having my service performed at the mani bar versus the typical nail salon with those individual stations. Very communal! I can so imagine myself and group of girlfriends at the bar with our mimosas and chatting it up.

3. VIP Lounge
I saved a few Instastories that feature this room @msnaturallyrandom! Check out the hashtag #GetPolishedRDU for more pics and videos from fellow bloggers! This would be great for a small company retreat or bridal party. Heck maybe even the location of a future #RandomMomsNightOut. I wish this place was around when I was pregnant! I know a lot of mommy’s that need to be pampered during that third trimester! 

4. Kid Approved
So, this outing included a special little guest, my Pumpkin! It was the perfect girl’s day out with my Mini #RandomGlam. They even have pricing for the kiddos! I was a little nervous because this was Pumpkin’s first time to a nail salon but the staff immediately squashed those fears. They were gentle and talked to her on her level which really helped the day go smoothly. I can see more “Mommy & Me Mani” dates in the future.

5. Specials
Not only are their prices affordable but they also feature daily specials. A couple are Mimosa Mondays and Sangria & A Manicure Wednesdays (are you noticing a theme yet?)...
Check out iPolished.com for a complete list of services and all of their specials. Oh and if you were wondering....yes, complimentary drinks are served every day!

It’s not too late to get in some self-care in before the end of the year! Polished is open seven days a week: Monday - Saturday 9:30am - 7:30pm and Sunday 1pm - 5pm. Maybe you can even make a resolution for next year by buying yourself a gift certificate as a promise to a little more “me-time” moving forward. Special thanks to JSW Media group for the invite and organizing this event!
