Gettin’ Tipsy: A List of the Best Indie BYOB Manicure Salons

Spa time with the girls has always been my favorite midweek diversion. For me, though, a manicure/pedicure combo isn’t complete unless it’s accompanied by a cocktail. CS shares that sentiment and came up with the perfect list of BYOB indie spas and nail salons. My personal favorite, Spa Space, is the first mentioned. I hosted a party here and can vouch for the staff’s professional, yet warm, hospitality. Plus, it’s within walking distance of the West Loop’s yummy Randolph street restaurant strip, and the French Market in Ogilvie Station. If you’re looking for credentials, Gabrielle Union and Oprah both are fans of this spot.

What I’ll be booking next: Current special, a MoroccanOil Pedicure. Beginning with an orange peel scrub and ending with a honey lavender scented hydrating treatment. Why am I not there right now?!
