ISO: A Good Mani-Pedi

I need a good manicure and pedicure. It’s been a while, three months at least, ever since I smashed my finger in a Manila hotel deck chair and had to perform poolside surgery with a kabob stick.

Since then, I lost the smashed finger nail and a new one grew back. A nail that is now long enough to shape and love. Coupled with the other nine that need a little TLC, I’m ready for the full mani-pedi experience again.

I have only one problem: where to go? My last manicurist moved out of DC in the spring and closed her shop. Now I need a new nail technician, one with a real foot bath for my feet and clean instruments for them and my hands.

And now I need you to tell me your favorite downtown mani-pedi wonder worker in the comments below. Bonus points if it includes a foot and/or shoulder massage too.
