Getting your nails done can be a time-consuming experience, so the newly opened Cavalry Nail Bar at 4104 Mount Vernon Avenue lets you sip wine as you’re getting your nails done.
Technically, manager Aivy Ho said you could also order beer, but so far the orders have been exclusively for wine. Customers seem to be responding positively to the new business.
“It’s been good,” said Ho. “We’re in a really open area and with our lights, you can’t miss us at night.”
The nail bar had been located in Crystal City for ten years, but the company decided to move to the border of Alexandria and Arlington. The new location opened late last week.
Ho described the Arlandria area as up-and-coming, with plenty of parking, which was an issue that plagued the Crystal City location. She said the Arlandria location is also currently hiring for nail technicians and cosmetologists.
The salon has the same ownership as Cavalry Salon and Nails Spa, just off Dupont Circle in D.C., according to Ho.
