Mother’s Day Gift Idea: September Nail Salon
If you haven't gotten your mom anything for Mother's Day yet, here's a solid suggestion: call September Nail Salon and book an appointment for her.
Owner Jennifer Purnell has turned a generic Germantown storefront into a chic, inviting nail salon. The space is sleek and sunny, and it's the sort of place that you won't mind hanging out in while your nails dry.
I had a pedicure at September last week, and it was pretty great. Honestly, I would go back just to hang out in the pedicure chairs: they're huge, they're comfotable, and – best part – they give a pretty great massage.
Being a latecomer to most of the girlier things in life (I didn't learn to walk in heels or wear makeup until college), I'm not entirely sure what was going on during the pedicure, but I know that it involved lotion, a scrub, having my feet mummified in hot towels, and a little foot jacuzzi that had colored lights to make the water change color.
(As you can see, I obviously don't know what I'm doing, wearing skinny jeans and sneakers to a pedicure.)
The polish selection isn't massive, but there are plenty of choices, including OPI and Essie colors (I went with a bright, springy green).
Manicures at September Nail Salon start at $20 and pedicures start at $39. They've got special services for guys (an $18 manicure) and little girls. Walk-ins are welcome and they're happy to host groups.
