Ladies, Lacquer Lounge Nail Bar & Beautique at 5th and Fitzwater Streets in Philadelphia is a pink paradise where Owner Lisa McElhone puts a new and fresh twist on nail care.  I truly enjoyed my manicure and to top it off I enjoyed it with a glass of champagne.

“I like the fact that people are happy and they love what they see, and they’re beautiful,” McElhone said, “I also like the fact that we do provide a pro-health atmosphere.”

This healthy atmosphere gets its claim to fame as being one of Philadelphia’s hottest and cleanest salons.

“Everything here is disposal, disinfectable. We auto-clave our tools which is a step that a lot of other places don’t even know exists,” McElhone said, “It’s basically a high pressure steam unit that medical offices will use.”

The salon also offers the hottest colors: everything from neons to neutrals.  And as I said before, one of many clients favorite parts is enjoying a cocktail with their service.  I came in with plain nails and walked out happy with hot neon purple nails.
