Northern Virginia's best nail salons by neighborhood

Northern Virginia - the place that so many of us call our overpriced home.

You may not want to get on 395, 495, 66 or one of the other many traffic jammed highways to get yourself a little nail pampering, which is why we’re rounding up the best hot spots in each area. Each week we’ll tackle a new category and new area and let you know which spot does it best in your neighborhood. Got suggestions? Just shoot an email to
