Three reasons I love Top Ten Nails on Hawthorne:

  1. 'Crazy Train' by Ozzy plays on the muzak, and the xylophone is involved.
  2. Two drag queens came in while I was getting my nails done yesterday wanting french manicures.
  3. You can get a really good mani for only 13 bucks.
I've come crawling back to Top Ten after being away for a little over a month...I was seeing another salon due to a Groupon and that the offered Shellac (see previous post, it all ended very messy) but now I am back and it feels like I am again in the arms of an old luv-ah.

Top Ten is no fancy-schmancy salon, it is admittedly bare bones but the ladies (and gentleman) who work there really take their time and do a great job. They are also not super chatty, so when I just want to close my eyes and shut out the world while they work on my cuticles they don't seem to mind.

Honestly, for $13 you really can't ask for a better cheapie-quickie afternoon-delight indulgence. We can all afford that can't we? For aesthetic reasons and for our minds, it's good to escape sometimes.
