The Nail Shop is a favourite of mine. If you’re looking for a little TLC for your nails before hitting the town for the night, a stop here might be just what the doctor ordered. Iva is my go-to gal, and her English is exceptional (she worked in a Wisconsin salon for two years). They also offer facials and waxing.

Appointments are absolutely necessary. The shop is located on the righthand side of the courtyard in Slovanský dům, a building with several other retail shops and restaurants, directly across from Kogo Ristorante.
