The W Nail Bar + DSW

I had the immense pleasure of attending the opening party last night for, The W Nail Bar’s collaboration with Designer Show Warehouse at Polaris Fashion Place.

Manda and Lauren, two sisters and best friends, who grew up in a family business and dreamed of one day starting their own, are the owners and masterminds behind The W Nail Bar that started in the Short North. They are about to have three locations including their new collaborative location with DSW as well as German Village, opening soon. To say the duo are taking Columbus by storm is an understatement.

Next up: World domination.

I had never had the chance to meet either sister personally so I was excited for the chance to come support two women and their incredible success!

Leave it to Lindsey to put her foot in her mouth immediately upon arrival. I was standing with a group of women chatting, I only knew one of them, when Manda, co-owner of W introduced herself, saying I looked familiar. In my defense she used to have black hair and that was what I was looking for. I knew she looked familiar and before I could stop my mouth, I heard myself question if she too was a blogger?

Blogger?!?!? Uhh… no Lindsey she owns the business you are here supporting. I pretty much could not have been more mortified as I immediately realized who she was and my mistake.

The space is beyond stunning.

It is bright, light and airy and provides the perfect vibe for all the fashionistas that are sure to indulge in two of their favorites, shoes and nails!

I died over the swinging chair, I really think I need one in my house!

The W stands for we, and they mean it!

They’re building a community around their shops. Once you’re a part of their family they think you’ll want to stay for awhile.

The W Nail Bar’s Core Values:

HUSTLE – We are a team and every person contributes equally. We see thousands of clients each week, so we must equally hustle together to operate.

TEAMWORK – We are here to help each other grow and have fun. We aren’t solving world hunger, this is nails. Keep it simple and contribute equally to our team; this will lead to success.

FAMILY – We are here to create an environment like grandma’s kitchen. We are connecting with each other and clients at a different level. We make decisions based on empathy.

INTEGRITY – We do what we say we are going to do, every time. We are proud of the decisions we make.

AUTHENTICITY – We allow people to feel comfortable in their own skin. We respect each other in their uniqueness.

SERVICE – We have the best manis and pedis that anyone has ever seen. There is a nail salon on every corner, but we educate our clients. Our transparency brings our clients back.

Who doesn’t need a quick nail fix when shoe shopping?

Beauty is IN at Designer Show Warehouse.

It was a happening party full of very beautiful people!

Standing in the corner alone, being awkward. Per Usual.

Thank goodness I ran into this babe!

As I was standing in the corner, awkwardly alone, I was contemplating my escape route because I didn’t recognize any familiar faces, when I saw this gorgeous gal and my evening instantly got better! Nothing a friend and 3 {or 4} glasses of champagne can’t cure.

You didn’t think we were going to let this chair slip by without getting some photos in it, did you?

I wouldn’t be able to call myself a blogger if I didn’t indulge in the photo.

I cannot wait to watch these two continued success in Columbus and beyond!

I’m not really one of those women who preaches about supporting other women, not because I don’t want to. It is just one of those values I’d rather live and walk-the-walk rather then just talking about how I enjoy supporting and encouraging other women.

I truly believe there is enough success for everyone women that wants it, and Lauren and Manda embody business savvy while staying true to themselves.

Total Boss Babes.

Proud Mama.
