On a recent Saturday, an excited group of women settled into the chairs at Gaelic Day Spa and Salon on West Broadway in South Boston. They were there for a day of primping and pampering: they were all members of a wedding party! Whether it’s a bunch of friends preparing for a special occasion, or an individual simply needing some sort of touch-up, a trip to a nail salon can hit the spot. It feels so good to be taken care of, and so wonderful to walk out transformed in just the ways you had imagined.
Le Phan, owner of Gaelic Day Spa and Salon, says that she took ownership of the salon two years ago, looking forward to establishing a place where people leave happy – a place where people know their nails will be treated as works of art, beautiful in both shape and color. Le notes how customer tastes reflect the shift in seasons. While during the late fall and winter months, women might tend to prefer muted or darker colors, spring and summer bring requests for bright, playful hues. Plus, this summer, gel manicures are all the rage. And Gaelic meets the demand: Their gel manicures last two weeks or longer. Plus, as a great customer-friendly follow-up, if, by chance, a nail breaks or chips, the salon will fix it – for free!
Le says she’s delighted to be working in South Boston, “with so many young people and professionals to meet and help make happy.” She’s at the salon much of the time, developing services (including waxing, facials and tanning) that keep delighting clients, both established and new. When she isn’t at Gaelic, she can be found playing with her husband and two toddlers, and cooking up a storm.
