Thank goodness for Twitter followers. Over the weekend, one follower informed us that a new nail salon had opened in Central Harlem on 110th Street. It’s called Lilac Nail Salon & Spa. They are located at 301 Cathedral Parkway (110th Street), between Frederick Douglass Blvd and Manhattan Avenue.
Lilac offers manicure, pedicures, artificial nails, waxing and special treatments, such as nail art and ear candling. Their rates start at $10 and go all the way up to $70 for gels. Lilac is open from Monday-Saturday from 10 am to 9 pm, which is an hour or two later than Z Nails on 116th Street and Coco Nail Salon and Polished FingerTips on FDB; and on Sunday they are open from 11 am to 8 pm.
For more information, call 212-666-5888 or visit their website at www.lilacnyc.com.

The diligent PR folks over at Halstead Property have let us bloggers know, through a press release, that The Gateway Tower in Harlem is more than 90 percent sold. However, the release did not mention the commercial space of the Gateway Condo is full. It’s all gone! There is Express Dry Cleaning, Coco Nail Salon and Marcos Leatherlab that are already open for business. And two more businesses will be opening soon, which is Harlem Food Bar and Frederick Cafe Bistro. This area has shaped up nicely with Melba’s Restaurant leading the way in dining area and I believe Gateway Condo was the first new condo on this block and immediate area?

I walked by Coco Nail Salon, located near the corner of 114th Street and FDB, to check if they are open and they are! They opened last night, October 10.
As for rates, I know they are a few dollars cheaper than Z Nails on 116th. Their mani/pedi is $25 during the week and $29 on the weekends. Z Nails charges $35 for mani/pedi any day of the week. However, I am not sure on service and quality with Coco. They maybe less expensive, but let’s see how they perform on quality and service. If you check out Coco Nail Salon in the days ahead, please let us know what you think of the place?
The new nail salon called Coco Young wants all of us Harlemites to know what a mani/pedi will cost if you go there-based on the photo below! It appears the salon, located on Frederick Douglass Blvd between 113th and 114th Street, wants $4 more from customers if they go on a weekend! Hmm. I wonder how that is going to play out given Z Nails on 116th Street has one flat rate no matter what day you walk in. I believe Polished Fingertips up the street on FDB is the same. Harlem gals, what do you think? Will you pay more on the weekend to get your hands and feet done at this new nail salon scheduled to open soon?
The new nail salon that is opening on Frederick Douglass Blvd between 113th and 114th Street on the eastside of the street has a name! The place will be called Coco! Interesting. Maybe it’s named after that reality show on E!?
Apparently, the owners that are opening up this salon in Harlem are seasoned professionals. This will be their third nail salon in Manhattan. Plans to open Coco Nail Salon are slated for mid-September! So stay tuned.
