Every time I go to Brooklyn, I have the BEST time. I know so many amazingly talented and cool people who live there. So many talented folks who make New York the one of a kind city that it is, represent Brooklyn. And on my last visit, I got to go to Polish Bar of Brooklyn and have an awesome manicure party courtesy of EDEN BodyWorks, with a few special blogger friends who made the time and took the effort to come out and show love. I appreciate you!!


The Polish Bar of Brooklyn is a super fly, cute, clean and awesome nail spa with two locations in Brooklyn, owned by phenomenal and beautiful entrepreneur Tricialee. (That’s her in the black and white sweater and topknot in the collage above). Tricialee is a FORCE to be reckoned with and even in our fun filled evening together I could tell she has life lessons to share and is genuine to the core. This is a lady I want to spend more time with, and a visit to Polish Bar will infect you with her energy. It’s SO AWESOME. Everyone who works there is super cool and incredibly talented.

My manicure was done by Mimi – she’s @NailsByMimi on Instagram and Tumblr. She is DOPE. And I know you know how much I love hand painted, freestyle nail art. Mimi dazzled me with her skills and her professionalism.




Mimi painted some nails with this OPI oxblood color (this might have been Lincoln Park After Dark, but don’t quote me). She painted others with this gorgeous gold Essie color (Good as Gold, to be specific). Then she got funky on every single nail, culminating with my left thumb which got a custom Afrobella mani!

That’s Mimi! She’s adorable and awesome!

I know there’s a bajillion events happening in NYC on any given night, so I gotta say I really appreciate my friends who came out! Tia Williams of Shake Your Beauty, Yoli of Yoli’s Green Living, Anu Prestonia of Khamit Kinks, Christina of Love Brown Sugar, Danielle of Style And Beauty Doctor, Ty of Gorgeous in Grey, Renae of In Her Shoes and the amazing Ylorie AKA BrownGirlMktg – I love you guys! Thanks for making my visit to Brooklyn so great!

Thank you EDEN BodyWorks and Polish Bar for the FUN!

This looks like an amazing time. I wish there were more "artistic" driven nail salons in my area of Northern Florida. Next time I'm in BK, I know what one of my stops will be! xo's! - Ashley afabtail.com

Maybe TriciaLee may wish to franchise her salon?

The one on Myrtle Ave? Very cute, so I wanted to support them but way over priced and usually sub par work.
