CHERRY HILL — Even though she’s not new to the Cherry Hill business community, Mindy Nelson owns of one of Cherry Hill’s newest businesses, A Polished Nail.
Nelson has been running the nail salon for three years, but she was sharing space in another location.
A Polished Nail moved Aug. 1 from shared space with Shear Madness Hair Salon on Merchant Street to an independent location around the corner in the Cherry Hill town square.
“The move was very smooth,” Nelson, the sole nail technician, said. “I work Tuesday through Friday, so we did it on a weekend so there was no loss of business. It was an easy transition.”
Nelson said she has a loyal client base from across Columbia.
“People even come to me from Mexico, Missouri,” she said.
Nelson has had 15 years of nail care experience, 12 of them spent running her own salon.
“I had an independent location before,” she said. "Right about the same time the economy took a nosedive, someone else wanted the space where I was, so Tobby Brockhouse, the owner of Shear Madness, worked it out for me to be in that location. I’m just excited to be back on my own again.”
Nelson said she loves her new location because she thinks it's a good place to be.
A Polished Nail offers a number of services, including manicures, pedicures, ear candling and others. The salon, open Tuesday through Friday by appointment, is located at 2124 Cherry Hill Drive, Suite 101-B.
