Emma Faye Nail Salon

My parents have been so helpful in getting projects done around my condo. One Saturday, my dad had a few things to finish up at my place, so my parents drove out to Waukesha and we met up at the Farmer's Market. It was a beautiful start to the day.

This was my first time at the market for the season and I like the new changes they made. The market is located on both sides of the Fox River in downtown Waukesha. Some buildings were torn down in the Waukesha State Bank parking lot last year and grassy areas were put in their place. The booths line that grassy area, providing more room between the rows and a lot more vendors.

Mia Famiglia is one of my parents' favorite restaurants when it was in Hales Corners. I was happy to see they had a booth with their products and samples. I had the onion foccacia bread with a balsamic reduction. It was fabulous! I still have to get over to 225 South one of these days and try more of the great cuisine.
After spending some time and a little money at the market, my mom and I went for pedicures at Emma Faye Nail Salon in Waukesha. The place has been open for about a year, but this was my first time here.
They were ready for us right at our appointment time and let us soak our feet for a bit before starting. They asked if we wanted water, tea, soda or coffee while we were relaxing, but we were both content at the time.
They have six pedicure massaging chairs across the back wall and a counter in the middle with four stools do manicures.
They have both gel and regular polishes for nails.
They performed an excellent job on my feet and it was such a relaxing experience. Tony was extremely personable and talked to my mom and I about all sorts of things while we were relaxing.
And they do a stellar job on the polish. I went with a bright Brewers blue while my mom went with a more typical (for her) mauve-y pink tone. The polish looked great and they let us sit for as long as we wanted to let them dry.
They signed my mom and I up for the pedicure club and after five pedicures, your next one is free. What a great deal!

These are my toes one month later and there isn't a single chip in the polish. I can never do that on my own!
I will definitely be going back for another pedicure soon and possibly a manicure too! The place is very inviting and very clean. And the prices are extremely reasonable! It's not far from work for me either, so I can just zip over here after work or maybe even on my lunch hour.
