I need my nails buffed and my mind buzzzed.

I am looking for a nail salon in Manhattan or Brooklyn (Brooklyn is preferred) that is affordable, clean and serves wine while we get our nails done. Ideally it would charge under $60 for a mani/pedi.

The wine part is tripping me up, mixed with the affordable part. Otherwise I'd call Bliss -- I think the one in the W hotel wil serve wine.

Dashing Diva is a scrupulously hygiene-oriented chain with locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn. On certain nights (I think Fridays and Saturdays?) they have free cocktails, and I've definitely been there on evenings when bachelorette/birthday parties have taken over the pedicure area with a few BYO bottles, though you should probably call first to confirm.

Wait, I don't think there's a salon I know of that would object to your BYOB, and accoutrements! Dashing Divas are great! There's also Pinkys all over the place, and Bloomies, and All Seasons on 95th and Broadway.

I have never, ever seen a BYOB scenario outside of a planned party at a mani/pedi salon. Not saying it's not possible, but I'd definitely call before bellying up with some brew.

What?! Oooh, you'd be surprised! I'll do the negotiating!

Well, me and my posse recently (a year ago-ish) comandeered the Bliss on 7th and 23rd (?) at 8:30 on a Thursday night -- 7 women who had been celebrating elsewhere -- for an impromptu mani/pedi party. One of us (me!) ran out for 4 bottles of champagne and plastic champagne glasses. We overtook the salon (which was relatively empty), popped the corks and settled in. Not even a blink! But we did tip very well when we left.
