Kim's Nails


Kim's Nails is the lastest shop to open on Russel Street between the well established businesses of Oaklands Furniture store on one side and the plumber's merchants on the other.

It calls itself "American Style" whatever that means. Personally I've never really understood the fashion for painted finger-nails, but each to their own.

When the Google Streetview car went by last June, the shop was still awaiting new tenants. The gent's hairdressers that had been there for a while had relocated.

For more K posts visit ABC Wednesday.

Give me a good 'ole manicure anyday !
By American Style it means the 'nail wraps' everyone is putting over their real nails. Trouble with them is it's hard to hold onto your shovel ;)

Great photos as always....

I'm with you, painted nails don't do much for me. I once worked with a woman that had inch long nails. Watching her type was most "interesting".

My mum paints her own nails. It only takes a minute. Why make a special trip?

What's a gardener to do with wrap around finger nails???

I like your K - shows off the town. Good to know that small businesses are doing well.
I'll tell you a secret - I've never had a manicure - but that only proves that I'm living up to the engineer stereotype.

Haven't painted my nails in years! OK, not ever.

Happy to see small shops thrive, though.

No good to me Gerald.... as I bite my nails.... I never knew the name of this street... yet at one time we used to make a weekly trip to the plumbers for supplies. I think my brother still uses it now and then.

I'm not into fingernail doings any more and got out before it became so complex. A bottle of polish and a cotton ball were the only items necessary. :) Great post!

sounds complicated!
