Galentine’s Day {Photo Recap} at Hoboken Dream Nails & Spa

Written by:

It may have been a great weekend to stay inside with the conflicting weather {as much as we hate Punxsutawney Phil for these additional weeks of winter}, but celebrating a magically snowy pre-Valentine’s Day with local Hoboken gals is just what we needed this Sunday afternoon.

What was supposed to be a Thursday-night cocktail-and-mani happy hour turned into a post-brunch girls afternoon, after the snow storm this week delayed the party, but we knew it’d be well worth the wait. The Cocktails and Nails pre-Valentine’s Day event hosted by Hoboken’s Dream Nails & Spa was accompanied with delicious custom cocktails served by the talented Lia Giachino {@lmgiachino / @jerseydrinks} and the pictures don’t do them justice!


  • The Full Package

For single ladies and taken-gals alike, our all-inclusive ticket covered a Dream Nails & Spa nail-art manicure {in-lieu of any plans for the upcoming V-Day}, signature cocktails, dessert table, and a pretty pink swag bag to-go!


  • Treat Table

Also, by sweet treats, we mean there was a table of glitter covered cake pops – locally made by Cake It, Baby! {@CakeIt_Baby} – plus it wouldn’t be a proper celebration of our galentine’s friendships without some delicious chocolate-covered strawberries.


  • Girls Night Out

Major props to Ashley from Dream Nails for setting up this seriously fun event to bring together new friends and meet Hoboken gals with similar interests {who doesn’t love a good mani and a few drinks?} for a bit of low-key fun and much needed girl-time in mile square this weekend.

*note: this was my first-ever trial {and v simple} start to my new obsession with nail art*

If you missed out this time {and are currently experiencing FOMO} don’t fret: we’ve been assured there will be more fun events like this one in the near future – see you there!

Genna moved to Hoboken upon graduating from the University of Tennessee to start her Marketing career at HGTV, and is most currently at The Knot in downtown Manhattan. To Genna, there's nothing better than cheering on UT football, soaking in warm sunny weather on her balcony, and watching starry-skied movies on Pier 13. You may have spotted Genna as a customer associate at Anthropologie ...that is, when she's not doing Hot Yoga or punching bags at CKO! Most days, you can find Genna circling the Mile Square on an early morning run or attempting to justify her shopping habits along Washington Street.
