Living in Hoboken, who doesn’t love a hidden gem? Whether it is a shop, restaurant, or salon, any Hoboken girl appreciates local perks — no matter what the case. And when it comes to nails, that’s even more important. Enter our Hoboken Girl mani maven on this Monday to give you the low-down on a BAR that does free manicures. Yes, a bar.

Looking for a Friday night one-stop-shop to pampering and booze? McSwiggans {located at 110 1st Street} has a fun, social, and relatively inexpensive deal: buy a cocktail and receive a free manicure! From 7pm-9pm {on Fridays only} you can head to happy hour with your girls and enjoy a sweet kick-off to the weekend.


This week I had the pleasure of actually making it to happy hour (finally not working late!), and meeting Tee, the manicurist at McSwiggans. Esthetician by day, manicurist by night, Tee was such a pleasure to spend my Friday happy hour with! The best part? As I walked up to greet Tee, she was reading HobokenGirl on her phone…coincidence? I think not.

Tee brings her own polishes, varying week by week which expands beyond Essie and OPI. As a professional who does work for celebs and advertising, she supports her fellow manicurists by featuring some of their lines – Lauren B and Bernadette Thompson to name a few!

^Tee in her McSwiggans glory! <3 her.

Since this is a limited set up, don’t expect a full blown mani (no exfoliation or cuticle clean up), but Tee does an exceptional job of filing, moisturizing and polishing those talons…especially as you’re grabbing a cocktail.

Be sure to check out McSwiggans’ happy hour on Fridays from 7pm-9pm and visit Tee! And of course, don’t forget to tip 🙂
