The nail bar was started by owner Nam Huynh of Wolf Trap in 2014. It offers manicures, pedicures, nail extensions and waxing services.
The owner was not immediately available for comment.

A barbershop and lounge is coming soon to Reston Town Center.
Hammer & Nails plans to open in the Signature at 11830 Freedom Drive on June 30, according to its social media platforms.
Ilona Kirzhner, the company’s head of franchising, said by email that the business chose Reston as a location because of its standing as an “incredible part of Northern VA.”
“The diversity of residents and businesses is second to none in our area,” Kirzhner, who is also a Fairfax County resident, wrote in a statement.
The business will feature a one-stop-shop mens’ grooming lounge. It offers camp services, men’s facials, razor shaves, beard grooming, and manicures and pedicures in its man cave.
Patrons will also be able to enjoy adult and non-alcoholic beverages in a lounge with oversized leather chairs, TVs, and noise-cancelling headphones “all built around the needs of our men,” Kirzhner adds.
Hammer & Nails already has locations in Gainesville and Leesburg.
The Brazilian steakhouse Fogo de Chão isn’t expected to open until late 2022, but it’s already making a big splash in Reston Town Center.
As the business expands, a spa and salon that has called RTC home for 21 years is relocating to another spot within the town center. The steakhouse is expected to take over space formerly taken up by Big Bowl, but it needs more space.
Et Jolie, a lifestyle AVEDA salon and spa, is temporarily located at 1826 Discovery Street, right by the ice skating rink.
The salon plans to move to a permanent location at 11990 Market Street sometime this year, according to owner Nguyen Mia. The space was formerly occupied by Subway.
The spa offers hair, skin, waxing and nail treatments, according to its website.
