J Nails & Spa has opened its doors within the past month in the newly renovated building at 7 Spring Avenue in downtown Waukon. The building that most recently housed Spring Avenue Pub in Waukon has now been renovated both inside and outside and, as of August 5, is home to the new business owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Tommy Ta and Yen Thu Nguyen.

The couple originally came from California and has also lived in Illinois and Wisconsin. They have three children that include two boys and one girl.

The two say that building owner Dick Sullivan inspired them to open their business at its new Waukon location. They describe their new venture as an “upscale nail salon” and offer both manicures and pedicures within their line-up of services.

They find Waukon to be a “wonderful town” and say the people living here in Waukon are friendly. They also said they decided to open their new J Nails & Spa location in Waukon because there are no other specifically dedicated nail salons in town.

The couple says learning new ideas has been the most rewarding aspect about operating their own business, and they hope to expand the business and services they offer in the future. They like being able to support local businesses and they encourage everyone to do the same as much as possible.

J Nails & Spa is open from 8:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and also open from 12-5 p.m. each Sunday. Appointments are encouraged and can be made by calling 563-568-3769. The business can also be found on social media under J Nails & Spa.
