This is bar none, my favorite nail salon in Manhattan and I got to go for FREE this past weekend cuz I got gifted a LuxeNow nail salon giftcard recently (it’s like SpaFinder, but for nail salons you can use all over the city, check it out at www.LuxeNow.co.m) . it is cute, cozy, and most importantly, very clean. They open new mini packages of sterilized nail tools right in front of you, which is about as good as you can get on that front. They are so sweet, and the ladies working there are very professional and meticulous. The one draw back is that they do take a while to get everything done--it's much more of a spa experience than an in-and-out nail painting--but it's totally relaxing and worth every minute.
