I have gone to Albert's Beauty College (formerly Continental Beauty College) for manicures and pedicures several times. since students are doing the work they are VERY reasonable. You can get a manicure and pedicure for around $16. They always do a good job. They are open fairly late and on Saturdays so it is easy to get in. They take walk-ins, but it is a good idea to make an appointment. The only draw back is that you usually have someone different each time you go. I think you can request a specific person though.
