Ask For Helen...

As much as there are many nail salons throughout NYC I still find it challenging to find one that does a good job. I've tried several places ranging from salons I saw on the street to ones that made it on someone's "Best in New York City" list. Today my two favorite spa/salons have been consistently good for quite sometime now. What I love about them is they are the perfect medium between a full fancy spa and a neighborhood walk-in spot. They are not pretentious but offer great service to everyone:

6th Avenue between 26th and 27th street
Note: Ask for Helen, she takes her time to make sure every nail bed is clean and polished perfectly.

14th Street between Union Square West and Fifth Avenue
Note: Ask for Lilly and get the smoothing pedicure if you can
