Best Manicurist

  • Manicube


    The only thing more convenient than a no-­appointment nail salon? One whose technicians come to you. Launched last July by two Harvard Business School grads, Manicube will send its veteran manicurist crew to any office in Manhattan, where it administers fifteen-minute, $15 manicures and $12 “clip and cleans” for guys. (Note: Standard business hours and a twelve-person minimum apply.) Clients choose from 60-plus bottles of polish, including Essie, OPI, and Deborah Lippmann, or, for $3 extra, Chanel. Sessions are conducted with individual tool packs, and $1 from every manicure benefits a charity that provides microloans to female entrepreneurs in developing countries.
