Before Bloomie Nails swept Manhattan, there was Blooming Nails. Like the similarly named, ubiquitous nail chain, this cozy Yorkville nail salon offers long-lasting manicures and pedicures at prices that are easy on the plastic. Small but inviting, the space houses four nail stations, three pedicure stations, and a back room for waxing. Unlike those breezy factory-salons, Korean trinkets and bamboo plants adorn the walls, and a boom box hums with the mainstream rock of WPLJ. Owner Nancy greets every client like a long, lost friend before pairing them off with one of her staff, who are known for their speed and precision. Once you’ve said your hellos, you’ll be under the dryer in Essie’s Red Hot Mama or OPI’s Pink-o de Gallo in no time flat.
