Bellagio Nail & Spa
Situated directly across from Madison Square Park, Bellagio Nail & Spa maintains a mellow vibe despite the local bustle. With hardwood floors, creamy leather upholstery, and floral oil paintings throughout, the elongated space draws plenty of neighborhood regulars as well as office workers from the nearby Flatiron building. The salon houses nearly a dozen manicure stations and half as many vibrating pedicure chairs, so there’s rarely a wait on weeknights. Though waxing, massage, and efficient skin-care treatments with cult line Yon-Ka are also on the menu, Bellagio does its briskest business with basic, long-lasting mani-pedis using a large selection of on-trend OPI and Essie polishes. The salon also offers a hearty list of acrylic-nail services, including silk wraps and tips. At the drying station overlooking 23rd Street, clients can enjoy a vigorous complimentary back-and-shoulder massage, or simply survey the view of the ever-growing line at Shake Shack.
