Despite the name and the clovers on the business cards, the only hint of the good-luck motif you’ll find inside this second-story nail salon is in the mint green trim on the moldings. The walls are painted a warm butter and the whole space has the inviting feel of a friend’s apartment, albeit an old-fashioned friend with an interesting eye for art: Three large, abstract paintings seem to depict a cosmic meteor shower, an odd contrast to a retreat that’s otherwise supremely calming, especially during the quiet after-work hours. While the water in the soaking bowl can be a touch on the cold side, and the hot towel a tad too hot, this affordable salon offers clients the added bonus of personalized tool kits; every time regulars stop by, they can rest easy knowing that the buffer hasn’t polished anyone else but them. Basic mani/pedi services are offered, as are shoulder and back chair massages and full-body waxing in one of two small, open-ceiling waxing rooms.
