Polishing residents of the Upper East Side and beyond since 1988, Nails Noble is more than your average neighborhood nail joint—and only marginally more expensive. Straight out of a Woody Allen film, this swank, family-run beauty hub encourages clients to sit back and enjoy its classy vibe, jazz soundtrack, sprays of fresh flowers, and wood-and-tile decor. Service-wise, its MO couldn’t be simpler: affordable nail, face, and body treatments in a warm, relaxed environment. With twenty manicure stations and eleven pedicure chairs, the space easily accommodates its diverse and devoted clientele. The New York Spa manicure/pedicure, the house specialty, is a seasonal hand and foot treatment that offers cool exfoliation for summer, warm moisturizing for winter, and other similarly soothing treatments during the interim. Further back in the salon is a quiet den of private rooms that accommodates a growing list of spa services. Facials, currently offered only at the uptown location (the menu is otherwise the same), include deep-pore cleansing, firming, and lifting treatments for mature skin, and a hot-stone facial massage. (Noble uses and sells the popular Parisian skincare line Yon-Ka.) Clients can choose from a range of massage options, including foot, shoulder, and back rubs, or full-body Swedish, shiatsu, and sports massage. Spray tanning is also available, done by airbrush.Sales
Discounted seasonal packages are regularly offered (usually in fall and winter) and are posted in-house.
