Sabrina’s straightforward appeal is in the prices; Basic manis are a mere $10; the $22 pedis last more than two weeks, and the salon’s special UV Gels—from first application to follow-up fill—are a relative bargain. Long-term patrons have learned to ignore owner Amy’s brusque manner and smartly prep in advance by deciding their service and OPI polish color before entering the salon, which is decorated with jewel-tone arm chairs, Audrey Hepburn photos, and tons of Tiffany lamps. (Though walk-ins are accepted, it’s also smart to book in advance if you have a favorite technician.) Five control-paneled pedi chairs, six manicure tables, plenty of drying stations, and Amy’s verbal whip-cracking keeps the salon buzzing along, making lunchtime and evening sessions pass at a steady clip. If there is a wait, it’s usually no more than fifteen minutes, and while the pet-friendly spot has plenty of magazines and a crackly radio to keep you entertained, there’s more amusement in watching tiny pooches sniff the floor fans in confusion while their owners dry their toes.

Frequent Nail-Filer Program

A card will be made for you on the first visit (they use your birthday to ID you), and after ten manicures, you get one free.
