This sweet neighborhood find, made super-cozy by big, cushy pedi-station chairs, offers more pampering for the price, including hot stone foot and calf massages. Can’t decide on a shade? Ask owner Vivian Rivera for a tip. She’s full of enthusiastic suggestions and can rattle off ideas on layering specific colors to suit requests like “I want something bright but not too pink.” You can trust her encyclopedic knowledge of lacquers—she took one look at our tester’s toenails and guessed the hue: Essie’s Topless & Barefoot. Bingo! And her expert painting (done with the traditional variety of polish the spa stocks) kept those toesies chip-free for almost two weeks.
