Salon and Spa Directory: Tenoverten

Tenoverten, nail salon, Salon and Spa Directory, nails, nail polish, polish, lacquer, nail lacquer, manicure, pedicure, salonNARS. RGB. Chanel. Essie. OPI. If you're looking for an amazing collection of nail polishes to try during your next manicure and pedicure, Tenoverten is the spot for you. Oh, and did I mention they have a row of comfortable armchairs overlooking TriBeCa from huge arched windows and free iPads you can use while your hands and feet are buffed, scrubbed and polished to perfection?

I had been curious about Tenoverten for awhile, but since TriBeCa is nowhere near my apartment, it took awhile for me to make the trek. But wow, am I ever glad I did! Tenoverten is the kind of nail salon I've been looking for ever since I moved to New York 10 years ago.

I love everything about this spot, which is tucked into a landmark building on Reade Street. (Truth be told, I walked by it the first time and had to backtrack because the building and address were so unassuming!) An amazing array of nail polishes greets you as soon as you step into the salon, including all the newest Chanel colors and a selection of Tenoverten's own line. The space's inviting design, replete with overstuffed armchairs and tons of natural light streaming in, makes for a lovely way to spend an afternoon with a friend (or with yourself and your Kindle).

I was pleasantly surprised by the prices as well. This is one of the most upscale nail salons in the city, but it's extremely reasonable. Manicures are $15-$40, while pedicures are $35-$65. Yes, this is more expensive than your average walk-in salon, but it's worth it for a manicure and pedicure that last for up to two weeks with no chipping and the promise of cleanliness and professionalism.

Plus, they use Seche Vite Top Coat -- my favorite top coat of all time (and the fastest drying, glossiest one out there). Any salon who knows the amazingness of Seche Vite deserves 5 stars.

And the best part is, another location is opening very soon at the Parker Meridien! Now I'll have absolutely no excuse not to go every week.
