There are a few things every man and woman have a right to; in this case, I feel that it is everyone's right to have a decent manicure. Not only is it lovely, but it is sometimes well deserved. If you're looking for somewhere to soften your cuticles, and have your nails painted whilst you gaze out the window at the Freedom Tower, then I have the place for you. Ladies and Gents, I bring you the Zen of all nail salons; Ten over Ten.
The TriBeCa based nail salon prides itself in offering you an atmosphere which is more like a lush apartment than a stark white nail bar. (We've all been in those) With marble stone, penthouse-worthy arm chairs, and large bowls for your tootsies, it's very hard not to actually take a nap here.
Upon my visit, I tried out both the signature Ten over Ten manicure and pedicure; suffice to say I needed help getting out my chair at one point as I was so entranced. The salon has friendly and well trained staff who make you feel at ease with any treatment you choose. They also offer a choice of brands such as, Essie, D&G, Rococo, Nars, Chanel and their own Ten over Ten label, which retails at $18. With an ever-flowing range of refreshments and a welcoming manner, this is definitely a place to escape to when you need a moment of solace and zen.
