Manicures were invented thousands of years ago in India, but today’s nail services are anything but old fashioned. The best salons offer the newest colors, the most current trends, and constantly updated services. Toward this end, we asked you—our Patch readers—to help us search out the best local nail salons.
Here are four of our favorite nail salons in the area:
Ana’s Nails, 144 Kings Street, Chappaqua
Unlike the ubiquitous, cookie cutter nail salon interior, Ana’s cozy and charming interior feels like stepping into a friend’s home. But what we really love about this spa is the amazing selection of new summer colors and Ana’s Pada brand organic spa pedicures.
Belle Visage, 241 Main Street, Mt. Kisco
Although the basics are available, Belle Visage offers many more interesting nail services including a reflexology spa pedicure, pomegranate and fig pedicure, or even the Belle Visage Mini Vacation Package, which includes the spa manicure and pedicure plus extended foot and chair massage.
And, while there are plenty of pedicure chairs available in this spacious spa, Belle Visage also offers the option of booking their private pedicure room for two.
Hobolyibu Nail & Spa, 21 Depot Plaza, Bedford Hills
“It’s just a great little place, with great prices,” longtime Hobolyibu customer Kim O’Connell said of her favorite salon. Manicures start at $10, a mani/pedi combo costs $30, and even the most luxuriant pedicure on their menu is reasonably priced at $55.
But this “great little place” also keeps very current. Stop in and check out Hobolyibu’s special effects “Crackle nail polish” – the newest technology in polish which produces crackled nail designs.
Grace Nails, 136 Bedford Road, Katonah
Located in the A&P shopping center in Katonah, fans of Grace Nails love the great services, which include acupuncture and massages. In addition to the standard add-on massage, clients can schedule an add-on acupuncture appointment (must be scheduled in advance), deep tissue massage, or Swedish massage. Bonus: the salon is running a 20 percent off special on most services for the next few months.
