is my happy place. It’s one of the chicest nail salons in New York City, where I retreat after a long day of running around like a maniac between meetings.

All three of their Manhattan locations — my favorite is the flagship downtown in TriBeCa — are equipped with custom pedicure stations complete with comfortable, livingroom style armchairs that make you feel right at home. From modern manicure tables to the color-coded wall (yes, wall!) of nail polish colors, this salon has a cozy, pleasing atmosphere that’s unparalleled. They also have every Chanel lacquer under the sun.
Aside from being a relaxing haven in the hustle and bustle of the city, Tenoverten’s treatments are incredible. Every client gets his or her own sealed set of sanitized tools, and each aesthetician ensures you walk out with nails that look perfect. There’s no feeling of being rushed, only endless offers by the owners for you to enjoy beverages ranging from Diet Coke to green tea.
Tenoverten’s no-frills approach is also refreshing: They only apply regular nail polish to your natural nails, making for the best classic, clean manicure in the city.
Open from 8AM to 10PM during the week, Tenoverten draws stylish city girls who don’t have time for R&R during the regular workday. A late-night “Luxe” manicure and pedicure — their service that includes a 10-minute hot stone massage and deep hydration cream — is an ideal break in anyone’s busy schedule.
