“I am really impressed and really happy with my acrylic set! I found this business via IG , followed them for a while , and today I finally went. Everyone is super nice and professional! Loved that clients don’t have to sit at a regular chair; you get a comfy couch style chair and an ottoman to rest your legs on so you can kick back and watch a movie the whole while! Their online catalog is extensive and the online booking is an ease. It is pleasant , quiet and calm here unlike the rushed busy atmosphere of typical salons. I had been scoping out a cool- creative nail place and this is it! I cannot wait to come back, they do a great job.” -Nati Lopez

“I absolutely love the vibe of this nail salon. I normally have some sort of trepidation visiting a nail salon as getting a mani & pedi does not relax me, as most people. The nail artists/techs and front desk staff all seem to get along really well, and are incredibly helpful to each other. At my first visit, Saki, was patient, asked me numerous times if I liked her work throughout the appointment, made sure my nail lengths and shape were uniform. She did a great job as did Leezy on my second visit. Marie Nails is worth the trek downtown for this Harlemite.” -Melissa Rowe
Tenoverten Nail Salon
Tenoverten Nail Salon – Nadine Abramcyk and Adair Ilyinsky saw a void in New York: in a city packed with nail salons, there was simply nowhere people could relax and enjoy expert services in a clean, beautiful, comfortable social setting. Not much existed between high-priced spas and mom-and-pop corner shops.
So tenoverten was born.
From the start, with their first beautifully designed location in lower Manhattan, Nadine and Adair focused on the care and well-being of their staff, providing fair pay and benefits and a healthy, non-toxic setting for the entire tenoverten family. They chose to carry and use only products that were better-for-you, shunning the trend towards gels and dips in favor of trusted brands that worked well and left nails and skin healthy.

Their talented artists can create hundreds of designs and combinations including custom nail art. If you don’t see a design that fits your aesthetic, simply ask an artist, and they can develop something for your own individual taste!

“Beautiful space. Great customer service. I didn’t quite like my first nail design. I called them and they let me come back in to fer a new design. Totally in love now. I’ve already set up my next 2 appointments.” -Hitoka81
Vanity Projects – Founded by independent curator, Rita de Alencar Pinto in 2008, Vanity Projects first began as a pop-up, organizing itself in the homes and studios of visual artists, friends, and art aficionados. Vanity Projects quickly received offers to present at art fairs, fashion events, museums, and cultural institutions. In January 2013, MoMA PS1 invited Vanity Projects to do a three-month pop-up within the Confettisystems installation, held in the museum’s duplex.

“I love this place! I found it randomly in an article about nail salons in NYC that do great nail art, and they weren’t lying! They can do just about anything you want on either your natural nail or on acrylic nail. Are they pricey? A bit but you ARE paying for absolute quality.” -Rroman1988
