As women, getting pampered is a luxury.
Those bi-weekly manicures and pedicures can quickly add up, but in the end it's always worth it. Finding the perfect spot that is both affordable and chic can sometimes be tricky and we end up choosy affordable over presentable.

Whether you reside in the New York City area or just happen to be passing through, take full advantage and treat yourself like a Queen for a day. Your wallet might regret it, but you won't.
