Better show up 10 minutes early for your mani/pedi — you’ll want the extra time to pore over Tenoverten’s massive selection of polish colors. Along with its excellent house brand of five-free lacquers, the sunny salon has the latest hues from the likes of RGB, NARS, essie, and Dior. As for the services themselves, the cheerful technicians and their obsession with cleanliness are top-notch. Color us impressed.
