Le Chic Nail Salon Is The Fastest, Most Flawless $10 Manicure On The Lower East Side

Manicure
There’s a million cheap nail places in New York, but not all are created equal. Our all-time favorite is Soho Nails on West Broadway, but sometimes we don’t have the time to walk there and back so finding its east side equivalent was our never-ending unofficial quest in life. Sure, nice-ish places opened in our Lower East Side hood over the years, but our mission is for the best $10 mani, not a $16 one. We’d been to Le Chic nails on Rivington once or twice before at it’s original location, but only last week tried out its larger location on Rivington and Norfolk, catty-corner to Schiller’s. The speed, you guys, the speed! This may have been the fastest mani we’ve ever had. Our nail girl, who didn’t even pay that much attention to the manicure because she was fully engaged with her her colleague the entre time, was in the kind of auto-pilot work mode that gave us assembly-line precision manicure we live for. She took care of business, and she did it fast. Perfect shape, length and the best paint job – no polish on cuticles which is our # pet peeve. Also, post mani you can take a seat at the dryers in the window which are the super-turbo kind that dry your polish insanely fast. Not that you’ll be in rush, the people watching on that block is pretty good. PS Yes, it’s clean.
