A good manicure and pedicure?

manicured nailsRue asks via Twitter:

Where are the good places to get a manicure/pedicure in Troy?

If you have a suggestion for Rue, please share! And even if it's not a suggestion in Troy, share that, too! Cuticles of the Capital Region will thank you.

can't vouch for the mani (and it's not in Troy--sorry!) but the new Wonder Nail at the Kohls plaza on Central ave gave me an amazing spa pedicure (the "spa" pedicure is $45) which included a warming mask on legs/feet, scrub, 10 minute massage on each leg, hot towels, another quick massage with hot stones and while your toes are drying and you're sitting at the table they massage your shoulders and neck. The whole place is new and SUPER clean and the massage chairs (that you sit in while getting your pedi) are strong and extra massage-ey (can you tell I"m all about the massage?!) treat yourself..it's really worth it. Just don't make the mistake I made and go on a break in the middle of your work day. You'll want to go home and pass out afterwards.

Nails & Beyond Hoosick Street

the La family at natural nails, 20 & 155

I second Nails & Beyond.

I just had a mani & pedi for the first time at Solar Nails, which is in the Price Chopper Plaza on Hoosick Street. (Well, the other side of it, where Pollock's hardware is.)

Realllllly happy with the service. I think I found my new spot. (And they did a great job on my eyebrows too.)

If you want a manicure that lasts you want to go to Will Nails on Route 9 in Clifton Park. It is only a short drive from Troy, tops 15 minutes, and with the color gel manicure I have been getting you need only go there once a month.

They are clean, friendly, and really give you the relaxation that a manicure/pedicure should have. The color gel manicure is new and I rave about it to all my friends. The best part is once you set it under a UV light it is dry and retains the glossy shine until I go back (3 weeks tops!)

I know this is a long post but I can't find anywhere else that I go to get my nails done, even Nails and Beyond failed to please, after I went to Will Nails.

Plus a bonus is they don't have a tv in the salon so there isn't some annoying talk show on in the background while your manicurist tries to watch it and do your nails too!

Will Nails...trust me you will love it there.

Belated thanks for all the tips -- and for the posting itself! I'm probably going to check out all of these places.

I highly recommend 90s Nails in Troy NY on congress street. she is amazing with nail art very creative, you can bring in any picture and she can duplicate it! Very talented she is clean and her nails last for weeks without lifting or breaking, she is American and I can understand her! I love this place I highly recommend. A+

I am very glad they are moving the bus stop back from the Armory to the Library. The number of near misses from folks turning onto Washington Ave is frightening. I am also happy to hear a mid-block crossing is being installed. There are waaaaay to many people walking down the middle of a 4 lane road not paying attention, hopefully this will give them a safer, faster, path to the other side.
