Metamorphose on Central Ave in Albany (kind of across from Otto) is AMAZING. They're a few bucks more than a mall pedi, but it's so worth it. You're in a quiet room with the best pedi-chair I've ever been in...they let me soak my feet in the quiet room for 15 minutes before they began - it was so relaxing I fell asleep! The gal who does the manis and pedis is great. This reminds me that I should book something soon!

I've been to the Austin Beauty School and it took a while (~1hour) but they really did a great job and it only cost $15!

I love Poeima Salon on Western Ave in Guilderland. Nice atmosphere, great staff. I think prices for pedi start at $20 or 25. It's near Rt 155.

Wonder Nail Spa in the Kohl's plaza on Central. AMAZING massage with your pedi!

I've been to lots of places in the area. Jean Paul is my go to, with Veronica my favorite pedicurist there. Kimberley's does paraffin dips for your hands when you get a pedi. That's nice, but it's tough to read a trashy magazine when your hands are swaddled in wax and thick cotton mitts. Kelsey at Shelley does a nice job, and it's a few bucks cheaper there than some of the other places.

Exclusive Nail Salon in front of the Hannaford on Wolf Rd. $35 mani/pedi. They take great care with the mani/pedi and while you are waiting for everything to dry they apply heated pads to your back and do a powerful neck and shoulders massage.

Thanks everyone. I had been wondering about the Austin Beauty School--I'm glad someone mentioned that one! I'm thinking about giving it a try! Can't beat $15 for a pedicure.
