NEW BEAUTY STOPS
NAIL ALCOVE 59B Temple Street, tel: 6226- 6278, www.nailalcove.com
Our ideal nail salon should have reasonable prices and technicians who don’t rush through your paint job – that’s why we fell in love with Nail Alcove. You’ll feel completely at ease at this quaint nail salon. We tried the Classic Manicure, $28, and Classic Pedicure, $38, and pampered our feet with the Moisture Thermal Heat Wrap, $20. The hand and leg massages were invigorating and hit the right spots, and we appreciated their using the Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat without extra charge.
