In Miami, there are no "Get Out of Jail Free" cards when it comes to your hands and feet. Close-toed shoes is an option; gloves are a novelty, not a necessity. The nail care industry is a serious business down here, and we've rounded up a few prime places to show your toes and fingers some Mademoiselle-style lovin.
We're not telling you to completely ditch the woman who's been doing you, your mom and your grandmother's nails from the back room of her Hialeah duplex since you were born, nor are we telling you to stop dropping by your favorite Vietnamese nail salon unannounced because, let's be real, no one does your polish change quicker and they always accept walk-ins. We're just broadening your nail salon options around town, you know? In case you ever chip a nail or five in a foreign neighborhood or just really want to really get some cuticle lovin' with someone who doesn't know what's going on with you, your cousins and your cousin's cousins. We promise, we won't tell.
We've limited the list solely to nail salons, although we do recognize that certain full-service salons have some of the best nail aestheticians in town. The list is arranged from North to South and, of course, your comments are welcome below the map and in our inbox. Careful not to chip off your freshly done mani though. No one wants to be that girl.
