Never underestimate the power of a good manicure or pedicure. It's a small luxury we can all afford, however the beauty tab can get quite pricey when you consider the weekly upkeep (gel manis excluded).

Miami isn't short on nail salons and spas, and while we totally encourage you to splurge on yourself every once in a while with luxe pedicures, effective facials, spray tans, and PAMM-worthy nail art, we're not above $12 to $15 manicures and pedicures and $30 combos. Below we've listed out 21 great places for cheap manis and pedis, ones that will keep costs down and your glam factor up.

We tried our best to span all areas of Miami, from Palm Springs North to Pinecrest, however we're always looking for more salons. Do you have a favorite? Let us know in the comments section, or drop a suggestion into our tip jar and we'll consider adding in the upcoming weeks.

Nails and Wine

We're all for a place that includes nails AND wine in the title. A full manicure and pedicure will run you $30, which is a killer deal, but people go mostly for the nail art. When shouldn't you go? When you're in a rush. Hey, the Mona Lisa wasn't painted in a day, right?

The beautiful, chic, modern all white space is really a step above the rest and you aren’t paying an arm and a leg for it either. The $40 express mani/pedi is the most economical decision, but you can upgrade from there. There's also an added perk for all you eco-consious girls: Zoya all natural polish!

Nails. Done Right. Done Fast. Great price. In the time it took you to read that, you'll be done with your mani and pedi at Kimmy's, and it will be good. Real good.
