Hidden behind the pink facade of an East Village storefront lies a polished nail salon. The playful interior, doused with pink leather, Pop Art wallpaper and bauble-like light fixtures is split into two rows of custom-made pedicure islands, replete with comfy lounge chairs and modern footbaths—no jets or spine-pummeling massage chairs here—plus an aisle of five cozy manicure booths. Blush’s pampering manicures ($12–$22) include a soak in water strewn with fresh flowers, a homemade lemon-sugar scrub and a hot towel wrap, leaving skin and nails looking and smelling good. Treat your feet with a pedicure ($29–$59) that incorporates seasonal delights, like invigorating peppermint, fresh lemon or nourishing milk-and-honey treatments. In addition to waxing ($10–$110) and chair massages (30 minutes $35), Blush offers weekly specials, like a complimentary paraffin treatment with the purchase of a mani-pedi combo ($TK) that was recently offered.
