Using Gelish and Galaxy gel polish, the Tokyo-trained technicians of this Lower East Side salon can create elaborate themes and detailed freehand pictures. Though the salon is industrial with darker lighting and neon signs, the nail art ($3–$10 per nail) can range from light swirls to geometric shapes, and you can even get depictions of beloved pieces of art or anime characters. Check out the website or Facebook page for hundreds of ideas, and the manicurist can alter the design to best fit your style.
