Awarded Best Pedicure of 2009 by Rhode Island Monthly, Naturally Nails’ techs gussy-up hands and feet with creative nail art and spa treatments in a chic studio with complimentary beverages.

Opt for a no-frills ‘cure with the basic mani, which cleans up fingertips with a shaping, cuticle trim, traditional polishing, and relaxing hand massage.
