It’s happened to the best of us. You walk into the nail salon, thinking you know what color you want. Then you see it—the polish wall, filled with hundreds of tiny, technicolor bottles gleaming in the light. Suddenly, you’re the definition of indecision. To avoid that predicament, we scoured the Instagram feeds of a few Denver nail salons and found five manicures we can’t wait to duplicate. Here are five of the coolest manicures in town, from some of the best salons in Denver.Cold as IceManicure by Bella V Nails The geometric nail art contrasts with this clean, ice-blue polish, striking a beautiful balance. (According to Instagram, that base color is Creekside from CND’s Vinylux collection.)French Manicure 2.0Manicure by Liquid Glam Nail Studio This one is simple, yet striking. Just by swapping white polish for black, a standard french manicure becomes something special. (Here are three other ways to elevate your french manicure.)A Touch of GoldManicure by Liquid Glam Nail Studio Everything about this photo oozes glamour. The aubergine-and-gold color combo, the triangles at the bases of the nails (make sure those cuticles are on point), and even the emeralds in her engagement ring. We’re suckers for engagement rings with a twist.More Is LessManicure by Nails & Beyond There’s a lot happening here—pink, gold, and black; washi tape and nail art; a shape that’s both stiletto and squared. But somehow, it still feels understated. Impressive.Glitter and LaceManicure by Salon Joa We’re loving all the negative space in this manicure, especially with the glittery gold base coat—it feels so airy. And in that crisp white, it works for winter, spring, or summer.Read More

One of the best ways to get to know the Mile High City is to embark on some of the innumerable Denver tours available. Fortunately for your wallet, we created an all-day itinerary of no-cost tours. And if you’re looking for other things to do in Denver, this seven-stop adventure also includes a few suggestions for free side trips.Stop 1: Colorado State Capitol Tour times: hourly; 10 a.m.–3 p.m. Monday–Friday As one of the most iconic Denver landmarks, the Colorado State Capitol is the perfect place to start. Arrive early for a trip to the top of the golden dome and soak up a sweeping panoramic view of the city.Stop 2: Denver Art Museum Children’s admission to the Denver Art Museum is always free, but unless it’s a free day (the first Saturday of each month), adult admission to the popular Denver museum’s innards ranges from $8 to $13. Instead of heading inside, stroll through the museum’s free outdoor exhibit, where you can take in the building’s stunning architecture or pose for photo opps with massive modern sculptures.Stop 3: 16th Street Mall Grab the free shuttle from Civic Center Station to 16th Street Mall. Take a leisurely walk along the mile-long pedestrian thoroughfare or take a seat and dig into food-truck fare. You can also snag lunch from the café inside the Tattered Cover Book Store before perusing its selection of books.Stop 4: Colorado Sports Hall of Fame Museum at Sports Authority Field From downtown Denver, you can easily board a bus to the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame Museum at Sports Authority Field. Learn about Colorado’s football greats, as well as track-and-field stars and world-class fencers. The stadium tour is extra, but museum admission is free.Stop 5: Hammond’s Candies Tour times: every half hour; weekdays 9 a.m.–3 p.m.; Saturdays 10 a.m.–3 p.m. Hammond’s Candies may be out of the way, but its factory tour is worth a trip. Kids love watching the candy-making process, and even adults may find themselves mesmerized as Hammond’s lollipops, taffy, and hard candies are pulled and shaped by hand.Stop 6: Stranahan’s Tour times: hourly; 11 a.m.–5 p.m. or 6 p.m. Wednesday–Monday Reserve a ticket at least a few days in advance for a one-hour tour of Stranahan’s, Colorado’s first whiskey distillery. After you’ve been walked through the brew house, still house, rack house, and bottling-room floor, it’s time to sample some whiskey. Stop 7: Great Divide Brewing Co. Tour times: hourly; 3–5 p.m. on weekdays; 2–6 p.m. on weekends If you’re more interested in craft beer, Great Divide Brewing Co. offers first-come, first-serve tours each afternoon. Not only are adult-supervised children aged 12 and older welcome, but those 21 and older can buy up to three samples for $1 each—and the samples’ proceeds go to charity.Read More
If you live in Denver, house cleaning is a luxury that can help you free up time to make the most of the beautiful surroundings. The less time you spend inside scrubbing your bathroom, the more time you have to hike, bike, and enjoy the great outdoors. When you hire experienced house cleaners, they’ll know how to tackle one of the most time-consuming cleaning tasks: removing soap scum. But before you pack away your cleaning products for good, read on to learn more about this nagging household ailment.How It FormsSoap and water go together like peas and carrots, and they’re much better at cleaning to boot. But this cleansing duo also has a dark side: together, they create a vile substance that can take over the entire bathroom—soap scum. Most bar soap contains plant oils, which, when combined with the calcium or magnesium deposits found in hard water, form a cloudy, white or gray film that sticks onto shower walls, doors, and curtains. If left untreated, the buildup can collect mold or mildew, body oils, and even bacteria. How to Remove ItUnfortunately, once soap scum has built up on a surface, there’s only one way to remove it: scrub, scrub, scrub. Some cleaning companies in Denver may incorporate unconventional solutions such as baking soda, lemon juice, and vinegar—the acids in the latter two help break down the buildup better than many other cleaning products. You can probably expect this from green companies like Eco Clean 4U and Exec, which are both dedicated to using eco-friendly cleaning products (Eco Clean 4U has even been known to use that natural baking soda and vinegar combo to clear clogged drains). But no matter how you tackle it, removing soap scum is a difficult and time-consuming process, so prevention is the key to keeping showers scum-free.How to Prevent ItThe easiest way to prevent soap scum buildup, easily enough, is to switch from bar soap to liquid soap. Liquid soaps are often chemically formulated to avoid reacting with mineral deposits. In addition, wiping down the shower walls and doors with a squeegee after each use will help prevent most—if not all—soap-scum buildup. Installing a water-softener showerhead can help, too, by removing those mineral deposits that react with soap in the first place.Read More
