Tucked away in the Noho Arts District, Mani-Kir Royale invites guests to pull up a chair to the sleek, chrome-like surface of their bar for a digit-dazzling experience that utilizes products from high-end brands such as Nail Tek, OPI, Seche, and Creative Nail Design. The pumpkin pedicure trims, shapes, then polishes toe armor with a buff or autumnal lacquer of choice, allowing patrons to light up neighborhood jack-o'-lanterns simply by walking down the street. Complemented by a traditional manicure, each natural nail treatment also ensures tired muscles are pampered with essential oils that help to hydrate skin and flush out toxins. Additionally, technicians slather human husks in warm, relaxing lotion, leaving skin softer than an afghan knitted from the fur of the Snuggle bear. Guests can also lavish their lips with a complimentary glass of champagne or browse the cosmetic haven's arsenal of aforementioned beauty products, all available for purchase.
Open six days a week, Mani-Kir Royale promotes a relaxing and sanitary environment through disposable implements, sterilized metal instruments, and no whirlpool footbaths, which the CDC recently named a breeding ground for bacteria and damaging big-toe belly flops.
The staff at Mani-Kir Royale treats each nail as a mini canvas as they paint detailed images with the help of OPI and CND products. They flaunt their marquee nail services not just with artistry in mind, but cleanliness as well, as evidence by their use of disposable implements and complete absence of bacteria-fostering whirlpool footbaths. The staff breaks open brand-new manicure kits for all first-time clients, who may elect to store their wares at the salon for subsequent services or bring them home to use on the overgrown talons of an eagle spouse. This allegiance to sanitation doesn't stop with their services, as the salon itself sparkles as the staff performs other services, such as waxing, bleaching, facials, and tanning.
