Home to Philipse Manor Hall and the Empire Casino, Yonkers offers distractions for historians and gamblers alike. For those more interested in spending hours gazing at shellac nails instead of at the elaborate paper mache ceiling at Philipse Manor Hall, try one of the many relaxing Yonkers day spas. An hour spent watching the delicate work that goes into a great spa manicure may inspire a new appreciation for the artistry at the Philipse.

Spring showers may bring summer flowers, but gardening can wreak havoc on even the strongest nails. To help nails get back into shape and make sure feet are sandal-ready, try Fancy Nail Salon.

This Yonkers day spa has some of the most affordable manicures and pedicures in town, so make sure to call ahead.

To restore that certain joie de vivre, visit La Belle Day Spa on Lake Avenue.

For tired visages, try the Jurlique Organic Spa Facial or the Belavi Facelift Spa Facial, sure to brighten things up before summer gets into full swing.

Booked up every weekend with summer weddings? Try the acrylic manicure at Nail Pro to make nails both beautiful and indestructible. The manicure at this Yonkers spa will ensure nails are strong, but they’ll also look feminine enough to go with that perfect summer dress.
