I also recommend Floris. They are sanitary and do a good job. I think a manicure is around $12. Portofino is also clean and they do a good job too. The place in Trump seemed clean but I prefer the other two.

Do women get manicures to show each other? I have always wondered because whenever my girlfriend gets one and asks me if I like it, I wonder to myself, "Why do I care whether your finger nails are pink, red, or whatever color?" and then proceed to say, "They look amazing"

Is it like guys and bench pressing? Cause I know the difference in benching 180 versus 225 matters extremely little to women but matters a lot to other guys. Or guys and cars?

Am I wrong?


It's just another facet of grooming. some women are wash n' go, others pay more attention to detail.

I work a lot with my hands, and after a couple of weeks they can look pretty wrecked. Having a pro file, trim and buff my nails and cuticles is a necessary indulgence.

As long as that pro is using clean tools.

Floris (on the corner of Greene and Grand) is wonderfully clean. Basic manicure is $12 PLUS they give you a five minute chair massage.

Best value in downtown.

It's tough with the cheap places...usually you sacrifice cleanliness, unfortunately. I recently bought my own tools to bring. Target sells a little kit with everything in it for about $8.

There is a new place opening on Newark Ave near Monmouth St. Maybe they will be better.

Can anyone recommend the CLEANEST place to get a manicure downtown?

I used to love Zion, but it seems they've fallen out of the habit of sterilizing their equipment.

Sat down for a manicure this afternoon, and the woman picked up the tools she'd just used on the last customer, and reached for my hand.

I pulled back in horror, pointed towards the empty sterilizer behind her, and asked for "clean tools." The manicurist then put the used tools into a cup of the blue stuff, reached under her table, brought out different tools, gave them a quick dip, and was once again ready for action.

I walked out.

So if anyone can recommend a mani/pedi place that has a sterilizer that they actually use on a regular basis, I'd really appreciate it.

I think the cheapest I've seen is Joy Nails, at $8 or $9...plus they throw in a short shoulder massage.

Zion is similar, maybe $1 or so more, and seems cleaner. They're nice at both places.

I'm not lookin for the best, just the cheapest place to get my nails done. What's the best price you've found in Downtown JC?
