Pass on the Chips at Miami’s Best Nail Salons

Hands down the hardest-working manis in the business

best manicures!

There’s nothing like a shoddy paint job to kill your spirit fingers. For guaranteed results, we give you the best manicures in the 305.

Most Dramatic Finish
Your idea of DIY nail art hasn’t evolved since the days of Lisa Frank decals. For an extra $2-$5 a nail, an A&M Bellezza specialist draws a veritable masterpiece over any regular polish service ($20). 

Heavy-Duty Digits
For a mani that withstands your gym-tan-laundry routine, stick to UV-sealed polishes. Salon Gilbert’s got both OPI gel ($27) and CND shellac ($25) in a colorful array. Plus, each is available in a regular shade for a matching pedi.

Biggest Cult Following
Talk about loyal. Tuka Nails Bar’s clients have trailed the meticulous technician through various locations all over Miami Beach, partly for her no-nonsense approach to manicures ($17): prompt and precise, period.

Goes the Distance
You’ve gone for high-end varnishes and low-end lacquers, but nothing keeps your tips looking fresh for long. Vinylux ($20) at Salon Vaso dries lightning fast, resists smudges, lasts seven to ten days, and doesn’t require a UV light to seal (i.e., no need to soak these babies to remove). 

Cheapest Thrill
When it’s frills you’re after, Nails by Kelly at ZenMe Spa offers the comforts of a spa without the inflated price tag. A regular manicure ($20) gets you a relaxing hand massage and a choice of beverage (Tazo tea, coffee, and others) in a serene space. First-timers who book a pedicure with their service receive a free paraffin treatment.
