With so much emphasis being placed on nails these days, it seems like women are going to the salon more than ever. And while we have our favorites, we wanted to know the spots that other people in this city swear by. So we polled a bunch of fashion folks, from bloggers like Brenna Egan of Refinery 29 to PR people like Meaghan Curcio of J.Crew to designers like Jessica Moss and Lisa Guajardo of Leyendecker to shop owners Ilaria Urbinati of Confederacy, for their go-tos. Want the best places in town for a quick polish for less? The vouched-for list is right this way.
