2007 Best Manicure

Rose Pagliarulo, The Loft Salon + Day Spa

Well-manicured hands and nails are the mark of the prosperous. Which is why you’ll want to ditch the unpredictable results and spotty hygiene of quick-stop nail joints and pay a visit to this 20-year veteran instead. Using new tools for every client, Pagliarulo employs techniques she learned in her native Brazil to leave cuticles neatly trimmed and nails masterfully polished.
