For many women (and some men), getting a manicure is a frequent occurrence, and once they find a manicure salon they like, it's hard to get them to change. Sometimes, though, either you get tired of the "same ol' same ol" whether it's service or the choices of nail colors or styles, or whatever. You also may be new and not know where to go for a good manicure.

You don't have to worry about not being able to find a place because New York City is loaded with manicure studios. However, if you want to find the best, we've given you a few suggestions to get you started. They're spread around in location, so you should be able to find one near where you live or work.

Dyanna Body and Nail Salon, 40 East 21st Street

This is a body and nail spa that offers full manicure services. You can get them either as part of a spa package or you can just receive manicure services. You can choose from French manicures, glue manicures, or European lactol manicures. If you choose this last one, your hands and nails receive special treatment with a very special type of hot cream. It's a wonderful experience!

If you only go with manicure services, you'll be surprised at the very reasonable prices, even for the European lactol manicures, or the ones that offer a small spa treatment along with a manicure. You can afford to pamper yourself several times a month, if you wish.

Great Jones Spa, 29 Great Jones Street

If you're new to NYC, or you're not familiar with what's referred to as the NoHo District, Great Jones Street is essentially what used to be known as 3rd Street, specifically the area between Broadway and the Bowery. Now, that you know where it is, if you're in that area, you can visit the spa.

When you do, you'll have several different manicure treatments to choose from, including some that use products with coconut and lemon verbena essences in them. You can also choose from French manicures, including French lavender manicures. You can choose your manicures as part of a complete spa package or as a separate 20-40 minute session (this includes pedicures, too).

Element Beauty Lounge (2 locations)

You have two locations to choose from for this venue. One is at 48 3rd Avenue in the City; the other one is at 73 5th Avenue in Brooklyn. No matter which place you choose, you're sure to get a good manicure. You can choose from several different types of manicure services, all guaranteed to make your nails and hands look their best. When you're finished, you'll feel better all over, not just on your hands.

Shizuka New York Nail Salon and Spa, 7 W. 51st Street

Shizuka prides itself on being available for you when it's most convenient for you to get a manicure. This can be on your lunch break, or when you simply need a quick touch-up. If you're headed to an important event, you can schedule a manicure for right before the event. That way, your nails will look as good as the rest of you, and you won't have to worry about messing up your manicure before you get to your destination.

Pierre Michel, 135 East 57th Street

Don't let the fancy-sounding name scare your off. The prices at Pierre Michael for manicures, including French manicures, are very reasonable. That doesn't mean you won't get a high-quality manicure, though. You'll receive great service and a hand and nail treatment that you'll be glad to show off. Your only concern will be deciding if you want to let others in on your secret.
