Let's be real for a second: your cute little pedicured toes that you got in a cute little pedicure salon are going to get un-cute pretty quick. Because when you pay $40 for a pedi, are you really taking into account that you're going to be walking on New York City sidewalks in open-toe shoes?
After the jump, we've rounded up ten nail salons where you can get a pedicure for the price of a higher-end sandwich, or a two drinks at happy hour. Or a mani-pedi special for the price of four drinks at happy hour. If we left of your favorite place—and you're willing to share—let us know in the comments below.
