Best luxury mani-pedi

Staff Pick

If you leave Nouvelle Nail Spa and don't desperately want to own one of its pedicure chairs, you are an enemy of comfort. Eschewing the standard nail salon massage chairs — which, let's be honest, tend to feel more like torture than a "massage" — Nouvelle opts instead for ergonomic lounge chairs that bring your knees up to head-level and sap all the pressure and stress from your aching feet. The spa's interior is all exposed brick and minimalist design — no circa-'86 mirrored wall art here. Manicures include a virtually indestructible polish job, seasonal aromatherapy (last winter, it was something delicious and pumpkin-y) and a nice, long hand massage. Nouvelle's enormous collection of polish options is meticulously organized by brand and shade, making the selection process a lot less likely to induce panic. For the spontaneous among us, keep in mind Nouvelle recommends that you make an appointment in advance. A little planning ahead is totally worth it for an hour in one of those chairs. 1011-B Marietta St. 404-835-7839. nouvellenailspa.com.
