Cheap manicure pedicure bars in Toronto
Manicure pedicure options abound in Toronto. After all, getting your nails done can be a lot like picking up a cup of coffee or going for sushi. And while there are options literally on every other street, sometimes you just want something fast and cheap. In Toronto, especially on busy blocks, there seem to be more and more nail salons cropping up. And perhaps for that reason, you don't have to fork over a whole lot if you're looking for a basic manicure or pedicure.
Sterilization is non-negotiable for me when dropping into a salon, but I could take or leave the iced lemon water and energy candles that sometimes come with a higher price.
If karma candles are your thing, though, this list probably isn't for you. But anyone looking for an affordable (around $15) manicure might want to check out some of the places listed below, as suggested by our followers on Twitter.
On Danforth east of Broadview, Urban nail offers basic manicures for $15, pedicures for $25, and $35 for both. They also have waxing for basically every feasible surface of your body.
Lucy's Nails at Dundas and High Park offers the cheapest manicure I've heard of in the city, at just $8. Pedicures are $18, and both hands and feet are $25. Cash only.
Mosheta Salon & Spa at Queen east of Bathurst and Yonge and Wellesley offers manicures for $15, pedicures for $20, and both for $30. It also specializes in Vajazzling for those for whom pretty hands and feet aren't quite enough.
On College east of Crawford, manicures at Chic are $15, pedicures are $25, and both are $35. Said to be quick and easy.

A chain of salons with several locations in Toronto, Nice One at King and Dufferin quoted me $15 for a manicure, $25 for a pedicure, and $40 for both (meaning no special deal if you get hands and feet).
