2010 5280 – Editor’s Choice and Reader’s Choice awards

From pressed tin walls to piles of glam-filled magazines, the aesthetic in each branch of this local chain screams “girlfriend getaway.” So much so that you’ve picked it as the Mile High’s best for four straight years. Not ones to ignore a perfect streak, we figured it was about time to revisit an old favorite. Thank goodness we did. With three locations (Highland, Wash Park, South Pearl) this polish shop is quick to find you a reservation—even at the last minute. We especially appreciate the obsessive attention to detail, like purse hooks conveniently located next to nail stations and nail technicians who’ll carefully slip sandals on your feet during a pedicure (yes, we all need a Cinderella fix now and then). Bonus: Our latest pedicure lasted five weeks. Now that’s staying power we can all get behind. Multiple locations, www.tootsiesnailshoppe.com
