Keeping one’s hands in tip-top condition is a must for anyone in business. A firm handshake from a nicely manicured hand is noticed. Even if you are a student or retired, we use our hands so much that they deserve some pampering. Here are a few of the best places in the DFW area to go for a manicure.

Lush Nail Lounge offers eight different types of manicures but one of particular note is the Long Island Iced Tea Manicure $25. It focuses on neglected hands. Aloe is used to hydrate while antioxidant green tea with a thyme masque will soothe stressed hands, fresh oranges are used with a sugar scrub, as well as paraffin wax to lock in moisture followed by Codi brand green tea lotion for a hand massage.
