Polished BB was opened in 2008 by two sisters, Micki and Susan Nam, both beauty biz professionals. Micki, an Upper West Sider, was tired of feeling like just another seat-filler, week after week, in her neighborhood salon which fell consistently short on her own standards for cleanliness, yet was egregiously high on attitude! And pricey to boot!
Micki longed for a salon that was clean, friendly and delivered a consistently lasting manicure. So she wooed her otherwise perfectly content sister from her successful Long Island salon to open a location in Manhattan.
With cleanliness as a driver, Polished BB was outfitted with several top-of-the-line amenities to ensure the ultimate hygienic and enjoyable customer experience:
- certified air purification system
- Klenz shoe sanitizer
- medical-grade autoclaved (sanitized) tools
- bacteria-resistant pedicure stations
- widest selection of Zoya triple-free, non-toxic polish
- organic manis/pedis powered by Pharmacopia
But what truly sets Polished BB apart is an extraordinary manicure and impeccable service delivered in a relaxing, friendly, community-centric setting.
Polished BB counts several prominent Upper West Side celebrities, newscasters, beauty editors and discerning men and women from around town - as clients.
And Sue and Micki greet every single one by name!

Relax and unwind with our Polished Spa manicure and pedicure. Our multistep process is designed to give you a true “Polished” experience.We begin with an Antibacterial spray to clean your lower legs and feet. Then an Anti-bacterial foot soak is added with soothing salts and milk to provide natural exfoliation and hydration for your tired feet. Next, an exfoliating scrub is applied with texturized gloves to thoroughly cleanse and stimulate blood circulation. This is followed by a moisture mask and heated towels to lock in the moisture. This journey ends with a 10 minute massage with a luxurious lotion scented with your choice ingredient.
“Polished” Pedicure Chairs
We have carefully selected our pedicure chairs to provide the finest pedicure experience. Our chairs are equipped to massage your entire back (and bottom!) while a spa jet footbath radiates LED lights to eliminate unwanted germs and bacteria.
Our Unique Methods on Cleanliness
To provide the highest level of cleanliness, we use a heat-sterilization process called "autoclaving" for all our metal tools (just like the dentist’s office). Each set of tools are individually sealed and opened at the beginning of each service to ensure the utmost in sanitation. We use disposable or sanitizable non-metal tools (i.e. file, sanding block) for your peace of mind. Our clients are welcomed to purchase and/or store any non-metal tools (i.e. file, sanding block) on our premises.
