In-Office Manicures Are Coming to a Conference Room Near You

Manicube is one of those "Why didn't I think of that?" ideas: a service that brings manicures into offices for busy working women. Companies set up a standing weekly visit for $15 per person—kind of like the way some cushy offices host in-house yoga. Each manicure takes 15 minutes, not counting drying time, so it's about as quick as a coffee break. Right now, Manicube exists in New York and Boston, but they're eyeing San Francisco and planning a broader national expansion from there.

The company was kind enough to give us a free trial in our New York City headquarters in advance of Thursday night's Racked Awards party. The verdict: two-impeccably painted thumbs up.
