When it comes to polished toes, you have two options: You could break out your own polish collection and go to work on your own, but then you end up looking you painted your toes with well, your toes. Or you could opt for a salon pedicure....and drop a wad of cash on it. And have to leave those shoes you start eyeing on your walk back on the shelf because you just threw down too much cash on your lime green pedi.
Then again, you could always just check out our map on where to snag a cheap mani/pedi in Chicago. That would work too.
