Here's a tip for those of you who are sensitive to those inescapable nail salon fumes: One of the city's top-rated nail salons on Yelp, Rittenhouse's Tierra Mia uses only water-based, non-toxic nail polishes infused with natural fragrance from coconuts and mangos. But take note: Services here require an appointment and pedis start at a steep $39. [Tierra Mia]
