Best Manicurist 

Marie Novak

For 57 years, Marie Novak has filed, buffed, and painted the fingernails of Clevelanders. The energetic 76-year-old received her manicure license in 1947 and has been filing away ever since. Her loyal customers say she's the best because her technique is old-school and her attention to detail is second to none. Today, The Madame of Manicures is semiretired; she works as an independent manicurist from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays at Ecclipse Hair Inc. at Eastgate Plaza in Mayfield Heights, offering natural-nail manicures ($25), buffing, and hot-oil treatments. Her services are the best in town, so don't expect to get a same-day appointment when you call; Novak's little black book is usually scheduled several weeks in advance.
