Editor’s Choice: The Sweet Life Nail Bar and Lounge, 2373 Central Park Blvd., Suite
105, 720-496-4565, sweetlifenailbar.co

If there weren’t 200 bottles of nail polish in the entryway, you might confuse the Sweet Life for a chic LoDo bar. Dressed in grays, whites, and blues, this Stapleton-based nail shop is upbeat, elegant, and inviting.

Plus, with a drink menu that rivals your favorite Friday-night haunt, the Sweet Life caters to women looking for a little relaxation in a glass (we enjoyed a glass of Ménage à Trois, $8) along with the kind they’re getting for their hands and feet (we recommend the Essential Plus mani and pedi, $65 booked together).

Pick up the July issue of 5280 for the entire list of this year’s winners.
