Manicurists are fighting back against a tough-as-nails businesswoman who runs her mani-pedi empire with an iron fist.

Oh, but that’s not all. Later on in Daniel Beekman’s article, there’s mention of Envy Nails chain owner Anna Do¬†squeezing employees “under her thumb” and reference to practices designed to keep an army of manicurists at dozens of NYC area locations “on their toes.”

The class-action lawsuit and alleged claims of immigrant worker abuse are serious. But these¬†NYDN puns, which require all fingers of one well-manicured hand to be counted, are entirely frivolous. And the frivolity gets from FishbowlNY a – that’s right – thumbs up.
