Akari is offering free express manicures outside its Middle Street shop until 4 p.m. today.


We walked by to find a woman getting her mani on at a nicely shaded outdoor table. The manicures are on a first come, first served basis. But it the seat is taken, there's no reason you can't enjoy the complimentary champagne and cupcakes inside.


We're told Akari will be doing something similar every Friday.

Akari is located at 193 Middle Street, Portland (just around the corner from the Nickelodeon). FMI: or (207) 772-9060
