A cream-colored spa accented by green sprouts, marble, and stone sets the stage for relaxation at Aqua Lifestyle Nail Salon & Spa, where skilled aestheticians bolster beauty with services for the skin, hair, and nails. Wrinkles and furrows fade into oblivion as the staff tightens skin with Lumière LED facials and turns back the clock on sun damage with the lightening peel’s cocktail of lactic acid and brightening serums. Kneeling at the foot of 1 of 17 plush pedicure chairs, a technician culls overgrowing nails, curbs wayward cuticles, and ousts spent skin with a sea-salt scrub, promoting relaxation and the joyful urge to commute via kickline. Among the salon’s other services, airbrush tanning bronzes bodies without UV exposure and gentle head-to-toe waxing treatments strip away hair with warm wax.
Inside the creative and upbeat atmosphere of Adora Bella Salon, independent nail technician and eyelash extensionist Rubie Feliciano maintains a loyal clientele due to her skilled hands, personal attention, and vast array of beautifying services.

Durable shellac coats enhance glove-filling surfaces with a glossy, durable shine that can last for up to two weeks. Rubie also offers traditional spa mani-pedis, performs polish changes, does French nails, and offers an array of gel and acrylic options
