Pamela Golightly was "green" before it was cool. The natural nail-care specialist has long been dedicated to eco-friendly practices since she began her career in 1986, ?servicing the community for more than 28 years? and utilizing paper wraps instead of fiberglass wraps and filing nails by hand rather than relying on electric files or coal-guzzling robots. Her thoughtful, all-natural approach to nail care has resulted in a slew of dedicated return customers. Unlike other processes that depend on heavy chemical use, her organic approach results in zero incidents of nail damage, mold, or adverse reactions from allergy-prone cuticles. Pamela's natural approach helps nail services last up to two weeks. This same awareness carries over into her community endeavors, including her frequent contributions to local schools and nonprofit organizations.

Massaged with lotion, swaddled in hot towels, dunked in warm oils, or submerged in melted paraffin, fingers and toes take it easy here. This is Sen Beauty & Spa, where nail technicians incorporate a wealth of relaxing spa extras. After donning gels or polishes, many duck into one of the private treatment rooms for a leg wax or a brow-threading session. Others skip out of the sunny, light blue spa to show off new manicures.
Inside My Angel Nails, skilled technicians dote on fingers and toes, shaping and filing nails before removing stray cuticles and applying a coat of color. They also complement traditional mani-pedis with a hand and foot massage, as well as a hot-towel wrap. Deluxe mani-pedis go even further by softening skin with an exfoliating scrub and a dip in warm paraffin wax. The technicians can also dazzle with glitter tips or add length with silk, acrylic, or gel tips. Staffers perform waxing on various areas of the body as well, including the face, bikini line, abdomen, and secret second abdomen.
Located within the Beauty Source, Don't Be Pedi Nail Salon, LLC 's owner and licensed nail technician, Mindy Alcutt, enhances hands and feet and adds glam to appendages with nailcare and body-decorating services. Alcutt meticulously grooms nails with a variety of manicures and pedicures and creates longer nails by applying acrylic. She also puts sparkle in lobes with ear-piercing services and adds extra dazzle with body-glitter tattoos of fairies or likenesses of glitter.
