Shellac Manicure in Albany

Select Local Merchants

The Nail Shop on Solano Avenue’s team of technicians wields a decade of experience to cosset nails and de-fuzz skin in an immaculate spa setting. Hands luxuriate in hot-towel wraps and lotion massages as filed fingernails revel beneath daubs of bright polish, including chip-resistant Shellac and gel formulas. Lemon-scented sea salts, invigorating pumice treatments, and hot-stone massages whisk away dull skin, tension, and stuck-on bowling shoes from frazzled feet. And, within a discreet private room, aestheticians depilate unwanted fuzz from faces and bodies with layers of powerful wax. Guests sip gratis glasses of water, tea, or coffee as they let newly polished digits surf complimentary wireless Internet, flip through current magazines, and practice tap-dance routines for miniature Broadway revues.

During its 20 years in business, Meilin Salon & Spa has drawn its share of loyal clients, including one who travels from out of town just for a session in stylist/owner Amy?s chair. Chalk these allegiances up to the artistic stylists, who forego cookie-cutter services for customized treatments that take into account each client?s personal style and favorite shampoo flavor. Then there?s the atmosphere?saffron-colored walls evoke feelings of escape that are only elevated by the smell of organic oils, teas, candles, and all-natural fragrances. And, of course, there are the treatments themselves; haircuts, coloring services, and relaxing scalp massages incorporate all-natural hair care products, while relaxing massages, full body masques, mani-pedis, and facials leave clients feeling pampered from head to toe.

The Nail Shop's signature finger- and toe-helmet-buffing procedure covers all the keratin bases. Cuticles become cute, nail edges assume supple shapes, nails don bright glossy new coats, and hands and feet are gently kneaded, like hard-boiled eggs under the Easter Bunny's paw. The deluxe version of the pedicure incorporates an exfoliating aloe-vera pumice scrub and a tingly peppermint masque and elegantly extends the hoof-rub to ten mollycoddling minutes, scented with the lotion of your choice. The deluxe manicure also ups the phalange-ante, sloughing off dead skin with a crystalline citrus rub and nourishing it from roof to basement with vitamin E cream. Both deluxe procedures are concluded with a warm towel wrap.
