At Creative Nails Too, courteous nail technicians add a little dazzle to hands and feet. Once all 20 fingers and toes have been trimmed and filed, technicians can emboss them in glossy no-chip polishes or carefully paint on intricate designs such as snowflakes or tiny portraits of your favorite Baldwin brother. Once toes and fingers have been freshened up, eyebrow and lip waxes also can be booked to help ensure clients leave with a fresh face to match.
At Eco Nail Lounge, located inside Chazio Salon, the nail technicians refuse to hide beautiful, natural nails beneath plastic counterfeits. Instead, they aim to nurture and restore homegrown nails until they are so strong that clients can impatiently tap on a counter or scale a smooth skyscraper without fear of them breaking.
Their penchant for natural beauty has also led them to use natural nail polish and nontoxic mani-pedi techniques. And their luxurious pedicures nourish limbs with organic ingredients, such as honey and milk, and pomegranate and fig. A seasonal, organic fruit scrub that softens skin can be added to any treatment.
The independent stylists at Main Place Salon usher clients into a sun-filled studio where leafy houseplants are flanked by inset lighting above and sleek hardwood floors below. Within these relaxing confines, heads bask in the attentive services of industry veterans, who harness their decades of experience to bestow cuts, color, and style designs to match the latest trends or the neighbor's couture shrubbery. Each of the staff members enjoys the salon's liberating perks—such as setting their own schedules and vacation time—which allows them to fully enjoy their work and in turn happily create new looks for their clients.
Polish bottles in reds, yellows, pinks, and blues stretch across the mint hued walls like a rainbow, providing fitting decoration as skilled nail technicians deftly shape nail shields to an eye-catching symmetry. Clients can also request specialty nail art in intricate designs such as hearts, stars, or Picasso-esque representations of Lounge owner Anna Batkhuu.
