Castle Nail Spa is well-named, as the nail and beauty emporium is truly castle-like, characterized by the dangling crystal chandeliers and the the throne-like spa pedicure chairs grouped under dramatically lit statues. Here, licensed aestheticians treat guests like royalty with spa mani-pedis, facials, and teeth whitening, each of which are enhanced by aromatherapy, to the sounds of classical piano?the only instrument truly worthy of a queen. Luxuriate in a Royal pedicure, which includes an aromatic foot soak and a 15-massage with a mud mask, or fight acne with the Acne Complex facial, which uses fruit enzymes to clear pores. The staff also gussies up nails with gel polish decked in inlay arts, defuzzes bodies with Brazilian waxing, and pumps up winks with eyelash extensions.
At Blossoming Healthy Nails, located inside of Town Creeks Salon, nail technician Timeko M. Murry enhances the strength and look of natural nails. As a certified OPI educator with nearly two decades of experience, she knows how to care for any type of nail, be it brittle, cracked, or covered in chalkboard dust. In lieu of acrylics, she offers odor-free gel enhancements that protect nails and resist chipping. During other nail services, such as the signature and sports pedicure, she exfoliates and massages skin with a sugar scrub.
An eco-friendly, organic nail boutique, Salon Boutique uses only all-natural, organic ingredients during hand and foot treatments. Rain forest dead sea salt, sweet almond oil, and Australian tea tree oil are just a few of the soothing ingredients that the staff uses during treatments. Floral and fruity aromas drift through the salon, augmenting pamper-friendly atmosphere. During the Sea of Life pedicure, peppermint dead sea salts stimulate circulation. Then, a nourishing application of peppermint foot cream and a quick hot rock treatment freshen feet much more sensibly than dancing in gravel while eating peppermint patties.
Nail Care doesn’t believe in acrylics. Instead, the spa’s technicians cater to the nail’s natural beauty with services and eco-friendly products geared toward enhancement, rather than replacement. Files and buffers are never reused and always sterilized to prevent the spread of bacteria. That said, it’s the indulgent services that make an impression. While relaxing to music in a cozy reclining chair, clients can melt to a relaxing reflexology session or restore finger shields to their natural vibrancy with extracts of peppermint, honey, or lavender.
Despite a base of loyal returning customers, licensed manicurist Kathy Engle continues to educate herself in the latest nail trends in order to attract new business. She has broadened her repertoire over a 20-year career to include spa pedicures, long-lasting Shellac manicures, and talon trimming for local Renaissance Faire hawks. She maintains Legacy Salon at a self-set high standard of cleanliness and strives to curate a friendly rapport with clients.
