The staff at Modern Nails believes in the importance of regular manicures and pedicures to keep nails healthy, strong, and well-groomed. Each day, clients enter the salon and are greeted by the smiling faces of skilled technicians who perform a plethora of nail-related services, from simple polish switches to avocado-rosemary manicures and luxurious European pedicures with whirlpool spas. They also apply acrylic and gel nails as well as silk wraps, which strengthen nails and provide jobs for out-of-work silkworms. Though the staffers are mostly dedicated to nail services, they also offer body waxing, threading, and eyelash extensions.

Stepping into Metropolitan Nail Bar is like entering a modish 1960s club. Bright-red retro loveseats groove in the waiting area. Black lights dapple patches of the spa in their electric glow. Cushy camel benches line the walls, with whirlpool tubs below each station. To entertain guests, a flat-screen TV faces a circular chrome bar and blue-light drying station.

If posh environs weren’t sufficient to make visitors feel like VIPs, the savvy crew of nail techs augments services with indulgent extras usually reserved for celebrities and presidential ghosts. Manicures and cocktail-themed pedicures come with hot-towel wraps and massages, and optional add-ons include reflexology and acupressure foot treatments.

During a signature W Nails & Spa pedicure, warmed river stones glide across legs for a treatment that’s part massage, part pedicure, and part acupressure stimulation. Other pampering pedicures use ingredients ranging from warm nectar honey balm to marine mud masks. Along with pedicures, the staff members beautify hands with manicures, remove unwanted facial and body hair with waxes, and tint eyelashes and brows for elegant yet sassy eye rolling. In the spa’s interior, yellow sconces shine upon eggshell-white walls, and pedicure thrones feature soft white leather and brown armrests. Elsewhere, rows of manicure stations are near a wall with a flat-screen TV the size of Rhode Island.

Staffed by a team of professionals that deliver everything from haute new hairstyles to eyelash extensions, Yvonne's Day Spa has received particular attention from sources such as MSNBC's Today Show for its unique Fish-y-cure pedicures, which rely on tropical fish to exfoliate feet. Toothless Garra rufa, or doctor fish, hail from the freshwater world's top medical schools, but have been invited stateside for the gentle way they nibble dead skin from between the toes, as guests relax into a leather massage chair and dangle their feet in the creature's warm, watery habitat. After watching the treatment soar to popularity, and dedicating countless hours to learning to breed and care for his tiny aestheticians, co-owner John Ho franchised the idea and made it the signature of all Yvonne's locations. CBS rated the spa's manicures and pedicures as among the best in the DC area in 2011, as they extend beyond the aquarium to include OPI products and high-tech UV gel?curing methods. Stylists offer guests soda and coffee before offering scalps nourishing sips from bottles of hair care products including Goldwell, Nexxus, Matrix, and Paul Mitchell. Hot stones and glass cups gain healing powers in the hands of Yvonne's massage therapists, and ingredients including sea salt, honey, and cappuccino lotion infuse many treatments to leave skin glowing with health and ready for a snack.
