Since 1994, ChrisAnn Truckey has kept her salon free of synthetic odors by relying on a natural approach to nailcare and an arsenal of specialized tools. One such tool grooms and shapes toe-talons during the pedicure, smoothing out any keratin aberrations and extracting feet from the painful concrete shoes they've been wearing since the day they accidentally stepped into a freshly-poured sidewalk. ChrisAnn also takes care of calluses and assuages the aches and cramps that result from athletic activity, high heels, and ill-conceived attempts to combine the two. Finally, a leg exfoliation whisks dead skins cells off your skele-stilts, leaving gams a-gleam.
