Virginia Griffin owns Kismet Nails, a hidden gem concerned with sculpting and polishing nails with an expertise that comes from ten years of experience. She coats nails with solid-color shellac or turns each surface into unique works of art that can feature everything from arabesque designs to diamond-studded patterns.
While she generally conducts business from within the salon, Virginia also hits the road for mobile services, meeting clients in homes or offices. She even puts aside entire days to take care of bridal, birthday, or little princess parties, helping clients look their best as they walk down the aisle, grow a year older, or usurp their mothers’ thrones.
The add-ons are half the fun at Nails by Rita. Rita Rivera, a nail technician for nearly five years, offers plenty of options that turn nail grooming into an indulgence. These include hot-stone massages, warm paraffin dips, and hand, foot, arm, and leg massages. That's not to discount her regular services though. Even Rita's pedicures and manicures include foot and leg, or hand and arm massages, respectively, in addition to her attentive nail work, which gets fingers and toes looking as well-groomed as a landscaper's desktop Zen garden. Rita also offers reflexology treatments as well as facial waxing.
The pedicure selection at TMM Signature Nails Spa reads more like a drink menu than a spa menu. The Chardonnay pedicure moisturizes feet with essential oils and a peppermint sea-salt foot soak, while the Lemon Drop pedicure warms skin with hot towels, warmed lotion, and a lemon mask. TMM's nail technicians also perform a variety of manicures—including gel and regular—and nail enhancements such as acrylics and pearl tips. Clients can complete their mini makeovers with body waxing, eyelash extensions, and inflatable muscle suits.
NailGanics Spa owner Katrina Smith has been a nail technician for more than 15 years, and in that time she has embraced using organic products for her manicures and pedicures. She performs more traditional services as well, including acrylic and gel sets, and can also groom faces with brow waxing and individual lash extensions. She is normally found at her space inside Danphyls The Hair Salon, but can also travel to perform onsite treatments for wedding parties or acrobats who don't want to ruin their manicure by walking home on their hands.

At Sweet Desire Nail Lounge, talented nail technicians cater to hands and feet by smoothing calluses, tidying cuticles, and trimming nails. They finish the treatment by applying a coat of polish that comes in a variety of colors. Opt for a Shellac manicure and staff members will use a polish that dries almost instantly and lasts for up to two weeks without chipping or getting homesick. While technicians soften the skin and glam up nails, clients can relax in pedicure thrones and sip on cold lemon water.
