At Tips-N-Toes, Caroline Graves tends to hands and feet with natural-nail services and reflexology treatments. Her specialty nail services change seasonally?for instance, summer pedicures might include a refreshing peppermint clay mask, whereas fall might feature a gingerbread pumpkin-pie mani-pedi. No matter the season, Caroline uses high-quality lacquers from OPI, Julep, Venique, and Gelish. Nailcare services are enhanced by reflexology treatments, which stimulate reflex points on the hands and feet that are connected to specific organ systems. Reflexology helps reduce pain, improve circulation, and promote relaxation.
A table of manicure stations sits directly opposite the row of padded pedicure chairs at Simply Nails by Lisa, establishing the salon’s almost singular commitment to reinvigorating spa services for the hands and feet. In addition to trimming nails and applying vibrant coats of polish, the staff members also pamper their clients with treatments such as towel wraps, hot-lotion massages, and exfoliating sea-salt scrubs. As the nail techs gussy up digits, the salon’s aestheticians cater to a variety of cosmetic concerns with facials designed to smoothen skin and waxing treatments that leave chosen body areas as hairless as a sasquatch who lost a bet.
Manicures at Salon de Union begin with a soak in mint leaf water, and that's just the beginning of the pampering. The session continues with warm basalt stones and massages with lavender lotions. Then of course comes the grooming and polishing, leaving hands as soft and clean as the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man after a long shower. Pedicures follow a similar protocol, and all services here are rendered with equal attention to creature comforts and outward beauty. The salon's other services include massage from a licensed therapist, eye brows, eye lashes tinting and honey wax hair removal.

Etude Nail pampers and beautifies hands and feet with an array of nailcare services. The Rose deluxe pedicure, for instance, follows a soothing soak in rosebuds and petals with a honey scrub, 10-minute massage, and paraffin dip. In addition to tending to nails, Etude uses wax to remove hair from all over the body with gentle precision.
Rock & Polish boasts a unique dual purpose. Billed as a "pamper bar by day, event space by night," the stylish 900-square-foot facility hosts dinner parties, baby showers, and other social gatherings beneath its handmade glass chandeliers, but it also offers a full slate of sophisticated spa offerings.
On the spa side, the staff focuses on natural nail care. Though customers can opt for gel nails, the nail techs won't apply acrylics or glue man-made wigs onto fingers. In fact, nail techs even take time to teach clients how to strengthen nails that have been ravaged by chemical treatments and acrylics. Mani-pedis are available for both men and women, and clients can add on services such as paraffin, massage, and custom nail art. Lash extensions and waxing round out the treatment menu, providing options for hard wax, honey wax, or creme wax (for sensitive skin), so spa-goers can get pampered from head to toe.
