For more than 20 years, nail specialist Lisa Danielle has decorated thousands of nails. In one-on-one sessions, she shows each nail the attention normally reserved for needlepoint or an overachieving youngest child. OPI and China Glaze polishes work to brighten fingernails.
Polished’s all-out manicure soothes skin and smoothes gnarled nails. A citrus exfoliation treatment washes out dead skin cells and unclogs packed pores, while a paraffin dip bathes hands in a warm wax to relieve stiff joints and muscles. Nails are filed and styled, and an orange-perfumed hand and arm massage refreshes like a cool breeze whispering through an Ocala orange grove.
At No1 Nails Spa, cleanliness and indulgence go hand in hand. While nail technicians pamper clients with calming masks, lotion massages, and OPI polishes, a second prep team keeps busy behind the scenes, changing out pedicure tubs, sterilizing and swapping equipment, and bringing new tools as needed. These staffers help ensure that the spa stays sparkling and well above state standards, but more importantly, they allow their coworkers to focus all of their attention on one task: beautifying every single digit on every hand and foot that walks through the door.
The path to polished nails passes through deluxe treatments such as the hot-stone spa pedicure, which soothes with an exfoliating sea-salt scrub and hot-stone massage. Fingers enjoy services including the royal galvanic deluxe manicure, an anti-aging procedure that combines special gel and Nu Skin galvanic spa instruments to soften skin and reduce the idle doodles of time. No1 Nails Spa carries acrylic, UV gel, and pink-and-white nails, and rounds out its extensive menu with microdermabrasions, facials, and children’s mani-pedis.
Nail Bar Spa primps and pampers clients with a range of nail-care services alongside complimentary drinks. While visitors relax in cushy pedicure chairs or rest hands on granite tabletops, nail techs perform treatments that range from tropical enzyme-induced exfoliation to skin-rejuvenating clay masks. Then, even coats of OPI or Essie polish get nails looking thumb-war ready. For a more extensive revamp, purifying facials and smoothing waxing services are also available.
Queen City Nail Bar & Boutique is a nail bar in more ways than one. Nail technicians, of course, exfoliate skin, trim cuticles, and shape nails during manicures and pedicures. But they also have glasses of wine and beer available for purchase so clients can sip while they get their nails done. As for the "boutique" part of its name, Queen City stocks Traci Lynn jewelry, Mary Kay cosmetics, and take-home spa products.
The nail stylists of Cole' Nail Spa do much more than just polish nails. They transform digits into art. Their nail services range from the elegant and classic pink-and-white nail polish to three-dimensional nail art complete with gemstones or popular cartoon characters. They also pamper fingers and toes with sugar scrubs, massages, and chocolate mineral hand soaks.
