When the most basic pedicure offered includes a thorough foot massage, you know you're at a nail salon that values indulgence. And the pampering continues throughout each session at The Pedi Spa, as feet are treated to warm bubble soaks and fragrant exfoliation treatments. After toes have been transformed into perfectly relaxed puddles, nail technicians apply glossy coats of polish before sending patrons on their way.
The popularity of Viva Glam Salon's beauty treatments among brides led to it earning a spot on the Knot's 2012 Best of Weddings list. Regular clients can benefit from the stylists' experience and attention to detail during ammonia-free color treatments and formaldehyde-free Brazilian blowouts. Styling services can replicate glamorous looks from different eras: stylists perform traditional updos, vintage finger waves, and modern braids and fishtails. In the makeup chair, stylists perfect complexions with traditional and airbrush applications, ensuring clients look their best before a driver's license photo or cheekbone-modeling session.
The techs at Polished Nail Lounge approach nails like artists do a blank canvas. Working closely with clients to create designs that express their individual personalities, the nail experts apply acrylics and chip-resistant gel polishes as well as intricate, colorful 3-D-art sets to fingertips. These sets may include the use of crystals, stones, or customized, original brush art.
Soothing music and aromatherapy essences waft through The Pedi Spa, a pedicure-focused spa in which clients can recline in leather chairs perched beneath fabric canopies and hanging lamps. As guests sip glasses of sparkling water, technicians attend to extremities with one of nine luxurious pedicures, soaking feet to soften coarse heels and unwind the mind like a ball of yarn crowd-surfing across a sea of massage therapists. Guests can also indulge digits with manicures.
A visit to Nail Club LLC is a bit like visiting a fairy godmother. Clients arrive with drab nails and seemingly enchanted forests of body hair and leave with gleaming digits and freshly waxed skin. To effect this transformation, aestheticians turn to OPI and Essie polishes, and Shellac and gel treatments. While the techs work their magic, guests can take a spin on the salon’s iPads.
The rustic stone façade of Peace Nails & Spa belies the modern techniques used within to beautify skin and nails. Clients look at ranks of traditional and gel polishes on a mosaic-decorated display before swiveling in manicure stations’ royal blue chairs. Cushioned pedicure chairs help patrons relax as staffers buff away calluses or treat feet to lavender and aloe treatments. While emery boards rasp quietly, classic or french pedicures leave feet beautiful for when you don flip-flops or realize nobody can see if you’re wearing shoes behind a news desk. The shelves at the shop also brim with waxes for removing hair from faces, appendages, and bikini areas.
