SheLax Nail Studio may be new, but Maria Desembly has been in the nail business for more than 11 years. A background in health care directs Maria's gentle, hygienic touch as she tidies up the fingers and toes of both men and women. After filing, shaping, and buffing, she can outfit all 20 tappers with basic polish or safeguard their shine with acrylics or Shellac, which resists chips, nicks, and the urge to plunge into freshly frosted birthday cakes for far longer.
Treatments and experiences are one at the same at All Nailed Up by Dana. Take, for instance, the Hawaiian Tropical mani-pedi. Just one of the salon's featured services, it includes an exfoliating sugar scrub and aromatherapuetic mask to accompany the traditional nail care treatments. Other nail treatments here include hot stone massages, warm paraffin applications, and gel manicures.
At Studio B @ LaTouch Beauty Salon, Bethanny Johnson stays on top of the latest manicure and pedicure trends for her clients. She pampers hands and feet with champagne, rose-petal, and milk-and-honey mani-pedis, all of which relax and soften skin. She tops off nails with lacquer ranging in color from classic pink to neon green and offers premium Shellac nail polish, which protects against chips for up to two weeks.
Ashely, the manager of Zen Lounge, creates a tranquil space for minds to rest while she works on beautifying bodies. She specializes in skin and nail treatments, creating elaborate nail art with a steady hand, glue, and a variety of mini-accessories. She also performs full-body massages, ideal for disposing of the day's tensions or getting relief from chronic pain.
