The walls are lavender. The doors are lavender. The smell might even be lavender. But here's the thing—Lavenders Nail & Tanning Studio is serious about the entire spectrum of colors, from bronzed skin tones to kaleidoscopically vivid nail polishes. Eight tanning beds install fresh-from-the-space-station glows with UV-light systems, while airbrush artists coat clients form head-to-toe without harsh aftereffects. Optional red-light therapy beds stimulate collagen to keep skin youthful by diminishing sun spots, hyperpigmentation, and other blemishes. Nearby, nail techs can coat nails in solid colors, polka-dot patterns, or collages that feature glitter and decals. However classic or daring clients want their nails to look, the savvy staff at Lavenders listens closely and delivers artful results.
