Situated inside an historic house, Powder Room builds on the vintage charm of its surroundings with elegant arm chairs and brocade fabrics. Still, there are enough modern touches here to create a luxurious spa atmosphere that anyone can feel comfortable in. The spa's private rooms house relaxing massage beds and professional products used to cleanse pores during facials. There are also two nail stations where technicians outfit hands and feet with vibrant colors, ombre glitter, or protective knight gloves. As if all that weren't enough, freshly brewed coffee and tea fill the air with soothing aromas.
Clarence and Carol Sims, the talented duo behind U Nailed It Spa Retreat, believe that healthy, beautiful fingernails and toenails constitute a powerful fashion statement. They start each mani-pedi by grooming and shaping nails, then move on to applying polish. This is where they like to get creative; their polishes come in every color of the rainbow, and their designs range from chevron stripes to tiny numbers that help with counting. To further enhance mani-pedis, the nail artists can attach faux crystals, gold beads, and plastic flowers.
