Margarita Pinkhasova?a.k.a., Rita of Rita's Nail?pretties up fingers and toes from the comforts of Arbach's Goodhair Salon. With long-lasting beauty in mind, Rita artfully applies traditional and shellac polish that can remain chip-free for up to two weeks. She also tames unruly brows and smoothens out other facial areas with swift yet gentle waxing sessions.
The word radiant doesn't even begin to do justice to the artful nail designs created at Radiant Nail & Spa. Here, there's virtually no limit to the nail techs' creativity. After filing and shaping nails, the team sets to work getting imaginative, often creating acrylic designs in neon, tiger-print tips, or even holiday-themed art with glitter polish. Of course, they can also keep things elegant and simple, capping fingernails and toenails with french tips or shellac polish, which resists chips and scratches far longer than traditional polish or traditional law-enforcement polish made of Kevlar.
Soho Nails understands creature comforts: heated pedicure chairs, whirlpool massage chairs, and attentive pampering with each mani-pedi are afew perks offered here. During all mani-pedis, for instance, technicians lead with soaks, massages, cuticle trimming, and nail growth stimulators before applying their fast drying polish. And then there are the spa pedicures, which include cooling gels, hot stone massages, and a leg mask and scrub with a choice of flavors such as rose, lavender, and tangerine zest. They also sell polishes and base coats for clients to take home, and equip their space with AutoClave Sterilizers and an advanced ventilation system to ensure that both the utensils and the air is clean and sanitary.
When it comes to a good manicure, experience counts. That’s why all polished tips point to Elite Nails owner Elisa Garcia, who has spent the last 19 years perfecting her nail-polishing technique. Beyond basic polish changes and mani-pedis for both men and women, she specializes in acrylic enhancements, which come natural, French tipped, capped in colorful glitter, or rolled in fresh powdered sugar. To prevent lifting, she uses acrylic products from Creative Nail Design, which also guard against yellowing to keep nails looking new for longer.
