At Nail Tek by Qi Spa, the polish is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. The spa's manicures and pedicures rewrite the book on relaxation, each starting with a hand soak and a massage to lure cuticles into a false sense of security. Then, the technician files each nail tip into a perfect crescent and applies polish in your choice of color. Pedicures here are especially indulgent, as whirlpool spa chairs ready feet for callus removal and an exfoliating sugar scrub seals the deal. The spa also features a full suite of waxing services.
The long row of white-on-white pedicure chairs at Beauzen Nail Salon, with its plush seats and sparkling foot bath bowls, foreshadows the luxurious experience to come. Here, nail technicians spoil the extremities with treatments such as dream pedicures, which soothe aching muscles and soften rough calluses or marine spa pedicures, which soothe conditions such as dry and cracking skin or scurvy. The technicians put all of their focus on fingers and toes, often incorporating extras such as neck massages or paraffin treatments to leave skin healthy and soft.
Fresh stays true to its name by staying on top of beauty-industry trends. The salon's mani-pedis, which were featured in a FOX 31 "Beauty Ambush" segment and in The Knot, beautify nails with ultra fashionable Kevin Murphy and Deborah Lippmann polish.
In addition to refreshing nails, Fresh reinvigorates styles with blowouts, waxing, and lash extensions, often using a line of products and supplies made in the United States. Fresh also pampers kids alongside their moms, offering kid-friendly mani-pedis and fun hair braids.
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.
Lavender Medical & Beauty Spa is a comprehensive nexus of beauty and well-being where facials, massage, and injectables meet nail- and haircare. Spray tanning and teeth whitening ensure that no cosmetic stone is left unturned, and specialty services introduce bodies to ancient, oft unheard-of treatments, such as a Russian banya—a detoxifying, herb-infused sauna designed to open the pores and their mail while ridding bodies of excess salt and lactic acid. Sound-therapy pedicure chairs use a vibrational flow of music to massage backs and lull tired tendons to sleep as whirlpools maintained according to strict hygiene policies swaddle and soften hard-working feet.
