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.
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.
