With more than a decade of experience under her well-sharpened file, nail artist Samantha combines her prodigious digit-grooming skills with her passion for beautifying clients into a menu of nail treatments. With most services named after fairy-tale princesses or their darker counterparts, each nail treatment helps patrons channel the chic, girly style or edgy sass of its namesake instead of trying to lure in fairy godmothers with sad blogs about daily chores. Natural ingredients such as citrus essential oils, menthol and quartz crystals, and pure apple cider work their way into each treatment, coaxing out skin’s natural health and radiance as Samantha massages tired heels and hands. Each treatment can be augmented with acrylic enhancements, nail art, or chip-free Shellac, which allows nails to make a statement for up to two weeks or until mittens come back in style.
