Giant gold frames wrap around mirrors resting above the pedicure chairs and manicure tables that line Divine Nails & Spa?s beige walls, reflecting shiny Shellac and traditional polishes daubed by a team of affable staffers. Clients nestle into plush pedicure thrones while feet soak in a pool of warm water carefully patrolled by miniature lifeguards as techs treat feet to one of eight specialty pedicures. They shape fingernails into desired squares or points before coating them with conventional polish or Shellac, which imparts a mirror finish that lasts for up to 14 days without chipping. Divine Nails & Spa also ushers guests into a private room draped with gauzy curtains for eyebrow, lip, arm, leg, and bikini waxes. Clients awaiting service relax atop black leather furniture, surrounded by houseplants waiting for their roots to be groomed and polished.
If you literally put Redken and Schwarzkopf products in a tool belt, you might get your tool belt all goopy. But Golden Touch Salon’s skilled stylist Janna Scalisi metaphorically has those products in her tool belt, and she uses them, along with more than five years of experience, to craft beautiful styles customized to each of her clients. Janna can ramp up strands with color highlights or customize an all-over color to match a sweater. Golden Touch Salon also presents a slate of non-hair services, which range from waxing and facials to mani-pedis and restorative bodywork.
Metro Nails invites weary guests to relax under the massaging ministrations of gleaming white and maroon pedicure chairs as techs pamper and polish digits through various treatments. Classic mani-pedis see finger- and toenails transformed with cuticle care and meticulous filing, and French mani-pedis cap each finger with their iconic white tips and each toe with a crusty heel of bread. Customers can select their finishing color of choice from rows of OPI, Essie, and LeChat polish, or opt for CND Shellac to score shine that withstands chips and scratches for up to 14 days.
Colorful Chinese artwork and intricate wooden panels festoon the walls inside Cherry Blossom Spa & Foot Reflexology. Relaxing music slowly bounces from wall to wall inside the traditional Chinese spa as nail technicians paint keratin sheets in vibrant nail polish colors. They also gently tackle head, neck, and stomach aches using foot reflexology and papier-mâché voodoo dolls.
