Next to beauty, health and safety are top priorities at King Nail Spa, which is why it recently renovated and added a room dedicated solely to sanitizing all its equipment in accordance with the standards of the Board of Barbering and Cosmetology and a team of overbearing mothers. In front of a rose-colored wall, rows of plush chairs encourage relaxation while skilled technicians file, trim, and buff fingers and toes, topping them off with glossy finishes from products such as OPI and China Glaze.
If you walked into Diva Nail Lounge with a blindfold on, your nose might mistake the salon for a farmers market. The scents of mint, papaya, chocolate, and avocado drift through the space, wafting from natural scrubs and masks. Feet steep in milk baths dappled with rose petals and slices of citrus fruits, and lavender and rose essential oils condition cuticles. Technicians aren't employing the organic ingredients for their aromas alone—they choose them for their nourishing properties, such as antioxidants that combat aging and proteins that hydrate the skin.
The technicians' devotion to earth-friendly formulas is matched by their commitment to hygiene. The salon doesn't stock spa chairs because of sanitary concerns, and the staff throws away disposable tools after a single use. For example, during each Diva house treatment, techs buff calluses with a new pumice stone. To preserve more durable utensils, they sterilize their surfaces with hospital-grade treatments.
The menu covers luxurious mani-pedi services and add-ons that range from paraffin dips to peppermint clay masks. Treatments typically culminate in vibrant coats of nail polish, including the hues of SpaRitual nail lacquer—shades that avoid synthetic dyes in favor of all-natural colors harvested from the inside of kaleidoscopes.
Pistachio-green walls, exposed white ceilings, and wood fixtures. These airy and earthy tones foster relaxation, but Tiptoes Nail Spa is about more than serenity. It's about green and socially responsible serenity. For all their services, they use high-end products, such as vegan and formaldehyde-free nail polishes. These beauty enhancers are safe for the environment, in addition to being animal cruelty-free.
In plush, black leather pedicure chairs with granite-based footbaths, nail technicians foster relaxation as they exfoliate soles, buff nails, and massage warm lotion into hard-working feet. With great attention to detail, staff members also execute rejuvenating facials and massage. That attention to detail also means keeping waxing treatments ouch-free with applications of topical anesthetics.
Inside Thi Spa & Nails, a regal chandelier scatters sparkling light beams across bottles of high-quality products for skin, nail, massage, and waxing services. Nail technicians stand by to shape and shade nails during classic mani-pedis and CND Shellac manicures, which can last for up to two weeks or 14 days, whichever comes first. Facials customized to specific epidermal woes call upon the purifying power of Jan Marini and Dermalogica elixirs, and Novalash extensions cling to indigenous eyelashes. Beautifiers also de-fuzz pampered faces and frames with waxing sessions and heal aching muscles during Swedish and deep-tissue massages. Thi Spa & Nails offers services for both men and women, and gents can peruse a male-specific menu of treatments to keep unwanted follicles off backs, shoulders, and Adam?s apples.
From pink martini sparkle mani-pedis to signature facials, Quince Spa offers exotic treatments in an equally exotic atmosphere. This dimly lit spa exudes tranquility, offering clients a haven to plop down on a cozy massage table for a hot stone massage or let their feet soak in wooden foot baths while they sip complimentary beverages and recline in leather chairs that are partitioned off by Shoji screens. Using products from OPI, Havainas, and Essie, Nail technicians perform ginger tea bamboo sugar mani-pedis, as well as Japanese Yuzu citrus callous removal pedicures and gentlemen’s manicures. Massage therapists, meanwhile, harmonize the mind and body with massages and foot reflexology treatments. The staff also offers eyebrow tinting and facials, helping clients look younger while undoing damage caused by UV rays that whisper insults into pores as they penetrate skin.
As music plays, white scrims separate Pure Envy Spa Bar?s pedicure stations, where stenciled portraits of Audrey Hepburn hang on sea-green walls. There, visitors plunge feet into baths of dutch cocoa, milk and honey, or water spiked with floating lime slices and mint leaves. Nailcare services are far from the only treatments available?a variety of facials soothe different skin types, and hot stones and oils facilitate massages. Waxing helps remove undesired hair more efficiently than trying to shave with a vegetable peeler. The spa boutique also sells OPI polishes, Yon-Ka Paris skincare products, and gift cards.
