Specializing in pink-and-white solar nails, Regal Nails Salon & Spa treats its clients' digits like royalty by pampering fingernails and toenails. A coat of lacquer from Regal's colorful selection of long-lasting gel polish tops manicures and resists chips and scratches for up to two weeks. Soaks in footbaths kick off relaxing spa pedicures that conclude with a coat of shiny polish.
Inside Couture Salon Suites, Candice Byers pampers hands and feet. After trimming cuticles and filing down talons, she paints classic lacquer and chip-resistant gel polish onto fingernails and toenails. In addition to decorating natural nails, she also uses acrylics to cover extra shy digits.
The long row of leather pedicure chairs isn’t the token of luxury at The Nail Retreat. Not only do clients leave sporting polish from the salon’s kaleidoscopic array of shades from OPI, Shellac, or Gelish, they also have the option to indulge in manicures with botanically derived grape-seed oils or pedicures with soothing hot stones. Additionally, skincare treatments combine custom blends of products to cleanse, tone, and exfoliate the dermal layers, leaving faces looking as robust and hydrated as an ice sculpture of Hulk Hogan.
For more than 28 years, stylist Luann Albert has helped clients—including three former Ohio State Buckeyes quarterbacks—get ready for getting seen. Her crack-team of 12 stylists and cosmetologists operate out of a homey studio, full of throw rugs, curio cabinets, and hardwood floors with absolutely no telltale hearts beneath them. Luann cuts and styles hair, but also levels up manes with keratin smoothing sessions and permanent-wave treatments.
Within private and semiprivate rooms, staffers rejuvenate the non-scalp parts of clients with four facials that use Bioelements products, five nail services, and a range of massages, such as the deep-tissue, hot-stone, or less-practiced heavy-boulder massage developed at the Wile E. Coyote School of Beauty.:m]]
