Whether you go to the nail salon to unwind or to prepare yourself for an activity-filled day, Bella V Nails has you covered. Those who need to de-stress can plunge their tired feet into a warm footbath and kick back as the nail technician massages feet with a lavender-scented scrub—a scent often used to relieve stress and anxiety. Patrons can also loosen up with a silky chocolate candy mani-pedi, which soothes limbs with a chocolate scrub and mask. For a dose of alertness, techs deploy mint oil—known for its ability to revive flagging energy levels—during the Mint Sensation manicure and pedicure.
A design motif characterized by simple but elegant chandeliers and lemon- and lime-hued walls maintains a sunny ambiance across all three of Nail Day's Denver locations. The charming backdrop puts clients at ease as they hunker down into plush chairs and let aestheticians primp and prettify their hands and feet. To ensure optimal sanitation, Nail Day offers manicure kits that customers can take with them and bring back for each treatment, giving them their own individual file, sanding file, and orangewood stick. In addition, staffers disinfect sinks and tabletops multiple times a day with a hospital-grade germ-killing solution and clean all metal implements through autoclaving, a heat-sterilization method used at medical facilities.

To call The Body Shop a mere skin and body care store is to miss half of what makes it special. Late founder Dame Anita Roddick was a pioneer for ethical business practices; upon opening her first store in Brighton, England, in 1976, she developed company values such as "Defend Human Rights" and "Protect The Planet." She somehow balanced principles and profit, partnering in global campaigns with UNICEF, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, all while ultimately expanding her brand into 2,500 locations in over 60 international markets. After her death in 2007, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, ?She campaigned for green issues for many years before it became fashionable to do so and inspired millions to the cause by bringing sustainable products to a mass market. . . . She was an inspiration.?
Indeed, the Body Shop exhibits an eco-friendliness and social consciousness that's hard to come by in a company of its size. Its products have been fair-trade since 1987, and its Against Animal Testing movement led to an EU-wide ban of animal testing of cosmetics. The products are made from ingredients harvested from around the world: shea butter from Ghana goes into body scrubs and butters, and Indian artisans craft wooden massagers and tote bags that are screenprinted by hand. But all that isn't to say the company's production practices overshadow its final products. Skincare treatments such as the brand?s iconic body butters, facial products, and gift collections often appear in Allure, Marie Claire, Lucky, Seventeen and other national publications.
