The nail technicians at We Nailed It! enhance toes and fingertips within My Salon Suite. After trimming nails and taming cuticles, staffers daub natural nails with classic polishes from Essie and OPI or adhere and fill steadfast acrylic nails. They also exfoliate hands and feet with orange-scented scrubs nourish dry skin and help hands with their Madame Tussauds auditions.
Calling on skin-safe supplies such as cosmeceutical-grade serums from Image like their Ormedic organic formulas, paramedical aesthetician Michele Gordy tends to clients' faces with services that include facials, peels, and microdermabrasion treatments. From her post within Victoria's Regal Nails, Michele begins every appointment with a consultation and detailed skin analysis to understand the unique issues and individual needs of each client's skin. She then tailors her services to treat conditions ranging from unsightly acne to stubborn paint left on former Blue Man Group members.
Peppermint and pure sugar cane are on the menu, but they're not for eating. The peppermint fragrances a warm footbath, and the pure sugar cane acts as scrub for lips or tongues with no self-control. These indulgent ingredients appear in various services at Serenity Day Spa and Gifts, where guests can spend up to a full day relaxing and beautifying with spa packages that combine mani-pedis, facials, and massages. Body-contouring wraps detoxify while they tighten and tone skin, and specially designed facials address the common skincare concerns of men, women, and teens.
Bare Spa pampers patrons with a broad array of relaxing and beautifying treatments. Melt stress out of achy muscles with the 30-minute spot massage, during which an experienced therapist's nimble fingers dance across carcasses to leave muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet. Aestheticians rejuvenate tired faces with the 30-minute spot facial, which focuses on the essential elements of visage renewal. The treatment cleanses faces of dirt and grime before a gentle exfoliation lifts away dead skin cells to reveal the resplendently young skin beneath. Extractions help purify pores, and a mask and moisturizer tone dermal surfaces. Eye gel reframes peepers, eliminating bags and circles, and sun protection shields delicate skin from harsh solar rays and the radioactive radiance of Europe’s mutant sun kings.
Nail nurturers at Fashion Nails & Spa restore paws’ sense of pride with pampering mani-pedi services that shape and shine. Technicians smooth ragged edges, revealing renewed contours and retractable claws. Soothing cuticle care calms anxious nails, and a relaxing massage releases stress built up after learning one too many secret handshakes. An exfoliating pumice scrub banishes calluses from footprints, followed by a moisturizing mango massage. Warm towels and carefully placed hot stones nurture foot flexibility, their radiant heat slackening tight tendons to prep tootsies for hoofing around town or winning the luau’s coal-walking contest. Once soothed and smoothed, fingers and toes can opt for a natural look with buffing or cloak themselves in rainbow threads with colored polish. Today’s deal can also be applied toward upgraded services such as a french manicure ($3 additional).
