Xpressions of Beauty's owner Alethea McGhee employs her years as a manicurist and nail-technology instructor to primp digit tips with the utmost care. Deluxe manicures begin as the manicurist meticulously trims nails, buffs them to a satiny sheen, and teaches them to speak French. An exfoliating sugar scrub and relaxing massage then rejuvenate weary arms from hand to elbow. Fingers find moisture after a quick soak in warm paraffin, which imbues hands with a radiant glow that matches the crystalline polish at their tips and the melted mercury clutched within their fists.

Hands and feet also receive pampering treatments, as Francis lavishes skin with fruit-based scrubs, hot oils, and sea-salt soaks.
