Carlene Francis helms her boutique, Nails by Carlene, with a friendly demeanor bolstered by a self-proclaimed “Caribbean sway.” The passionate digit artist gussies up finger- and toenails with colorful gel fills in a range of patterns and designs, from zebra stripes to Rorschach tests. Hands and feet also receive pampering treatments, as Francis lavishes skin with fruit-based scrubs, hot oils, and sea-salt soaks.
The technicians at Amy's Right Touch beautify nails with vibrant coats of polish and artistic designs. Long-lasting gel and Shellac varnishes resist chips for up to two weeks, whereas acrylic tips add length and strength. But these techs don't limit their attention to fingers and toes. They also offer massage, waxing, and facials, and enhance features with permanent makeup and natural-looking eyelash extensions.
Orchids and other plants accent the earth-toned walls of Couture Salon of Chattanooga, where beauty pros pamper clients from head to toenail with a full menu of hair services and mani-pedis. The salon's staff members flatter features with precision haircuts and doses of color and get nails ready for thumb wrestling championships with artful coats of polish.
