At Nail Tech and More, nail-art specialists Dawn, Kandi, and Khym beautify digits with ornate embellishments ranging from Fimo decals to spinning beads. Swarovski crystals, Mylar, and glitter accents set nails a-sparkle, and 3-D designs and junk-nail options turn them into ornate, miniature sculptures. Technicians can even customize nail shape: stiletto nails taper off into fierce points, and corkscrew nails swirl off fingertips and into inconveniently stuck wine corks.
The trio also provides more traditional nailcare services. Manicures spoil hands and feet with treatments such as melted paraffin, hot stones, warm towels, and massages, and acrylic nails and Shellac gel polishes proffer long-lasting color. Alternatively, spray tans and waxing sessions pamper bodies all over.
Elegance Nail Salon offers manicures and pedicures at the salon, but the technician will also pack-up the filers and polishes and bring the pampering treatments to you. In addition to spa and gel mani-pedis, the tech has put together signature packages: the Just the Two of Us package is a romantic spa mani-pedi getaway, during which the mood is set with candles, music, and chocolate, and even offer the option of a CPR-certified babysitter to watch the kids. For children who would rather participate in the pampering than be babysat, Elegance offers Little Diva mani-pedis, and even throws Little Miss Diva parties where children aged 5–12 can get gussied up while gossiping about the classroom goldfish.
Instead of withholding the secrets to healthy nails, the expert staffers at Polish Nail Bar do the unthinkable—they dispense them freely to all who sidle up to the black manicure bar that doubles as a social hub. Owner Crystal Davis and her team of technicians get to know each client personally during sessions by chatting freely as though they were catching up with long-lost friends or robot friends that were dropped in water. Each nail treatment occurs in steps, with manicurists tagging in and out for various parts of the procedure to apply their unique expertise where it counts. Mavala, a cuticle cream made in Switzerland, helps fingers and toes replenish much-needed vitamins and amino acids and delicate ghosts of scent drift from essential oils and jojoba oils. After clients leave, ready to raise their hands during secret-mission briefings with newfound pride, treatment areas and equipment are wiped down with hospital-grade disinfectants that evict lingering germs and odors.
Before the age of billboards, small businesses advertised on knight shields, and really small businesses advertised on fingernails. however, when the staff members at Lux Couture Nails decorate digits, they do so to advertise clients' personal tastes. Patrons may request leopard-print or gold-hued digits on natural nails or opt for acrylics nails. Pampering isn't reserved for fingernails, though. The nail salon also offers soothing pedicures and relaxing massages.
