The Nail Spot Salon emanates a regal vibe with its rich purple walls and floors, bejeweled decorations, and trompe d'oleil chandeliers. Throw pillows decorated with purple rosettes line the sleek white pedicure station, where stainless steel faucets arch over pristine white basins. There, feet soak in warm water during the salon's signature "Spots" pedicures. Beyond gussying up natural and artificial nails, staffers host a slew of other beautifying services, including waxing, massages, milk and honey masques, eyebrow design, and cosmetics applications.
Even while focusing on just one muscle group, a massage should seek to relax the entire body. That's the idea behind The Core Total Body Salon & Wellness Spa, a holistic healing space that enhances its spa services with natural herbs and essential oils. Whether performing deep-tissue massages or relaxing pedicures, the experienced aestheticians rely on natural treatments to keep the entire body relaxed and feeling at peace.
The staffers at iNails Salon and Spa send bodies into states of relation with an array of nail, facial, and massage services. Experienced nail technicians pamper all 20 digits with 14 Botanical Escapes Herbal Spa treatments that blanket skin surfaces with a bouquet of natural ingredients. Guests submit finger or toe tips to soak in a bath bubbling with oils smelling of soothing cocoa or rejuvenating peppermint, preventing patrons from having to waste secret stashes of Junior Mints on DIY footbaths. SaniSmart spa jets bubble around ankles as techs pluck sanitized tools from a hospital-grade autoclave to scrub skin and prune everything in the vicinity of the nail. A choice of lacquer or nail-strengthening treatment caps each nail service. The salon also offers specialty manicures and pedicures aimed at relieving congestion, detoxifying, or rejuvenating clients, and tends to the body's other relaxation points with massages and facials that employ Dermalogica products.
It’s no coincidence that Devona Davis-Gordon, owner of Delaney’s Nail Loft, named most of her treatments after natural elements, such as helios, which means sun in Greek, or anthos, which means flower. The chic nail boutique is located right outside the Atlanta Botanical Garden, and the salon tends to use environmentally friendly products such as organic sugar scrubs and soothing bath salts. Both men and women can pop into the serene space for one of three indulgent manicure or pedicure treatments, and services for the ladies end with a colorful coat of China Glaze polish or two weeks’ worth of Gelish polish. Devona’s team also waxes away unwanted hair from the face and body and pumps up lashes with volume-boosting extensions.
Specializing in extreme looks and unique designs, the technicians at Nail Ink stylishly outfit nails with colorful lacquers, chip-free polish, and the latest nail enhancements. Technicians stock stations with products from brands such as OPI, Gelish, and Minx, and can enhance natural nails with full sets of acrylic, silk, and glass overlays. Simple polish changes allow hands to coordinate their colors with a favorite outfit or accessory, and trendy stiletto nails taper to an edgy point, making them particularly adept at scratching or serving hors d’oeuvres.
The deluxe manicure and pedicure at Nail Talk and Tan builds on basic grooming (cuticle and nail shaping, light massage, and a fresh coat of shiny polish), adding extra muscle manipulation, aromatic exfoliation, and sea-salt scrub to the mix. During the treatment, a skilled nail technician will help you slaughter stress by masterfully massaging your head, temples, neck, shoulders, legs, and feet. Sea-salt and sugar scrubs leave skin smooth and moisturized and set expired skin cells free to float around in the air. The pedicure includes a luxurious cooling mask with hot towels to soothe aches and pains.
