Just because a tan is fake doesn't mean it has to be unnatural. At Nana-Bella Nail and Beauty Lounge, technicians use an organic solution to bronze bodies. In addition to their traditional spray tan, they offer an express treatment?ideal for last-minute occasions as it dries in just one to three hours?and an Island tan that's designed to imbue a darker glow. Optional shimmer shots infuse the tanning solution with a sparkle that's more attractive than wearing a suit made from skinned disco balls. Aestheticians also accentuate skin with waxing services; the full-body selection includes legs, bikini, chest, and underarms.
At L&G Nails and Skincare, a staff of eminently experienced cosmetologists and estheticians beautify nails and skin with a wide range of spa services. Cosmetic artists prepare faces for special events with makeup treatments, and nail and skin specialists soothe and polish faces and hands with manicures, peels, and facials.
Illuminated scenes of paradise hang on the wall in NuZen Spa?s manicure station, inviting guests to daydream while technicians shape, buff, and paint their nails. Equally inviting are the pillows that accompany massage pedicure chairs for a deeply relaxing experience. In the spa?s private treatment rooms, Buddha statues atop wooden chests watch over guests as they recline during massages, facials, and body- and shadow-waxing services.

Oshi's Spa Zone is simultaneously calming and invigorating. The sleek wood floors and comfortable couches invite guests to unwind, and the fire engine red walls and the light pouring in from the two-story front window keeps guests awake. When guests finish basking in their surroundings, they can put themselves in the hands of one of the staff for a variety of services.
It may not always be easy to act like a lady, but Lady Like Spa at least allows one to look the part. Surrounded by white and bright-fuchsia walls dotted with sleek black salon chairs and black-framed mirrors, beauty professionals swipe away unwanted hair using traditional wax or ancient threading techniques that pull strands from the root. A collection of facials keep skin lustrous with mixtures of seaweed and green tea, and massage therapies remove tension via deep pressure, heated stones, or long, ranting letters to Emily Post spelled out in massage oil.
