When hands and feet are treated at Present Nail Spa, they aren?t just buffed and polished. They?re soaked in red wine or smothered in a watermelon, baobab, and banana mask as clients breathe in exotic or fruity scents. Of course staffers also shape and polish nails, but that's just the beginning. They also treat clients to pomegranate sea-salt scrubs to fight aging, milk and honey to soften and moisturize skin, and green- and white-tea masks to make a gingerbread man?s hands taste better. Other body parts grab the spotlight during the nail spa?s face- and body-waxing services and applications of eyelash extensions.
The staffers at Lotus Nails Spa take mani-pedis to the next level. Of course, they offer classic mani-pedis, but they get creative with variations including mango, chocolate, and tangerine versions. During 50-minute organic spa pedicures, for example, they lavish feet with essential oils and herbal extracts blended with Moroccan argan oil. And they can further up the pampering with nail designs, paraffin dips, and long-lasting gel polish, which remains chip-free for up to two weeks?the average time it takes to claw your way out of a jail cell. Beyond tending to nails, the staff also offers massages and waxing.
Nails, hair, skin, and tense muscles all receive their due care at Aislinn Spa, where visitors are greeted with the sounds of gentle music and an aura of well-lit cleanliness. Along with the basic trim, buff, and polish of a manicure or pedicure, the spa also offers more indulgent treatments that pamper the skin with everything from lemongrass to milk and honey. Stylists create flattering hairdos, massage therapists relieve tension with treatments for the hands, feet, or neck and shoulders, and skincare specialists remove hair using honey- and chocolate-based waxes. Pairing rejuvenation with relaxation, Aislinn Spa's aestheticians cover faces in soothing masks designed to leave the skin as radiant as a disco ball held up to the sun.
Residents of Falls Church don't have to travel far when they want a vacation from the everyday world.

The spa's signature services include everything from women's haircuts to heated foot massages, but it's impossible to overlook a menu of facials designed to cleanse, brighten, and tone skin.
