Licensed nail technicians at Royal Nails & Spa beautify fingertips and toes with skilled shaping and painting. Clients can sashay past the aquarium filled with luminous orange fish and sit in a cushy leather pedicure chair while nail technicians trim cuticles, file nails, and calibrate elevator shoes. Flat-screen TVs entertain clients as technicians slick designer polish onto toenails. Across the amber-hued spa flanked by gilt Corinthian columns, clients offer their hands to be beautified into shapely ovals and buffed to shimmering smoothness. Technicians ornament fingernails with seasonal shades evoking autumnal harvests, wintery frosts, or springtime cap-and-gown receipts.
Billowing drapes, exposed brick walls, and playful zebra-print furniture fill Swan Skin and Nail Spa, where owner Swangela Barlow brings her clientele up to speed on the latest developments in mani-pedis, facials, eyelashes, and waxing services. Barlow's diverse nail services?a specialty?include children's manicures, long-lasting shellac-gel treatments, and Minx manicures, a wholly customizable favorite of Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
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.
When talking about Upscale Nail Bar, owner Alica Best fondly refers to her salon as "tesoro in città"—an Italian phrase that translates to "treasure in the city." Amid soft lighting and cushy spa chairs, Alicia takes hours at a time to pamper feet and hands through luxurious mani-pedis and massages. Committed to maintaining an atmosphere of uninterrupted tranquility at her salon, she doles out her services by appointment only and requests that cell phones or particularly shrill kazoos not be used during sessions.
