From basic mani-pedis to acrylic and fiberglass fills, the techs at Creative Nails do it all. Soak-off gel polishes are also within their repertoire––once each talon bears a glossy coating, a UV light cures the polish within a few minutes. This hardened lacquer resists dents, chips, and infomercial sales pitches for up to three weeks. In addition to painting solid hues, techs can also create French tips or paint intricate nail designs on top of natural or artificial nails.
Oasis Nails owner Hannah Vo first found her passion for taking care of others while working as a nurse in Vietnam. Today she channels that nurturing nature into services designed to help customers look and feel their best. Beyond the studio’s signature manicures and pedicures, Vo and her staff specialize in waxing, tinting, and eyelash extensions, and can refresh weary countenances with exfoliating facials or moisturizing pie fights upon request.
Exactly 21 things matter to the technicians at Royal Nails Carmichael: 10 toes, 10 fingers, and the client they belong to. The salon's service menu focuses on skin and nails, with treatments that include hot-oil manicures and deluxe pedicures. To thank your nails for helping out with that scratch-off lotto ticket or territorial bear, opt for a specialty application of gel polish, acrylics, or white tips.
At Bellara Salon & Spa, stylists and aestheticians demonstrate their passion for helping their clients feel younger, fresher, and healthier. Facials and medical-grade microdermabrasion treatments lift away layers of dead skin cells, and deep-tissue massages melt away the demands of work, the stresses of family life, and the muscle soreness from uphill-both-ways school commutes.
Color and corrective hair treatments transform locks with infusions of silky keratin or striking highlights. Facial and body waxing services quickly remove unwanted hair for weeks.
The seasoned waxing techs at Chez Nazee deftly evict unwelcome body hair. A 20- to 30-minute Brazilian wax fully eradicates strands that sprout or migrate to the nether region. An eyebrow wax tidies asymmetrical brow lines, and a lip wax removes undesired fuzz and computer-pie crumbs from the lip area. With waxing, you avoid razor burn and painful cuts. Plus, hairs don’t grow back for two to six weeks, making it more effective than fire or wishing.
After a day spent walking around Westfield Galleria, Galleria Nails can look particularly enticing. Inside, owner Tiffany Tran and her team of licensed nail technicians pamper with massages, paraffin wax wraps, sugar scrubs, and mani-pedis. But they can do more than just groom hands and feet, they can transform them with coats of Shellac polish, 3D nail art, or hand-painted flowers that double as camouflage provided you're holding a bouquet.
