Wellness Connections’ resident nail artists fashion comely appendages with the stylish ministrations of mani-pedi treatments. Staff members prep finger canvases with a cuticle grooming and nail shaping, creating digit palettes that serve as elegant finger adornments or shimmering catfish-noodling lures. After appendages soak in a sea-salt exfoliation bath, hands and feet release their stress while enjoying relaxing kneads during a hand-and-foot massage. Pampering treatments end with the flawless strokes of a professional polish application, which preps nails for a stylish night out of ding-dong-ditching Buckingham Palace.

Hannah Gonzales's workspace—Salon De Capello—is almost as posh as the flattering 'dos she creates there. The waiting area’s leather chairs and bearskin rug create a homey feel, though the salon’s corrugated-metal accents add an industrial-chic twist. Hannah cuts, colors, and highlights manes at a minimalistic styling station with a full-length mirror that doubles as a portal to a world where most people are left-handed. Here she also arranges tresses into delicate updos for weddings and proms.
Magictan Studios draws on both traditional UV-tanning beds and the VersaSpa sunless-tanning system to convert fair-skinned physiques into beach-ready bods. A friendly, professional staff ensconces clients in their choice of Level 1, 2, or 3 beds, depending on their preference for a light toasting, medium bronzing, or phoenix-like rebirth. For the UV-shy, the VersaSpa sunless-tanning system not only bronzes skin, but hydrates and smoothes as well, resulting in a silky, polished tan in just a few minutes. A hydromassage bed keeps with Magictan Studios' emphasis on customization, relinquishing touchscreen control to clients as warm jets of water massage muscles before flowing back into the river of dreams.
