From within Stone Hill Shopping Center, Great Nails technicians live up to the salon's name by expertly refreshing hands and feet with an array of nail services. With more than 140 years of combined experience, the nail artists at Great Nails are well-versed in decorating fingers and toes with chip-resistant shellac polish, natural-looking Solar Nails French tips, flexible-yet-durable gel nails, and acrylic tips. During pedicures, feet are pampered with an exfoliating sea-salt and moisturizing honey-shea butter lotion that’s more soothing than napping in George Clooney’s laundry hamper, and reflexology sessions focus on relieving pains across the body by applying pressure to specific points along the feet. When not focusing on bettering the nails of adults and kids, Great Nails employs a Zerona body-contouring laser treatment that aims to painlessly reduce fat.

The Lash Lounge's founder Anna Phillips—an advanced certified eyelash extension trainer—once traveled the nation, imparting the art of semipermanent eyelash application to scores of fellow lash artists. Now, at all of Lash Lounge's locations, Anna and her team work to ensure that every guest returns to their day-to-day activities batting fuller, darker lashes. They meticulously apply each synthetic strand to a natural lash with medical-grade glue, imbuing peepers with a customized, natural look that can last up to two months with proper care. Applying lashes of varying lengths, thicknesses, and degrees of curl, they have earned the praise of publications including Allure magazine and Women's Wear Daily.
The Lash Lounge also strives to eliminate lengthy daily makeup applications with permanent makeup services. After a complimentary consultation, Anna and her staff of licensed aestheticians and permanent-makeup artists precisely apply permanent eyeliner, lip color, or third eyebrows. For those who prefer makeup that washes off, she has concocted her own line of mineral cosmetics, brushes, and primers.
One morning as Ann Marie was curling her lashes before school, the phone rang. Instead of putting down her eyelash curler, she held it in place as she walked toward the phone, but then tripped over a book and pulled most of her lashes out. Shaken and stirred to action by the incident, she began researching remedies and discovered permanent eyelash extensions. The event inspired her to open Princess Lashes, a beauty boutique where Ann Marie not only augments clients’ lash lines but also certifies other aestheticians in the art of extensions, an art that can be applied during tax season and when trying to make one’s child eligible for the NBA.
