As a nail technician, Debbie of Finesse Nails takes pride and joy in her craft, painting nails to the specifications of each client. She can emblazon nails with rhinestone studs or spritz them with the same tattoo art inked by the first Barbary pirate manicurists. And for traditionalists, she swathes on the baby pinks and milky whites that make nails appear healthy and factory new.
Finesse Nails operates out of Salon Boutique, a collection of salons and spas that share hallways illuminated by dangling chandeliers. The space’s interior exudes a feeling of tranquility and tidiness that's otherwise seen only in architecture parks and fountains carved from soap.

Nail artist Nicole Shamon grooms and glamorizes nails with a focused menu of manicure and pedicure treatments. After she files, buffs, and softens extremities, Nicole can customize her classic treatments with unique nail art, callus-eliminating scrubs, and french tips, which keep toes looking beach-ready without doing 100 pencil-curls a day. For a longer-lasting finish, Shellac and Gelish lacquers fuse polish to nails with the help of powerful UV rays, fashioning up to two weeks of chip-free shine.
For more than two decades, Scratch Me Nailz owner and manicurist Michaelene has honed her keen eye for creating beautiful, expressive nail artwork. With sundry acrylic and gel polishes, she preps fingers and toes to make a good impression on dates or when strolling past TSA agents.
The team members at Halo Nail Salon and Spa specialize in the art of pampering. During their relaxing spa pedicures, a sextet of aromatherapy products causes stress and tension to float away through the ventilation system. Likewise with massages, which range from soothing Swedish strokes to trigger-point therapy—a technique designed to relieve pain and oust toxins. Facials leave pores dewy and rejuvenated, and waxing treatments banish unwanted body hair from legs, bikini lines, and brows.
