Masters of the nail universe, Couture Nail Boutique's techs use only brand-name products, such as Gelish, Cuccio, and CND. They apply the colorful polishes during standard or spa mani-pedis, which can include pampering treatments such as masks for feet and paraffin dips for hands. Just as talented at applying wax as they are at applying nail polish, the spa's techs also remove unwanted hair with a full menu of waxing services.
At Presidio Hair & Nails, seasoned manicurist Kim calls upon 18 years of nail-salon experience to buff and beautify clients’ appendage-enders. The skilled beautician dolls up digits by adhering a french acrylic nail to each fingernail, shielding scratchers in style mined from below the streets of Paris. Once nails begin to grow out, clients can schedule a follow-up fill appointment to extend the acrylic nails' lifespan. Alternatively, Kim can pamper both hands and feet with a mani-pedi that meticulously neatens, shapes, and polishes finger- and toenails.
There are many nail salons that a customer can visit. There are few salons, however, that visit customers. As Nails 2 GoGo’s name suggests, its fully trained, licensed, and insured technicians can perform pampering services on the road or at their new and larger Tucson shop. The team touches up hands and feet with luxurious manicure and pedicure treatments. Cuticle artisans render simple, understated treatments, such as simple polish and exfoliating scrubs, or applications of color and shiny Shellac coats, which are the kind of coats movie stars wear on the red carpet. Along with soothing hot-towel wraps and extensive six-week bridal manicures, technicians soothe muscles with detoxifying foot-reflexology treatments and regenerate skin with cleansing facials.
Now open Sundays, Nails 2 GoGo keeps everyone's nails looking sharp for all occasions, from daily wear to wedding day glam.

Great Waves has been servicing the nails of Tucson residents for the past 30 years. Designed for durability and street-wise shine, the non-chip shellac manicure treats all tips to a fortnight finish for the entirety of two well-kempt weeks. In a session, Great Waves' veteran nail technicians target rogue cuticles, reshape requisite regions, and leave a lush coat of one of many hybrid nail polishes from Creative Nail Design, a globally recognized product line. Ladies can choose the tone that speaks to them or, if preferred, opt for a colorful collaboration with Great Waves' creative and personable 'curists. No matter what tonal transformation takes place, refreshed guests can strut back to the outside world with nails resistant to chipping, peeling, and merman mind-control for up to 14 days. Appointments are required; call to schedule your visit.
