After a decade-long stint in law enforcement, Anne E. Currie returned to the profession she is most passionate about: nailcare. Anne came full circle in 2011, when she opened Nailtoepia after having started her career as a nail technician in 1991. A creative soul, Anne specializes in colored acrylics, custom nail art, and glitter nails that double as disco balls for hamster nightclubs. Along with nail enhancements, she offers a full menu of nailcare services that range from Shellac mani-pedis to men's nailcare at her two locations in Greenfield and Morristown.
A licensed aesthetician and massage therapist, Michelle Duncan lends her name and her spa skills to Michelle Duncan Skin Care & Massage. There, she offers a wide range of services and specializes in nonsurgical face-lifts, LED therapy, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, electroporation, and deep-tissue massage.
At Blue Seas Hair and Nail Salon, a savvy nail specialist beautifies finger shingles and toe shells with indulgent nail services. A 45-minute manicure softens cuticles before the digit artist files down rough edges and adorns nails with a polish of the patron's choosing. During the spa pedicure, the appendage coddler pampers feet for one solid hour, clipping each nail to perfection and removing all the brown M&Ms from the snack tray in their sneaker's dressing room. Toes go on their merry way with a fresh coat of polish and an astronaut-like bounce in their step.
A family-owned company, Family Tans, Inc. helps bronze bodies inside its spacious facility with custom spray tans and high-end tanning booths, and further primps exteriors with body wraps, hair treatments, and nail services. Private rooms host a range of different beds and amenities, from the SunDash Gold Series equipment to powerful Avantgarde 600 booths—which feature facial tanners, cool air, and a built in radio for listening to music. Premium UVA bulbs grace the upright and upgraded beds, delivering rays that penetrate deeper into the skin. Hides can also gain some color with custom airbrush spray tans, which are applied by hand to deliver an even, UV-free sheen. The staff also provides teeth whitening, massage treatments, and body wraps. For an additional fee, parents can leave their clan at the onsite childcare while they partake in spa and salon services.
