Jackie couldn't count the number of years she's been a nail technician on two hands?she'd need to include her toes to cover her two decades of experience. Over that time, Jackie has mastered the dexterous art of painting fingers and toes with polish and shellac, the latter of which lasts longer and resists chipping. She carries resilient brands including CND shellac gel, Essie LED gel, and China Glaze gelaz'e LED polishes. Guests will also find her applying acrylics and gels to nails in both vibrant and natural-looking designs. Clients might leave her station with the white tips indicative of a French manicure, or with tiny flowers on their nails that lure hummingbirds to perch on outstretched pinkies. Jackie also performs foot soaks that release toxins through the feet's approximately 500 thousand sweat glands.
When Angel Tips opened the doors to its single Long Island store in 1996, it had a simple premise: to offer professional nail, waxing, and beauty services at an affordable price. Although the company has expanded to more than 60 locations across New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut since then, their focus on professionalism remains the same. They even require all of their licensed professionals to hone their skills at a specialized training center in Connecticut.
Though Angel Tips expertly performs waxing services and installs eyelash extensions, their specialty lies in nail care. Their technicians perform traditional, gel, and acrylic manicures, as well as specialty pedicures with paraffin and hot stone massages. Cleanliness, like professionalism and affordability, is a top priority; all locations use sanitized tools, disposable files and buffer pads, and pedicure chairs that have fully outgrown their teenage grunge phases.
New Star Pink Nail’s soft-pink walls, flowing curtains, and lighted branches conjure an almost whimsical atmosphere, welcoming clients to escape the stresses of the outside world. Within the full-service nail salon, patrons dreamily sink into leather pedicure thrones or manicure chairs as nail technicians dote on their hands and feet. The staff further pampers guests with european facials, waxing services, and massage. An application of permanent makeup enhances eyes or lips, and remains runway ready whether you take a dip, endure inclement weather, or watch a marathon of Lassie.
A teardrop chandelier and Klimt-esque mural pop against Choco Nail Spa?s earth-hued walls. The spa?s dedicated mani-pedi stations are outfitted with cozy chairs that invite relaxation while nails are shaped, buffed, and painted.

Salon Von De Beauty Bar's board-certified lash artists and aestheticians beautify clients with head-to-toe nail and spa treatments. Semipermanent eyelash extensions thicken fringe without the mess of applying false lashes each day. Extra inches fade from waistlines in the face of Cavi-Lipo ultrasound treatments. Each of the spa?s body treatments are noninvasive and free of needles, scalpels, and miniaturized robots that blast fat from inside. Salon Von De Beauty Bar is a bar-themed, OSHA-certified salon and aims to provide a comfortable environment for all clients, including using a special ventilation system with their keratin treatments.
An ornate chandelier with dangling glass teardrops, an orchid plant with soft white petals, and a wall of tufted gold fabric greet guests as they step into Mist Nail Boutique and Day Spa. Patrons relax in modern, oversize square pedicure chairs with bolsters, pillows, and a teddy bear to cuddle. The sophistication continues in private rooms that host massages, facials, and azulene-waxing services, which work to minimize redness and irritation on sensitive skin.
