Lisa knows that natural-looking nails are often the most elegant. She creates this subtle aesthetic by applying sets of thin nails, whose pink and white hues mimic nails that have never been painted or used to pry open a bank safe. Lisa also wields CND shellac to brush on chip-resistant coats of color, and brightens nails with OPI gel and polish. She enhances her pedicures with exfoliation and massages.
Margarita Pinkhasova—a.k.a., Rita of Rita's Nail—pretties up fingers and toes from the comforts of Arbach's Goodhair Salon. With long-lasting beauty in mind, Rita artfully applies traditional and shellac polish that can remain chip-free for up to two weeks. She also tames unruly brows and smoothens out other facial areas with swift yet gentle waxing sessions.
The technicians at Hera Nail Spa draw upon 10 years of experience as they care for natural and artificial nails in an elegantly remodeled setting. Staffers coat fingertips in traditional polish or apply durable Gelish or CND Shellac polish that can last without chipping for up to two weeks. For pedicures, patrons climb aboard the La Fleur II chair, whose massaging action mimics human fingers by playing rock-scissors-paper beneath the upholstery. The remodeled space boasts chandelier-like glass lighting, a trickling fountain, and stately arches and columns.
