Isabella nails & day spa’s menu of nail services comes to sparkling life in a salon of plush pedicure chairs, footbaths, and lively greenery. Phalange pampering takes the form of classic spa manicures and pedicures with add-ons such as acrylic or gel polish to decorate hardworking nails and loyal tusks.

Pinky Nail & Spa's fleet of pedicure chairs and manicure stations keep clients comfortable while technicians file and buff nails before painting on regular or chip-resistant polish. The technicians can also join forces by tending to groups during birthday and bachelorette parties. Beyond mani-pedis, clients can relax as aestheticians wax away unwanted hair on legs or thread brows into perfect arches. The spa?s facials tackle dirt-clogged pore, while therapeutic massages unravel knotted muscles and tangled wings.
For the past 15 years, Samantha "Sami" Angelini has been manicuring nails, banishing fuzz with honey wax, and wielding makeup brushes. She's freelanced for MAC and Laura Mercier, filling her portfolio with images that typify her natural, yet evocative makeup style. Today, she enhances eyes, lips, and cheekbones with Motives Cosmetics mineral-based makeup. She demonstrates her techniques during one-on-one lessons, and preps brides for their nuptials. Sami's artist's eye also guides her hands as she shapes brows into flattering forms—one of her specialties—or tops finger and toenails in chip-resistant polishes or thimbles.
The team at Sonia Day Spa renders their many decadent anti-aging facials using oft-lauded Elemis products, a luxury British import incorporating high-quality natural active ingredients. Licensed therapists and certified aestheticians share a single driving purpose at the spa: help their clients achieve a relaxing nirvana where they feel beautiful both inside and out. To that end, they perform 10 different types of massage, each of which can be super-boosted with healing aromatherapy or by letting The Hulk do some of the kneading. For those in the grip of Hulk-sized amounts of stress, a longer stay at the spa may be in order. For that, the staff presents various half-day and full-day packages that combine skin-specific facials, mani-pedis, body scrubs, and massages.
