At Polished 2 Paint 2 Nails, nail artist Pleshette melts away stresses and strains from hard-laboring digits with soothing manicures and pedicures, made all the more indulgent with extras such as a gentle massage or exfoliating sugar scrub. Her skilled hands add coats of color, which can be made impenetrable by Gelish or Shellac polishes, which leave nails resistant to chips, fading, and late-night infomercial pitches. Pleshette is also joined by other nail techs and skin specialists. Together, they offer many other services, including facials, cosmetics, natural detox body wraps, all natural supplements, and firming creams.
Spa at Manhattan Studios' meticulous phalange technician, Bonnie Triplett, kicks off one-hour mani-pedi sessions by shaping claws and gently pushing back encroaching cuticles. She then massages organic salts and lotions into mitts and paws to exfoliate and soften skin before slicking colorful coats of traditional polish onto finger keratin. For those looking to get more mileage out of their manicure, Bonnie will use CND Shellac polish, which won’t chip, smudge, or flake for up to 14 days—the amount of time it takes to get a passport to Alaska.
The massage therapists at Extreme Relaxation knead potent doses of relaxation directly into sore extremities and shoulders with each massage. During the kneading, torsos, biceps, and Frankenstein neck bolts loosen beneath broad, gliding massage strokes. The lighter pressures of Swedish massage segue into deep-tissue techniques as dexterous hands manipulate connective tissues and lower-layer muscles.
Rickelle Watson Jenkins, owner of My Beautiful BROWZ Waxing Studio, peels away unwanted hair using a gentle zinc oxide–based wax that's great for first-timers and those with sensitive skin or breakouts. For trickier areas, such as the bikini line, Rickelle cracks open a can of titanium blue hard wax fresh from the La Brea Wax Pits. She recalls what first attracted her to the beauty industry—the art of makeup—while touching up lashes, lips, and everything in between, and uses Dermalogica products to cleanse and exfoliate during facials.

At MeTime Massage & Bodywork Essentials, the massage therapists do just as their name suggests—they help you take the time to take care of yourself. Here, owner and licensed massage therapist Michell Simmons—a member of the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals—draws on six years of experience as she soothes sinews with modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, and sports massage, all of which can be enhanced with aromatherapy. When the massage therapists aren't kneading knots and relieving tension, they swaddle clients in wraps made from ingredients such as sea salt, Baltic mud, rose mud, and ginger sugar—the same ingredients that go into mud pies at all the five-star restaurants. She also offers facials, body scrubs, and paraffin-wax treatments, which soften the hands and feet.
