At The V Spot Nail Spa, clients can sink into massive white armchairs as their feet soak in gleaming silver basins as the soothing scents of the lavender scrub and shea butter waft through the air. While they relax in armchairs or perch themselves at manicure stations, their toe- and fingertips are painted with OPI and CND Shellac polish, which make appendages easy to spot when their owners are rotating atop a baggage-claim conveyor belt. Olive lotion, lavender scrubs, and aloe augment manicures, softening hands as guests look up at the salon?s crystal chandeliers, ornate mirrors, and exposed-brick walls.
Both ends of the beauty spectrum merge inside Casa De Odessa Salon & Boutique, where salon treatments and women's fashions join forces to foster new looks. Stylists and technicians team up to trim and sculpt trendy hairdos, groom and polish finger- and toenails, and wax away body hair before it can petition for status as a wildlife refuge. Once clients have retooled their images, they can plop down and treat their muscles and spirits to a soothing massage, emerging with looser limbs and ready to be re-anchored by a shoppable selection of apparel and accessories.
Having celebrated its opening in January 2012, Four Seasons Nail Salon staffs an abundance of sleek manicure stations and rows of pedicure thrones with professional nail technicians. A large crystal chandelier illuminates the front desk in the contemporary space, and textured stone walls surround the pedicure area. Along a wall of windows, guests rest hands below quick-dry machines as they gaze out onto the street to watch unmanicured passersby hide misshapen nails with newspapers and attempt to hail taxis with their hands in their pockets.
Fancie Nail & Beauty Spa's team buffs fingers and toes with an arsenal of nail services. During a 45–60 minute mani-pedi, appendage attendants recalculate digits by subtracting excess cuticleage and talon overgrowth before adding deposits of color. Beauty seekers can also opt for the paraffin manicure and pedicure, where silky paraffin wax drowns dry skin in a protective coating. The paraffin helps lotions penetrate deep into calluses and dry spots, restoring skin to a softness that rivals down comforters or a sweet tooth’s anticupcake resolve.
The aestheticians at the newly opened spa bring more than 10 years of experience to their services, which include waxing and nailcare. They use sterilized instruments that meet high sanitation standards to not only beautify clients, but also keep them safe.
