At Sunlight Beauty, nails don’t have to scratch their way into the spotlight—they are the one and only focus for the team of nail technicians. That focus means they execute meticulous manicures and pedicures with gel, Shellac, and basic polishes and include additional treatments such as sugar scrubs to exfoliate and soften hands and feet. They also affix acrylic nails to digits and enhance individuality with custom nail art.
Nail Fantasy's salon technicians pamper their guests with a variety of manicures and pedicures. During a deluxe spa pedicure, for instance, marine salt scrubs and cooling masques work with cucumber heel-therapy lotion and hot towels to make feet feel better than the first time they put on bunny slippers. Shiatsu massage chairs and foot soaks also enhance the relaxing experience. Up top, nails get beautified with everything from gel polish to silk wraps, and nail polish designs and polish changes are also available. Along with nail care, Nail Fantasy also offers waxing and eyelash extensions.

Red hanging lights throw rounded shadows across Sweet D's hardwood floors and sunflower-yellow walls.

Waxing expert and aesthetician Cara Futch knows how to make waxing sessions more comfortable, and not simply by advising clients to skip caffeine and take some ibuprofen before coming in. As the hair-removal guru of The Lucky Waxing Company, she fully educates clients on the process and chats with them a bit to help set them at ease, stating, "I’m told I'm like therapy, only cheaper!" Add-ons to waxes can also help lighten the mood—dye, glitter, and small jewels can add a little dazzle to brazilian and bikini waxes, and ear-candling, while having nothing to do with hair removal, can suck out excess earwax and improve overall health. Futch is joined by a spray tanning specialist and a stylist/nail technician who both perform non-wax-related services.
