The Aqua team hunger force starts by treating clients' digit-dialing digits to a peppermint-chocotini manicure ($15), wherein hands are soaked in a bath and then exfoliated with a chocolate-mint scrub before receiving a refreshing massage. After firmly securing your hands behind your back so that you're not tempted to eat your newly candified fingers, Aqua will treat your little piggies to a little wine with a Napa sparkling-lavender pedicure ($28), which soaks feet in a lavender effervescent fizz before treating them to a lavender aphrodisia salt-glow scrub. Toenails and cuticles will then be shaped and filed while a massage therapist trained in reflexology presses the healing heat of warm stones to your sneaker fillers and massages them with a soothing pressure.
The able aesthetic artists at Beautiology extend their expertise in a variety of cosmetic services, and create artistic nail designs. A mani-pedi kicks off with a warm footbath before a skilled staffer trims cuticles, sculpts nails, exfoliates heels, and treats lower limbs to a sugar scrub and foot-and-calf massage. Toes get the client's choice of traditional polish, french tips, or basic art, and a layer of long-lasting gel polish tops fingers, giving them a lustrous glimmer ideal for flagging down cabs at night. During a 30- to 40-minute full facial wax, beauticians strip mugs of unwanted fuzz, leaving skin as smooth as the floor of a zamboni parking garage.
Throughout the last decade, the trilingual beauty professionals at iNail Care & Spa have simultaneously broadened and honed their skills. In addition to manicuring nails the traditional way, technicians upgrade fingertips with gel polishes and intricate designs—they can paint nails with miniature Frankenstein faces on Halloween or decoupage fingertips with W-4 forms to celebrate tax season.
The spa’s aestheticians add expertise in skincare, whether that means softening signs of aging with facials or grooming brows with precision waxes. They also alleviate the physical signs of stress with leg massages, hot-stone treatments, and warm footbaths.
Nail technician Arianna Genini tops nails with artwork ranging from intricate patterns to strawberries and flowers. In addition to traditional acrylic nails, she can coat both real and faux nails with glitter so talons go on shimmering whether they're covered in polish or shamelessly nude. Arianna works inside Trésorle Salon and Spa alongside other hair, massage, and skincare specialists.
A palm tree beckons guests inside J Spa & Nails, where a talented team of stylists, massage therapists, and nail technicians await to beautify their guests. Miroslava specializes in nails, painting fingernails and toenails during luxurious pedicures and manicures.
At Allure Salon & Supply, Simone Ruiz and other nail techs and stylists take a bold approach to haircare and nailcare. Sarah Bristol revamps hairstyles and with custom cuts and edgy coloring using brand-name products from Enjoy, Kenra, and Alterna, which help keep tresses healthy and shiny. Simone's specialty, however, is creative nail art. She draws attention to talons with gel manicures in vibrant colors, then tops them with everything from polka dots to rhinestones. Acrylic nails, UV manicures, and soothing pedicures round out the salon's nail treatments.
