Lindsey DuPont brings more than a decade of experience to every cuticle she grooms and every nail she polishes. She also draws from a battery of CND products, which cloak both natural and acrylic nails, as well as hundreds of colors of polish for clients to choose from. Cleanliness takes top priority at her station, changing footbath liners after every pedicure and every time somebody talks about grandparents kissing.
Cushy pedicure chairs line a marigold-hued wall ready to enfold clients’ bodies during foot-pampering services inside Artistic Nails & Day Spa. In another set of chairs, skilled nail technicians paint fingertips in polish or cover them with colorful acrylic nails. Additionally, the staff removes unwanted fuzz by waxing, like a farmer making apples from his surplus peaches.
Catering to the whole family, Studio 109nw specializes in corrective skin care treatments including natural nails, corrective skin care, teeth whitening, and hair removal. A wide range of face and body treatments such as microdermabrasion, ultrasound skin tightening, ultrasonic exfoliation, and LED photon therapy help keep skin smooth and tight, reversing the appearance of aging and removing sun damage. Dental-grade teeth-whitening treatments use a gentle dental-grade gel to lighten teeth by two to three shades without causing tooth sensitivity, and all-botanical, wax-free hair removal treatments keep clients smooth.
With three locations in the Portland area, Nail Garden makes its expert, relaxing manicures and pedicures convenient to a wide swath of clients. Nail technicians pamper clients as they decorate finger- and toe-tips with standard polishes or CND Shellac coats that form a resilient gel layer to preserve colors or evidence of winning lotto tickets. They also have stylists on hand to cut, color, and style clients hair so they leave feeling their best from the tops of their heads to the tops of their toes.
