Tuxedo shirts. Polka dots. Stripes. These aren't just patterns to be found on a clothing rack?they're also a sampling of the custom nail designs you can find at Sweet Life Nails and Spa. One look at the salon's Instagram and you'll get an idea of the staff's talents, which range from accenting sky-blue nails with puffy white clouds to painting an island sunset across a set of digits. The beauty specialists don't stop at nails, though. They also perform facials and waxing treatments, and can brighten smiles with teeth whitening.
Custom massages treat anything from chronic pain to anxiety and lack of flexibility. Therapists find success with Swedish and reflexology massage techniques and the use of bamboo canes and warmed stones. Facials and waxing services also abound at the studio.
Hair and nails have a lot in common––they're constantly growing, both look better with color, and they don't like horror movies. That's why A Wild Safari Hair & Nail Salon's stylists work alongside nail technicians to beautify both unruly split ends and overgrown cuticles. In addition to typical cuts and color treatments, hairdressers straighten hair using the Brazilian or Japanese method; nail artists can provide acrylic sets and reflexology pedicures.

Old-fashioned acrylic nails can sometimes be as much of a problem as they are a stylish statement. That's why the nail technicians at Something About Nails specialize in Nexgenails applications, a water-resistant artificial-nail system that has the appearance and physical qualities of natural talons. The odor-free treatments strengthen the nails, do no damage to the nail beds, and promote nail health with an infusion of calcium and vitamin E. This way, Something About Nails can provide visitors with a safe and healthy alternative to acrylic nails and fingertip chainmail. The duo also primps fingers and toes with a full menu of manicure and pedicure services, some of which include Shellac gel polish and soothing paraffin dips, as well as custom facial skincare.
Maintaining a commitment to cleanliness, the nail technicians at Nail-Know-How also train continuously in the latest techniques, including foot care for diabetic clients. Their efforts shine through during spa services for men and women in a cozy, relaxing, and clean environment. Nail technicians sculpt fingers and toenails during standard mani-pedis, as well as during more luxurious treatments, such as a peppermint pedicure infused with the same aromatic scents Santa Claus uses in his high-end line of colognes. While nails remain their specialty, the experts also wax off unwanted hair and perform lash- and brow-tinting services.
