Katie has tended fingers and toes for 12 years. In that time, she has mastered the art of grooming cuticles, moisturizing hands and feet in paraffin wax, and lifting away dead skin cells with scrubs or tiny cranes. At her eponymous studio, she continues to accentuate nails with OPI polish and hand-painted designs. During treatments, Katie strives to make clients feel comfortable and happy. "Each room is unique," says Katie, noting that each private treatment area is painted in a different calming hue. Upon request, she enhances the experience with a beverage and soft music.
Ehmi Nail, Salon & Spa's talented technicians tend to clients in a space marked by stone tile, textured walls, and cozy leather seating. After brainstorming with clients during complimentary consultations, they give heads more breathable cuts or change identities with coloring, highlights, and straightening treatments. Files bring order to unruly nails during mani-pedis before techs lay down coats of color from OPI, Essie, and Chanel. Private rooms allow visitors to luxuriate peacefully during different massage modalities, which incorporate music, hot stones, and flickering candles to coax stress out of aching muscles. Technicians also decorate faces with professional makeup applications and facials. Ehmi Nail, Salon & Spa happily opens its doors to private parties, welcoming groups celebrating events ranging from a girls’ night out to the world’s prettiest fantasy-baseball draft.
Beneath the manicure area's cherry blossom mural, or nestled in light blue pedicure chairs, visitors to Timeless Nail Spa find themselves immersed in an airy, bright atmosphere. While they relax, nail artists focus on dazzling designs. Of course, some opt for a simple wash of color—available in classic, acrylic, or gel varieties—but others commission detailed patterns and pictures. From leopard print to ghoulish Halloween characters, digits parading out of Timeless Nail Spa showcase art as wild as the imaginations behind it.
Nails and faces reign at Nail and Face Space Salon. All of the salon's customized facial treatments include a warm neck wrap and an eye pillow as the aestheticians treat faces to a deep-pore cleansing with a European facial, or a dose of anti-aging antioxidants with Vitamin C facials. Nails, meanwhile, get star treatment with long-lasting Shellac polish or spa manicures and pedicures. A foot renewal treatment with a warm foot soak, massage, and exfoliation ensures that feet will feel as great as nails look. The salon also offers waxing services to get rid of pesky unwanted hairs on the face and body.
