While reverence for medicine may seem unusual for a nail spa, Elizabeth Ashton doesn?t think so, for as she explains, it?s ?more than pedicures and manicures, [it] is about the beauty, wellness, and pleasure.? From the moment clients enter her bright and airy space, Elizabeth facilitates relaxation with indulgent manicure and pedicure services. She quickly cleans, shapes, and polishes nails during an ?on the go? treatment, and alternately, she takes nearly two hours when administering the Indian-therapy mani-pedi, complete with lime, ginger, and coconut-milk blends and finished with a Dead Sea mask. Services are topped off with a rainbow of OPI polishes, pink and white fills, a layer of chocolate fondant, or gel overlays.
