Natural Nail Care Clinic’s owner, Julie Campbell, is dedicated to industry education so that she and her staff can serve their clients with the most up-to-date techniques. Each treatment begins as a technician evaluates your skin and nail condition. They then prescribe the proper service to counteract these conditions and pull the corresponding products from an arsenal that includes OPI, Essie, and Swiss-made Arbonne skincare serums. Some treatments—the coconut-lime-and-chocolate pedicure—come with complimentary cocktails to inspire a level of relaxation normally seen in roosters dining in vegan restaurants. The staff also performs facials, hair removal, and body scrubs.
Get Nailed at 3rd Ave's technicians see every nail as a canvas that can reveal something about its owner. A simple gloss buff, for example, shows an appreciation for both elegance and simplicity, or summery flower art can reflect a love for playing in the sunshine. Get Nailed's team members achieve these looks through attentive grooming and using products such as acrylics, UV-cured gel polishes, and shine-enhancing shellacs blended from melted mirrors. Beyond nails, they also tend to skin, offering services as diamond-file facials and waxing. Though they prefer appointments, technicians happily fit in walk-ins upon availability.
The staff at Luxe Nail Lounge expertly beautifies nails and rids clients of unwanted hair with professional waxing services. Specialty nail services, such as the De "Luxe" manicure, combine cuticle and nail shaping with a hand scrub, mask, and massage for handshakes so soft that no one will remember your name. Eco-Fin all-natural treatments—a blend of organic coconut and soy oils with shea butter and vitamin E—can be added to any pedicure as an alternative to paraffin. And in addition to standard nailcare and waxing, the nail lounge hosts mani-pedi parties for bridal showers, birthdays, or post-marathon celebrations or recoveries.

As for staff, Salon Zen Aveda stylists are all certified and trained in the latest cut and color techniques. Clients may also solicit the salon for waxing, lash extensions, or a specialty makeup applications for an event, a night on the town, or your professional miming gig.
Although master nail technician Sheila Greer of La Petite Nail Boutique adeptly performs relaxing mani-pedis, she doesn't limit her beautifying skills to fingers and toes. Clients can slide their hide under the bronzing micromists of spray tans or clear away unwanted hair with body waxing services. Tired fa?ades perk up with Sheila's facials and eyelash extensions grant lids thickness and length without having to train your eyelids to grow a moustache.

At the same time, however, they're making sure clients are comfortable and doted upon.
