Lisa has spent 15 years tending to the fingernails and toenails of both men and women. Services start as clients sit back comfortably. While they relax, Lisa treats tired feet and hands to a pomegranate soak (for women) or an Epsom salt bath (for men), then further softens rough, dry skin with an exfoliating scrub made of brown sugar. Foot and calf massages follow before nails are trimmed and buffed. For the finishing touch, Lisa offers a rainbow of China Glaze and OPI polishes, and she is more than happy to use multiple colors to create stripes and abstract designs. And, for nails that need an even bigger boost, Lisa can also apply 3D faux crystals or tiny, nail-sized tiaras for a bit of bling.
Designs in Motion's clients relax while owner and technician Marci massages their hands and feet and neatens their nails during pampering mani-pedis. But what makes these nail services particularly indulgent is that they can be performed within the comfort of the client's home or office, meaning Marci doesn't have to work extra hard to relieve the stress resulting from driving on top of cars parked on the side of the road to avoid traffic and make the appointment on time.
Beyond manicures and pedicures, Designs in Motion offers eyebrow-sculpting services, as well as body-waxing treatments and lash-extension applications.
The technician at AlphaMale Nail Care Services for Men wants men to stop thinking of nailcare as a pampering service solely for women. That’s why instead of topping digits off with pretty polish or Lisa Frank stickers, each manicure and pedicure finishes with a matte nail protector.
During the treatments, the technician preps hands and feet in milk or Epsom salt soaks, shapes and trims nails, massages feet and calves, and exfoliates with a sugar scrub. A hydrating mask with hot towels or a thermal neck wrap further relaxes with the healing power of heat extracted from a dragon’s lungs.
Nail Bar Spa primps and pampers clients with a range of nail-care services alongside complimentary drinks. While visitors relax in cushy pedicure chairs or rest hands on granite tabletops, nail techs perform treatments that range from tropical enzyme-induced exfoliation to skin-rejuvenating clay masks. Then, even coats of OPI or Essie polish get nails looking thumb-war ready. For a more extensive revamp, purifying facials and smoothing waxing services are also available.
For more than 20 years, nail specialist Lisa Danielle has decorated thousands of nails. In one-on-one sessions, she shows each nail the attention normally reserved for needlepoint or an overachieving youngest child. OPI and China Glaze polishes work to brighten fingernails.
At No1 Nails Spa, cleanliness and indulgence go hand in hand. While nail technicians pamper clients with calming masks, lotion massages, and OPI polishes, a second prep team keeps busy behind the scenes, changing out pedicure tubs, sterilizing and swapping equipment, and bringing new tools as needed. These staffers help ensure that the spa stays sparkling and well above state standards, but more importantly, they allow their coworkers to focus all of their attention on one task: beautifying every single digit on every hand and foot that walks through the door.
The path to polished nails passes through deluxe treatments such as the hot-stone spa pedicure, which soothes with an exfoliating sea-salt scrub and hot-stone massage. Fingers enjoy services including the royal galvanic deluxe manicure, an anti-aging procedure that combines special gel and Nu Skin galvanic spa instruments to soften skin and reduce the idle doodles of time. No1 Nails Spa carries acrylic, UV gel, and pink-and-white nails, and rounds out its extensive menu with microdermabrasions, facials, and children’s mani-pedis.
