The techs behind New Beginnings Nail Salon draw on a collective 27 years experience as they primp acrylic and natural nails with tools cleansed by hospital-grade disinfectants. In addition to mani-pedis, they also offer paraffin treatments, sugar scrubs, and OPI Axxium no-chip polish for pistachio lovers. For brides-to-be and bachelorettes, they host parties with mani-pedis, champagne, and appetizers to prepare them for a fun night out or a walk down the aisle. Nail techs also pamper princesses during birthday parties that include nail designs and cake, with goodies bags for the guests to take home. In an effort to share their knowledge, New Beginnings Nail Salon offers an apprenticeship program that helps aspiring nail stylists earn their licenses through hands-on experience. They also joined the fight against cancer by holding a fundraising event featuring nail art and raffle tickets.
A master stylist and graduate of Paul Mitchell Salon School, Mogi Zagdsuren snips and pigments tresses while flanked on all sides by abstract paintings and statues available for purchase. Professional products such as Moroccanoil and Aquage combine to update 'dos with styling and straightening services, and CND nail polish keeps talons bewitching enough to attract glances and style-aware falcons to ungloved hands. While contemporary art pops from every corner, cubic, fire-engine red furnishings draw focus to the hair being straightened at each beauty station. Combined with the crimson-lined floor, this vibrant atmosphere has coaxed the Nashua Telegraph to profess, “Every element of the salon/gallery is tied together.”

Massage therapists turn to hot-stone and prenatal techniques to unwind bodies, ushering in relaxation with aromatherapy oils and the gentle wave of air-traffic-control wands. Nail technicians sit before leather pedicure thrones, where they decorate digits with Zoya polish or CND Shellac and soften the surrounding skin with hydrating moisture masks.
The stylists at Aleksandra’s Nail Salon beautify their clients with a lengthy list of spa services. Pedicures begin with foot exfoliation, nail shaping, and thorough buffing to remove imperfections acquired while skiing in sandals. Patrons bedeck their tarsals in either cucumber-melon or papaya-mango fragrances and choose to pamper paws with a soothing mask or a warm dip in paraffin. During spa treatments, clients settle into reclining massage chairs that float bodies on waves of relaxation instead of loud jetpacks. A coat of polish gilds toenails at the end of the session to send clients walking home with colorful and stress-free steps.
