Chenell’s Natural Nails invites the fingers and toes of both men and women to sit in the lap of luxury during manicure and pedicure treatments that each come in four different styles. During the signature manicure, mitts soak in a warm water potion infused with essential oils before enjoying a massage with body butter. Exfoliation is the emphasis of the Sugarmama-Cure pedicure, which ousts dead skin cells with sugar crystals and a disposable pumice stone. Nail technicians finish treatments with a polish or buff as shiny as an engagement ring presented on a chicken drumstick. Clients can also add à la carte upgrades to their manicures and pedicures, choosing UV-cured Shellac polish to extend their nail color's lifespan or enlisting a callus treatment to rid themselves of the rough skin that results from jigging barefoot through a diamond mine.

The nail technicians at Tips & Toes refine extremity ends with organic skin serums and polish by OPI, Essie, and China Glaze in more than 900 colorful hues. During the gel manicure, clients laze in black leather seating as fingers receive a thorough buff, trim, and a vibrant coat of gel polish. Like a UFO painting crew, nail experts bathe the newly applied lacquer in a powerful light, drying the color almost instantly to leave it free from chips and smudges for up to three weeks. During organic mani-pedis, staffers swathe digits in organic sugar scrubs and lotions suffused with mineral extracts to leave skin smooth and hydrated. Next, steamy towels team up with a soothing massage to banish tension before nails don a colorful layer of polish. Beneath stark black ceilings, awaiting clients sip on complimentary beverages amid the glow of hanging lamps and flickering candles. Cream-colored curtains separate manicure and pedicure areas to keep opposite extremities from arguing over botched hokey-pokey routines
Amy started doing nails at a relative's salon, and it wasn't long before she realized this was her passion. There are two reasons for this. First, Amy is an artist who draws energy from the challenge of adorning her clients' keratin canvases. Second, she loves helping people feel good about themselves. To truly immerse guests in luxury, Amy whips up milk baths, scrubs feet with sugar, applies hot stones, and treats noses to energizing citrus scents. After trimming, massaging, and soaking, she creates patterned and solid nail art alike with polishes by CND, OPI, and Essie. She also applies acrylics with materials that are free of nail bed-damaging MMA.
