The open floor of Sweet Escape Nail Lounge has the social, lounge-like feel of a vibrant discotheque, with mismatched green, pink, and purple chairs strewn about the space. As clients repose in their seat of choice, technicians meticulously groom fingers and toes with Shellac and gel enhancements or smooth countenances with cleansing facial treatments. The staff performs body-waxing and massage treatments in a more secluded space, away from the main room's dramatic crystal chandeliers and sparkling beaded curtains that rain down from high, lofted ceilings. Exposed brick and curious ghosts are visible through carefully designed walls patches, lending the space a chic, industrial air.
The technicians at Envogue Spa & Salon accentuate epidermises with traditional salon and spa services as well as medical-grade skincare. They dote on prized locks with haircuts, styling, and highlights, and banish unwanted fuzz via threading and waxing services using natural azulene cream wax. Their facials heal and brighten complexions to better attract the attention of jumbotron operators. For more stubborn imperfections, clinical skin treatments promise a respite from warts and skin tags using radioactive therapy and cryotherapy.
La Royale's skilled aestheticians perform manicures and pedicures that refresh digits and keep nails well decorated. Fingers linger in a warm manicure bowl before technicians trim cuticles and shape and buff nails, leaving fingers stronger for firmer back scratching and more intimidating soda-can crushing. Lotion permeates the skin and muscles of the hand as an aesthetician's deft fingers lightly massage it in, and a warm hand towel helps the applied serum sink into the palm. Toenails get the same shaping treatment, and a pumice bar works calluses before lotion gets massaged in. Nail technicians brush toe and finger canvasses with skill, turning blank slates into vibrant solid colors or baroque masterworks that conceal insulting messages about Louis XIV. La Royale's luxurious pedicure chairs seat patrons under a chandelier, ornately framed mirrors, and cream-colored walls.
They may not paint on canvas, but the brush-wielders at Elegant Nails still create works of art. Instead of hanging their work on walls, their tiny masterpieces grace finger- and- toe-tips, brought to life with the bright hues of polish and acrylics. When tending to toenails, technicians take care not to forget the appendages they’re attached to, pampering legs and feet with relaxing massages and soothing sea-salt hot-towel treatments, and complimenting them on their taste in shoes.
