Bella Nails and More's pedicures are more than a polish and a file. During ultimate pedicure experiences, technicians carefully shape cuticles, remove calluses, and up the relaxation ante with everything from aromatherapy salt scrub to a balancing clay mask, hot-towel wrap, and a dip in softening parrafin wax.
Fingers, toes, and faces get a total makeover at Rio Nails & Spa, thanks to a staff of skilled technicians and a treatment menu that includes everything from mani-pedis to hot-stone massages. Though the spa offers a wide range of relaxing services, most have at least one thing in common: they are more than meets the eye. It's not rare for a massage to include hot towels, for example, or for a facial to include a massage with oil and hot stones. As the spa's name implies, nail treatments are a major focal point. Aside from regular polish, technicians paint nails with a chip-resistant Shellac formula or apply solar nails that naturally recharge your brain when exposed to sunlight.
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.
