At Studio 21 Salon and Spa, talon-trimming artisan Donna Ray brings out the best in fingers and toes with a pampering and beautifying 60-minute spa mani-pedi. Donna begins by soaking digits in a relaxing bath, after which she shapes nails and carefully curates cuticles. Next, she soothes away the stress of daily work schedules and nightly bongo competitions with a massage of the hands, forearms, feet, and legs. Then, a warm-towel wrap rejuvenates hooves and melts away any lingering tension. Donna finishes finger and toe canvases with a lustrous lacquer in a choice of colorful hue, determined by a favorite outfit, lipstick, or magic 8 ball answer.
Passion Nails by Terra's treatments coddle nails into more beautified forms while visitors enjoy luxurious complimentary snacks and libations. During the classic mani-pedi, hands and feet soak in separate baths before nails are reformed into a shape more appropriate for menacingly tearing apart string cheese. A quick trim keeps cuticles at bay, and a hot-towel wrap and delicate massage relieve appendages' stress. The classic treatment concludes with a glazing of fresh paint across all twenty digits.
Located in Murfreesboro, Brand New Image Salon is a full-service salon and spa that believes a little bit of pampering can make all the difference. Specializing in natural hair services, such as sew-in weaves and kinky twists, the licensed staff here also offers indulgent spa mani-pedis and body waxing. Come in to have makeup professionally applied, or get an upper lip wax before having nails buffed and polished to perfection.
A few wisps of smoke from an extinguished candle hang in the air, along with the lingering fragrance of aromatic oils and the soft strains of jazz or nature sounds. One of the licensed massage therapists at Mona Lisa's Massage & Wellness has completed another relaxing session, easing muscle tension and stress with modalities such as hot-stone therapy, pregnancy or sports massage, or reflexology. The center's practitioners operate in an intimate and tranquil four-room suite complete with a mani-pedi station. In the couples room, pairs enjoying a Yin + Yang massage nosh on chocolate-covered strawberries and discuss how to install electric handlebar warmers on a tandem bike.
The crew exfoliates skin with coconut-lime-scented scrubs and detoxifies bodies with wraps that include a session in the steam sauna. They also aim to clear complexions with 10 different anti-aging facial treatments and peels.
Bloomingnails Hair and Nail Salon's nail technicians transform hands and feet into immaculate canvases of art with polishes from OPI and CND. The up-to-90-minute mani-pedi begins with the digit doyen massaging the hands and trimming the cuticles before buffing and filing finger armor to a gumball-esque sheen and blanketing it in a splash of color. The phalange pro then descends floorward, trimming and buffing toe talons into topiary art before exfoliating the hind paws with a foot scrub or mask. Legs are ensconced in a heated towel for an embrace that's warmer than a bear hug from Grandma, and a brush of color tops the tootsie surface for an eye-popping finish.
