Nails By Moonlight is an independently owned nail salon tucked within the consignment store Ladies First Resale Boutique. The technicians specialize in services using Shellac and OPI gel polishes, which keep manicures and pedicures looking fresh for longer than traditional hues. The chip-resistant polishes also require minimal drying time, as they cure under a special light rather than in front of a window air conditioner. Before techs apply any color, nail art, or artificial nails, they buff and file nails to ideal lengths and push back cuticles to ensure clean surfaces.
Located within Arizona Spa, Cadillac Nails by Mary is a place where clients can relax while their hard-working hands and feet undergo serious grooming. Mary is an experienced nail technician, versed in procedures ranging from dipping fingers into softening paraffin wax to applying fiberglass faux nails to villains’ eyelids as they sleep.
During her popular 30-minute shellac manicures, she first shapes nails and corrals cuticles with a series of precision snips. Next, she applies a durable, glossy shellac coating, which wears like a polish but strengthens nails and remains chip free for up to two weeks. Basic pedicures generally take 45 minutes and groom lower digits with OPI polish and botanically based products.

Legacy Salon and Day Spa's facial services smooth over epidermal erosion and melt away the weathered granite of gargoyle mugs to reveal the cherubic visages underneath. Yank out the roots of blackhead radishes with an acne-clearing facial ($80), or go from Two-Face to Catwoman with a pigment balancing facial ($75). A practiced technician stands at the ready to arm male and female kissers with anti-aging ameliorants or vitamin-infused serums, and any facial can be upgraded to a skin-buffing microdermabrasion treatment (a $125 value) for an additional $25.
