With its pristine white walls, drapes, and treatment stations, the studio's ambiance evokes the cool serenity of an art gallery or especially quiet refrigerator.

Even the nail technicians go above and beyond simply filing and polishing nails?the addition of exfoliating scrubs and massages with organic lotions help turn basic manicures and pedicures into pampering escapes.
