Ava Cambric, a master pedicurist and natural nail manicurist, offers in-depth treatments at Nail Me Down Nailtique. From deluxe manicures to gel pedicures, she turns every treatment into an experience; foot soaks, heel scrubs, and paraffin hand masks augment nail trimming and cuticle care. Ava offers standard and gel polishes, as well as Lil Diva treatments for children and a mani-pedi menu exclusively for men.
Anchors, bunny rabbits, and snowflakes. Anything you can dream up, the nail technician at You Got Nailed can paint onto nails. After filing and buffing nails, her steady hands and creativity transform plain keratin sheets into pops of color that showcase your personality. And if a monochromatic hue is your desire, the technician covers nails with regular or a durable Shellac polish that protects against chips for up to two weeks. She can also easily hide overly bitten or otherwise unsightly fingernails with a full set of artificial nails or finger puppets.
Over the last 10 years, Skin Essentials Med Spa & Hair Salon owner Kelly Davis has prettified more than 2,000 faces with the SofTap permanent-makeup technique. She sidesteps the racket and pain of traditional tattoo-machine methods to gently apply the pigment with a hand tool, giving her absolute control to craft a subtle lip shape or a seductively arched brow. Guests can find similar attention to detail in the spa's repertoire of other beautifying services, from simple mani-pedis to advanced exfoliation peels that obscure signs of aging. Those looking to amp up their aesthetic moxie can enlist in a variety of services such as weight loss treatments, spray tanning, lash extensions, and Lipo Plex. Injections of Botox or Restylane keep skin surfaces as smooth as a pancake, and full-body scrubs and masks treat the whole physique to ensure that even your Achilles' heel embodies a beauty that belies its vulnerability.
The pedicure selection at TMM Signature Nails Spa reads more like a drink menu than a spa menu. The Chardonnay pedicure moisturizes feet with essential oils and a peppermint sea-salt foot soak, while the Lemon Drop pedicure warms skin with hot towels, warmed lotion, and a lemon mask. TMM's nail technicians also perform a variety of manicures—including gel and regular—and nail enhancements such as acrylics and pearl tips. Clients can complete their mini makeovers with body waxing, eyelash extensions, and inflatable muscle suits.
Helmed by a talented nail tech known as “Queen Minx,” Your Nail Palace and Spa ups the ante when it comes to manicures and pedicures. Soft jazz music and lavender oils create an immediate sense of tranquility within the salon, as talented nail artists guide tired feet into ion baths. With more than 20 years of experience, the spa’s chief technician specializes in just about every beautifying technique, including shellac and gel manicures, organic pedicures, and soothing body wraps. Beauty specialists also enhance features with eyebrow waxes and pump up lashes with synthetic extensions.
The master groomers at Nails by AkyJills polish talons to perfection with OPI products at highly sanitized stations and relieve stress or aches with targeted massage. Solo beauty seekers or pairs sipping beverages kick back in AkyJills' inviting salon as nail beautifiers primp upper and lower limbs with mini mani-pedis. Both services tend to extremities with a thorough nail shaping, cuticle trimming, and choice of polish color. Manicures in both options may be upgraded to a Bio Sculpture gel no-chip manicure for $20 per person. Aestheticians augment the treatment with a gentle massage that works an organic moisturizer, smoothing hydrator, and demo tapes from their cousins' bands into clients' hands. A choice of Swedish or deep-tissue massage eases the strain on muscles by using either gentle strokes or firm pressure to dissolve knots.
