Skilled technician Jessica Alborn ensures nail beauty with deft shaping, vibrant polishes, and myriad varieties of acrylics. Not restricting her talents to talons, clients may also solicit Alborn for a swift wax or a flattering haircut and color treatment.

Telia Anderson, owner of Pink Door Nail & Facial Spa, has been beautifying clients for more than 12 years, though she only opened her own studio a couple of years ago. "I've been doing nails since I was 14," she says. "My hobby turned into my career." She still loves to give a straighforward manicure, citing the service as her favorite part about her job. In addition to shaping and buffing nails, she finishes off her services with a variety of polishes, from durable gels to artificial acrylic sets that add length, colors, and patterns to fingers.
The aromas of fresh-baked blueberry muffins and hot apple cobbler fill the air inside of VIP Nail Bar, but it's not because there?s an oven in back. The studio?s dessert pedicures are to thank, calming minds with comforting scents while softening cuticles and skin.?More tropical concoctions?such as citrus sangria and raspberry lemonade?anchor each martini manicure, which softens cuticles, moisturizes skin, and promotes nail health. In addition to culinary-influenced treatments, the salon offers basic nail services and makes house calls for special occasions, such as bachelorette and birthday parties.
Helmed by Kitty Caughey, a manicurist with more than 13 years of experience in her hand-pampering wake, Nail Therapy Spa revamps digits with an array of strengthening and beautifying services.
