At E-Clips Salon & Boutique, each stylist's workstation is packed with an array of styling tools and professional products for an extensive repertoire of aesthetic services. Bottles of Paul Mitchell and Redken coloring products sit alongside assorted scissors and hair clippers, and drawers abound with feather extensions, waxing products, and colorful nail polishes. Committed to beautifying customers in their entirety, the team of stylists also oversees an onsite boutique, where racks of chic blouses, flowery dresses, and designer jeans make it an ideal venue for fashion hunting or games of pin the tail on the mannequin.
The aestheticians at Nails 4 U treat nails as tiny canvases awaiting a dash of color and self-expression. Besides lacquering digits in a kaleidoscope of hues with gel polishes during spa mani-pedis, they execute skin-smoothing waxing services.

All of the students at Color My Nails School of Nail Technology have the same concentration. That's because the school is "nails only"—every teacher is a practicing nail tech, and the 300-hour course is designed to set graduates apart in the mani-pedi industry. To that end, it includes lessons on treatments that other schools might not delve into, such as how to use nail drills, perform white-tip fills, and forge a stunningly accurate van Gogh piece onto someone's thumb. Students practice on both mannequins and live clients, administering affordable manicures, pedicures, fills, and gel-polish applications. They also host children's parties that leave guests giggling at their newly glittery toes.

Now home to 23 expert technicians, the self-proclaimed "largest nails-only salon in Utah" continues Monica's legacy of spreading the dazzling beauty of nail art to the Midvale area. Whether they're welcoming fresh coats of Shellac polish, donning a new set of artificial nails, or relaxing with a soothing full mani-pedi, clients are greeted by sparkling smiles that match the twinkling reflections of the salon's newly installed glitter walls. Color My Nails Salon's retail section helps clients maintain their new looks at home with nail products, or match polish with fresh accessories such as purses, jewelry, and scarves.
