Angela's Nail & Spa's eponymous owner greets every salon guest with a smile, manning the finger-revamping fort as staff technicians transform nails into 10-piece hand and foot accessories. Both levels of mani-pedi include the application of a conditioning oil to reduce cuticle invasions while a shaping reworks nails into rounded arches, squared tips, or glowing orbs designed to foster heartfelt moments with estranged extraterrestrials.
Perfect 10 Services’ staff of beauty gurus pampers and prettifies male and female guests with nail, waxing, and makeup services. Trained technicians carefully eradicate facial fuzz and body bristles with waxing treatments, and permanent makeup applications fashion rosy cheeks without the pain of constant pinching or the discomfort of coating them in strawberry jam. Nail beds are nurtured during relaxing mani-pedis, which can be customized with paraffin-wax treatments, personalized nail art and airbrushing, and gel enhancements.
Dozens of nail-polish bottles line the shelves at Jin Town Nails, which offers clients more lacquer options than a chameleon's mood ring. Of course, those coats of polish come after extensive pampering. In addition to clipping, filing, and buffing nails, mani-pedis include hand and foot massages and skin-softening paraffin wax dips. After nails are dry, clients can indulge in facials or relax while a skin expert waxes away unwanted hair.
Angel Tips has clearly built a fan base since opening its first location in 1996—the business has expanded to more than 60 locations in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Perhaps it's because each licensed staff member formally trains at the Angel Tips training center in Stamford, Connecticut, ensuring that each location employs skilled nailcare and waxing technicians. Their services include pedicures infused with fresh lemon, manicures with hand and shoulder massages, and upgraded manicures with durable, chip-resistant gel polish. They also perform facials and body treatments, such as a signature body scrub, which begins with a sauna session, continues with a dip in a jacuzzi, and finishes with an essential-oil massage.
