Nails by Farrah's digit stylists pamper hands and feet with polymer nail enhancements and indulgent manicures and pedicures. Treat tired tootsies to a soothing spa pedicure (a $50 value), which incorporates a warm aromatherapy soak to exfoliate heels, legs, feet, and ingrown stilts, while one of Nails by Farrah's nimble-fingered nail designers gently kneads out muscle knots. Each digit basks in a personal spruce session as the technician clips cuticles, trims talons, and bathes gams in a hydrating mask before topping toenails in the color of your choice.
Charlotte Pugh, a licensed nail technician who works within the Hair Visalia salon, specializes in painting detailed images onto tiny finger and toe canvases, whether made of natural keratin or acrylic. Dazzling snowflakes, ghoulish monsters, and striking depictions of the Santa Maria adorn fingertips during holidays, and glitter, feathers, and shiny solid hues decorate digits year-round. Charlotte can apply chip-resistant layers of Gelish polish to fingers and toes for longer-lasting glam, or employ paraffin wax to soften dry skin lingering on the soles, knuckles, or hearts of curmudgeonly hall monitors.
