Rock & Polish boasts a unique dual purpose. Billed as a "pamper bar by day, event space by night," the stylish 900-square-foot facility hosts dinner parties, baby showers, and other social gatherings beneath its handmade glass chandeliers, but it also offers a full slate of sophisticated spa offerings.
On the spa side, the staff focuses on natural nail care. Though customers can opt for gel nails, the nail techs won't apply acrylics or glue man-made wigs onto fingers. In fact, nail techs even take time to teach clients how to strengthen nails that have been ravaged by chemical treatments and acrylics. Mani-pedis are available for both men and women, and clients can add on services such as paraffin, massage, and custom nail art. Lash extensions and waxing round out the treatment menu, providing options for hard wax, honey wax, or creme wax (for sensitive skin), so spa-goers can get pampered from head to toe.
Pamela Golightly was "green" before it was cool. The natural nail-care specialist has long been dedicated to eco-friendly practices since she began her career in 1986, ?servicing the community for more than 28 years? and utilizing paper wraps instead of fiberglass wraps and filing nails by hand rather than relying on electric files or coal-guzzling robots. Her thoughtful, all-natural approach to nail care has resulted in a slew of dedicated return customers. Unlike other processes that depend on heavy chemical use, her organic approach results in zero incidents of nail damage, mold, or adverse reactions from allergy-prone cuticles. Pamela's natural approach helps nail services last up to two weeks. This same awareness carries over into her community endeavors, including her frequent contributions to local schools and nonprofit organizations.
The recently opened nail salon Polished Perfection offers a cozy retreat to clients, with cool, neutral colors on the walls and plush leather chairs to recline in as the technicians do their work. The staff trim, sculpt, and buff nails, then finish with a coat of polish. They use just about every color and style of polish one could imagine, offering a selection of more than 300 different nail polishes.
An oasis of relaxation and nice smells, Qua Foot Spa lets guests sip steaming chrysanthemum or lavender tea as they enjoy foot massages. Sea-salt baths and exfoliating scrubs soften heels and toes roughened from stepping on the rocks that your roommate leaves scattered around the hallway, and reflexology massages aim to restore energy flow through the body?s meridians to relieve tension.

Massaged with lotion, swaddled in hot towels, dunked in warm oils, or submerged in melted paraffin, fingers and toes take it easy here. This is Sen Beauty & Spa, where nail technicians incorporate a wealth of relaxing spa extras. After donning gels or polishes, many duck into one of the private treatment rooms for a leg wax or a brow-threading session. Others skip out of the sunny, light blue spa to show off new manicures.
