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.
At Sandra Legaspi One Stop Shop, a salon located within Bronze and Beauty, clients can escape the worries of the world and focus on feeling good, be it for a whole day or just an hour. Cosmetologist Sandra Legaspi helps visitors look and feel their best, decorating nails with gel polish and sculpting acrylic rock-star nails embellished with gemstones or golden spikes. She also creates chic, flattering hairstyles and smoothes skin with facial waxing.
It?s all about the patterns. Using a tiny brush, licensed nail technician Valerie paints animal prints, hearts, polka dots, or flowers on clients' nail canvases. She repeats each pattern 10 times?enough to cover the nails on both hands. Aside from creating eye-popping artwork, Valerie dishes out classic manicures, finished off with a traditional nail-polish hue in soft pink or camouflage.
At Paradise nails, aesthetician Ashley specializes in hair and nail extensions. Among the array of products she uses are Beauty Today and Young Nail for acrylic nails, OPI for manicures and pedicures, and IBD and Gelish for no-chip services.
With a certificate from the Creative Nail Academy in hand, Sara Ann could have left her expertise at that––but she didn’t. Beauty is an ever-evolving field. That’s why she went on to receive an electric-filing certification, and she is now pursuing cosmetology licensure at the Milan Institute. Drawing on the skills gleaned from her continuing education on top of more than six years of experience, Sara crafts gel nails, long-lasting Shellac manicures, and more than 300 custom-mixed RockStar acrylics for her clients. Sara also has a deft hand for 3D nail art in intricate designs such as cupcakes, roses, or surrealist paintings of Salvador Dalí painting his nails.
