Elite Style Salon & Spa's licensed nail technician Michelle applies her more than 10 years of experience to tame unruly talons and rejuvenate extremities with an array of digit-detailing services. During the 90-minute Shellac mani-pedi, Michelle’s intuitive clippers corral cuticles and trim nails before a curiously math-savvy nail file shapes them into geometrically sound parabolas. Finally, a coat of chip-resistant polish strengthens nails for rigorous scratch-n-sniff competitions while providing smudge-free gloss for up to two weeks.
