Cozy pedicure chairs and throwback decor make Pink Blush Boutique and Nail Spa an enticing space for relaxation and pampering. Nail techs lavish hands and feet with a bevy of mani-pedis, and clients can also opt for gel acrylics. Like a well-bred cat, Pink Blush maintains exceptional sanitation and hygiene standards, and visitors can peruse a boutique section fully stocked with fashionable apparel, shoes, and giftable accessories.
It's quiet in Aqua the Day Spa. No cell phones or pagers are allowed to remain active in either of the two locations, so all you hear is your pulse slowing to a steady, soothing beat and the tiny noises made as expert hands open bottles of designer beauty products. Open since 1998, owners Susan and Ralph Barnette struck the right, Enya-like chord in 2003, when they first earned the title of Best Day Spa in the Jackson Free Press's annual "Best Of" roundup. The team of aestheticians and massage therapists have swept that title every year since, deflating the competition in proportion to lifting spirits. Paraben-free Skin Authority and scented Tokyomilk tonics nourish skin with vitamin-rich Moroccan clay and soothing mango, or exfoliate dead cells with bamboo salves scented with ylang-ylang. The staff's nimble hands blend these into custom treatments, including those to combat aging and the strange shadows creeping over men's skin, and work aromatherapeutic elixirs into muscles with nine different massage modalities. OPI and Shellac nail polish transform hands and feet into fashion accessories, a project helped along by smoothing wax.
For $10, you get a dry pedicure with OPI polish (a $20 value). For $13, you get a warm-mitt manicure with hand massage and OPI polish (a $25 value). For $17, you get a warm-mitt manicure with Shellac polish (a $35 value).
Bright pink walls and zebra-printed accents draw customers into BDazzled with Judy, LLC, a destination for those in search of snazzy beauty treatments. The staff specializes in skincare, eyelash extensions, waxing, therapeutic massages, mani-pedis, and kids’ pedicures, which take place atop a child’s spa chair complete with a set of decorative butterfly wings on the back. The staff also pieces together spa packages for clients’ weddings or birthday parties.
Bright-lime-colored walls create an atmosphere of healthful exuberance inside Five Star Spa & Nails, mirroring the spa’s commitment to keeping bodies healthy and groomed with scientifically influenced skincare and up-to-date trends. Aestheticians are trained to perfect complexions, gently buffing away wrinkles and spots with microdermabrasion wands and removing brown spots or moles impulsively grown during the beauty-mark craze. When not grooming skin, whisking away body hair, or lengthening lashes, technicians flex their relaxation chops with a range of massages that can be augmented with exfoliating scrubs and tension-melting hot stones. Sitting amongst rows of Avon and OPI products, the spa’s nail technicians work to groom nails with tiers of mani-pedi treatments that make feet feel more special than being picked first to kick the moon.
