Color is key at Candi Nail Salon. Whether it's the salon's rows of more than 500 polish colors on display or its pink walls and accent furniture, the space introduces itself in vivid color and suggests colorful transformations to be had. This comes by way of manicures and pedicures gussied up with rhinestone designs and 3D embossing, but the design is just the end product. Before the polishing begins, nail technicians dote upon clients with relaxing treatments such as hot stone foot massages, which soothe tension in the muscles and reward the feet for carrying the weight of the whole body, plus the spare brain we keep in case of emergency.
Voted Best Nail Salon of Lake Wylie 2013. At iColor Nail Bar, the spa treatments aim to do more than beautify clients' nails and skin. They also provide a brief, yet relaxing escape from everyday life. Even the mani-pedis can incorporate everything from soothing mint masks to hot-towel wraps, turning the treatments into luxurious indulgences. Simultaneously, the technicians and aestheticians take a results-oriented approach to ensure clients leave looking their best. They accomplish this by using high-quality products, including Dermalogica skincare products and handmade balms mixed using organic fruits, vegetables, herbs, and local honey.
At Lily Nail Spa, guests sip complimentary beverages as talented nail technicians swaddle feet and fingernails in soothing cocoons of relaxation during luxurious pedicure and polish treatments. During a Deluxe pedicure, sterilized equipment removes calluses before trimming cuticles and nails to ready feet for the lavender pampering to come. Tootsies exfoliate during a lavender scrub, purr during the paraffin dip, and forget the stress of upcoming double-dutch tournaments during a massage before getting a protective coat of nail polish. The gel polish shields natural, colored, or french-manicured nails with a strong coating that protects and encourages growth like a house plant’s motivational speaker for two to three weeks.

Polished’s all-out manicure soothes skin and smoothes gnarled nails. A citrus exfoliation treatment washes out dead skin cells and unclogs packed pores, while a paraffin dip bathes hands in a warm wax to relieve stiff joints and muscles. Nails are filed and styled, and an orange-perfumed hand and arm massage refreshes like a cool breeze whispering through an Ocala orange grove.
