Metro Nails invites weary guests to relax under the massaging ministrations of gleaming white and maroon pedicure chairs as techs pamper and polish digits through various treatments. Classic mani-pedis see finger- and toenails transformed with cuticle care and meticulous filing, and French mani-pedis cap each finger with their iconic white tips and each toe with a crusty heel of bread. Customers can select their finishing color of choice from rows of OPI, Essie, and LeChat polish, or opt for CND Shellac to score shine that withstands chips and scratches for up to 14 days.
From within Portfolio Hair & Beauty Works, the team at Nails by Francesca pays close attention to scents when beautifying hands and feet. They enhance their mani-pedis with decadent blackberry-vanilla sugar scrubs, blackurrant soy masks, and vanilla massage cream. If vanilla isn’t your scent of choice, fear not: they also dote on feet with lemon soufflé- or chocolate mint-infused pedicure treatments. To cap off sessions, nail techs top digits with glittery nail art or long-lasting Shellac.
Manicurist Colleen Walsh doles out sparkling new nails in a rainbow's worth of colors. Whether softening skin with fruit-infused treatments, enlivening high-fives with long-lasting Shellac manicures, or prophesying the fate of a foot's worth of little piggies, Colleen maintains a careful professionalism and attention to detail in all she does.
Expert aesthetician Bonnie Berry of Impeccable 10 Nails deploys more than 30 years of digit-tending wisdom to pamper individuals with a bevy of beautifying transformations. Designed for women who take pleasure in flaunting a baroque set of nails, the CND Hybrid Shellac manicure outfits each pincer in an exquisite, lustrous layer of Shellac guaranteed to last for 14 days without chipping or running off to become a part of the nearest magic mirror. The 45-minute treatment leaves nails and cuticles trimmed, shaped, and buffed for a lovely 10-piece ensemble of newly primped Fritos grabbers. Running a no-credit-card operation, Berry burnishes extremities within the tranquil ambience of Golden Touch Salon, which is situated near shopping where clients can go postmanicure to pick up finger-shaped blouses.

At Arden's Nails, it doesn't matter whether a client wants to be in and out in an hour or linger for the afternoon?either way, they'll be pampered the entire time. Nail care services leave hands and feet looking and feeling equally great, thanks to mani-pedis that can include scrubs, paraffin dips, mud masques, cuticle trims, and nail shapings. Shellac and gel polishes leave nails perfectly polished and chip-free for days, and silk and acrylic nail options are also available.
The pampering doesn't end with nails, though?the spa also beautifies with chemical peels and waxing services, plus a choice of permanent or standard makeup applications, depending on the level of commitment to eyeliner.
