The licensed nail techs at Koi Nail Spa work hard to pamper clients in a thoroughly sanitary and stress-free environment. Begin a 30-minute pedicure with the embrace of a gloriously pleasant hot towel and a sweetly soothing chocolate or peppermint mud-mask application. An exfoliating foot scrub repairs dried-out leg endings and prepares them for an extensive double-length massage, which softens soles from heel to toe. After the finishing touches have been applied, patrons leave Koi energized and invigorated, ready to run a marathon, complete a walk-a-thon, or watch a telethon without falling asleep face-first in a bowl of popcorn.
The fact that the staff at Ecco Nails & Spa specialize in nail treatments doesn’t mean that they forget their designation as a spa. Ecco's staff add pampering elements to even the most basic services, including warm herbal soaks, hot-stone massages, heated towel wraps and clay and chocolate masks. Tucked away in private treatment rooms, aestheticians perform facials, during which they slather façades with gentle Dermalogica products, which are customizable to each client’s skin type and favorite flavor of pie. Out on the nail floor, beneath the glow of golden sconces, technicians show off their skills by meticulously painting nails using OPI polish and CND Shellac, which resists chips for up to 14 days.
• For $30, you get a purifying facial (a $60 value). • For $30, you get a hydrating facial (a $60 value). • For $40, you get a rejuvenating facial (an $80 value). Peaceful Intentions Spa revamps tired smile mantels with its deep-cleaning nourishing facials. Each façade refurbishing commences with a consultation with an aesthetician, during which clients can discuss memories from their face's childhood. Patrons then slip into a relaxing reverie as genial face whisperers deep clean faces and then scrub away dead skin cells, grime, and oil with an exfoliation. Afterward, a specialty mask is applied to skin, allowing customers to assume the appearance of their favorite Cheers cast member. The grand pampering concludes with a face, hand, arm, and shoulder massage, which banishes stress and tension from corporal kingdoms. Peaceful Intentions Spa recommends the purifying facial's ingredients for those prone to breakouts, the rich hydrating facial for environmentally stressed skin, and the rejuvenating facial as a method to smooth, plump, and retexture mature skin.
