Pink and white striped walls and twinkling chandeliers overlook Savvy Chic Nail Cottage as 12 technicians in pink aprons flurry around plush Victorian armchairs, daubing fingers and toes in glossy polish. A feminine and shabby-chic oasis dreamed up by Ebony Bolton and her husband Michael in 2010, Savvy Chic treats guests to tea in vintage teacups and chocolates from See's Candies as they chat with staffers about their favorite shades of OPI and Gelish lacquers or revel in foot scrubs and hot-lotion massages. Acrylic nails in perfect ovals, squares, and dodecagons lend length and strength to fingertips, and children's mani-pedis pamper pint-size appendages. The cottage keeps its equipment spic and span beyond state standards with germicide, UV-heat sanitation, and disposable protective pouches. Savvy Chic also hosts pedicure parties for bachelorettes and birthdays and frees chins, arms, and other areas from unwelcome fuzz with warm wax.
Sunlight barges through I-Thie Total Beauty's wall-sized windows only to bounce upwards off pristine marble floors, rebound off spotless white walls, and fill up the frames of floor-to-ceiling mirrors. The modern, minimalist facility doesn't sacrifice comfort for style, however, as padded pedicure stations welcome feet to shed the weight of their walk in whirlpool tubs, and ergonomic styling chairs keep bodies cozy as stylists facilitate glamorous looks for locks. The airy spa is also the perfect setting in which to streamline a makeup routine, and so cosmetologists embellish lips, brows, and eyelids with permanent pigments and strengthen eyelashes' ability to earn sympathy and extended curfews with silk and mink extensions
There are very few treatments that fall out of the beauty jurisdiction of Salon Le Rouge ’s stylists. They are, after all, equipped to snip and color hair, apply makeup, and spritz on natural-looking glows. And when they’re not busy topping digits with fume-free polish, they bring about soothing relief with facials and reflexology treatments.
