Contrary to popular belief and science, healthy human nails aren't supposed to grow; they should remain static, glossy, and the color of your choice. But most of us contracted a disease from playground equipment that makes our nails grow at alarming rates, lose their luster, cease to be our favorite color, and become unattractively translucent.
A chandelier twinkles against the backdrop of cream- and sea-foam-hued walls, spilling light onto hardwood floors and modern, aluminum-steel manicure stations. But this spa-like vibe is only part of Splash Nail Bar’s charm. Its talented staffers pull from the finest products to revitalize hands and feet during mani-pedis—always adhering to strict sanitary practices. They also dole out luxurious extras, such as extended massages, paraffin wraps, and long-lasting gel manicures.

The old slough-and-buff technique has no place at Pediworx, where licensed nail technicians trained in European methods and tools treat clients to the latest in foot- and nailcare. The spa, which doubles as both a nail salon and podiatry office, infuses modern technology with custom care to not only primp nails, but also to solve common ailments, such as ingrown nails, athlete’s foot, and Nixon-shaped calluses. Guests can relax at any of the two locations—including spots inside the Harbor Square Athletic Club and Seattle Athletic Club—as the team also treats both hands and feet to spa-like treatments topped off with shiny polish.
Massage therapists, nail technicians, and aestheticians form the task force at Zeka Salon & Spa. Their mission: to help their clients look and feel their best. This may sound simple, but the team takes great care to ensure that every spa visit is a memorably relaxing one. Whether you're winding down with a massage in a dimly lit room or chatting with the technician as she carefully applies mink lashes, you'll never feel out of your element?that is, unless you want to. The stylists can drastically change your look with haircuts, highlights, and perms, making it easier to stop strangers in their tracks but harder to convince your mother that it's still you.
