Though the outside of Cartel Inc. resembles a simple brown and white house, the nail sets inside are anything but plain. They range from glossy pink-and-white sets to painted acrylics, emblazoned with seasonal designs such as spiraling hearts and Halloween spiders. Some shimmer with rhinestones, and others fade from dark to light hues. The technicians work with gels as well, which last for two to three weeks without chipping.
As for the stylists, they don't neglect fun colors, either. They specialize in lending hair new shades, whether they're part of an all-over dye job, an ombre fade, or a corrective color treatment. Of course, they also administer fashionable trims and updos.
