Art of Nail Salon’s technicians pamper nails into states of beauty with manicures, pedicures, and acrylic-nail services. High-five tournaments amp up with manicured hands, whether soft from a paraffin dip or elongated with a set of acrylic nails. During deluxe spa pedicures, feet unwind in a soothing bath of essential oils before a scrub to remove barnacles, a clay mud mask, and a massage. Some of the salon’s skilled techs are also experts in specialty nailcare, including caring for ingrown toenails or the feet of people with diabetes.
A real passion for her job is what makes Barbara Silvia look forward to coming into work every day, she explains on her website. She has worked as a nail technician for three years performing mani-pedis. Most recently, she relocated to a booth inside Sunflower Salon, where she specializes in acrylic nails and elaborate nail art. Barbara works hard to keep abreast of current trends, from using long-lasting gel polish to decorating digits with portraits of popular CEOs.

Nails by Jamie's eponymous nail technician caters to cuticles of the fingers and toes from within the confines of her French-themed salon. Jamie and her staff luxuriate clients with relaxing services that indulge not only nails, but also palates with a glass of tea or wine. After feet exit their shoes or an antagonistic neighbor's flower bush, they plop into a warm bath as their upper floors recline on a sleek and sanitary new pedicure station during the one-hour spa pedicure. While bubbles and jets tickle tension from toes, a massage accomplishes the same on calves but with firm pressure and smooth strokes. Once nails and skin have softened, techs scrub feet and treat calluses. When both fingernails and toenails have been trimmed, treated, and shaped, the surface is prepped for polish. Nails are draped with an ensemble of color that displays a conservative sheen or an extreme sky blue to make fingertips invisible when waving on a clear day. Customers can check out the online gallery to see some of Jamie’s past cuticle creations.
Eschewing salons cluttered with chemical-laden products, The Eco Salon supplies earth-friendly beauty services that emphasize local, natural products. The salon’s interiors greet guests with whimsical environs of black leather salon chairs and ornately framed mirrors offset by pink-and-white-striped walls. The signature european facial takes place in The Eco Salon's dedicated treatment room, where a skin specialist applies an all-natural French green-clay mask. An aromatherapy pressure-point massage alleviates stress, as the scent of Chilean rose-hip-seed oil encourages relaxation. The facial aims to give skin a more toned, tightened appearance and a glow radiant enough to microwave an entire frozen ham.
