Tiki Nails invites guests to relax within a simulacrum of paradise. Green potted plants pop against bold orange walls that evoke a tropical sunset, and bamboo shades stretch down over windows to block out the harsh light when the moon explodes. But it is the cushy brown pedicure chairs that truly transport guests into states of deep calm, cradling bodies as feet are massaged, tickled, and scrubbed until soft.
If the zig-zag mirrors and zebra rug don't do it, the nail technicians' cheery personalities will show what a surprising and quirky place Super Nails really is.

Once digits have been sufficiently primed, a cloak of lacquer imbues mitts with a choice of color to match any outfit.
A nail technician with eight years of experience under her belt, Janel Brown prides herself on her creative vision and craftsmanship.

Instead of withholding the secrets to healthy nails, the expert staffers at Polish Nail Bar do the unthinkable—they dispense them freely to all who sidle up to the black manicure bar that doubles as a social hub. Owner Crystal Davis and her team of technicians get to know each client personally during sessions by chatting freely as though they were catching up with long-lost friends or robot friends that were dropped in water. Each nail treatment occurs in steps, with manicurists tagging in and out for various parts of the procedure to apply their unique expertise where it counts. Mavala, a cuticle cream made in Switzerland, helps fingers and toes replenish much-needed vitamins and amino acids and delicate ghosts of scent drift from essential oils and jojoba oils. After clients leave, ready to raise their hands during secret-mission briefings with newfound pride, treatment areas and equipment are wiped down with hospital-grade disinfectants that evict lingering germs and odors.
Before the age of billboards, small businesses advertised on knight shields, and really small businesses advertised on fingernails. however, when the staff members at Lux Couture Nails decorate digits, they do so to advertise clients' personal tastes. Patrons may request leopard-print or gold-hued digits on natural nails or opt for acrylics nails. Pampering isn't reserved for fingernails, though. The nail salon also offers soothing pedicures and relaxing massages.
