At Sterling Nail Salon, techs pamper fingers and toes with mani-pedis, neatly trimming nails and adorning them with gleaming polish. Optional therapeutic add-ons include lavender, green tea, and happy thoughts. For long-lasting nails that can withstand day-to-day wear, try the Shellac polish?which stays chip-free for two weeks?or UV-gel nails. These artificial extensions create length with an odor-free, smooth finish that's more eco-friendly than traditional acrylic nails.
