Sheera Amundson, the owner of Addicted to Nails, is passionate about nailcare. A 14-year veteran of the trade, Sheera harbors a particular fondness for rock-star nail enhancements. Her flashy designs have even caught the eyes of Perfectify Magazine, where she publishes her two cents from time to time. Sheera's staff believe in the importance of educating their clients about proper nailcare and sanitation. Their nailcare arsenal includes the Sani Bowl–a special sanitized pedicure bowl–and products from Creative Nail Design, Young Nails, and OPI , which they uses to shape fingernails during their signature french manicures.
The staff at Love AdoraBella keeps up with the latest trends and techniques by taking classes offered by Young Nails, a product line with a bold, youthful edge. Leveraging such lessons, the technicians apply their skills during services such as glitter-enhanced pedicures and gel-overlay manicures. Though the beauty haven specializes in nails, its staff can also beautifies clients with customized makeup applications or product recommendations pulled from the salon’s online boutique.
From within Salon Boutique, Annette Reedy of Annette’s Nail Salon tends to the fingers and toes of her guests. With gel polishes in hand, she anoints fingernails with eye-catching colors. During pedicures, she massages feet and lower legs, in addition to exfoliating the skin. She also offers acrylic nails, along with classic and French manicures.
Just because fingernails and toenails are small doesn't mean they can't be festive. The technicians at LaVie Nails gear up for each major holiday with themed nail art: patriotic colors for the 4th of July, green for St. Patrick's Day, and bright pastels for Easter. They even offer pink designs for Breast Cancer Awareness month, dappling nails with hearts and ribbons.
The technicians maintain attitudes that are just as cheery as their polish designs, and they prioritize continuing education to stay on top of mani-pedi trends. As they pamper clients in lipstick-red pedicure chairs, they wield thoroughly sterilized tools, conducting add-ons such as callus treatments, foot scrubs, and hot-stone massages. After their appointments, clients can browse LaVie's line of bejeweled sandals.
In addition to their polish, gel, and acrylic treatments, the staff members also administer custom facials. They pull from Dermalogica and PCA Skin products to address a range of skincare concerns, from acne and signs of aging to buildups of dead and zombified skin cells. Waxing services round out the spa menu with a focus on speed and comfort.
Élan Nails and Spa sets itself apart with little luxurious touches, including deep pedicure chairs, organic lotion, and high-end nail polishes. Clients relax in the plush pedicure thrones as nail techs trim, shape, and polish hands or feet with OPI polish. A leg and foot massage completes the relaxing experience. From the ceiling dangle oversized golden stars, which guide guests to the spa's private aesthetician’s room where specialists perfect complexions with customized facials and stardust harvested in-house.
The skilled technicians at 4D Nails work in a variety of artistic media?natural and acrylic nails, traditional polish and Shellac?to beautify fingers and toes. They first prepare their clients' digits by filing nails into handsome ovals, squares, or octagons, then paint them in the selected shade of varnish. Tired feet get scrubbed and moisturized after a soak in a warm pedicure bath, and upgraded services include a dip in soothing paraffin wax.
