A brushed metal sign atop a cabinet of top industry products sets the stage for the experience at Pacific Sun Tanning Company—a contemporary tanning salon rated No. 1 by the readers of Reno News & Reviews for the last five years. The salon's UV specialists undertake Smart Tan's comprehensive certification before bending the sun's radiation to their will, learning the ins and outs of ray exposure, selecting ideal skincare products, and discerning which compliments will coax Helios into sharing his private stash of solar beams. They can also eschew the sun entirely and bestow beachy glows through custom spray-tan services. The popular tanning facilities and the staff's enthusiastic demeanor have expanded into six locations throughout the Reno and Sparks.

Destinations Salon and Spa's meticulous nail technician, Patty, colorizes digits with glitzy manicures, artificial nail applications, and pedicures performed in massaging chairs. The manicure and pedicure each kick off with a sugar scrub, which smoothes skin by sloughing off dead skin cells and deterring hair from its quest to construct the least efficacious kind of body armor—the soft braided kind. Keratin caregivers prune overgrown cuticles and whittle nail topiaries before glazing them in a uniform coat of glossy polish. Fresh sets of artificial gel or acrylic nails in pink and white or colorful hues settle atop fingers to guard underlying talons like a child who keeps siblings out of her room by silly-puttying the door shut.
