Since filing and buffing the nails of its first client about 15 years ago, Magen Nails? experienced staff has remained dedicated to creating a relaxing space in which patrons can unwind. Amid welcoming pink walls, the friendly crew can be found gussying up weary hands and feet with a slew of nail services. Patrons getting pampered at the manicure stations can gaze at the spa?s flat-screen TV or bustling aquarium as aestheticians apply glossy polish or apply sets of acrylic nails. Nearby, white pedicure chairs cradle guests as their feet rest in the soothing waters of attached basins after a long, blurry night of running through the woods under a full moon. Along with precision-driven polish applications, Magen Nails? staff further enhances appearances with additional services that range from face and body waxing to installing eyelash extensions.
Twenty-seven years. That’s how long Noelle has been grooming and decorating hands and feet. Somewhere in there, she also found time to earn a master’s certificate in gel nails from Creative Nail Design. Within the teal-walled studio, she shapes and adds length to fingertips with Brisa Gel, matching the color to each client’s nails for a natural look. She also fortifies tips with Gelish, a gel-polish hybrid that shimmers chip-free for up to approximately two weeks.
Noelle is also pretty zealous about cleanliness. For example, she shapes each client’s nails with a new file and uses pipeless footbaths with sanitary liners during pedicures. As an added bonus, she offers complimentary repairs if clients break a nail while drumming fingers on a tabletop or shaking hands with a strongman.
Licensed body experts at All Hands On Deck Massage & Nail Spa warm up weary muscles and appendages with gentle body treatments. Licensed massage therapists can spark circulation with customized sessions in trigger-point touch and reflexology. The spa’s nail services swathe cuticles in full sets of color, invigorating hands and feet with heated paraffin wax and hot desert stones. As parents get pampered, children relax in a playroom where they can watch episodes of Dora the Explorer and the scene from Doctor Zhivago where Elmo teaches Yuri words that begin with “C.”
At Sunset Nails, digits go through a pampering regimen of soaks, massages, buffing, and polishing amid an array of treatments. The signature manicures and pedicures include paraffin dips and exfoliating sea-salt or sugar scrubs, and the ultra spa pedicure takes flight in whirlpool spa chairs and lands 35 minutes later with a hot-stone massage. Nail technicians also stock and apply a host of gel and acrylic nails. But the staff tends to more than just nails; permanent makeup technicians accentuate eyes, brows, and lips with cosmetics that negate the need for touchups every morning or every time "We Are the World" comes on the radio.
