Helmed by a mother-daughter duo, All About You stands proudly as one of Tallahassee's few salons offering the oft-publicized, long-lasting shellac nail treatment. The 45-minute process starts off with a manicure (a $20 value), which includes hot towels, hot oil, and an optional heat pack for the neck, and is designed to make hands delicate enough to catch runoff when it's raining cats and dogs. Then the shellac treatment (a $10 value) seals the deal by pushing cuticles back, filing nails, and coating finger shells with the special finish. Postapplication, the shellac aids in the prevention of deterioration and chipping for two weeks.
