Posh Nail Studio's team of dedicated, licensed technicians welcome guests to their upscale, modern facility and present a full lineup of nail, hair, and other salon services, maintaining a commitment to sanitation, quality work, and a high level of professionalism. Private rooms accoutered with leather recliners host clients, and the appointment-only scheduling paradigm reflects the staff's dedication to punctuality and respect for clients' time. The staff keeps things clean during manicures and pedicures by sanitizing all tools, never reusing files, and hanging a cautionary "Beware of Guard Soap" sign to keep germs at bay. On top of nail treatments, stylists also snip and shape locks with haircare treatments and tan hides with both UV- and sunless-tanning solutions.
Creating a fun and festive environment that dazzles wide-eyed youngsters, Snip-its takes the stress out of maintaining the locks of jittery tykes. A kid-friendly staff maintains manes while ensuring safety—which is of paramount concern—by providing chairs especially designed for miniature adults. During the cut, melted crayons and various knickknacks are snipped away from tussled noodle nests, leaving hairs as fresh as the day they were born. While the follicular wreckage is brushed off, children can play with a bounty of activities and games. With so much to keep young eyes occupied, the atmosphere almost feels like that inside the house that Ruth built—Disneyland.
Start your journey into relaxation with a 45-minute therapy manicure ($38) and an hour-long therapy pedicure ($55), designed to perk up digits in time for competitive hand-puppet season. In addition to the standard line-up of cuticle shaping, nail buffing, and polish administering included in classic mani-pedi productions, therapy sessions include a stress-dissolving hand and calf massage, as well as exfoliating scrubs to whisk skin scales off to Valhalla in botanically scented glory. Follow your blissful beautifying treatment with an Instant Radiance facial, which will steam, cleanse, tone, and moisturize your weary dermis. Or choose the Instant Delight massage to relieve back and neck muscles worn-out from repeated coy glances over your shoulder.

The specialists at Trinity Salon & Day Spa divide their attention between the face and body, though they make sure not to skimp on either.

Custom airbrush tans imbue skin with a natural, UV-free glow, and eyelash extensions enhance the length and volume of lashes without mascara or growth hormones.
