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.
With its sleek white walls, alabaster manicure stations, and splashes of bright color emanating from wall decorations and knickknacks, Colour Nail Bar looks more like a modern boutique than a traditional nail salon. This stylish decor lends to the salon’s laid-back ambiance, which is reinforced by its motto, "Happy hour begins when you walk in!" Amid the piped-in music and social atmosphere, licensed nail technicians take pride in their artistic designs, which grace nails during sessions guided by strict sanitation guidelines. A sophisticated air-filtration system draws unsavory vapors away from the salon floor, and free WiFi keeps customers connected to their fantasy thumb-wrestling rosters.
Expert nail artists at Final Touch Nails & Spa apply a mélange of aromatic herbs and oils to naturally refine fingers and toes. Lucky digits begin with a customized botanical experience that offers selections from the spa's fragrant herb menu such as rosemary, ginger root, and chamomile flower. Hands and feet simmer in a warm water bath to cleanse nails, soften skin, and enact complex rubber-ducky dramas before manicure mavens pamper cuticles and lovingly shape nails. After calluses and dead skin cells are banished to epidermal underworlds, a hot-stone massage and warm-towel treatment melt away excess tension. A paraffin treatment also teams up with a soothing mask to leave skin hydrated and silky smooth before the one-hour cuticle coddling culminates with a choice of lacquer, nail strengthener, or Star Trek–themed finger puppets.

As when it was founded in 2007, Nail Tech Shell
remains a one-woman show. The single manicurist behind the business continues to sculpt and paint nails with ever-increasing deftness. She's got a gentle touch. "Most clients fall asleep from being completely relaxed while receiving a pedicure," she comments. When she's done banishing cuticles, hangnails, and rough edges, she likes to finish off the treatment by applying a coat of color-changing gel polish. The magical polish changes color as your body changes temperature, which is a good way to confirm that it's cold outside or to notify yourself if you're at risk of spontaneously combusting.
Utilizing Jan Marini’s C-Esta product line, Pura Bella Salon and Spa's Lindsey Byrd glamorizes visages with pampering facial treatments. The one-hour appointment begins with a deep cleansing and speedy exfoliation that clears skin of outdated layers and last season’s grime. The aesthetician then wrangles unwanted subcutaneous entities with a pore-extraction session and dote upon the upper body and scalp with a light massage. A hydrating vitamin C mask coats epidermal coverings, with skin-tightening serums reinvigorating tension like a courtroom drama surprise witness. The glow-bestowing session finishes with an eye treatment, refreshing and invigorating peepholes as patrons leave the salon’s soothing confines.
