A lot of people get manicures and pedicures for the results. Nail Garden is intent on making sure their clients enjoy the process, as well. After settling into a pedicure chair with a cup of tea or glass of wine, your feet soak in a pipe-free basin with orange slices floating on the water's surface. Nail techs perform a hand or foot massage with each treatment, often using a warmed anti-oxidant oil.

And Nail Garden's techs promise that if your polish chips within the first 72 hours after you get your nails done, they'll redo it and you won't have to pay a single cent in return or give them one of your treasured livestock. These extra touches have drawn a noteworthy crowd, with Us Weekly reporting visits from celebs such as Vanessa Hudgens.

In addition to spa manicures and pedicures, the staff performs treatments such as lash tintings, lash-extension applications, and teeth whitening. Depending on the location, decor elements might include hand-blown light pendants or preserved trees.

Almost everything starts with a handshake. That’s how many people begin friendships, partnerships, or epic rivalries that span generations. And it isn’t just the firmness of a good shake that gets one’s attention. It’s the maintenance of the hand with which they’re conjoined. Casablanca Nail Salon understands.

That’s why the nail-art salon lavishes hands and feet with natural sugar scrubs, grapefruit and botanical extracts, and skin-softening paraffin. Recognizing the importance of first impressions, staffers welcome clients with complimentary cups of warm moroccan tea and lead them to massaging pedicure thrones in the shade of a fabric awning. After treatment, nail technicians coat nails with OPI or Zoya polish. They can also decorate keratin surfaces with unique art that can suit a wide range of style preferences.

ROB|B is the only OPI concept salon in the country that offers the indulgent product line throughout your treatment. Once brushed with the brilliant colors and lasting strength of OPI nail lacquer, your fingers are topped with Drip Dry and Avoplex Cuticle Oil to set your shine and nourish your cuticles. Once the treatment is complete, you’ll demand fingerprint analysis to verify that your hands have not been surgically replaced by genetically perfect knuckle wagons. Then it's time to slip off your socks for another round of cuticle prep, a foot massage, and a final coat.

The staff at Mani-Kir Royale treats each nail as a mini canvas as they paint detailed images with the help of OPI and CND products. They flaunt their marquee nail services not just with artistry in mind, but cleanliness as well, as evidence by their use of disposable implements and complete absence of bacteria-fostering whirlpool footbaths. The staff breaks open brand-new manicure kits for all first-time clients, who may elect to store their wares at the salon for subsequent services or bring them home to use on the overgrown talons of an eagle spouse. This allegiance to sanitation doesn't stop with their services, as the salon itself sparkles as the staff performs other services, such as waxing, bleaching, facials, and tanning.
