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.

The Humble Abode salon and spa feels like home?which is not surprising, as it's situated inside a cottage surrounded by greenery and beaming with natural light. And it's easy to make yourself at home there, too, because their menu's extensive selection of services could easily require a whole day's sojourn. Beauty treatments include lash tinting and six kinds of facials, such as lactic peels and microdermabrasion. The signature facial pampers each of the face's 55 muscles?a perfect complement to the luxuriating body treatments, including deep-tissue massage and reflexology.

Those looking for more internal therapy can seek out one of the three chiropractic doctors, who aim to treat anything from sports injuries to spinal dysfunction. The Humble Abode also has a certified hypnotherapist, Myke Zykoff, who addresses behavioral issues with hypnotherapy and the calming effects of meditation.

To help guests ease their pain through fitness, a team of instructors leads Pilates classes in both group and private sessions. The bending and stretching sessions take place in a sunny studio furnished with reformer machines and mats, which can double as beds if you just never want to leave.
