Beneath twinkling chandeliers and black-and-white photos of old Hollywood stars, The Sour Apple Nail Bar and Tanning Lounge's skillful staff pampers patrons with a battery of soothing spa services. A Breakfast at Tiffany's facial first varnishes visages with exfoliating SkinCeuticals products before employing steam and extractions to open clogged pores for a renewed complexion as bright and clean as a cryogenically frozen cheerleader. A Manique-Her manicure uses sanitary single-use nail files and buffers to reshape nails before a soothing scrub washes hands of dead skin, kennel club stamps, and fake-blood stains (a $30 value). Finally, semi-permanent Shellac polish clamps down on unruly fingertip coalitions with a long-lasting coat of hard colour that can last without chipping for at least two weeks (a $25 value). After your treatment is complete, enjoy complimentary waterfront views through the spa's large windows.
They may seem small, but when done right, nails can be the first thing people notice about you. At Nini Nails & Pedi Spa, nail techs are determined to create attention-grabbing nails. With gel mani-pedis, they dress up digits in eye-catching, chip-resistant polishes in myriad colours. Nail artists can decorate nails with all manner of patterns and shapes. Artificial nails are an option, too, as are waxing and eyebrow-tinting treatments.
Get Nailed Nail Bar shapes fingertips, prettifies paws, and eases away stress in a bright, casual environment. One of Get Nailed's skilled manicurists tend to upper appendages with a long soak, reflexology massage for hands and arms, and a marshmallow mask. Nails emerge anew after a cuticle softening treatment, artful shaping, and decorative polish. The Ice Cream Pedi features flavours that rotate monthly, like a slow-motion ballerina, and uses ME! Bath products to cleanse, exfoliate, scrub, and soften. To ensure clients aren’t upstaged by an idle prism paperweight, Get Nailed stocks a spectrum of polish from OPI and China Glaze.
There’s a lot to like about La Lotus Nails Spa, a beauty emporium whose team of professional technicians doesn’t stop at the hands and feet. Though mani-pedis—especially OPI manicures with a chip-resistant soak-off gel polish—are their specialty, they also treat bodies to multiple types of facials, massages, and waxing treatments. The plant life that abounds in their modernly appointed office can make one forget how clinically sanitary the actual treatments are. Nail technicians, for example, always use disposable liners during pedicures to prevent the spread of bacteria and temporary tattoos.
We are a chic salon with a vintage undertone. Located in the beautiful Sea to Sky Corridor. All our staff have the creative edge needed in this ever changing industry. We all love what we do for a living, what more could you ask for.?
