A lot has changed in the nail industry since the days of flaky polish and gas-powered clippers. That's why expert tech Marilyn Harrison vows to always be on the fringe of the latest trends in professional nailcare. In the comfort of her private Nailz by Mare suite, she can outfit claws with a simple coat of polish, or lavish a full spa package upon guests with a mani-pedi, brow waxing, and an invigorating facial treatment.
The licensed nail technicians at Elegant Image Nail Care Studio have pampered fingers and toes for nearly two decades. With an arsenal of cutting-edge services at their disposal, staffers gussy up digits with manicures, pedicures, polishing, and paraffin-wax treatments. They also sport the steady hands necessary to adorn nails with special artwork, such as tiny shooting stars or written reminders for where each little piggy is supposed to go.
At Essentially You, 100% natural bath and body products beckon customers with their aromatic scents and vitamin-rich formulas. Skincare products such as medowfoam oil moisturizer and 100% pure rosehip oil help moisturize the skin and diminish wrinkles, while the inventory of botanical butters, scrubs, and oils blooms with ylang-ylang, passion fruit, and lavender infusions. Clients who can't wait to get home can cozy up in the mini-spa for a facial or massage, which both incorporate many of the boutique's all-natural products. Essentially You also hosts eyelash, facial, and pamper parties where luxury-aficionados convene, revel in age-defying treatments, and play "pin the blemish on the donkey."
The 21st Century Nails staff has been pampering digits for more than a decade, transforming blank keratin sheets into shiny tips with a variety of polish hues. In addition to regular polish, the staff utilizes Shellac, Gelish, and OPI gel nail polish designed to last up to three weeks. A UV LED lamp dries nails in 30 seconds, allowing patrons to more quickly test out the Shellac’s chip protection by challenging the nearest prizefighter to a game of patty cake.
Carla D. Miller, DMD and CDM Dental’s team of specialists craft beautiful, healthy smiles with advanced technologies and gentle techniques. The office's two assistants attended the same certification program, building a strong bond and knowledge base that they extend to each patient who walks into the office or enters their exclusive treehouse. With the help of her dental specialists, Dr. Miller administers preventative treatments such as dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays to keep teeth healthy inside and out. Cosmetic and restoration procedures, which include whitening, dental implants, and crowns, brighten and repair smiles, allowing teeth to spend less time applying makeup every morning. Dr. Miller routes out gum problems with periodontal care, and treats TMJ, wisdom teeth, and sleep apnea with oral and maxillofacial surgery procedures.
With 25 years’ experience finishing nails and making her own products, owner Roza takes a natural approach to nail treatments. Shellac's combined base coat and topcoat establish a symbiotic relationship with UV light, curing without the need for drying. With about 12 shades to choose from, clients get their digit medallions coated with a thin protective layer whose resilient finish can be expected to last two to three weeks. Unlike other dapper hand décor, this Shellac application involves no buffing, leaving patrons with no damage to nails and the ability to finger-pick banjos in stunning style.
