The meticulous techs of Rose Nails pay close to attention to the finer details when performing their signature manicures and pedicures. Within freshly remodeled environs, they soften hands, curb cuticles, and file edges until each nails looks as sumptuous as a harvest moon. But the team's talents truly shine when they treat each digit as a canvas, showcasing their ingenuity and artistry. They can enhance French tips with blossom clusters or upgrade sparkle-infused shellac with vivid tiger stripes. To refine the rest of the body, hair-removal experts leave skin smooth with meticulous body-waxing services. Complimentary red wine or soft drinks accompany each lavish appointment.
The salon technicians at L'amour Nails draw out tension through fingers and toes with a wide range of rejuvenating services. Classic manicures, pedicures, and leg hot-stone massages send currents of relaxation coursing through the body like prize stallions wearing marshmallow horseshoes. During manicures, the technicians can adorn nails with multicolored sparkles or painted stripes using OPI Axxium gel or Orly FX Gel, whose no-chip staying power won a rave review in Allure. Both of the professional-grade lacquers can help preserve the 10 tiny artworks for up to two weeks. For a full-body effect, body waxing and eyelash extensions remove or add hair to bolster sleek looks.
