Offering expert handiwork that outfits nails with head-turning dazzle, Extremedys Hand & Foot Spa has been featured in magazines such as Vogue, Gloss, and Confidential. For 45 minutes to an hour, a savvy nail stylist grooms cuticles to prepare toes for a nontoxic, odorless application of Minx nails. Available in a plethora of colors, designs, and astrological signs, the solid nail coating is sealed with heat and necessitates no drying time. Newfound nail sheen can last up to four weeks, or long enough to showcase them during sidewalk struts and games of double Dutch played on a bed of hot coals.

Situated northwest of downtown Los Angeles and adjacent to Beverly Hills, West Hollywood has so many famous landmarks and attractions it almost seems unreal. And plenty of what goes on here is unreal: you can stroll by CBS studios, movie sets, and streets that have been used as filming locations for the silver screen over and over again. Just a short walk away from Palihotel are the flickering lights of the Sunset Strip and the designer shops of Rodeo Drive.Step past the front doors of Palihotel, and you're already smack dab in the middle of the Melrose shopping district, which is lined with comedy clubs, funky clothing boutiques, vintage stores, and kitschy themed restaurants. Melrose is a nice change of pace from the traffic and sprawl of the city as a whole; it's a relaxed area designed for pedestrians where wildly painted buildings compete for tourists' attention.
