Chana, a licensed nail technician and pedicurist, elevates dolling up fingers and toes into a kind of mission. For ladies who cannot find time to come into her salon, Chana takes her skills on the road, working her nail-beautifying magic in guests' homes or workplaces. She calms trepidatious brides by trundling her wares to wedding parties, in addition to visiting clients in hospitals, nursing homes, or retirement communities.
Meanwhile, back at Salon Nails, Chana enlists the help of products made from natural ingredients for her signature sessions. Along with cuticle trimming and nail buffing, she pampers appendages with an exfoliating scrub and warm paraffin baths. With the no-chip, no-smudge Shellac polish, she splashes nails with vivid color, and the OPI Acrylic System adds length and durability to weak nails. She also refigures eyebrows with razor shaping and enhances eye fringe with artificial lashes applied one at a time. To maintain results, customers can also purchase the natural From Me To U Essentials.
