Laka Manicure Express, with its original outposts in Israel, caters to busy women in two ways. First, with its signature treatment: technicians shape and polish the nails on fingers and toes in just 20 minutes. Second, with its location: shoppers find each Laka Manicure Express station at their mall, in the open air and not closed up in a tiny nail salon or under their hairstylist's bed. These technicians shield nails with Laka's exclusive line of polish, boasting around 130 shades, which usually need just one coat.
Within Blithe Salon, Hello Gorgeous' master nail techs Kent and Honey pay painstaking attention to safety and quality. In addition to using long-lasting OPI polishes, the duo sterilizes all metal tools with high-grade Barbicide Plus and always break out new files and buffers for each client. Their relaxing aromatherapy foot scrubs are also performed in jet-free pedicure bowls, which help stave off bacteria and keep microscopic surfers from loitering around the salon.
A design motif characterized by simple but elegant chandeliers and lemon- and lime-hued walls maintains a sunny ambiance across all three of Nail Day's Denver locations. The charming backdrop puts clients at ease as they hunker down into plush chairs and let aestheticians primp and prettify their hands and feet. To ensure optimal sanitation, Nail Day offers manicure kits that customers can take with them and bring back for each treatment, giving them their own individual file, sanding file, and orangewood stick. In addition, staffers disinfect sinks and tabletops multiple times a day with a hospital-grade germ-killing solution and clean all metal implements through autoclaving, a heat-sterilization method used at medical facilities.
Blossom Nail Salon's technicians give fingers and toes colorful flair inside a clean, comfortable studio space. As guests perch atop throne-like pedicure chairs, the staff showers attention onto feet and legs, enhancing basic pedicures with indulgent add-ons such as soothing hot stones, massages, and skin-softening paraffin wax. Fingers find similar refinement during hot oil or spa manicures, and may opt for durable gel or Shellac polish, which can withstand chips for far longer than traditional nail polish or false nails carved from robins' eggs. In addition to artful nail enhancements, Blossom Nail Salon's repertoire also includes massage and waxing services for both face and body.
At Diamonds & Pearls Nail Studio, master technician and 20-year industry veteran Liana indulges digits with FDA-approved products and paramount attention to detail.

Raum Nail & Spa's owner, Tae, encourages guests to put away their phones and simply enjoy the experience while they're at her nail spa. With Raum's soothing cups of tea, reclining manicure chairs, and beautiful flowering trees, that's not hard to do.
The various spa pedicures here are particularly relaxing with their scented scrubs, applications of melted chocolate and hot stones, and skin-softening milk baths. And after every manicure or pedicure, the technicians massage the client's shoulders while their nails dry.
Though they're advised to eschew technological distractions during treatments, patrons waiting for their appointments can take advantage of the salon's WiFi to check emails or research illnesses they can pretend they have when work calls looking for them.
