Manicurist, aesthetician, and Polish Nail Studio owner Tondelia Boren draws on more than a decade of beautifying experience?and not a little artistic talent. She adorns fingertips with precisely recreated national flags, frisky leopard spots, intricate abstract designs, and even three-dimensional studs. Meanwhile, feet are treated to pedicures enhanced with refreshing soaks, cuticle trims, or a mint mask to make the inside of clients' shoes smell delicious.
Of course, at a good nail boutique, safety is as important as beauty. Each new client at Polish gets a personal nail-implement kit to prevent the spread of bacteria, and any other tools that make contact with customers are carefully sterilized after each use.
