A line of comfy black-leather pedicure thrones stand against the wall of Edelweiss's main room, letting visitors to sit back kick back as technicians pamper their feet with massages and cuticle treatments. Blonde woods, floral motifs on the cream-colored walls, and a huge flatscreen decorate the new nail salon, where staff are hard at work on Cuccio organic manicures and soothing spa-style pedicures. European and no-chip polish treatments keep keratin shields looking shiny for weeks, while cleansing foot baths make toes feel as soft and fresh as the day they burst forth from their tiny cocoons.
A bubbling bath soothes feet as a precursor to the pedicures at Spa Nail City. Clients recline in plush, clay-colored seats, plunging their feet into warm water before a technician grooms their toes.

They add a splash of color with essie traditional or gel polish?or CND Shellac polish, which resists chips so clients don't have to protect their manicures with gloves made from PVC.
