Guests emerge from the serene, sense-soothing salon with velvety hands and hooves, ready to cartwheel all the way home.
If it weren’t for mani-pedis, there’d be practically no reason to wear sandals or fingerless gloves.

Reds, yellows, purples, and every color in between. Some are glittery, others metallic. Some have names such as Berry Kiss and Midnight Hour, while others are simply called Crimson.
