From Our Editors
Peppermint whirlpools, rose-petal water, and essential oils are just a few of the tools used by the technicians at Viva Nails Spa during luxurious pedicure treatments. A vitamin-rich foot soak begins the 50-minute signature pedicure, enhanced by the client’s choice of scents, such as milk and honey or lavender. Then the nail tech massages the feet, wraps them in steamed towels, and dips them in paraffin wax designed to soften the skin. Once feet are groomed, relaxed, and officially relishing their new diva status, they rest on hot stones.
The staff also primps hands with the same attention to detail. During the dehydrated manicure, sugar scrubs, shea butter, pineapple essential oil, and steamed towels work to heal dry, cracked hands. Other manicures may include long-lasting shellac gel polish, fun nail designs, or french treatment on the tips.
