Ensconced in an intimate cottage setting with sleek leather seating and stylish décor, The Hampton Salon & Spa enhances extremities with soothing pedicures and durable Shellac manicures. Before commencing the digit-doting session, a nail technician carefully ousts any acrylic, gel, or military aircraft paint clinging to nails, using gentle removal techniques and shunning the use of nail-defacing drills. After refining cuticles and artfully sculpting each mitt-tip with a brand-new nail file, a mani maestro paints nails with a choice of Shellac shades, beginning and ending with a durable base and top coat. A quick stint under a UV lamp dries the nail adornment almost instantly, allowing hands to fish for car keys or slip into a favorite pair of chain-mail gloves without fear of chips or smudges for up to 14 days. Patiently waiting lower appendages get their turn with a soothing pedicure soak as back muscles are melted with a spa chair's automatic massage. Pristine nail files and callus-removal pads, previously untouched by skin cells, take to nails and rough patches to forge smooth feet before crowning the experience with an eye-catching shade of polish.
