The staff at Alter Ego warmly welcomes guests with steaming cups of coffee before dressing up their digits in chip resistant polishes and moisturizing their hands with paraffin wax treatments. Staffers kick off the 45-minute spa excursion by removing old polish before trimming and buffing the nails into perfectly round, square, or quadrilateral shapes. They'll then wrangle cuticles into place before applying Shellac nail polish, which dries immediately and endure up to an average of two weeks of daily wear without chipping. After specialists gussy up nail beds they'll dip hands into a warm, lavender-scented paraffin dip designed to restore circulation, moisture, and realism to shadow-puppet depictions of seals. Plastic baggies and fleece hand blankets trap in heat for up to 15 minutes before the tech removes the salubrious salves, yielding smoother and younger looking skin.

Customer Reviews

Loved the shellac manicure - lasted almost two weeks. Anita was very accommodating as I had trouble getting in prior to the expiration date. She did a great job on my nails and I will be going back!
