At Avida Salon & Spa and Prima Donna Hair Salon & Spa, nail technicians have honed their craft while staying hip to advances in the field, such as CND’s Shellac polish. Shellac lacquer resists chips and dips into freshly iced cakes for up to two weeks, and its hypoallergenic formula eschews three chemicals common in conventional polish, including formaldehyde. After filing nails and trimming overgrown cuticles, technicians glaze nails in the long-lasting color of their choice, which is then cured to a mirror-like finish under the shine-sealing rays of a UV lamp. The transformation takes roughly 30–45 minutes and leaves digits sheathed in colorful cases, their natural beauty pristinely preserved until kissed by a prince’s acetone-soaked cotton ball.
To reach a state of deep relaxation, clients can follow the manicure with a soothing Swedish massage and slowly unwind overwrought muscles across a relaxing half-hour. Afterward, soothed bodies may return to their normal lives and use their newfound clearheadedness and rubberized being to achieve higher productivity, contagiously relax those around them, or finally beat Galaga.
