The overhaul moves from tips to toes when the choco-therapy pedicure begins with an indulgent French cocoa absolute bubble bath followed by a careful detailing utilizing fresh, cleaned, stainless implements.

About Bisou Nail Lounge
The technicians at Bisou Nail Lounge go above and beyond to create works of nail art using gel paint, jewels, and glitter polish. But before intricate designs of butterflies and Gary Busey on a steed are handcrafted, digits are refreshed with organic and eco-friendly products during mani-pedis. A volcanic clay mask and Dead Sea salt scrub help to purify the skin while cabernet grape extract oil and the salon's own line of organic coca butter nourish and moisturize. Harsh chemicals are also exempt from Bisou's footsoaks, enhanced with limes, rose petals, and mint leaves floating in a non-whirlpool, stainless steel bowl, and UV-gels from Bella Forma, Calgel, Bio Sculpture, or Crystal Nails provide chip-resistant polish that is acid-free. The salon's earth-friendly ways are also showcased during Nova eyelash extension services as technicians carefully use a formaldehyde-free adhesive to adhere tree-sized extensions to existing lashes.
Bisou's attention to details can also be seen in the intimate salon's décor, a country French theme complete with pale pink wall colors, a gold chandelier, and plush, floral-covered furnishings.
