Capital Nails’ experienced aestheticians primp digits in the comfort of an upscale nail salon that recently had a grand reopening under new ownership. The newly renovated space flaunts elegant light fixtures hanging between walls perforated by arched walkways. The manicure and pedicure refurbish pincers via a filing and buffing of nails, a cleaning of cuticles, and a gentle removal of lifeless skin, and both treatments finish with a choice of lustrous polish or a to-scale replication of Picasso’s Guernica on each nail. The hand massage relieves pent-up tension in overworked mitts, and a warm-towel wrap and a cleansing scrub accompany the soothing foot and leg massage. Bodies sink into the downy cushions of a relaxing massage chair during the pedicure portion of the nailcare session, and the entirety of the manicure and pedicure treatments lasts approximately one hour. Capital Nails requests that clients either make an appointment or sneak in through the vents, but it does accept walk-ins on a first-come, first-served basis.
The newly remodeled Capital Nails boasts a cozy, softly lit interior lined with six spa pedicure chairs and elegant light fixtures. Perhaps the most notable features, however, are the arched doorways, which the studio's technicians use as points of reference as they shape nails into perfect parabolas during manicures and pedicures. Once they have filed nails, trimmed cuticles, conditioned skin, the technicians brush on chip-resistant coats of Shellac, OPI, or Gelish polish that have been known to last for more than two weeks, or the equivalent of one full night of relentlessly clawing at the walls of a dungeon, followed by a hand massage. Along with nailcare, the staff offers eyelash extensions, permanent-makeup applications, and waxing services.
