At Carol Carey Salon, master nail technician Lisa Bermudez employs Young Nails products when performing a variety of nail services amid the salon’s exposed-brick walls and suspended hair dryers that hover sweetly like bungee-jumping fairy godmothers. During traditional manicures, Lisa cleans cuticles, massages hands, and adds an elegant accent to hands with a precise nail shaping and polish application. The everyday pedicure helps relieve stress caused by daily foot usage, beginning with a soak and scrub. Toes wiggle gleefully after calluses are reduced, feet are massaged, and toenails are polished. The hydrating manicure infuses parched piano-pressers with hydration via a spa-grade paraffin mask—held against the skin with single-use gloves—and aromatherapy, which massages noses. The ultimate pedicure includes an exfoliation, a massage with nourishing shea butter, and a soak in warm paraffin wax that makes feet feel beautifully primped like boy-princes resting atop cushions of fresh fruit.
