$30 for Two Shellac Manicures ($60 Value)
Nail technicians pamper fingers and hands with all the perks of a regular manicure, including a relaxing hand soak followed by cuticle and nail care. Next, a coat of durable Shellac polish swathes each fingertip to add a pop of color capable of resisting chips for up to two weeks, before a soothing, light hand and forearm massage sends appendages home stress-free.
From paraffin manicures to indulgent hot-stone pedicures, the talented techs at Designer Nails skillfully pamper appendages with a wide range of nail-enhancement services. Natural nails get a lengthening boost from synthetic tips made of gel or acrylic, or from pink and white solar nails, which refrain from yellowing in the sun and don't require batteries. Soothing whirlpool tubs and softening sea-salt scrubs give a luxurious feel to basic pedicures, and all mani-pedis can find an extra dose of durability with the addition of Shellac polish, which leaves nails shiny and chip-free for far longer than typical lacquers.
