While technicians cloak fingernails with Shellac polish, Dynasty Salon’s crimson-walled interior sparkles from the photons shot out by an extravagant crystal chandelier. Designed to jazz up nails with unblemished color for up to 14 chip-free days, Shellac manicures take about 30–40 minutes to crescendo to their denouement. A technician paints each digit with a special formula and cures it with a special UV lamp. A friendly atmosphere pampers guests from the inside out, like when aliens benevolently invade from Earth’s core instead of outer space.
Inside Dynasty Salon, an elegant chandelier slings glistening beams of light off large, rectangular mirrors, which start at the floor and stretch better than halfway toward the ceiling. Next to those mirrors, black-and-white portraits of starlets hang from cherry-red walls, and work stations sit packed with numerous beauty products and tools. This is where the Dynasty Salon team goes to work, rejuvenating the appearances of its clients with an arsenal of services that includes haircuts, colors, and eyebrow maintenance. They spruce up nails, too, with mani-pedis and shellac nail polishes.
