At Lux-Spa Downtown, skilled and knowledgable estheticians pamper hands and feet with indulgent yet quick mani-pedi treatments. Mini manicures place patrons at a long communal table, where aestheticians file, buff, and polish nails. The spa’s staff champion the dry manicure method, steering guests clear of hand soaks that can weaken nails and cause polish to prematurely chip. During mini pedicure treatments, patrons relax in individual custom-made cushioned sofa chairs as their feet recover from arduous summer sand strolls and tickling fights with fiddler crabs. Peruse more than 300 lacquer hues, ensuring nails shine bright enough to temporarily blind companions. Sip a complimentary cup of tea as skilled estheticians spend time pushing back cuticles, utilizing a scrub, and shaping and buffing nails, before applying polish to silken levels of smoothness.
Lux-Spa distinguishes itself from traditional salons with its unique approach to nailcare. During waterless manicures, technicians avoid soaking their clients’ hands, which they claim can weaken nails and cause polish to chip away earlier and more often. They also incorporate cocoa extracts, rosemary-mint scrubs, and tea-tree oils into manicures and pedicures in an effort to nourish skin and relax clients. Technicians paint nails using selections from the 300 available polishes, which helps clients match their fingernails to their favourite Skittle flavours. Waxing treatments employ imported, eco-friendly Rica waxes from Sicily, which are made up of natural ingredients and efficiently uproot unwanted follicles from a range of skin types.
