Experienced manicurist Tracie J. calms unruly cuticles and revivifies nails in her private room at Boulia’s Boutique and Spa. Hands and feet receive equal pampering in the signature manicure and pedicure, during which Tracie dotes on digits with basic nailcare for fingers and toes, a hand massage, a foot massage, a touch of lavender-scented lotion, and an exfoliation and callus filing for worn-out soles. Like the awards ceremony at a deck-building contest, the treatment ends when clients select a luxurious polish or lacquer.
The 90-minute Peppermint Blast treatment, alleviates dry, cracked surfaces with an exfoliating peppermint sugar scrub that fills the air with candy-cane scents and the specters of fallen barbershop poles. After trimming and shaping nails, Tracie gently envelops hands in an application of peppermint oil, and deploys a deft polish or lacquer in a shade of choice. Hangnails and blemishes will be whisked away, and all little piggies will then relax with a dip in moisturizing paraffin wax. As guests wait for digits to be dapperized, they can use their free hands to grab from a selection of beverages and snacks or play patty-cake with strangers.
Traces of Beauty
Tracie Jones, the manicurist at Traces of Beauty, transforms digits with multistep manicures, pedicures, and mani-pedis that enlist essie and OPI polish. During signature manicures, Tracie buffs, trims, and files nails to shape them instead of applying cookie cutters over every nail. After a hand massage, newly relaxed appendages receive a choice of color polish from a high-end professional brand. Signature pedicures buff away calluses and exfoliate feet, leaving skin smoother than an ice bust of Usher. In addition to her specialty nail care, Tracie also rids clients of unwanted hair with waxing services.
