If it’s true luxury you’re looking for, few spas pile on the extras quite like this Phoenix nail salon. You’ll begin your journey by relaxing with fruit-infused water and hot tea in the ultra-comfy waiting room, while a glass of champagne awaits you during your actual mani-pedi service. After each finger and toe is perfectly polished, you can opt to relax in the adults-only pool or head outside to unwind on a patio overlooking the hotel’s stunning golf course (or do both activities, if your schedule allows). Either way, the staff will be sure to keep your water glass or mug of hot tea filled for the duration of your stay.
Be honest: when you get a manicure and pedicure, do you always choose the same polish color for your fingers and toes? And if you answered ‘yes’, did you choose to match because you really wanted to, or because you thought you’d be breaking the rules if you didn’t?
In a recent poll, we asked some of our social media followers whether they thought your manicure need always match your pedicure. And we got some very mixed results! Here’s how the numbers broke down:
Short answer: no, your fingers and toes do not have to match. Mix those colors however you like. Just be aware that you might get some side-eye from about 20 percent of the population.
If other nail services have left your nails chipped, brittle, or weak, head to this Phoenix nail salon as quickly as possible and ask for a paper wrap manicure. The technicians use an all-natural paper-wrap to help reinforce the nail during the manicure, protecting them from further damage, and actually helping the manicure to last longer. Here’s what some of our customers had to say about their experience with the paper-wrap manicure:
“Jennifer gave me a paper wrapped manicure and I couldn't believe how quickly my nails had improved. She explained all the reasons why my nails had developed the various issues I had like: my nails were very think and weak; they peeled; cracked and I just couldn't get them to grow because of all the issues mentioned. I do not use any chemical processes for my nails any more” - Pshe 1228
“Interesting experience. I have never had my nails paper wrapped before. They held up quite well during the week after. I am quite rough on my nails and they didn't start to chip until the 7th day.” - Andrea F.
“Jennifer is a delight and with many years experience, you will enjoy the unique manicure. She spends a great deal of time with you so don't expect to rush through this service. My hands felt amazing afterwards.” - Robert E.
Forget cucumber water and sliced fruit—at R Salon, you’re much more likely to encounter Red Vines and cookies on the complimentary snack table that first greets you in the lobby. That’s just one way this trendy, urban salon sets itself apart, and that spirit of indulgence also extends to the pedicure chair. How so? Start by choosing either a chocolate or citrus indulgence manicure, and techs will infuse both your foot spa and the lotion they use with the scent of your choice. Then, just sit back and enjoy a drink (or some Red Vines, of course) paired with one of the most pampering pedicures you’ve ever had.
Gel manicures are already pretty astounding, delivering results that last up to twice as long as traditional polish jobs. But if the reviews from our customers are to be believed, the gel manicures doled out by Jessica Jacobs at J Anthony Salon and Spa are nothing short of miraculous. Here’s what some of them had to say about their experience:
“I'm so happy right now!! Years ago I had an accident and the nail on my right middle finger is small and weak and crooked and doesn't look very nice. I just got my nails done before my vacation and you can't even tell my middle finger is all screwed up. Jessica is amazing!! She used a hard gel to shape it and now it looks just like the rest of my nails!” - Ashleigh F.
“Jessica is awesome! She's very meticulous and patient. She wants to make sure that you're really happy with the results. My nails always look perfect and my gel mani lasts for weeks!” - Megan B.
“Jessica is very nice and does an amazing job with gels! Longest time I’ve had to go between changes, i will definitely be coming back :)” = Angela G.
