As anyone who's gotten a mani-pedi with their girlfriends knows, it's hardly just about getting your nails done. It's a chance to catch up, to laugh, to sip champagne—in other words, it's a chance to bond. And gals all over Vegas are lining up to get in some girl time at bond., thanks to a roster of talented artists.
Their specialty is keeping up with the latest trends in nail art. Not surprisingly, then, bond.'s Instagram feed is a seemingly never-ending scroll of intricate designs in which red polish seamlessly fades into black, lace patterns sparkle with mini crystals, and hand-painted snowflakes shimmer like the real thing. They also experiment with different shapes, ranging from subtly rounded to square to dramatic points, which come in handy when you need a skeleton key.
Jeney, owner of Jeney's Nails, beautifies her clients with a range of mani-pedi services. Of course, she takes care of the basics, but she specializes in acrylics, gel polish, nail art, and 3-D nail art. She transforms nails into chip-resistant works of art with her gel nail art, embellishing nails with wild animal print, gold chevron patterns, or shimmering glitter.
Beyond tapping into her creative abilities, she focuses on providing good customer service. If catastrophe should strike and a customer's nail chips or pops off, she'll fix it at no charge. And to keep folks coming back for more, she offers a loyalty-card program.
Nohea Nails prides itself on staying on top of the latest trends in nailcare. In addition to using reputable brands such as Chanel, Dior, and Buly 1803 from Paris, that means decorating digits with 3-D designs, ombre hues, gemstones, and detailed art. They also promote total relaxation with treatments including Cuccio Naturalé hydrating thermal wraps, anti-aging facials, and skin-polishing mango peels.
Sandra Lynn of Sandra Lynn's Snips & Tips focuses on the nails as well as the hands and feet attached to them. The nail technician offers numerous treatments that involve cleansing, grooming, and polishing nails, as well as long-lasting gel mani-pedis.
The Trump International Hotel Las Vegas is only a stone’s throw from the strip and considering its location, it’s hard to believe how sedate and soothing The Trump can be. The level of service and sumptuousness should not surprise, and the rooms are truly among the most elegant and amenity-rich in the city. The pool deck offers private cabanas and daybeds to while away hours, while the adjacent spa offers unmatched restorative treatments. The lobby bar is an excellent spot for a serious meeting, and should the shopping bug bite, Fashion Show Mall's impressive array of names – including Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Macy's and Forever 21 – live directly across from the front entrance. Strip resorts including Wynn/Encore and Venetian/Palazzo are within reasonable walking distance.
Outside, fountains pulse, bright lights shine, and sidewalks remain crowded well into the night. But inside the Spa and Salon at the Golden Nugget, classical decor and full-body spa services keep the outside world at bay. The sunny atrium, ringed with columns and draped white curtains, cocoons clients with an atmosphere that BestOfVegas.com says, "evokes class, elegance, and luxury." Within the spa, aestheticians perform massages or body treatments with organic royal honey or seaweed that go hand-in-hand with salon services to craft a knockout nighttime look. Beyond the beautifying treatment rooms, clients can jog, run, or endlessly summersault on Cybex cardiovascular machines poised above the hotel's shark tank.
