Best Nail Salon
The Nail Lounge
Placing a high priority on cleanliness and safety, The Nail Lounge surpasses the state’s requirements for nail salons, according to its website. It is the salon’s standard protocol to clean, disinfect and sterilize all stainless steel tools in a heat-sterilization unit. Plus, the nail technicians only use brand-new files and buffers for each manicure and pedicure. Did we mention, it smells delightful in there?
