Spa Nijoli & Salon 


PHOTOGRAPH by Sarah Jordan McCaffery


Whether you’re looking for a long-lasting gel manicure, creative nail art, or seriously pampered feet, the bright, airy, and relaxing nail room at spa nijoli & salon delivers a high-quality manicure and pedicure in a spa-like atmosphere. The nijoli spa manicure is an hour-long indulgence, with an exfoliating scrub, hand massage, and paraffin treatment that will leave your hands looking and feeling soft and gorgeous. Don’t have an hour to spare? Try other treatments, like the signature nijoli manicure, express manicure, or a quick shape, buff, and polish. And lest your feet feel left out, try a pedicure—like the fabulous “facial” pedicure—in one of the salon’s new massage chairs.
