I had my first professional manicure today and I loved it! From the moment I walked into the Plaza Salon and Spa, I felt welcomed and respected. I didn't know how wonderful a professional manicure could be. It's a lot more than just putting on new polish. It was a whole experience that left me with soft, happy hands and a warm heart.
My nail tech, Alex, has been at the Plaza for nine years. She loves working with people and she loves meeting new clients. She completely spoiled me. We started with a heated paraffin wax soak for my hands. Oh, it felt so good on my arthritis! While my hands were in the paraffin, I sat back and let the massage chair work its magic. I must have had a big grin on my face because everyone said I looked happy. I was so relaxed I almost fell asleep.
Alex explained what she was doing and why with each step of the manicure. I learned a lot about nail care and I appreciated the information. Alex told me that I have good strong nails. That was nice to hear. She explained what I can do to take good care of my cuticles and how to keep the skin on my fingers from cracking. I was also happy to hear that the natural look is in. I chose a neutral pink polish. Overall, Alex took her time and was helpful and attentive. I enjoyed her calm approach.
The Plaza's atmosphere was pleasant and relaxing with soft music and a pretty environment. The Plaza Salon and Spa was easy to find, they had plenty of dedicated parking, and the staff was wonderful and caring. I can't wait to go back for a pedicure!
