The health-conscious nail lounge prides themselves on being obsessed with health and safety. You won’t find the typical Whirlpool Chair at this salon—due to their history of harboring bacteria, owner Lisa McElhone opted to install custom-built pedicure benches with pipe-less foot baths instead. In addition to classic mani/pedi’s, their service menu includes a Keratin anti-aging treatment to soften your cuticles. We suggest upgrading service with the Ooh La La treatment on your next visit. After a mineral detoxifying mask and extended moisturizing soothing massage, your tired hands will thank you for the extra love. 38 N. 3rd St., 215-987-3656 and 2051 Walnut St., 267-758-2385
