Every turn of the year is a time for new beginnings and transformations: reason why a lot of us get a haircut, try on a new hair color, or revamp our wardrobe in time for the season. Now, if you don’t want anything drastic, but still want to look fabulous as you usher in 2016, then chic nails are the way to go with C&C Nail Salon.
Run by sisters Cheenee & Cookie Gonzalez (two Cs, hence the salon’s name), C&C Nail Salon is the perfect spot to treat your hands, feet, and nails this season (because we ladies want to take hold of our lives this year with clean, polished nails no less!).
Once you enter this lair of comfort, C&C Nail Salon greets you with its stylish interiors done in tasteful combos of white and grey and accented with purple. Plush seats make you feel like a true queen as you sit and get pampered by the caring and skilled staff.
According to Cookie Gonzalez, C&C Nail Salon wants to make experience the highlight for every customer who visits. “We want our clients to feel that we value them, that they are looked after and truly pampered everytime they come here — so everything we use from the nail file, nail polish, and even the scent for the foot scrub and lotion are well considered and cared for.”
At C&C Nail Salon, all nail cleaning implements are sterilized for every customer. Uniquely, their foot file is a sticker so that every customer is assured that his or her foot file is his or hers alone. C&C Nail Salon customers are also entitled to their own nail file and buffer which they can opt to bring home or ask the nail salon for safekeeping for their next visit.
Unlike the rest of the typical nail salons which just use one standard scent for their scrub and lotion, C&C Nail Salon gives customers the freedom to choose which one goes best for their personality or mood.
“We have three signature scents: Sweet, Sassy, and Serene. Sweet is infused with vanilla and is a favorite among the young ones while Sassy is more on the fruity side and is preferred by more adventurous clients. Serene is our bestseller, because it’s the most relaxing of the three,” Gonzalez shares.
The brand and color variety of nail polish at C&C is also every nail polish addict’s dream as it has all the leading imported brands in its selection: Sally Hansen, Orly, Revlon, Maybelline, TruGel, Gelish, and Morgan Taylor.
We gave their service a try and it was excellent as expected. The staff is attentive and treats customers’ nails with the utmost care. The foot scrub was thorough, too. Nothing of those foot scrubs that are poorly done and killer manicurists who murder your nails with heavy hands — here, everything is really about giving service fit for queens.
The best thing about the experience at C&C Nail Salon is that they stay true to their promise of relaxation. “When customers come in, our goal is for them to be relaxed enough to take a nap because that’s when we know that we’ve done a good job of making them comfortable and really at home,” Gonzalez adds.
And we sure did fall asleep at C&C Nail Salon. Everything here — from the ambience, staff, and service — comes together for a truly remarkable nail pampering experience. So, if you want to give yourself much-needed pampering now and for the rest of the year, then head on to C&C Nail Salon for the ultimate treat.
