When their hands and feet are in need of pampering and polish, customers make their way to Rex Day Spa and bask in the serenity of the spa while nail technicians tend to all 10 fingers and each little piggy with a range of manicure, pedicure and enhancement options. But one of the biggest draws to Rex Day Spa, ironically, is how infrequently customers have to stop by.

When their hands and feet are in need of pampering and polish, customers make their way to Rex Day Spa and bask in the serenity of the spa while nail technicians tend to all 10 fingers and each little piggy with a range of manicure, pedicure and enhancement options. But one of the biggest draws to Rex Day Spa, ironically, is how infrequently customers have to stop by.

Salon Manager Helen Nguyen says the gel manicure – the most popular service her spa offers – lasts for weeks. It dries completely in seconds, resists chipping, and comes in nearly 50 designer shades by vaunted lacquer-maker OPI. And at $25, Nguyen says it’s the cheapest of such manicures in the area. But customers don’t sacrifice know-how for the discount: Nguyen says all on her staff have more than six years of nail-care experience, and are licensed manicurists, pedicurists, and estheticians.
