Bar offers bit of luxury

Pamper yourself, or better yet, pay it forward with a gift certificate to The Nail Bar in Greenwood.

Arlene Randle provides a soothing foot massage at The Nail Bar in Greenwood.

Arlene Randle and The Nail Bar – one of Greenwoods’ newest businesses are proud to offer the services of a certified nail technician to the West Boundary. The salon opened on the 10th of May providing local luxury at affordable prices.

Clients are pampered with great service in a relaxing setting. The newly renovated space is open and well lit, at the same time offering a calming sense of peace and privacy.

It is a perfect venue for an hour away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Arlene earned her certification as a nail technician from OCI College in Penticton. She has the training to provide both manicures and pedicures.

She now offers waxing as well – having gone back for additional training since the shop opened last month.

Her salon offers the en Vogue gel Nail line of products  – a clear building gel that adds strength and durability to your enhancement.

“I’ve been wanting to do this for a while,” admits Arlene. “People used to think it is only rich people who deserve the luxury of pampering themselves. Now you see everybody getting pedicures. It’s maintenance, right? Like doing you hair really.”

It’s not just for women either she insists. “Men are doing it because they are on their feet a lot at work. They may not look after their feet and a pedicure is a great way to give them relief from callouses.”

Her hours are from 1 to 6 Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday; Monday and Friday from 9 to 5 and Saturdays from 10 to 2. But she is flexible. If someone wants to call and make an appointment a half hour later than her normal shop hours she will accommodate him or her.

Her prices are very reasonable – with services ranging from a quick nail maintenance session to a full spa manicure or pedicure.

Arlene has lived in the Boundary for 20 years and many know her from her years of working at the Copper Eagle Cappuccino and Bakery in Greenwood.

“I do want people to come and relax. I don’t want to book eight or nine people in a day and not have any time for them. I want to spend the time chatting with people and getting to know them and not rushing them out of the door because I have the next customer waiting. I want to be able to spend that quality time with them.”

Because her shop is not wheelchair accessible, Arlene is willing to do home visits as needed.

Gift certificates are available.

The Nail Bar is located at 478 Dundee Avenue in Greenwood – just up the street from Deadwood Junction. A large sign on the wooden fence at the front of the home-based business makes the location easy to find.

When you do arrive at the shop please park parallel to the highway by the front fence – as the driveway isn’t actually hers.

The best thing to do if you are going for a pedicure is just to jump right in with both feet. So call Arlene at 250-449-5029 to book your appointment today.
