We visited Bluegrass Day Spa, beautifully designed, near Alpharetta. Launched by Nhi Huynh nearly ten years ago, I found an expansive service menu, ranging from manicures and pedicures, boutique facials, to-die-for massages, and exclusive body treatments. Huynh provides an interview to get the nitty gritty about the skin’s sensitivity, condition, cleansing regiment, and additional challenges. The salon’s signature SNS Manicure & Pedicure, Bluegrass Signature Facial, and Deep Tissue Massage was a combination that couldn’t have been more ideal. The spa at Bluegrass is separate from the main manicure and pedicure rooms. This detail, while subtle, provided a more relaxed experience. The aesthetician provided a 110-minute facial with moisture infusing essential oils, gentle exfoliate, and deep tissue massage.  The SNS manicure, which is a thinner and more light weight version of the gel nail does not require UV light, and can be built out like pink and white powder. Additionally, the SNS manicure does not contain Formaldehyde, Toluene, or DPB.
