Have you ever wanted to get a pedicure or manicure but felt uncomfortable or embarrassed because of the setting and all the women at the salon? If you have felt this way, you are not alone. Allow us to introduce to you Hammer & Nails, the best hand and foot care for Men, now in Naples, Florida.
We are so glad that Michael Elliot, founder of Hammer & Nails had a bad experience one day while getting a mani/pedi at a traditional salon, which are normally catered for women. Because of him feeling like a fish out of the water he created the best man cave environment for guys to not only get a pedicure, manicure but also a hair cut, razor shave, wax and more.
I had a chance to visit this manly shop in Naples, Florida and as soon as one walks in you are amazed by the decor. Jason, the General Manager greeted me and gave me a tour. I was very impressed with the lighting, chairs, hand and feet room and bar. Also, the one thing that stood out was all of the art commissioned by the owner, which are all paintings of luxury and race cars.
My favorite part of the salon was the hand and feet room, which looks like a sports bar with all the big screen TVs. Every guest has a personal TV, remote and noise-cancelling headphones for entertainment during his visit. I love that it felt private and you are only there with other men getting the same thing done that you are in the comfort of Hammer & Nails’ oversize leather chairs and man cave vibe.
Big Daddy Aromatherapy Premium Manicure & Pedicure
A clarifying lemon and peppermint-infused Premium Manicure and Pedicure combination that includes a warm soak, callus resurfacing, sugar scrub, nail care, massage, warm paraffin, and a hot towel wrap. I confess, my feet were so dry and ashy and after I came out of there my feet are now so soft and smooth. What ever part was ashy and dry now looks like healthy skin. I would definitely get this treatment every week.
