These days you can find a nail salon on every corner, but you aren’t likely to find many like SPAtaneity Natural Nail Salon in Fort Worth. Launching with mobile services in 2005, then opening a bright, beautiful brick and mortar loaction in 2011, SPAtaneity is rewriting the book on the nail salon experience through a safe, clinical approach to pampering.
“Unlike traditional nail salons, SPAtaneity provides waterless manicures and pedicures,” said SPAtaneity founder and medical nail technician Missy Malone. “Our single use/disposable mani/pedi process greatly reduces the possibility of cross-contamination, which in return greatly reduces the use of water.”
Upon arrival, new clients complete an intake-form, much like a new patient would at a doctor’s office. In fact, Malone has completed a podiatrist-designed medical nail technician course and internship to better serve her clients. There is no-one-size fits all manicure or pedicure at SPAtaneity, and the in-take form gives technicians insight into how to best meet a client’s need. For example, the salon offers various top and base coats for clients with peeling, dry or brittle nails. SPAtaneity features polishes and products by Jessica and Zoya, a popular vegan nail polish line.
In addition to these specialized services, Malone has developed relationships with health care providers in DFW, offering bedside services to at-risk patients. Often these clients require the most personalized care, to ensure nail services do not conflict with their medical treatments or chemotherapy.
“SPAtaneity has become a safe haven for those living with chronic health issues such as cancer, diabetes and other immuno-suppressed conditions,” said Malone. “Services will be modified to meet the needs of the client. For example, we recommend cancer patients forgo wearing nail enhancements such as acrylic nails, as there are several changes the nails and skin go through while a patient is undergoing chemotherapy or radiation.”
Malone’s goal is simple: “If we can provide a patient with a sense of normalcy and perhaps restore their sense of femininity while they are dealing with cancer, then mission accomplished.”
The salon also features an esthetician and lash extension technician. SPAtaneity Natural Nail Salon in located at 618 S. Jennings Avenue in Fort Worth’s Southside and is open Tuesday through Saturday. Appointments are recommended, and may be booked on the salon’s website.
