What to expect at Healthy Nails

  • A thorough consultation and assessment
  • One-on-one private services
  • Highly personalized care for your specific needs
  • A comfortable, positive environment
  • Follow-up and home care plan to promote healthy nails
  • Home care products included with your first Advanced Pedicure

  • What is different about an Advanced Pedicure?

    While a 'traditional' salon pedicure aims to simply clean and beautify your feet and nails, an Advanced Pedicure goes beyond this by working to prevent troublesome toenail and skin issues that cause pain, discomfort, and even anxiety for our clients. 

    Advanced Pedicures are also recommended for individuals with pre-existing medical conditions affecting the legs, skin, and feet such as diabetes, psoriasis, cancer(s) and circulatory disease(s). 

    A specially certified Advanced Nail Technician (M-ANT) will be better equipped to care for you during your service as you may require adjusted pedicure soak temperatures and duration, different skincare products, enhanced cleaning and care of the feet and nails, and modified massage techniques.

  • Training and Certification

    Our Advanced Pedicures are only performed by a Licensed Nail Technician, holding additional certifications in:

    • Advanced Nail Technology
    • Medical Nail Technology
    • Advanced Pedicures
    • Oncology Care in the Pedicure Suite
    • LCN Barefoot Toenail Restoration
    • B/S Brace System

    We specialize in addressing foot and toenail conditions with a client-centered and compassionate approach.  The goal is to restore the health and beauty of your natural nails, improve the condition of your skin, and prevent physical discomfort and anxiety over the condition of your feet and nails.

  • What does this mean for you?

    At Healthy Nails, we can restore your confidence in the look and feel of your feet and toes by providing you with an Advanced Pedicure that can work to prevent a host of uncomfortable foot and nail conditions including:

    Whether you have a medical condition, significant nail damage or missing nails, discoloration, or difficulty maintaining your own nails, Healthy Nails by Bad Kitti Claws is here for you.

Consultation Process

Prior to your first service, we ask each new client to complete a Pedicure Consultation Form, after which we conduct a thorough consultation (virtual or in-person) to determine the appropriate service(s) and any special considerations that may affect your care. 

At every appointment, a visual and physical assessment of your feet will be conducted, as well as a discussion about your nails and skin, any medical conditions that may affect your feet and lower extremities, and any questions or concerns you may have.

A Series of Services

Most clients do require a series of Advanced Pedicures to achieve their desired results, though many clients see and feel results after their first appointment. Toenail growth is very slow, and healthy nails take time and care to develop and grow out.  Maintaining regular appointments will allow lingering problematic conditions to be addressed properly as healthy nails grow out.

Pictured here is a client after three services, where you can see the healthy nail tissue growing out after repeated cleaning and use of our at-home Advanced Pedicure Product Bundles.
