Having been to Cocok’s, Dulce, and Bella Nails a number of times, I was ready to try someplace new. I heard that a former employee of Cocok’s had opened her own place closer to Camp Foster, which was perfect for me! So I went to Salon Tida for a pedicure. The service did not disappoint.
They had large comfy recliners to relax in, and blankets, too. While I enjoyed complimentary tea, I perused through the myriad design options before finally settling on one. I was treated to a full lower leg and foot massage. It was heavenly, and I dare say the best I have had on-island.
They also offer Brazilian and eyebrow waxing, although I have not tried either of these.
