THE SALON OWNER: Sandra Plasencia Casanova

Inspired by the Mojito — a classic Cuban cocktail that includes mint leaves, lime juice, sugar, white rum, and club soda — this service features natural ingredients that lift the spirit and energize the senses. The pedicure starts with a freshly made Mojito to set the mood.

STEPS:

  • Apply a mint mask — using Creative Nail Design’s mint mask as a base, add your own fresh crushed mint leaves.
  • Massage legs and feet with lime lotion.
