(Portland, OR) May 25, 2010. Attention frequent flyers- announcing yet another reason to arrive early for your flight out of Portland! The relaxing Dragontree Day Spa has now added men’s and women’s nail treatments to their menu. Choosing to forgo the typical chemical laden and smelly nail polish of old, the spa is using Minx nails, a glamorous product that lets customers remain chemical free while extending fashion to their fingertips. The nail wraps are cut to the shape of the nail, put on with heat, and last as long as a typical manicure- 5 to 7 days. Or let your bags linger on the baggage return belt and treat yourself to some pampering while the other passengers fight it out.
The Dragontree has an established history of dedication to Portland's values of ecological consciousness and sustainability practices. "While searching for an alternative to nail polishes with noxious fumes, we found Minx and were impressed with product and the results,” explains Dragontree founder Briana Borten. “It's something fun and different while also being a better alternative for our clients health and the preservation of the earth.”
Minx nails continue to make news around the globe, including spotted on Kim Cattrall in the new Sex and the City movie. Kim wore “Golden Lightning” Minx in the movie, and Scarlett Johansson favored “Black and White Houndstooth” Minx in a cover story for Glamour magazines’ November 2009 issue. The Dragontree Spa is excited to bring the same high profile fashion to Portland airport.
The spa is conveniently located on Concourse C between gate C-10 and C-12 and functions as a beautiful, soothing and private refuge with an extensive menu to accommodate all travelers’ needs and schedules. There are private rooms for a variety of treatments, including a 30-minute slumber. Customers are embracing the long awaited arrival of nail services, filling the spa’s treatment room for last minute nail applications before a wedding, vacation or business trip. They especially like the fact that there’s no drying time needed and no smelly chemicals to share with other passengers during the flight.
Appointments are primarily on a walk-in basis but reservations are also happily accepted. For more information please visit the spa’s airport location website at www.thedragontreepdx.com or call 503.331.1131.
