NYACK, N.Y. -- Prosecco is served.
And no, you're not a restaurant or bar, but at a Nyack nail salon.
Andrea Cea, owner of Riverwaves Salon considers her business -- in operation since 1993 -- like being at a spa retreat. And yes, that means catering to customers with the utmost in service, which can mean the occasional glass of sparkling wine.
Clients are also offered tea, coffee, "yummy treats, a cozy shawl, and heating pad" if needed.
"We work hard to make Riverwaves a warm, wonderful respite," she said.
"A place where clients immediately feel welcomed and where they can relax, breathe more easily, and enjoy calming music, all while getting a customized manicure, pedicure or a shoulder, hand or foot massage."
The salon also does waxing, which was rated by clients as five-star -- if there were a salon Zagat rating, she said.
What also makes them different from other salons: "We are basically chemical free," said Cea.
Cea, a Suffern resident, also takes pride in the salon's highest standards of cleanliness and the staff’s special attention to each and every person that walks through the door, whether a longstanding client or new (walk-ins are always welcome).
She said they are very serious about proper hygiene and safety protocol. All clients, in fact, have their own individual mani/pedi kits which Riverwaves keeps on site and/or they can take home in between services.
Loyalty tags honor returning clients with incentives and rewards for their patronage. "I have been blessed with the most wonderful clientele,' she said. "I have been enriched and enhanced as a person because of them."
It's why her customers -- many of whom are long-standing -- come back with their children and grandchildren.
And that means men as well as women. Cea said much of her clientele is male.
Just in time for the holidays, Cea is offering new holiday nail polish colors. She's also offering a $125 gift certificate for $100.
Looking ahead, Cea said her campaign for January is to focus on couples. Those who book a pedicure together will receive 10 minute complimentary foot massages.
First-time clients will also find a 10 percent off coupon on her site.
