Located in Carolina Park, across the street from Costco, this destination of relaxation is an obvious place to recharge and take care of number one. Upon entering this luxe establishment, clients are greeted with a huge welcome sign, with colorful flowers lining the counter, beckoning new customers. Once inside, patrons enjoy a sense of peacefulness in the atmosphere. “The devil is in the details,” is an expression taken all too seriously at Pulse Nails & Spa. The owner, Anna Duong, a Vietnam native, has made it her mission to create an experience for clients, from the moment they step into her impeccable store, to the moment they leave. The décor demands peacefulness and tranquility, from the waterfall display and flowers to the insanely relaxing, cutting-edge massage chairs. This shop has an open floor layout with a lot of natural light and windows. Every station is neat and clean, as if you’re at a five-star getaway. From the greenery and flowers to the instrumental music playing in the background, Pulse Nails & Spa will help you to relax and enjoy the magnificently manicured ambiance. The key to a great, successful business is creating an experience for the clients. “I’ve been in business for a year,” Duong said. “I have only been in the United States for about seven years. When I came to Mount Pleasant, it reminded me of home, being so close to the beach.” Duong’s tenacity is unmeasurable. “Opening this shop, I was super focused on creating a place where people can enjoy. I’m always cleaning the shop. From 7 a.m. to midnight, I am here working hard for my customers to enjoy the establishment.” The shop is beyond spotless, it’s immaculate. You could literally eat off the floor, but I don’t recommend it. The attention to every little detail is inspiring. Duong has created a princess corner where girls can enjoy manicures and pedicures as royalty, rolling out a kid’s red carpet by treating them to ice cream during their session. Her client base serves everyone. Both men and women enjoy treatments at Pulse Nails & Spa. Duong accepts walk-ins and appointments. Pulse Nails & Spa offers beverages, including a selection of wines while at your appointment. During the winter, hot chocolate and tea are on the menu. Even the multitude of candy dishes, spread throughout the shop, speak to Duong’s attention to the entire sensorial experience for her clients. “I think about what my customers want,” Duong added. “As an owner, you must put your customers first. I want them to feel welcome. I want them to enjoy themselves. I want them to return and maybe bring a friend next time. This entire shop is for my customers to experience relaxation on another level.” With numerous treatments from nails and waxing services, specialty manicure and pedicure treatments, along with so many additional personal wellness treatments, visit Pulse Nails & Spa today.
