The lowdown: Yes, you can sail the seven seas but now you can “nail” them thanks to Seven Seas salon and manicure bar. Salon Director Kimberly Acker says, “We’re a full-service Aveda Concept Salon with the first and only Dashing Diva Nail Bar in Florida. Time-strapped clients will appreciate convenient appointment hours from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays. Seven Seas will also accommodate appointments before and after regular business hours if scheduled in advance.”

The ‘hood: Nestled inside The Newport Beachside Hotel & Resort in Sunny Isles Beach, Seven Seas is nearby SoFla’s airports, SoBe’s night life, Bal Harbour’s snazzy shops and Aventura Mall. “We also provide access t0 our private beach for local guests,” Acker says.

The vibe: Seven Seas is sleek in every sense of the word. White, lavender and lime hues with modern treatments and fixtures create a contemporary ambience. Sparkling crystal walls and white leather upholstery ooze a hip feel. Acker adds, “The focal point is the state-of-the-art Dashing Divas nail bar — sure to be a hot spot for companies, groups of friends and brides-to-be looking to host parties over a bottle of wine. An assortment of specialty cocktails and food can also be ordered from the hotel’s Kitchen 305 menu and guests can even match their nail colors to their martinis.”
