Galaxy Nail & Spa Co-owners John Hiep Dinh, right‚ and Helen Huyen Nguyen have been busy during the state mandated shutdown of all salons due to the pandemic. They’ve enhanced safety in their business at 751 Trinity Dr., in Smith’s Marketplace shopping center by installing an elaborate exhaust system to pull air from around each workstation. They’ve also added plastic dividers and a misting system, which releases a fine mist of water into the air to aid in removing dust and particles. Galaxy Nail & Spa is open Tuesday through Sunday. Services include royal facials, acne treatment/therapy, waxing, foot massage, body massage, gel nails, acrylic nails and regular manicures and pedicures. For information, call 505.412.5250.
