The stress and frantic pace of everyday life can take its toll, not only on your mind but on your body as well. If it’s time to take a mini vacation from your frantic lifestyle, Bronze Bodies Tanning and Nails is just the place to do it.

The salon, located at 8-49 Finch Drive in Sarnia, offers two laydown beds and one stand-up bed, as well as custom airbrush spray tanning. There is also a wide range of esthetic services. Whether you crave the sophisticated, put-together look afforded by a manicure and pedicure done with a specialty sugar scrub, the seductive elegance of lash extensions, or the rejuvenating feel of a soothing facial, the staff at Bronze Bodies and Nails can provide the services you need.

Owner Karen Cousineau says the shop is the realization of a goal she set when she was a teenager. “I started in the business at the age of 14 and I’ve always had the desire to open my own shop,” she said. “It’s something I’ve been interested in and toying around with for about 10 years.”

Customers of Brian Joyce Cooperators Insurance office might recognize Karen as one of the office’s associate insurance advisors, but she also boasts accreditation and experience in the field of esthetics. She currently works at her salon evenings and weekends, and she has enlisted a staff of experienced estheticians and administrative personnel, including: Sandi Cullay, client care coordinator; Victoria Labelle, esthetician; Meagan Murphy, assistant manager/ esthetician; Alice Fields, part-time esthetician; and receptionists Jessica Cousineau and Taylor Cousineau.

One of the services that set Bronze Bodies and Nails apart from others in the area is the Million Dollar Tan spray tanning system. “We are the only business in the area to offer the Million Dollar Tan custom airbrush spray tan,” said Karen. “It’s very natural looking, never orange.” She added the Million Dollar Tanning system is completely safe, it allows the client to determine how tanned she would like to be, and it fades evenly and naturally over a period of seven to 10 days.

A private esthetic room allows facials and lash extensions to be applied in a quiet, unhurried atmosphere.

Bronze Bodies and Nails is also the place to find group packages for all ages. Bronze, Silver, and Platinum Princess Pamper Parties for girls up to age 15 offer the birthday girl and five guests (more guests at additional cost) a spa experience, from the tiara, robe and flip-flops, a mini manicure/pedicure, and goody bag, to punch, cupcakes, photos of the experience, and much more, depending on which of the three group packages she chooses. Group adult parties can also be done for birthdays, showers, Sweet 16, girls’ nights out, and other occasions. “These programs were a joint effort,” said Karen. “We brainstormed together (to create the group packages).”

Products available at Bronze Bodies and Nails include a selection of custom-made, all-natural bath bombs and sugar scrubs developed in-house, plus tanning products from Million Dollar Tan as well as Designer Skin, Australian Gold,  and Jwoww.  

“We offer exceptional client service, a clean, welcoming studio, and a relaxed, elegant atmosphere,” said Karen. “We aim to help our clients look and feel renewed and fabulous.”

The Bronze Bodies shop has been open since early winter, but a grand opening is planned for early this spring. For more information or to book an appointment, call 519-344-6444.
