Best nail salon: The Gallery
In Suisun City: 812 Kellogg St.
Hours: Open Monday through Saturday (hours vary, depending on stylists)
Earning honors in two categories in this year’s Readers’ Choice poll, The Gallery Salon & Spa, located on Suisun’s waterfront, picked up a first-time honor for best nail salon. The award was long overdue and well deserved, said Janet Kakacek, office manager at the full-service salon. “Kimmie pampers her clients,” she said in reference to Kimmie Sheets. It’s not unusual for Sheets to spend an hour or more on pedicures. Sheets works to make them comfortable by offering them food and beverages, Kakacek said. “The customers love her,” Kakacek said. “She does everything.” Sheets is known for going above and beyond the call of duty. “We are thrilled she won,” Kakacek said.
Runners-up: Kim’s Nails, Topcoat Salon and Spa, Queen Nails
