Though pearl prospecting is a lucrative labor, scooping sand is tough on delicate finger- and toe-diggers. Today's Groupon soothes scraggy digits for $30 with a classic manicure and pedicure (an $81 value) at Glow Salon & MedSpa, the revamped Scandals Day Spa. Bivalves of the coast will plotz in their shells when they hear tales of your perfectly pampered keratin.
Scandals devotees can expect the same caliber of cosmetic excellence from the renamed spa and salon, and new customers can look forward to a cozy atmosphere and experienced team of nail buffs. Glow's skillful aestheticians will soak, trim, shape, paint, and perfect your grabbing and walking logs, finishing off the classic manicure and classic pedicure with a colorful topcoat. Unkempt cuticles become tidy, feet and lower legs are smooth after an exfoliation, and all 20 nails are Crayola-ized.
Glow is located conveniently on Telegraph Road, so it's an ideal unwinding spot after a long day of work, school, or pistachio shucking. The cozy ambience is more intimate than the inside of a tent filled with 12 of your best friends in matching pajamas. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
Having formerly gone by the moniker Scandals Day Spa, Glow Salon & MedSpa customers often enthused over the services. Insider Pagers gave the spa a solid three-star average, and Citysearchers rated it 3.5:

Glow Salon & Spa
At Glow Salon & Spa, every aesthetician, hairstylist, and nail technician has an additional specialty: customer service. Manager Sandy Suter explains in her Patch video feature that all members of her small team undergo coaching to ensure that they emanate approachable warmth. Whether pampering hands with a sweet-almond and salt treatment or customizing a Redken conditioning regimen, they balance their expertise with intuition for the guest's aesthetic. Their tag line, "Define yourself," speaks to this personalized approach as well as a desire to exponentially increase the size of Webster's Dictionary.
The cosmetic team radiates a playful attitude as it adds fresh flair to primping rituals. Manicures and pedicures often conclude with nail art, which decorates digits in designs from swimming fish to polka dots, whereas hairstylists delight in adhering feather extensions and applying bold colors. Yet apart from aesthetics, the spa focuses on health—both for individuals and the community. Massage therapists unknot tense muscles and ease aches with Swedish and prenatal modalities, and hairstylists participate in community-bolstering programs, such as Locks of Love and cut-a-thons to benefit St. Louis Children's Hospital.
