Getting a mani-pedi can help relieve stress, especially if the technician lets you squeeze the bags of cotton balls afterward. Get a grip with this Groupon.
Choose from Six Options
- $10 for one luxury manicure (a $23 value)
- $22 for one specialty pedicure (up to a $55 value)
- $25 for three luxury manicures (a $69 value)
- $35 for one luxury manicure and one specialty pedicure (up to a $78 value)
- $55 for three specialty pedicures (up to a $165 value)
- $99 for three luxury manicures and three specialty pedicures (up to a $234 value)
During the luxury manicure, nail artists trim and shape nails, groom cuticles, and massage the hands and arms. They then ensconce hands in heated mitts, which work to open pores and help skin and nails absorb moisture, and also help prevent nails from splitting and peeling.
Groupon customers who purchase a pedicure option can choose from any of the salon’s specialty pedicures, including the pumpkin-spice glycolic pedicure, which infuses skin with antioxidants and age-reversing nutrients.
Refuge at the Mill
College students explore plenty of options to fund their education—waiting tables, working in the library, moonlighting as birthday clowns—but these ventures are usually temporary. When Charity Hawk began doing nails in 1999 to pay for college, her client roster began to grow, rapidly. She says, “I realized then, this is what you go to college for,” and being a nail technician became her career. Her clients, some of whom have been with her for more than 10 years, get pampered in the space Refuge at the Mill, formerly known as Nails by Charity, where dark hardwood floors and sheer black curtains balance stucco-textured walls, giving the salon an elegant, vintage feel. In mani-pedis enhanced with sugar scrubs and moisture masks, Charity coats nails with polish by OPI and formaldehyde-free Zoya as shiatsu massage chairs ease stress. Charity is most adept at working with acrylic nails, on which she uses only Entity products. Her years of experience have given her a talent for correcting acrylics gone awry without reapplying them, damaging the natural nail bed, or forcing them to go to detention.
