Take care of your trustworthy extremities with today's Groupon to Paint: $28 gets you a luxurious spa manicure and pedicure (a $56 value). This deal doesn't just spiff up your hands and feet, it invigorates the senses with exfoliation crystals and the under-utilized arts of hand and foot massage. Grab your mom, bestie, or hang-nailed life coach and kick off a girls' day out with pampering mani-pedis.
The moment you set a callused foot in Paint, you'll be wrapped in a blanket of comfort amid homey hardwood floors and rustic exposed brick. Along with the homespun décor, you'll notice a peerless standard of cleanliness and warm smiles to greet you. On top of the usual cut, file, cuticle trim, and polish, your spa mani-pedi includes an indulgent foot mud mask and your choice of paraffin or callus treatment for your hardworking feet, crystal exfoliation on your dainty hands, and extra massages on all four paws. Your friendly technicians will cosset your hands and feet for more than an hour, and use Essie, OPI, and Creative Spa products to give you the hottest colors and finishes this side of an eBay lot of Swatches.
The benefits of your mani-pedi last longer than the decadent experience itself. Because your hands are always out in front, the condition of your nails and skin will affect people's impression of your age, hygiene, and the likelihood of you owning a 1996 Dodge Neon. A sophisticated look is never complete without youthful hands and strong nails. Climb the ladder at work and get more helpful attention on your next shopping trip with well-manicured hands. Milk whatever's left of open-toed shoe season with polished toes, and rub your silky feet together under the covers on a chilly night.

The Continuing Adventures of Manny & Peddy
Older folks and non-nail owners might associate the phrase mani-pedi with the popular 1950s children’s television program The Continuing Adventures of Manny & Peddy, the story of two bumbling friends and the embarrassing, yet educational, situations in which they find themselves. Here’s a transcript from a 1952 episode:
Manny: Peddy, are you done painting that silo yet? President Teddy Roosevelt is going to be here any minute!
Peddy: Sh-sh-sure thing, Manny! Let me just balance my open can of paint on the top of this ladder! (climbs down) Say, Manny, what’s the big deal with Teddy Roosevelt, anyway?
Manny: You featherhead! Teddy Roosevelt was one of our nation’s greatest presidents! By passing the Antiquities Act of 1906, Roosevelt and his successors were able to create numerous national parks and monuments we still enjoy today!
Teddy Roosevelt: (enters) Did someone mention The Antiquities Act?
Manny & Peddy: (in unison) President Roosevelt!
Teddy Roosevelt: Bully!
Peddy: Mister President, don’t lean on that ladder!
Although 750 episodes of Manny & Peddy were produced between 1951 and 1956, the film archives were destroyed in 1991, when the Smithsonian Institute of Television and Radio proclaimed them not very good.
