All hands and feet require regular maintenance, except for permacured toes and the Hamburger Helper glove, which is immortal. Take care of what you actually have with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a 30-minute spa pedicure and 60-minute Shellac manicure at Spa on the Boulevard, located in Virginia Beach (an $80 value).
Spa on the Boulevard is a holistic spa dedicated to environmentally friendly practices and wholly beautified clients. Bedazzle digits with the meticulous Shellac manicure, whose UV3 formula blends a shiny polish with a fortifying gel to coat each nail in a mirror finish that can retain sparkle and grip all foreign coins for up to 14 days without chipping (a $45 value). Meanwhile, a specialist will extend pampering to the feet in the organic spa pedicure, which prepares little piggies for the market with an organic foot soak, nail care, and polish application (a $35 value).
Spa on the Boulevard’s owner, Gennipher Wilson, is a master aesthetician and instructor who works with Eminence Organic skin care products and is all-in on the poker game of environmental responsibility. The spa’s cool hues and majestic flora create a colorful, inviting environment, where guests are welcome to sink into the plush purple couches and share their favorite email passwords in the waiting room.
Spa on the Boulevard
As its name implies, the original Spa on the Boulevard is a bastion of peace and quiet on bustling Virginia Beach Boulevard. Though throngs of tourists routinely pass by the spa’s windows, the interior suggests no threat of unwelcome intrusions. Here, therapists customize their massage strokes to relieve stress, aestheticians gently exfoliate skin with Éminence Organic Skin Care facials, and nail technicians protect against chips with Shellac or Gelish manicures.
The spa’s recently opened location in Chesapeake follows the original’s example. Both locations offer 100% green products made with natural and organic ingredients, and both employ a staff whose sole mission is to return the body to its idealized state. Aside from their one-time health and beauty treatments, the spas also run wellness programs dedicated to helping clients detoxify, lose weight, and suppress urges to nervously bite strangers’ nails.
