Your hands are the astronauts of your body—the first explorers to make contact with whatever's in your orbit—and your feet are the blazing rockets that propel you into space. Don't let your rockets burn out and fall off into the Pacific Ocean. Take care of your trustworthy extremities with today's Groupon to Suki Day Spa: $35 gets you two invigorating services with a sea salt French manicure and French pedicure (an $80 value). Your digits would sing merci, except your fingers do not speak French.
Suki's sea salt French manicure starts with a classic mani and a sea salt upgrade before French tips are applied. The pedicure’s classic foundation gets a French upgrade to finally give your toes that Parisian swagger they’ve been longing for since Baguette Tuesday. Add more add-ons to your already upgraded manicure and pedicure by covering the difference.
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 stylishness, hygiene, and the likelihood of you owning a 1996 Dodge Neon. A sophisticated look is never complete without moisturized hands and strong nails. Climb the ladder at work and get more helpful attention on your next shopping trip with well-manicured hands. Milk the rest of open-toed shoe season with polished toes, and rub your silky feet together under the covers on a chilly night.
Note: Please remember to schedule your appointment in advance.
The French Motto and Why We Do It Better
Like the pencil, the French manicure is a French invention that has been perfected by Americans. The French national motto, Liberté, égalité, fraternité, also involves concepts that, though dear to the French, have been perfected by America and Americans:
France: The ideal of liberty consists of being able to do anything that does not harm others.
United States: Liberty is used mostly to wear pajama pants outside.
France: The “equality” of the French motto refers to judicial equality.
United States: Under the law, everyone is equal except for famous people, the indigent, and falcons, who despite their intelligence, cannot be tried as people.
France: Meaning “brotherhood,” the French take their obligations to their neighbors seriously.
United States: In a quirk of translation, Americans love fraternities, but hate their neighbors.

Suki Day Spa
Hawaiian-print curtains welcome clients to Suki Day Spa's shabby-chic Fourth Avenue location, where bamboo screens flank cream-colored sofas in wicker or leather and a vast painting of a red blossom reflects punches of crimson in the throw pillows and fresh blooms. The long, lean space reaches beyond the plush pedicure chairs to a hallway with private rooms, where spa treatments such as massages, facials, and spray tans gloss clients' guises more effectively than daily slatherings of vaseline and glitter.
