Some nail techs draw dots and stripes on their clients' nails and call that art. Not so with Combs Salon's nail artist Dixie. The dots she draws might actually be the seeds on a slice of watermelon; the stripes the curving patterns on a monarch butterfly's wing.?She has even been known to decorate nails with My Little Pony characters, sports team logos, and comic book characters.
Dixie discovered her passion for pretty nails when she was a child and would paint her mom's nails. But she convinced herself that her dream was working with computers and making sure they didn't become sentient. As a result, she worked for a help desk for three years. While she manned the phones, she would paint her nails to pass the time. Dixie quickly realized that she needed to be in a more creative career, so she enrolled in beauty school and discovered her passion for beautiful nails.

Experienced nail specialist Cynthia Brown harnesses more than 20 years of industry experience and top-notch products to prune and add pigment to the ends of torso branches. During the 60-minute chocolate spa manicure, Cynthia liberates graspers from calluses, general coarseness, and naked strawberries with a deluge of silky belgian dark chocolate infused with exfoliating kona coffee beans. As the confectionary elixir cascades over furrowed ridges, antioxidants flood pores and restore worn surfaces to a vibrant veneer.
With an interior of complementary chocolate browns and buttercreams, modern furniture, and richly pigmented decorative accents, Panache ensconces its clients in an atmosphere of casual chic. If you opt for today's lock-lopping deal, your visit to the relaxing salon will begin with a consultation and a trip to the “shampoo sanctuary,” where tresses go to be lavishly sudsed while their accompanying bodies enjoy pleasant pummeling from shiatsu massage chairs. Then, one of Panache’s scissor slingers will carve your ’do and apply zesty head condiments to transform your scalp topper into an appetizing eye feast. Women's cut and style services start at $29, but average at $40, and men's cut and style services start at $18.
As you lounge in Debra's soothing sanctuary, a certified nail technician will launch your lavish manicure treatment by adorning your finger facades with the Axxium gel base, followed by several bulletproof coats of vibrant Axxium gel lacquer.

After two weeks of wooing beauty queens and cat's cradle partners with your flawless fingertips, return to Debra's for a free color-removal service, or maintain glamorous mitten fillers by scheduling another specialty service (not included in the value of this Groupon).
