Beauty—if not carefully tended, trimmed, and bugproofed—can become so muddled and befuddled that it is barely visible to the naked or turtlenecked eye. Today's Groupon brings clarity to your beauty with $60 worth of waxing, facials, threading, and peels at Lucid Beauty for $25.
What makes it great: During this service, artificial nails made of fabric are applied to the natural nails. The wraps help protect nails so they can grow longer and stronger, making this a good choice for people with nails that are short or brittle.

Lonni specializes in one particular service: waxing away unwanted hair for women as well as men. The Aveda Institute-trained aesthetician performs signature Brazilian and manzilian treatments, and can quickly eliminate fuzz from limbs, faces, and probably most sweaters as well. Her smoothing work has earned praise from Allure magazine and DailyCandy, and the spa earned the San Francisco Bay Guardian's 2008 award for Best Wax.
