Jennifer Stone Nail Studio wields 15 years of accomplished nail work to refurbish each client's appendage endings. The studio's nail technicians forgo demonic drills for the personal touch of a traditional nail file, which gets replaced by a new specimen before each treatment. During the 60-minute basic pedicure, cuticle whisperers will trim and shape toe tips into functional, fashionable members of the foot infrastructure. A below-the-knee massage works out tense shins, cramped calves, and empties stress reserves stored in hollow legs, and a foot file and polish adds the final aesthetic touch to little piggies bound for sandals or markets. Jennifer Stone Nail Studio sports an inviting, modern space decorated with framed black and white photographs, white porcelain vases, and vibrant hot pink flourishes.
Studio 7's stable of pedicurists hones feet into stylish leg accessories with a beautifying spa-pedicure treatment. Nail wranglers whip deca-digits into shape with a buff, a file, and a cuticle grooming, preparing blank canvases for a colorful makeover or footshakes with a monkey dignitary. An exfoliating scrub sloughs away rough outer layers, and a lotion application reinvigorates skin's moisture levels. Basement tensomes take a leisurely soak as staffers soften calluses before each newly supple foot receives a five-minute massage. A coat of pigmented polish finishes off the pedicure treatment, with optional sticker decals dressing up nails in fun floral designs or realistic abacus-bead patterns.
Thailand invented the massage in 391 BC to alleviate the soreness that came from hours of Thai boxing, which had been invented the year before. While it's no longer performed on elephants, the massage's form has changed little in the ensuing centuries—until today's Groupon. For $38, new clients can get a customized one-hour massage from The Spa & Clinic at the Texas Healing Arts Institute.
