Long nails, besides being essential for removing clear tape and making a convincing transition to werewolf, are also a vital aspect of feminine beauty. Accelerate paws' aesthetic value with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $80 worth of nail services and more at 20 Lounge Nail Bar and Boutique in Cardiff-by-the-Sea.
Fresh from opening in late 2010, the skilled technicians at 20 Lounge beautify bodies with a variety of services in a relaxing, stylish atmosphere. In the mani-pedi classic ($60), similar to the luxurious hot tubs of celebrity shadow puppets, a specialist will dip digits into a relaxing soak before shaping nails, contouring cuticles, and applying a finishing buff. A therapeutic massage and warm-towel treatment round out the pampering process before glove and sock explorers are prettified with your choice of chip-resistant OPI Nail Lacquers. These environmentally conscious tints are never tested on animals by humans, only vice versa. In addition to nail nurturing, 20 Lounge's teeth-whitening treatments ($69 each) ignite smile planks into glowing ivories, and friendly aestheticians can smooth skin during face or body waxing services (starting at $15).
While bodies and tips receive attention, remaining non-keratinous portions of corpuses can luxuriate in the salon's upscale lounge environs. Tastefully done up in warm creams, chocolate browns, and aqua accents, this plush, lounge-like interior may prompt accidental martini orders—and even more accidentally getting them. The staff's warm and welcoming demeanor might cause skin to spontaneously grow additional nails just to get the thrill of the royal treatment.
