If left untended, hands have been known to flee arms and take up residence with Addams families. Keep hands from autonomy with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a manicure (a $25 value) and a Minx nail application (up to a $55 value) at 212, a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon (up to an $80 total value).
The adroit digit detailers at 212 whip insipid phalanges into shining shape with their nail services. During the manicure, salon technicians gently scrub, shape, and buff hand-helmets to create ten even-tipped blank slates upon which to work their artistic magic. A vast selection of Minx designs, patterns, and colors transform nails into miniature canvases that showcase fingers. Through heat activation, the protective adhesive forms directly to nails, creating a mess-free manicure or emergency lacquer for a cracked space shuttle. With no dry time, these nails, once applied, are immediately ready to tickle the ivories, group-text acquaintances, or point out the murderer in an entire drawing room full of butlers.
As fingers get prettified, eyes are pampered with ocular delights as they drink in the salon’s sleek black-and-concrete walls that pop with accents of vivid colors.
