Before polish was invented, unsightly nails were often found hiding inside pitted olives or shaking jealous fists at rainbows. Avoid clawing angst with today's Groupon: for $27, you get a Shellac manicure and pedicure from Pam Brooks at 7th Heaven Hair Salon in Largo (a $55 value).
At 7th Heaven Hair Salon, nail maven Pam Brooks deftly wields advanced polish technology from CND into long-lasting mani-pedis. During the two-hour session, Pam begins by buffing, trimming, and shaping keratin cubes with professional precision. A soothing hand-and-foot soak leaves limb ends feeling soft and clean, and an aromatic massage relaxes palms and peds, leaving them stress-free, tender, and easier to chew. The shiny gel-like Shellac gloss can last up to two weeks without chipping or smudging, and treatments take place in a private corner of the salon so as not to suffer any interruption from other salon patrons or traveling blow-dryer salesmen.
