All hands and feet require regular maintenance, except for permacured toes and the Hamburger Helper glove, which is immortal. Take care of what you actually have with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a spa mani-pedi at Academy of Nail Technology (a $40 value).
Academy of Nail Technology's experienced instructors train student technicians to pamper nails. During the spa manicure, a technician shapes nails into the appropriate form and cleans off cuticle clutter while pampering and smoothing the skin. During the spa pedicure treatment, a nailsperson exfoliates the feet with a scrub, which also polishes and smoothes the skin, before applying a protective mask and massaging away foot tension. The massage, like a knife that will be used to slice through a dry turkey, is bolstered by a moisturizer. Since the Academy of Nail Technology is a training ground for future salonsmiths, services will likely take longer than they would at a professional salon.
Academy of Nail Technology
Academy of Nail Technology's instructors import at least five years of field experience into classrooms where they equip apprentice nail techs with the latest techniques. The Academy’s hands-on learning atmosphere is similar to a traditional salon, one stocked with contemporary tools and polishes, including Shellac and Gelish. Budding beautifiers focus on executing flawless services, and therefore sometimes take longer than professionals to perform mani-pedis and nail art.
