Like the residents of Madame Tussauds, unsightly hands and feet spook onlookers every time they unexpectedly perform the hokey pokey. Bring lifeless appendages back from the brink with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a deluxe manicure and European spa pedicure at Accents Salon in Fairport (a $70 value).
For nearly three decades, Accents Salon has turned out dulcet ’dos, mesmerizing nails, and lustrous skin from its location in the historic Old Box Factory building on the Erie Canal. During the deluxe manicure, a nail technician massages, conditions, and soothes mitts with heated lanolin and mellifluous music from a tiny violin before performing a spa pedicure from across the pond. The European spa pedicure plunks little piggies into a whirlpool tub, schools foot bottoms like a professor sporting steel-wool elbow patches, and exfoliates all over with a massage and moisturizer application. Patrons spend a few minutes in a vibrating chair as a skilled staffer kneads out knots in stressed legs and feet. Then, in a final act of restoration, a pampering professional will crop overgrown cuticles and burnish all 20 nails before gussying up digits with OPI polish.
