Pedicures give feet a break from the daily monotony of walking to bus stops and drop-kicking unsolvable Rubik’s cubes. Pamper paws with today’s Groupon: for $36, you get a nail-care package from Cathy Franco at Allure Salon Professionals (a $90 total value). The package includes:
- Spa manicure (a $35 value)
- Spa pedicure (a $55 value)
Allure Salon Professionals’ Cathy Franco devotes time and attention to the refreshment of nails with high-end products from OPI and Creative Nail Design. Sawtooth fingernails transform into smooth, eye-catching hand accessories during the half-hour manicure, which treats keratin squares to a total makeover that finishes with a glossy coat of nail polish. During the spa pedicure, a soak softens hardened feet as skilled hands file and buff pedal appendages, reducing calluses and evidence of rowboat ownership. Shoe occupants seeking muscular solace find it in the deep-massage portion, during which a moisturizing rub tenderizes skin and a mud mask enshrouds feet in an earthen embrace. To conclude the one-hour pedicure, Cathy carefully applies lotion and nail polish of the customer’s choice, readying feet for long walks on the beach or short sprints to the blowout sale at the flip-flop shop.
