Nail polish was invented around 3,000 BC in ancient China—a fact that's doubly remarkable considering that human fingernails were only invented last year. Celebrate this admirable foresight with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a natural nail mani-pedi at Always Perfection, about 15 minutes north of downtown in Cuyahoga Falls.
Always Perfection is a full-service salon stocked to the rafters with a warm, knowledgeable, and hospitable staff. These beautymeisters treat cockney finger helmets and coal-blackened toe tips with an effective beauty regimen that transforms them into royal phalange-finishers. The 45-minute wet manicure ($15) begins by soaking grubby grabbers in a warm, relaxing tip-bath, which melts the stress of a day spent giving inky print samples to local law-enforcement officers. After digits are dried, a thorough cut and shape is performed by one of Always Perfection's keratin captainistas, followed by a nail buff and cuticle removal. A thorough application of lotion hydrates your hands, nearly returning them to their original mer-state. The upper-digit pampering concludes with a dapper coat of polish. The basic pedicure ($35) stretches similar services—a 10–15-minute soak, cut, filing, lotion application, and polishing—over a luxurious 60 minutes for the ultimate experience in shoe-stuffer mollycoddling. Call and make an appointment at Always Perfection's relaxing, newly remodeled facility to thank your digits for putting up with your compulsive oyster shucking.
The stylists at Always Perfection can address the beauty needs of pretty much any client. Snipping the strands of men, women, and children, they can also enhance 'dos with color, highlights, and other professional treatments. For hands and feet in need of extra care, mani-pedis can include a skin-softening paraffin-wax dip or long-lasting Shellac polish. Waxes whisk away unwanted hair from the face, body, or phantom limb.
