Without nails, fingers would be forced scratch itches with feathers, and streets would be lined with unpickuppable dimes. Foster human talons with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a no-chip gel manicure (a $40 value) at AquaStone Nails & Spa, located in Clearwater.
AquaStone Nails & Spa prides itself on its friendly staff, supreme service, and an impeccably clean facility accented by dramatic red drapes and cozy black leather furniture. Fingertips that need a break from hanging onto cliffs can opt for the no-chip manicure, which is designed to gracefully top natural nails for two to three weeks. The service tucks in tired nail beds with OPI's Axxium soak-off gel lacquer, available in a range of colors, such as Dulce de Leche, Strawberry Margarita, and Here Today … Aragon Tomorrow.
A skilled specialist will hoist a small brush to apply the odorless gel to finger shields in layers, before releasing the hands to bask in two two-minute sunning sessions under a UV-light box. Soon afterward, nails leave the premises feeling hardy and shiny, ready to model light switches or artfully replicate drum solos on a friend's steering wheel. For $10, patrons can upgrade their extremity enhancement to a French manicure. Gels will stay put with minimal chipping for several weeks; schedule an appointment at a later date for a soak-off.
