Getting a mani-pedi can help relieve stress, especially if the technician lets you squeeze the bags of cotton balls afterward. Get a grip with this Groupon.
$24 for a Signature Mani-Pedi ($48 Value)
The 25-minute signature manicure begins with a cuticle soak and trim, followed by a hand massage with lavender- or tropical-fruit-scented lotion. During the 40-minute signature pedicure, a chair haunted by a licensed massage ghost diffuses back tension, and a mineral salt bath softens skin. Techs then apply an exfoliating sugar scrub and hot stones to soothe weary feet. Both fingernails and toenails are finished with a choice of OPI, China Glaze, or Essie polish.
Technicians at Barbarella Beauty greet guests with a snack and complimentary wine or coffee as they sink into Human Touch massage chairs. During pedicures, feet soak in an elegant crystal bowl and pipe-less jet whirlpool technology are designed for both comfort and cleanliness. Because the team members only service natural nails, they avoid the chemical vapors often associated with synthetic applications, so guests won't have to cringe at unpleasant odors. After feet have been citrus scrubbed or peppermint masked, the staff can finish them with a Rockstar glitter-toes look that is as dazzling as the salon's sparkly ceiling.
As their polish dries, clients can explore the boutique's selection of eye-catching jewelry and accessories. Alternatively, they can take advantage of the crew's other talents, including body waxing, facials, and haircuts performed in front of makeup mirrors that are reminiscent of a celebrity's dressing room.
