If left untended, hands have been known to flee arms and take up residence with Addams families. Keep hands from autonomy with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a Barb’s Paradise manicure (a $20 value) and pedicure (a $30 value) at Barbarella Beauty in Willow Glen (a $50 total value).
A chic, boutique-style salon, Barbarella pampers visitors amid funky paintings, purple walls, Hollywood-style makeup mirrors, and plush velvet chairs. Fingers and toes can relax after a day of active thumbs up-ing and foot-bumping their boss with a luxurious paradise manicure and pedicure, featuring brand-name polishes from OPI, Minx, and Shellac. Besides being bestowed with shapelier cuticles and a colorful new coating, dingy digits will be treated to a luxurious paraffin wrap and aromatherapy soak—forever banishing that new foot smell once and for all. Next, a gentle, organic sugar scrub sheds dead skin cells, leaving skin silky soft, and a complimentary hot stone massage molds maligned muscles back into place. Finally, a layer of organic body butter will seal in moisture to ensure it doesn’t seep out before Valentine's Day and the awkwardly long handshake you've been saving for a loved one. Guests at Barbarella Beauty can also look forward to complimentary wine, coffee, tea, lemon water, and snacks, and eyes can feast heartily on the clothing and beauty products for sale in the salon.

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.
