In order to toughen their nails for chaotic close-quarters brawling, Shaolin monks would spend hours flicking their fingers against granite boulders deep in the wilderness. Today's Groupon protects finger helmets while re-arming faces. For $45, you get a no-chip color-gel manicure ($35) and a full airbrush makeup application ($85) from Beauty Heaven, a $120 total value. You do not need to use both halves of today's deal during the same visit, and appointments are required.
With the no-chip manicure, a stylist paints nails with successive layers of a gel that, when exposed to UV light, becomes harder than performing calculus on a diamond. Once applied and treated, this glistering coating can only be removed by soaking in a hot tub of acetone or by a skilled micro-Zambonist. Nothing complements a nice set of nails like a nice set of face. Heaven's airbrush sharpshooters will spray on a pristine, even foundation while using the most plush, sumptuous mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and barbecue sauces to enhance each individual's look. Use your newly accentuated façade to slay with one sexy glance or get out of speeding tickets.
Before or after the beautification, sip complimentary cappuccinos, lattes, and diet sodas inside Heaven's bright and contemporary Irvine salon. Heaven's stylish stylists have each mastered a different discipline (hair extensions, keratin smoothing, demolitions, etc.), ensuring that a Jack of one specialized trade performs each treatment.
