It is important for humans to treat their bodies well, as too much wear and tear may lead to a lost security deposit and model downgrade to a three-legged alley hamster. Protect your trade-in value with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a no-chip Polish Pro manicure at Blackfriars Salon & Spa, with locations on Wharncliffe Road North and Wonderland Road North (a $40 value).
Locally owned Blackfriars Salon & Spa envelops spa-goers in a sanctuary of calm, pampering needy appendages with a wide range of treatments. Manicures soundly coat naked digit tips, attending to the nail as well as cuticles. More than a blend of gel and polish, NSI Polish Pro's complex formula combines the plucky initiative of photoinitiators, oligomers, and monomers in more than 24 shades. Resultant natural coatings resist wear from even the longest sculpture fist fights, keeping nails free from chipping, smudging, and cracking for up to two weeks. When nails have flaunted themselves to a dull sheen, polish soaks off within minutes.
As part of this Groupon, Blackfriars endows clients with $5 off each their next Polish Pro treatment, 20 per cent off highlights, colour treatments, and in-store retail, and increased confidence during label-peeling contests. Guests can also purchase the salon's toe-toughening Polish Pro pedicure (normally $78) for $49. Blackfriars is the official spa of the London Knights, who patronize the salon's luxurious lounge and partake in the complimentary tea and coffee during postjousting rejuvenation.
Blackfriars Salon & Medi Spa
Husband-and-wife team Audrey and Ryan Yeo founded Blackfriars Salon & Spa as a means of providing frazzled guests with a tranquil space in which to recharge. They staff both locations with a crew of trained stylists and aestheticians who gussy up patrons via a host of salon, skin, and hand and foot services. Receptionists share complimentary cups of coffee, green tea, or water with clients as stylists gild heads in multidimensional highlights. Nail technicians add glamour to hands with glossy, chip-resistant Shellac manicures, and therapists administer hot-stone massages to ease muscles aching from workdays spent cannonballing.
