Watching paint dry can make people restless, especially when the paint covers a television screen or a car's windshield. Experience quick-drying dyes with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a Bliss signature manicure and traditional pedicure at Bliss Nail Spa in Everett (a $50 value).
The seasoned staff at Bliss Nail Spa reconfigures nails into perfectly polished digits during a pampering mani-pedi inside an elegant spa space with bamboo accents and a prismatic wall of tiles. Nail technicians begin appendage makeovers with a nail shaping and cuticle trimming, creating shapely, refined tips free of hangnails and burrowing finger badgers. The exfoliating granules of a sea-salt scrub then slough away skin’s rough outer layer, with massaging kneads coaxing fresh, glowing layers out of their skin shell. Hands dunk into a skin-smoothing paraffin wax, and a hot-towel wrap ensconces pavement-pounders to help to unwind built-up tension. Sessions conclude with a layer of OPI polish bedecking nails in the client’s shade of choice, creating digits more colorful than those on a Technicolor calculator.
