Fingers and toes were once close friends, until the big toe's bitter jealousy over the thumb's opposability impelled it to lead its followers deep into the cavernous shoe. Treat all digits equally with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a mani-pedi at Blu Salon & Spa (a $72 value) in Penns Grove.
Voted 2010's Best Day Spa of Salem County, Blu Salon & Spa's staff of hand-and-foot mechanics will buff, shine, and protect your upper- and lower-cuticle balconies as you sip on complimentary wine, coffee, and other flambé concoctions. The salon proudly uses only OPI nail polish and A Natural Difference skincare products during the basic manicure (a $17 value) and spa pedicure (a $55 value). Revel in extremity excess with customized scrubs, paraffin treatments, a mask, and a feather tickling, leaving hands ready to grasp dreams and feet feeling refreshed and renewed to conquer another day of hard labor in shoes. The procedure can remove calluses, restore moisture to dry feet, and heal the cracking and discomfort associated with years of fire walking. This Groupon is by appointment only and pamper-seekers under 15 must be accompanied by an adult.
Blu Salon and Spa
Blu Salon and Spa’s earth-toned décor strikes a delicate balance of influences, falling somewhere between the chicness of the fashion world and the modest beauty of the natural world. The stress-free haven’s experienced staff manages to achieve this same balance in each of their services, which account for the latest trends as they enhance the natural beauty of hair, nails, and complexions.
Stylists grasp shears and pace around salon chairs, snipping with a degree of care and precision that befits their level of experience—from the recently anointed masters at Level 1 to the wizened style sages of Level 2. Tucked away in the mani-pedi nook, nail technicians pamper hands and feet before embellishing nails with CND Shellac or OPI polish, or three-dimensional artworks. Aestheticians call upon botanical-based products from A Natural Difference during seven types of facials, and cosmetic artists enhance features with Glominerals' distinctive blend of high-pigmented minerals and antioxidants.
Regardless of their specialties, Blu Salon and Spa’s crew of beautifiers stay keen on the latest trends and techniques by participating in monthly education courses. The relaxing environment cultivated during treatments extends to the spa’s contemporary waiting room, where you can sip on complimentary wine or coffee and share haunting stories of undead skin cells beside the fireplace.
