Like gasoline, feet must be carefully treated and refined before they can be used to propel automobiles. Amplify your octane with today's Groupon: for $33, you get a mani-pedi, including paraffin treatments, at Brighter Image Day Spa (a $66 value). Shellac upgrades are available for an additional fee.
Brighter Image Day Spa's technicians hone nails into fashion accessories with the refining ministrations of the salon's digit services. The Dead Sea salt manicure begins with a buff, file, and cuticle conditioning, reworking nails until they are mentally prepared to go undercover in various polish shades. An exfoliating scrub composed of Dead Sea salts sloughs away hands' rough outer layers, allowing the skin-silkening paraffin wrap to work deep into epidermal layers for increased hydration. During the peach-mango paraffin pedicure, feet soaking in a whirlpool footbath emerge from the watery shallows for exfoliating peach-mango scrubs—uniforms stitched out of fruit peels that doctors wear. Paraffin wrapping around ground-floor digits keeps them moisturized and protected from cracking. A polish in the color of choice and an appendage-soothing massage finishes off treatments, with gliding kneads as refreshing as cool rainfall in a boiler room.
Brighter Image Day Spa
In another life, the aestheticians of Brighter Image Day Spa were probably chefs. The spa's service list reads more like a restaurant menu, divided into "Appetizers" and "Entrees" sections ripe with ingredients that could be pulled from any gourmet's kitchen. Nail technicians sprinkle Dead Sea salt onto hands and feet to exfoliate skin and prevent pasta from sticking to it, and peach, mango, and sage infuse a selection of elaborate pedicures. In the spa, aestheticians nourish bodies with neroli body scrubs and minty back facials that empty grime-stuffed pores. After their treatments, patrons can shop the spa's own line of cosmetics, which integrate vitamins and sun protection into a spectrum of vivid colors for the eyes, lips, and face.
