Ninety percent of all manicures are given to spies, whose hands are overworked by the intelligence world’s lengthy secret-handshakes. Spy on nicer nails with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a manicure, deluxe pedicure, and hot-stone massage at Buckhead Nail & Toe Spa (a $62 value).
Buckhead Nail & Toe Spa’s attentive technicians pamper extremities using specialty orthopedic pedicure chairs and high-end products, including Elizabeth Arden and O.P.I. The service, lasting 45–60 minutes, softens and primps hands, feet, and digits to the point of sweet surrender. Fingernails change both shape and hue during the manicure, and the deluxe pedicure transcends the typical pedicure process with a hot towel, sugar scrub, and exfoliation. Each pedicure procedure allows for water-temperature adjustment, so toes don’t transmogrify into icicles or fire-icicles, and chairs boast heating and massage capabilities. A hot-stone foot massage keeps feet feeling relaxed and superior to other appendages. Buckhead Nail & Toe Spa recommends that clients refrain from shaving on the day of their pedicure service to keep bacteria from barging in on feet or invading via Trojan horse.
Buckhead Nail & Toe Spa
Buckhead Nail and Toe Spa's staff have spent more than two decades helping others keep their skin and nails looking sharp. Inside the spacious salon, rows of extra-wide orthopedic pedi thrones—each outfitted with heat and massage features—line the floor, and gauzy white fabric hangs above pedicurees as they ease toes into large basins of water heated to their preferred temperature. Joining the spa's nail care services and large collection of polishes are plenty of skin-care options—custom facials and massages, eyelash extensions, and waxing treatments with low-temperature, anti-irritant wax—that serve to summarize the rejuvenating possibilities. To ensure a safe and bacteria-free experience, the staff of Buckhead Nail follow strict sterilization guidelines and wear special bacteria-vision goggles to locate any trespassing microorganisms.
