What You'll Get
Ninety percent of all manicures are given to spies, whose hands are overworked by the intelligence world’s lengthy secret-handshakes. Prep your digits for undercover elegance with today’s Groupon to Buff & Glo Natural Nail and Tanning Lounge in Oceanside. Choose from the following options:
- For $30, you get a pumpkin resurfacing facial peel (a $65 value).
- For $35, you get a classic waterless manicure (a $25 value) and a Hollywood Rock Star pedicure (a $45 value; a $70 total value).
- For $45, you get a chakra-stone facial (a $90 value).<p>
In a hip lounge setting, replete with a marble-topped bar and soft lighting, Buff & Glo enhances exteriors with all-natural beauty treatments. Patrons relax with a heated neck wrap and hand massage before nail mavens wield UV-sterilized tools to buff and shape nails, corral cuticles into place, and lacquer up finger-top canvasses during the acrylic-free waterless manicure. Unlike standard water-based treatments, the aqua-eschewing process refines finger crowns naturally without the dehydration, cracked polish, and need for heavy snorkeling equipment. Pedicure stations cradle clients in opulent leather seating beneath a personal mini chandelier as toes are soaked, softened, and swathed in a glittery rock-star gel lacquer, which, like a distractible hypochondriac simultaneously surprised by a solar eclipse and getting hit in the face by a hand-full of glue-covered sparkles, cures quickly beneath a UV light to shimmer for up to eight weeks.
Alternately, clients can polish up skull billboards with a choice of nourishing facials. The pumpkin peel steamrolls pigment problems, signs of aging, and errant pie-crust crumbs by infusing faces with a bounty of organic botanicals and brightening agents. Aestheticians aim to open up energy pathways and allay aging in the chakra-stone facial, which uses specially placed stones to put bodies in balance as a range of tropical-fruit enzymes go to work on faces to dissolve dull skin cells.
