Hands are constantly placed in stressful situations, having to find the right grip during handshakes, the proper placement during a first kiss, and the correct gestures while signing "I'm stuck in this aquarium!" Treat your effective communicators with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a classic effect manicure (a $35 value), pedicure (a $45 value), and hydrating hand paraffin dip (a $20 value) for two, plus two glasses of champagne (a $5 value each) at Butterfly Effect Day Spa in Sierra Madre (a $210 total value).
The veteran aestheticians at Butterfly Effect Day Spa cosset phalanges with soothing services and Éminence organic skin-care products. Appendages embark on a stress-quelling journey with the mani-pedi, which commences with a hand-and-foot soak followed by a custom nail shaping and cuticle grooming. Afterwards, digits are massaged to fully banish any tension from corporal kingdoms. A toxin-free nail polish or natural buff shine then dances across finger- and toe-faces as smoothly as a ballet dancer glides across a stage lathered in extra-virgin olive oil. Finally, paws rest in a hydrating paraffin dip to seal in the skin softening deal.
The padded chairs, hanging art, and homey accents of the spa infuse a sense of calm into guests, which is further solidified by a glass of champagne (or non-alcoholic beverage for guests under 21). Following their visit, customers leave Butterfly Effect Day Spa feeling as valued as a lion tamer among a lost safari tour group.
