Palm reading provides vague answers about where a man is going, but the art of foot reading conjures undeniable proof that he just walked through wet cement. Treat feet to a healthy future with today's Groupon: for $48, you get a spa manicure and pedicure with a paraffin dip at Cary O'Brien's Design & Color Spa in St. Charles (a $97 value).
Helmed by acclaimed beauty duo Cary and Talisa O'Brien, Cary O'Brien's welcomes world-weary paws to relax amid warm-colored walls, cushioned pedicure chairs, and a friendly and professional staff. Flanked by a flowing waterfall and stone detailing, the private pedicure lounge treats feet to a skin-softening soak in a state-of-the-art clean jet-system chair––which uses pipe-less whirlpool technology to eliminate the possibility of cross-contamination or surprise visits from pet goldfish. Cuticles are neatly curtailed as a sea-salt scrub leaves the surrounding skin glowy and better tasting, and toe polish dresses stylish shoe-fillers with a splash of color. During the 45-minute spa manicure, hands are treated to a similar soaking, softening, and shaping, and the addition of a paraffin dip helps to evict former skin cells that have overstayed their welcome. A hand-and-arm massage soothes away damage done in the clapping aftermath of an awards banquet, and clients cap off the experience with a coating of OPI polish, leaving nails with a finish as shiny as a bedazzled dolphin.
