All hands and feet require regular maintenance, except for permacured toes and the Hamburger Helper glove, which is immortal. Take care of what you actually have with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a shellac manicure (a $50 value) at Cosmic Touch Massage & Nails, located inside Arizona Spa in New Berlin.
Cosmic Touch owner, Brenda Schulpius, prettifies piggies with a shellac base, color, and top coat for chip-resistant nails that last longer than traditional polish. During the approximately 60-minute manicure, a mitt-soak leaves hands soft, before an exfoliating scrub eliminates dead skin cells and bestows hands with a dewy glow not seen since their patty-cake days. Cuticle cutters then trim and shape unruly nail covers as files and clippers whittle arm-knives into ship-sharp shape. To cap the paw makeover, Brenda massages each phalange and paints each of its shields in a choice of shellac shades, sending clients back into the world with the confidence that their lacquered limbs will stay lustrous for up to two weeks.
State-licensed manicurist and nationally certified massage therapist Brenda eases the chronic pain of fatigued muscles and occasional embarrassment of unkempt nails at Cosmic Touch. She draws from 15 years of experience and an education from a COMTA-certified school and the Aveda Institute of Beauty and Wellness to deliver Swedish and therapeutic massage, targeted foot reflexology, and manicure and pedicure services. Shellac manicures are available to keep polished surfaces chip-free for up to 2 weeks or one tool-free attempt at carving your initials into a tree.
