Watching paint dry can make people restless, especially when the paint covers a television screen or a car's windshield. Experience quick-drying dyes with today's Groupon: for $19, you get your choice of a signature pedicure (a $36 value), a spa mani-pedi (a $38 value), or a Shellac manicure (a $38 value) at Costa La Jolla Nails.
A bronze Buddha statue greets guests at the entry of Costa La Jolla Nails, setting a serene scene for those indulging in nail services within the salon’s airy confines. Plush, cream-colored chairs seat pedicure patrons as they dip toes or stiff leather boots into a footbath that softens skin before a careful cuticle shaping and relaxing foot massage. Those that opt for the signature pedicure further dote on ground-dwelling extremities with a sea-salt scrub and refreshing cooling mask before a dollop of polish anoints digits with the shiny hue of their choice.
A row of treatment tables dressed with orchids pairs hands with a trained manicurist as the spa pedicure segues to a spa manicure. Pointers first sink into a warm soak before a relaxing massage calms hands, forcing them to release their hold on stress and frightened office interns. For hands that frequently place themselves in harms way, the Shellac manicure one-ups traditional treatments by swapping regular nail polish for a longer-lasting blend that deflects manicure marring imperfections such as chips, smudges, and stamped expiration dates.
Though Costa La Jolla Nails sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Costa La Jolla Nails
A bronze Buddha statue greets guests at the entrance of Costa La Jolla Nails, setting a serene scene for those indulging in nail services within the salon’s airy confines. Plush, cream-colored chairs seat pedicure patrons as they dip toes or stiff leather boots into a footbath, playing host to a variety of pedicure treatments that can be enhanced with exfoliating sea-salt scrubs and cooling masks to fully de-stress soles. The salon’s row of treatment tables comes dressed in orchids and outfitted with a resident nail artist, who can dress up hands with pampering polishings or artificial nail enhancements. Clients can upgrade manicures with a CND Shellac polish that coats talons in a long-lasting blend that deflects manicure-marring imperfections such as chips, smudges, and stamped expiration dates. In addition to pampering digits, the in-house aestheticians depilate fuzz from faces and bodies with waxing treatments and clear and smooth complexions in full or express facials.
