Palm readers predict their clients’ future by studying the lines on their skin, the calluses on their fingers, and the fortune cookies clenched in their fists. Rewrite the story of your extremities with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a mani-pedi from Pamela Behrle at Cut N Corners in Vestavia Hills (a $55 total value). The mani-pedi includes:
- Manicure (a $15 value)
- Pedicure (a $40 value)
Former massage therapist Pamela Behrle sets up shop at Cut N Corners, where she draws from 30 years of experience to garnish claws during manicures and pedicures. During the one-hour procedure, customers roost their hindquarters in a shiatsu-massage chair, a relaxation tool used to wipe away memories of frustrating moments such as losing the Super Bowl or encountering a lack of parking spaces at the Super Bowl. Simmering oils play a lead role in the manicure, during which cuticles are pushed back and luxurious lotions knead into hands and feet during a reflexology massage that aims to melt the body’s extremities into puddles of phlegmatic contentedness. During the pedicure, the aesthetician gussies up hooves with mint water, a scrub, and a mint mask. Customers peruse an extensive color selection, ranging from the subtle sky blue to the blushingly proud-of-an-on-time-payment landlord red, before a solar base coat seals their chosen polish, ensuring a lengthy life span. Clients can feel free to upgrade to a white-tipped french manicure ($7), the durable Shellac ($15), or the skin-softening paraffin ($10).
