Having to wait for wet nail polish to dry curbs people's natural urges to plunge fingers into frosting or tickle the mailman too hard. Give kids an upper hand with today's Groupon: for $16, you get a kids' manicure (an $11 value), pedicure (an $18 value), and glitter tattoo (a $3 value) at Daisy Doo's and Dudes in Wilbraham (a $32 total value).
Manicure mavens at Daisy Doo's shape, polish, and festoon nails in a whimsical salon environment. On a flower-shaped table, the hands of pintsize patrons luxuriate in a sweet sugar scrub before being massaged with flavored lotion. Tiny fingertips receive a coating of kid-selected polish, deftly applied with tiny brushes stolen from a beauty school for elves. Feet follow the same pamper-path, but begin with a toe-tingling foot bath. Nail art bedecks newly dressed-up digits with designs ranging from butterfly patterns and zebra prints to crop circles and mimeographed Dead Sea Scrolls. While piano ticklers rest in the colorful mouth of a frog-shaped nail dryer, a temporary glitter tattoo adds additional pizzazz to already-dazzling divas.
Fanciful mirrors add whimsy to the 45–60 minute service, and vibrant murals and furnishings further delight and distract salon-going scamps. Although not covered by this Groupon, all-age haircuts, updos, and feather extensions are available, and princess or superstar-themed birthday parties thrill youngsters and tiara addicts alike.
