Walking a mile in someone else's shoes is a good way to show empathy—unless the other person lives on a parade float, in which case it's best to wave an hour in their rhinestone gloves. Shower recognition on your hands and feet with today's Groupon: for $31, you get a mani-pedi (a $62 value) at Dazzling Nails on South Padre Island inside of One Particular Harbor.
Ana Grossman, the owner of Dazzling Nails for 17 years and licensed aesthetician, personally kneads and polishes extremities in her quaint, charming salon. The first 30 minutes sees fingernails filed and cuticles cut. Each muscle spanning the palm to the triceps, like an oversized ketchup packet, joyfully releases tension with each hand squeeze. The meticulous manicure ends with a polish, before feet submerge in a warm footbath soak. In the 30-minutes pedicure treatment, cuticle shapers carefully sculpt toe chapeaus, and an exfoliation treatment rejuvenates skin. Legs and feet prove they can be stress-free, too, as evidenced by the relaxing massage and documents signed with feet.
Dazzling Nails also offers quality products such as Zoya, OPI, and Shellac, a new polish that sticks to nails for two weeks. Create-a-nail kits are available as well to customize head-scratching when pondering the benefits of unicycle insurance.
