Debrett's classifies a perfect handshake as being firm, brief, and only tolerant of overgrown cuticles on Boxing Day. Prepare hands for 364 days of genteel decorum with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a shellac manicure at Details Hair & Nail Studio on Rochdale Boulevard (a $55.50 value).
Details Hair & Nail Studio helps neglected digits shed their calloused coats, revealing beautifully filed underbellies with a manicure performed by an experienced nail tech. Hands begin their metamorphoses with a finger soak, after which an attentive buffer gently treats and pushes back climbing cuticles and files away jagged edges. Tension dissipates during a soothing hand massage, and the application of Shellac polish keeps fancified fingertips colourful and chip-free for up to 10 days, or a fortnight’s worth of sandpapering telephone poles into toothpicks. Lavish red and calming yellow walls surround Details' homey space, accented with funky and modern art. Cushy swivel chairs provide comfort, and bright lights allow techs to beautify every arch, whorl, and loop without a microscope.
