Highly functional hands are what separate man from the animals, giving humans an evolutionary edge with opposable thumbs and the ability to tell stories through shadow puppetry. Pamper built-in narrators with today’s Groupon to Diva Nail Lounge. Choose between the following options:

An eco-minded salon, Diva Nail Lounge gives hands and feet a stellar glow in an environmentally friendly fashion with a slew of natural products. Feet slip into a bath of warm milk and rose petals during the Cocoacarey pedicure before a technician exfoliates away dead skin with an organic oatmeal sugar scrub. A moisturizing chocolate mask encircles weary shoe occupants in mood-elevating tryptophan, leaving feet softer than an overripe peach fresh from the dryer. Nail artists begin the Diva signature mani-pedi pamperfest with an organic citrus bath. After trimming and shaping nails, the shop’s beauty experts groom unruly cuticles with almond oil and duly evict light calluses from overworked feet with a pumice stone. An exfoliating oatmeal scrub frees hands and feet from dry, crackly patches by hydrating, soothing, and energizing skin. With an aromatic boost from a honey avocado mask, a 15-minute reflexology massage relieves tension in both the hands and the feet, readying them for work, errands, or intense games of kick the can. Following the service, guests can admire phalanges newly decked out in a french-manicure design or coats of eco-friendly Spa Ritual nail polish.
Diva Nail Lounge
If you walked into Diva Nail Lounge with a blindfold on, your nose might mistake the salon for a farmers market. The scents of mint, papaya, chocolate, and avocado drift through the space, wafting from natural scrubs and masks. Feet steep in milk baths dappled with rose petals and slices of citrus fruits, and lavender and rose essential oils condition cuticles. Technicians aren't employing the organic ingredients for their aromas alone—they choose them for their nourishing properties, such as antioxidants that combat aging and proteins that hydrate the skin.
The technicians' devotion to earth-friendly formulas is matched by their commitment to hygiene. The salon doesn't stock spa chairs because of sanitary concerns, and the staff throws away disposable tools after a single use. For example, during each Diva house treatment, techs buff calluses with a new pumice stone. To preserve more durable utensils, they sterilize their surfaces with hospital-grade treatments.
The menu covers luxurious mani-pedi services and add-ons that range from paraffin dips to peppermint clay masks. Treatments typically culminate in vibrant coats of nail polish, including the hues of SpaRitual nail lacquer—shades that avoid synthetic dyes in favor of all-natural colors harvested from the inside of kaleidoscopes.
