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. Look good while delaying gratification with today’s Groupon to Essence of Nails Salon in Burnsville. Choose from the following options:
- For $32, you get a Lickety Split mani-pedi (a $65 value).
- For $49, you get a Minx mani-pedi (a $110 value).
- For $59, you get a Heaven Sent pedicure (a $120 value).
The skilled digit-dressers at Essence of Nails Salon focus on cleanliness and customized care when cloaking phalanges in glossy new shells. During the Lickety Split mani-pedi, files slim and contour nails before technicians deftly coat them in a sleek layer of polish. The Minx mani-pedi overlays nails with flexible films sporting pre-painted designs, circumventing any drying time by sealing them with heat and pressure. The Heaven Sent pedicure includes a massage with warm stones, paraffin treatment, and a customized exfoliation with heated towels in addition to cuticle care and polish. During the 90-minute paw-pampering session, an aromatherapy neck pillow disperses pleasing scents while a pumpkin-spice foot scrub attracts affectionate ankle nips from jack-o’-lanterns.
Patrons can stash lucky nail clippings in a provided personal nailcare bag containing a file, buffing block, orange wood stick, and pedicure slippers. Inside the salon, bright green and brown hues cover the walls, and rugs and chairs sport leafy patterns. Posh, black pedicure chairs position guests for a view of decorative oversize flip-flops mounted on the wall, which constitute to-scale replicas of popular dinosaur beachwear.
Though Essence of Nails Salon sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
