The Hamburglar started out as a hand burglar but soon found that unkempt appendages could not be sold on the black market, even on the dollar menu. Offer up a side of manicured fingers with each handshake with the help of today’s Groupon: for $39, you get a Seascape Citrus spa manicure (a $35 value) and a Marine spa pedicure (a $55 value) at Finishing Touch Spa in Boulder (a $90 total value). Customers can pay an additional $10 to upgrade to shellac or french-manicure polish.
During the 45-minute Seascape Citrus spa manicure at Finishing Touch Spa, a digit designer massages hands in a heated exfoliating treatment infused with the tangy scents of warm citrus oils. A file then sculpts overgrown finger shields before nail polish or a mini paint gun coats buffed keratin in a choice of vibrant hues. The 60-minute Marine spa pedicure fights tough calluses with a treatment serum, and tootsies tingle while soaking in a refreshing mint mask before nimble fingers massage wearied calves, heels, and arches. The technician then shapes and polishes toe talons.
Inside Finishing Touch's Caribbean-themed spa and salon, tidal waves of beach paraphernalia engulf the treatment suites and locker rooms, and complimentary beverages hydrate clients thirsty from swimming imaginary laps in seascape murals.
The loyal staffers at FT Boulder—many of whom have been at the salon-spa since its inception 30 years ago—beautify bodies in a soothing, tropical-theme atmosphere. On the salon floor, a consultation kicks off hair appointments before nationally certified Redken stylists shampoo strands, lop off locks, and then style them with a blow dryer or a ride in a convertible. In the spa's private treatment rooms, FT helps guests to leave the concrete world outside and escape to relaxing oasis as they prep for anti-aging facial treatments, mud wraps, body waxing, or massage-therapy services. Before treatments, guests are encouraged to sip complimentary beverages while guessing which of the spa’s ubiquitous plants have recently been shampooed.
