Like garden weeds, nails continue to grow no matter how frequently you nibble on them. Tend your digital plots with today’s Groupon: for $55, you get a spa package at London Styling Shoppe and Spa in Springdale (a $111 value). The package includes:
- A paraffin hand dip (an $8 value)
- A spa manicure (an $18 value)
- A pedicure with foot mask (a $45 value)
- A custom facial with skin analysis (a $40 value)
After mitts emerge from a mineral-packed paraffin dip, the seasoned digit decorators at London Styling Shoppe and Spa trims, shapes, and buffs nails to prepare them for a smoothly layered lacquer. Patrons snuggle into heated, massaging pedicure chairs while soaking tootsies in a warm bath before they marinate in a moisturizing mask. Cuticles then yield to the touch of the technicians, who ensure that keratin canvases are prepared for tiny portraits of Harriet Beecher Stowe stenciled in bright hues.
After a brief skin analysis, epidermis aficionados then prime façades for a custom combination of treatments most suitable to each individual’s skin type. The approximately 60- to 90-minute facials begin with a thorough cleansing and steam before extractions rid pores of toxins, impurities, and residual Halloween makeup. A personalized mask follows, and aestheticians top off facials with a restorative, moisturizing elixir.
