Like garden weeds, nails continue to grow no matter how frequently you nibble on them. Tend your digital plots with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a BYOB 30-minute Shellac manicure and a one-hour Shellac pedicure at Lulu's Hair Parlor in O'Fallon (a $92 value).
The professional nail tamers at Lulu's Hair Parlor revamp digit tips during appendage-coddling 90-minute mani-pedis. Sit back with a favorite beverage as the nail whisperer files finger faces, removing jagged edges and remnants from last week's pie-eating contest. Excess skin creeping up along nail borders gets a trimming with a cuticle shaping before epidermises undergo a revitalizing exfoliation that sheds dead skin to aid the appearance of younger-looking hands. Foot fingers receive all the same pampering treatments of a manicure with an additional callus removal that rids pavement pounders of the rough skin and barnacles acquired from barefoot frolics. A splashing of Shellac polish in the client's choice of hue dances elegantly across nails for a digit-prettifying finale.
LuLu's Hair Parlor
The vintage posters and floor murals in LuLu’s Hair Parlor call to mind the quirky, anything-goes philosophy of 1950s Las Vegas. Like the decor that surrounds them on all sides, the salon’s staffers negotiate the delicate balance between stylish and charming. Amid images of pinup girls and Rosie the Riveter, stylists cut and color hair and sculpt fancy updos for special occasions. Nearby, certified nail technicians prepare their clients for sockless sock hops with mani-pedis and acrylic nails.
