Like Jacksons, fingers and toes perform best in groups of five and when dressed in matching colors. Pamper your appendage quintets with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get three deluxe spa ManiQ manicures and PediQ pedicures at ManiQ Salon in Dorchester (a $149.94 value).
The beauty technicians at ManiQ Salon back mani-pedis with a no-chip guarantee, revitalizing all 20 digits with the same care they lavish on countenances. During the deluxe spa pedicure, toes dabble in a blend of essential oils and aloe vera, whose pure ingredients soften callused heels and remove tales of all the bugs they stepped on. Manicures commence with a phalange-preparing oil-infused sugar exfoliant. Files then buff calluses from hands and feet, and nimble fingers smooth extremities with a glycolic-acid scrub infused with ground rice and aloe-vera gel. A cool marine-clay mask floods palms and soles with moisture before a rainbow of bright lacquer coats nails with colors from OPI or the organic Curtsy & Bow.
Gleaming geometric footbaths line the clean lounge, where minimalism rules the black-and-white décor with a stainless-steel fist. Fill lungs with specially filtered air, palates with hot tea, and bellies with pastries and snacks while surfing the web at one of the salon's two iMacs.
