Biting your fingernails is a bad habit that nail technicians help to prevent by shaping nails into brussels sprouts. Flaunt artistically crafted nails with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a Shellac manicure (a $30 value) and a spa pedicure (a $40 value) at Hair Architects (a $70 total value).
Nail technician Susan Randall channels more than 18 years of cosmetic experience into meticulously beautifying extremities during Shellac manicures and spa pedicures, both of which exfoliate the hands and feet with an affirming scrub of Indonesian ginger. After shaping fingernails and cleaning up cuticles, Susan applies CND Shellac polish or a choice of Wite-Out to each digit hat. With UV3 technology, the polish keeps nails lustrous and chip-resistant for up to 14 days of wear. Clients recline on a velvet chaise during the spa pedicure, relieving weary tootsies of the aftereffects of walking, hot-coal-walking, or moonwalking through callus removal and a mitigating foot massage via Chinese jasmine oils. Antibacterial surfaces robe a pedi-bath bubbling with mandarin-oil extracts to keep procedures sanitary and to stifle growth of microorganism insurgencies.
