Though they fulfill a purely decorative role in modern times, fingernails were once vital for hunting, digging, and relieving anxiety during suspense-thriller cave paintings. Dress up retired tools with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a mani-pedi package at Hollywood Glam (a $60 total value). The package includes the following:
- Manicure and pedicure (a $40 value)
- Paraffin foot treatment (a $20 value)<p>
The nail techs at Hollywood Glam pamper and beautify people paws with professional manicures and pedicures accompanied by rejuvenating foot treatments. The 60-minute mani-pedi kicks off with a paraffin foot treatment, which simmers tooties in a warm liquid bath of paraffin wax. As the paraffin cools, the wax coating softens calloused skin and loosens tight tendons, giving feet the flexibility needed for typing an autobiography about the two biggest toes. Next, the nail tech applies clippers and files to evict cuticles and sculpt untamed talons into uniform, geometric shapes. Finally, a vibrant coat of polish reclines over nails, dressing up digits for jobs interviews, dates, and flagging down taxicabs without lifting a finger or sounding an air horn.
