Nail polish was invented around 3000 BC in ancient China—a fact that's doubly remarkable considering that human fingernails were only invented last year. Celebrate this admirable foresight with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get a Shellac manicure at Hot Rodz and Betties Hair Garage in Santee (a $40 value).
Inside a red and black rockabilly-inspired salon, the fashion-savvy staffers of Hot Rodz and Betties Hair Garage transform nails into long-lasting finger accessories with the ministrations of a chip-free Shellac manicure. Nail techs primp and file nails into rounded or square tips before coating them in a layer of Shellac polish, which cures to digits under the heated rays of a UV lamp. Polishings flawlessly adhere to fingers for up to two weeks, avoiding irksome chips, smudges, and peer pressure from abstract art.
Although the salon sometimes offers discounts online, this Groupon still represents the best deal around.
Hot Rodz & Betties Hair Garage
Parked inside Hot Rodz & Betties Hair Garage, an all-female staff of experienced hairstylists and nail technicians pampers guests during salon services. They prune hairdos, inject vibrant or subtle color, and evict frizz left over from bowling with an electromagnetic ball. Not ones to preference one body part over another, the team also dotes on guests with waxing, spray-tan, facial, and mani-pedi treatments.
