Without regular exfoliation, normally behaved hands rebel by refusing to grip eating utensils or turning into feet. Avoid two sets of foot paddles with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get a mani-pedi (a $38 value) at International Salon Spa in Rogers Park. This Groupon does not include any OPI no-chip polishes.
International Salon Spa’s skilled technicians exfoliate extremities with soothing mani-pedis, while attentively catering to the wants and needs of each customer. Each 20–30 minute manicure begins by shaping the nails and primping the cuticles with skin-sprucing maintenance. Next, beautysmiths massage each hand with lotion before adorning keratin cubes with a choice of polishes from OPI collections, including the Texas collection, Katy Perry collection, and Don Rickles collection. During the half-hour pedicure—performed in sanitized resin tubs with immaculate equipment—perambulators attain maximum pamperization with a complete nail sculpting, cuticle treatment, and a soothing footbottom pumice rub. A creamy buttermilk and apricot kernel scrub exfoliates stilts from sole to shin, before a lower leg massage and toenail polishing cherry-top each procedure.
Not content with merely coddling cuticles, International Salon Spa boasts a propitious position with expansive floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing customers to take in the scenic lakefront cityscape and passing clouds shaped like summer skies.
