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 $39, you get a porch pedicure, express facial, and beverage at one of Julep Nail Parlor’s four Seattle-area locations.
The skilled aestheticians at Julep Nail Parlor are expertly trained to fortify finger shingles and buff frontispieces until they radiate with attention-grabbing glow. Kick back and present paws for a 40-minute porch pedicure ($48), where nail shaping, cuticle grooming, massage, botanically infused Julep lotion, and carcinogen-free polish restore twinkle to tired toes. A 30-minute express facial ($42) leaves mugs cleansed, smoothed, and soothed while fostering a heavenly glow, traditionally only available to faces willing to skydive from the stratosphere. Pair the duo of potent pampering services with a beverage, such as a refreshing bottle of Perrier ($2), Pyramid Hefeweizen beer ($4), or a glass of wine ($6–$8 at the Bellevue location).
A press-baiting abode of nail nourishment, Julep Nail Parlor follows thorough triple- sterilization procedures and offers a tranquil atmosphere wrapped in charming maple and buttressed by sleek and comfy furnishings. With today's deal, let Julep's quality services lap up to you like the cleansing tide of Tide upon a coastal Laundromat.
Julep Nail Parlor was voted Best Nail Salon of 2009 by Seattle magazine and Best Spa for Group Mani-Pedis by Seattle Bride magazine. Julep Nail Parlor founder Jane Park was featured in Vogue and InStyle also featured the shop in its Beauty Blackbook. Polarized Yelpers give the University District location an average of three stars and the Downtown location a 3.5-star average:
- Julep is bright, clean and professional. It’s easy to customize, and they are always happy to configure seating so that you can actually chat, rather than yell at each other across a crowded salon. – Karen Gaudette Brewer, _Seattle Bride_magazine reader
- The treatments star eco-friendly lotions and polishes that stay shiny and scuff-free (or clients can come in for touch-ups within five days–gratis). – InStyle
