Painted nails permit an important part of the human structure to match favorite clothing ensembles without the oddities associated with all-over pinstripe tattoos, such as offers from tailors to lengthen your limbs. Dab on some practical hues with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a spa manicure (a $30 value) and spa pedicure (a $45 value) at La Rue Salon, located inside Oasis Salon Suites & Spa (a $75 total value).
La Rue Salon's Rosario Galvez channels 26 years of reflexology know-how into pampering paws with spa mani-pedi procedures. During the 45–60-minute spa manicure, hands sink into a moisturizing paraffin-wax treatment, which softens skin and suffocates poltergeists hiding inside mood rings. Exfoliating crystals then clear off debris standing between pores and fresh oxygen, as a crystal activator prunes cuticles and shapes nails into svelte digit caps. Aveda's Hand Relief treatment soothes arms from the elbows down during a massage, while warm towels wrap appendages in toasty cocoons. Finally, clients can oversee their phalange portraiture by selecting an OPI polish color and oversized Victorian ruff for each finger.
The 60-minute spa pedicure, alternatively, trims toe-claws and cuticles down to size before sea-salt glow crystals hydrate feet. Callouses flee in the face of a meticulous filing, and a brush coats arches in a marine mask so that ears pressed to soles can hear crashing waves. After hot towels and a cool moisturizer swaddle gams, cucumber heel therapy and a massage reign in potential charlie horses, and polish cloaks toes in vibrant new shades. Groupon holders can feel free to upgrade to an aromatherapy Le Chocolate spa pedicure for an additional $10.
