What You'll Get
Your hands are the astronauts of your body—the first explorers to make contact with whatever's in your orbit—and your feet are the blazing rockets that propel you into space. Don't let your rockets burn out and fall off into the Atlantic Ocean. Take care of your trustworthy extremities with today's Groupon to Lace Nail and Beauty Lab. For $29, you get Lace's signature mani-pedi (a $60 value) from either of its two convenient locations on West Avenue and S. Pointe Drive, plus 15% off a non-sale, in-store purchase made on the day you redeem your Groupon. This deal doesn't just spiff up your hands and feet, it invigorates the senses with luxurious hot towels and the underutilized arts of hand and foot massage. Grab your mom, bestie, or hang-nailed life coach and kick off a girls' day out with aromatic mani-pedis.
Toeing the line between girlhood fantasy and womanly indulgence, Lace Nail and Beauty Lab is a dreamy dollhouse dressed in pink, white, and silver. Relax in the comfy oversized armchairs against plush pillows and let the nail fantasy begin. Your friendly and expert nail technician will pamper your fingers and toes, soaking your tired feet in a luxurious bath and wrapping your hands in hot, steamy towels. You'll get a luxurious massage, expert nail and cuticle grooming, and a rich slather of warm lotion to lock in moisture after your magical callus erasure. Choose from a nail buff or polish, such as the signature sheer pink polish that Essie created just for Lace.
The benefits of your mani-pedi last longer than the decadent experience itself. Because your hands are always out in front, the condition of your nails and skin will affect people's impression of your age, hygiene, and the likelihood of you owning a 1996 Dodge Neon. A sophisticated look is never complete without youthful hands and strong nails. Climb the ladder at work and get more helpful attention on your next shopping trip with well-manicured hands. Indulge your toes with the polish they’ve been nagging you to get, and rub your silky feet together under the covers on a chilly night.
- The spa is about as subtle as Barbie's Dream House, but we have to admit we loved every sweet second. – Allure
- ...Elizabeth asked Essie to create a special nail color for the salon. Essie unveiled an exclusive color, appropriately named Lace, a sheer pink that the salons use for promotion purposes and in the salon itself. – Thi Dao, Nails
- ...by far my favorite place to get a mani/pedi in Miami...their service is consistently great...It always smells fresh and clean. And I love how comfortable their chairs are. – Kathy G.
- My technician was sweet and attentive...I loved the little flourishes: warm oil followed by lotion, my hands wrapped in steamy towels before the polish was applied. – MiRIAM w.
- The staff was charming and talkative but not pushy and above all they were friendly and lacked attitude. – Maria A.
The Continuing Adventures of Manny & Peddy
Older folks and non-nail owners might associate the phrase mani-pedi with the popular 1950s children’s television program The Continuing Adventures of Manny & Peddy, the story of two bumbling friends and the embarrassing, yet educational, situations in which they find themselves. Here’s a transcript from a 1952 episode:
Manny: Peddy, are you done painting that silo yet? President Teddy Roosevelt is going to be here any minute!
Peddy: Sh-sh-sure thing, Manny! Let me just balance my open can of paint on the top of this ladder! (climbs down) Say, Manny, what’s the big deal with Teddy Roosevelt, anyway?
Manny: You featherhead! Teddy Roosevelt was one of our nation’s greatest presidents! By passing the Antiquities Act of 1906, Roosevelt and his successors were able to create numerous national parks and monuments we still enjoy today!
Teddy Roosevelt: (enters) Did someone mention The Antiquities Act?
Manny & Peddy: (in unison) President Roosevelt!
Teddy Roosevelt: Bully!
Peddy: Mister President, don’t lean on that ladder!
Although 750 episodes of Manny & Peddy were produced between 1951 and 1956, the film archives were destroyed in 1991, when the Smithsonian Institute of Television and Radio proclaimed them not very good.

About Lace Nail Lab
A row of plush white leather seats stands out amid a sea of pink in Lace Nail Lab's main studio. The studio is furnished with seats that have soft red pillows, where the ministrations of dedicated nail technicians tend to feet and hands, maybe those of a client, maybe those of a clock that fell off the wall. Sparkling pink walls and Asian-inspired lamps add to the atmosphere of color-coded luxury. Facials, waxing, and massages round out the menu of beautifying services.
