Watching paint dry can make people restless, especially when the paint covers a television screen or a car's windshield. Speed into nice nails with this quick-drying Groupon.
$33 for a Dreamsicle Mani-Pedi ($79 Value)
Technicians gently shape nails before a vanilla- and orange-scented milk soak softens scraggy skin, sending hydrating emollients deep into cells like a prison inmate deathly afraid of small talk with his guard. A body scrub gently lifts away dead skin before body butter locks in moisture. A relaxing massage rubs away tension, and hot towels soften cuticles and nails for trimming. After painting, technicians finish nails with a buff or polish.
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.
