Instead of biting the hand that feeds you, treat that hand to a manicure, and it will likely reciprocate with a breakfast burrito. Be kind to the opposable burrito-makers with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a rosy rosie manicure and pedicure at Lavande Nail Spa in Palo Alto (a $70 value).
At Lavande, a team of skilled beauty experts waits to whisk world-weary hands and feet into a warm, welcoming retreat of appendage appreciation. The rosy rosie manicure siphons stress from pressurized pointers by pampering them in a refreshing bath of rose petals, rose essential oil, milk protein, and fresh mint. Newly softened hands are then treated to a rose and citrus exfoliation, rose-water toning, and a soothing massage—leaving freshened fingers ready to once again enter the world and its throngs of undomesticated rotary phones.
Ensuring all pretty piggies get equal treatment, the rosy rosie pedicure starts by bathing feet in a relaxing potion of rose, lavender, and eucalyptus oils. The subsequent sea salt and botanical nutrient scrub tones, polishes, and scratches barking dogs behind the ears, eliciting a round of paw high-fives and wagging toe-tails.
While hands and feet are being coddled, Lavande Nail Spa's pillow-laden pedicure stations, striking wall art, and brightly lit spaces will help pacify the inner aesthete. The detail-oriented technicians and relaxing environs provide an ideal counterpoint to the stressors of the workplace and the porcupine parade known as life.
