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 (a $70 value) at Lavande Nail Spa in Nob Hill.
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 (a $25 value) 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 (a $45 value) 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.
