Though pearl prospecting is a lucrative labor, scooping sand is tough on delicate finger and toe-diggers. Today's Groupon soothes your scraggy digits with $50 worth of services at Le Crème Nail Spa for $25. The bivalves of the coast will plotz in their shells when they hear tales of your perfectly pampered keratin. You can also use your Groupon toward Le Crème's threading ($15+), waxing ($10+), and brow and lash tinting ($16+) services.
A quaint, shabby-chic setting complete with antique furniture, a pretty patio, and chandeliers seems straight out of the Secret Garden, sans sad orphan story and with better-smelling lotions. Sink into the plush, marshmallow-like chairs for a La Bonne Vie pedicure ($58). You'll be treated to a replenishing soak strewn with rose petals and enhanced with milk and lavender essential oils. Warm booties will flush toxins from your kick dispensers, and a lower-leg massage will get the blood circulating through your newly rejuvenated walking sticks. If you choose Le Crème's classic mani-pedi ($45), the skilled nail pamperers will massage your knuckle wagons with hot cream and your choice of calming lavender or stimulating eucalyptus before a peppermint and sage salt scrub gently smoothes away dead skin.
Instead of an exhausting night out, gather with girlfriends for a spa party in Le Crème's posh settings. The space, which looks as though it was lifted from the pages of a fairy tale, regularly plays host to girly get-togethers and pampering parties. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
Daily Candy loves Le Crème Nail Spa:
- Duck into the serene space and take a load off while adorable estheticians in vintage aprons tend to your barking dogs. Decked in white and pastels, the place is very shabby chic: overstuffed floral-print chairs, antique furniture, and aged light fixtures…But the real draw is the services. – Daily Candy
- They were gracious from start to finish. We got relaxing treatments and lovely french manicures. The gals were super thorough, sweet and funny. They kept our glasses full of refreshing cucumber-infused water. We had a great time. – microstace, Citysearch
- I have been going to Le Creme since they opened, for over a year now, and I just love the place. It's such a calm and soothing atmosphere, the music is nice and mellow, and they always make sure to offer tea or cucumber water. And all the ladies that work there are really sweet, and I'm always happy when I leave. Plus, when random men compliment you on your manicure on the bus, that's saying something good. – redbirdie, Citysearch
La Crème Spa
Amid fluffy white chairs, snowy walls, and ornate chandeliers that create a serene, cloud-like atmosphere, La Créme’s trained aestheticians work tirelessly to rejuvenate weary bodies. Champions of back-to-nature beauty, the staffers administer treatments using only natural ingredients such as lavender essential oil, sea-salt scrubs, and fresh rose petals plucked from the mouths of local tango dancers. Contented sighs drift from patrons undergoing soothing mani-pedis, rising past gentle tea-tree cream waxes used to whisk away unwanted strands. Between gussying-up sessions, La Créme’s grooming gurus meticulously disinfect and sanitize each piece of equipment to ensure comfort and safety. A patio outside of the spa enables secluded relaxation bolstered by sprawling vines dripping purple flowers and gentle winds eager to whisper bits of celebrity gossip into the ears of unwinding guests.
