Contrary to popular belief and science, healthy human nails aren't supposed to grow. They should remain static, glossy, and the color of your choice. But most of us contracted a disease from playground equipment that makes our nails grow at alarming rates, lose their luster, cease to be our favorite color, and become unattractively translucent. While publicly funded scientists work a great amount of overtime (scientists make time and a half) on a vaccine for this disgusting plague, spas everywhere do their best to keep the epidemic in check and restore the nail to its natural condition. The nail specialists temporarily cure your fingernails and toenails (hence the name manicure and pedicure) in hope that one day science will discover a vaccine. Until then, you'll have to enjoy 43% off at an amazing salon.
You'd usually pay $20 for one cuticle cure. Today $20 will take care of all 18–25 of your cuticles: get your nails done and your toes polished for $20 at Mara's Salon. That's half off hand and foot service—a manicure and a pedicure—that you don't need to redeem on a single visit.
The clean and cheerful Hayes Valley salon, located at 112A Gough St., has comfortable, oversized chairs to make the pedi extra pleasant. Mara's attentive specialists soak your digits in an aromatic bath, then shape your nails, do cuticle detail, and give you a massage with warm lotion before drying your hands with a hot towel and glossing your nails.
Customers praise Mara's immaculate, relaxing space and talented, friendly service. Its outstanding services are already regarded as very affordably priced, and with today's Groupon, you'll be getting an even better value.
Grab a few girlfriends for a mani-pedi party, or pick up a few as gifts. The vast majority of people love gifts. Especially if those gifts makes their nails shine brighter than the sun.

- The ladies there are so sweet, and the salon is clean, comfortable, and relaxing, and I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. They have always treated me right, and are always flexible about scheduling... – Jason W.
- I love the overstuffed chairs...Everything is so clean and nice...The flower water and warm lotion has become a necessity to me. – Jen C.

The oversized styling mirrors at Mara's Salon reflect clients growing progressively more relaxed under the spell of the peace-inducing botanical aromas drifting through the studio. Nail techs spike mani-pedis with herbal tea, ylang-ylang oil, lavender salts, or a milk-and-honey blend; meanwhile, guests seated on leather armchairs or sofas gingerly nibble snacks and sip wine between hydrating lotion massages and paraffin dips. Staff supplement generous business hours with flexible off-hours scheduling, letting men and women work haircut, color, or waxing sessions into a tight schedule and meet the birds who come in to collect the salon's discarded hair for their nests each night.
