Nail polish was invented around 3000 BC in ancient China—a fact that’s doubly remarkable considering that human fingernails were only invented last year. Celebrate this admirable foresight with today’s Groupon to Merle Norman. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get a Shellac manicure (a $30 value).
- For $25, you get a traditional manicure and pedicure (a $52 value).<p>
Merle Norman’s two accredited aestheticians draw from an armory of American-made products to beautify weary appendages with an array of services. Glossy Shellac manicures slather nails in specialized gel polish with a stalwart formula that resists chips and scratches until the mid-life crisis of a calendar page or up to two weeks. Traditional manicure-and-pedicure sessions whittle away ragged nail edges and tamp down overgrown cuticles. Technicians buff away calluses accumulated from walking, running, and long shifts spent demolishing sandcastles. Brushes glide smoothly across nails, dappling toes and fingers with layers of vibrant lacquer from brands such as OPI.
Merle Nethercutt Norman was one of the quintessential self-made women of the early 20th century, pioneering not only a way for ladies to own their own businesses but also the means by which one purchases makeup. Ms. Norman believed in trying a product out before you bought it, an idea that still stands 80 years later at the hundreds of independently owned makeup studios that bear her name. The beauty consultants manning the sales floor are trained in pairing each customer with suitable skincare and makeup goods, offering to test out shades to ensure they enhance the client’s coloring and won’t clash with the parrots on their shoulders. All products are made in the United States and are used in the stores’ in-house treatments, which aim to make over faces and render glowing complexions.
