If left untended, hands have been known to flee arms and take up residence with Addams families. Keep hands and feet from autonomy with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a mani-pedi with Jesse Bruner at Michael Christopher in Wilmington (up to an $80 value).
Named for its award-winning owner, Michael Christopher is a full-service salon and day spa, offering hair, nail, and skin treatments in a pampering boutique-style setting. Treat your five-pronged pals to a relaxing manicure ($20+) and pedicure ($50+) with licensed nail-nurturer and reflexologist Jesse Bruner, who will deftly rid them of their winter blues. As you enjoy a complimentary beverage from the salon’s coffee bar, your finger-mitts and toe-docks will enjoy a calming soak, deep exfoliation, and moisturizing treatment, allowing them to unwind and rethink their plans to divorce your feet. Neglected nail beds and compromised cuticles are then cleaned, clipped, and shaped before being buffed with the polish of their choice, and rushing to get a glimpse of themselves in the mirror.
Mollycoddle your finger-shingles and toe-awnings in the sophisticated confines of Michael Christopher’s private mani-pedi room, outfitted with lush colors, atmospheric lighting, and chic décor. The tranquil treatment and peaceful salon will have guests leaving relaxed and ready to sport spring sandals and fingerless motorcycle gloves with pride.
Jesse Bruner Nails
Licensed aesthetician and nail technician Jesse Bruner artfully prunes and dresses digits with colorful polish inside Michael Christopher Salon, which was voted Best Day Spa in Delaware Today's Best of Delaware 2010. Wielding products from such brands as OPI and Young Nails, Jesse first cleanses fingers before filing their caps into sleek frames or US president silhouettes. Tools then gently ease cuticles off the nail, paving the way for brushes to paint on new hues or for buffers to impart gaze-grabbing shine. During the pedicure, feet can fashion bubble mustaches in a whirlpool spa as toenails undergo a clipping. Both overgrown cuticles and calluses flee while Jesse sloughs away superfluous skin, and an exfoliating scrub hydrates gams from the calves down. Finally, a massage with body butter saps tension from arches, and polish covers reposing toes in vibrant shades.
