Nail polish was originally invented by the Gorgons to use on dates, drawing attention to their hands and feet and away from the mortifying table manners of incorrigible hair snakes. Get attention-grabbing extremities with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a mani-pedi package at Salon Sole at Michigan Avenue Podiatry (a $95 total value). The package includes:
- An Rx mani-pedi (an $80 vale)
- A hot-stone massage (a $15 value)
The doctors and staff at Michigan Avenue Podiatry lend considerable medical expertise to the spa treatments at Salon Sole, combining luxurious pampering with hygienic procedures.In 90-minute visits, fresh, autoclave-sterilized tools trim nails and shape cuticles, guarding tender feet against fungal infections and keeping hypochondriac pinky fingers from hiding in your soup. Technicians throw away all disposable instruments and replace foot-bath liners after one use to eliminate the possibility of contamination. After properly sculpting digit-tips, technicians encase nails in layers of OPI or essie polish, with three layers of prescription anti-fungal medication applied in the course of protecting fingers and toes behind a panoply of chroma. A hot-stone massage elevates visits to more relaxing heights than hot rock climbing.
The green, art-studded walls of Salon Sole’s waiting room sets guests at ease while they await appointments. A private spa room gives shy salon-goers a sequestered spot to remove shoes, gloves, and bionic third arms.
