Before combat, the knights of Camelot would file their nails to sharp points in order to terrify their enemies and successfully strum trusty battle lutes. Honor an ancient ritual with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a Shellac manicure and a regular pedicure at Miles Salon and Spray Tanning (a $70 value).
Inside Miles' full-service-salon environs, a tropical mixture of wicker and palm fronds greets clients before they stroll along bare-wood floors to the waiting talon technicians for a pedicure and a Shellac manicure. Undo the daily dings of competitive typewriting during the approximately 90-minute mani-pedi. Keratin artisans swaddle mitts and tootsies in hot towels before clipping cuticles, shaping pincers, and sloughing off dead skin with a thorough scrub. Paws and hooves are tenderly massaged by nimble fingers, before toe ungues are slathered in regular polish, and hand claws in one of 24 colors of Shellac polish, designed to resist chipping and last longer than back-alley manicures messily performed in the dead of night.
Miles Salon and Spray Tanning
At Miles Salon and Spray Tan, it’s all about color. The team of stylists and technicians enlivens both hair and hide with professional-grade hues. After styling cuts to suit facial features and personality, they can mist physiques in shades of gold with full-body spray tans. Splashes of artful polish often follow during mani-pedis before a quick waxing evicts unwanted body hair and its dreams of being woven into a shirt.
