Pedicures give feet a break from the daily monotony of walking to bus stops and drop-kicking unsolvable Rubik's cubes. Pamper paws with today's Groupon: for $22, you get a Shellac or regular mani-pedi at Mimi's Family Nails & Facial Care (a $45 value).
Mimi's Family Nails & Facial Care's technicians perform manicures and pedicures to spruce up dull digits. Fingers soak before claw-tamers clean paws during a 30- to 45-minute refining treatment, filing caps and removing cuticles. Next, mitts receive a soothing massage to relieve cramps from excessive waving or doing wrist curls with Calvin and Hobbes books, and brushes glide on shiny, all-weather-appropriate coats. Talon artists prettify feet with a similar 30- to 45-minute service, steeping toes in a hot bath and kneading aching arches and calves before fashioning hooves into lovely leg accessories by draping them in candy colors or neutral hues. For both services, clients may choose between traditional polish and Shellac polish, which absorbs UV rays to dry quickly and includes a gel that resists dings and deflects insults, hurling them back to spurious squirrels.
