Fast-typing fingers and fast-tightroping toes need all the love and pampering of regular fingers and toes; they just need it faster. Treat speedy digits to an express mani-pedi with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a spa manicure with a paraffin dip and pedicure at Miss Saigon Nail Bar (a $40 value) in Tukwila.
Miss Saigon Nail Bar’s savvy staff indulges extremities with soothing manicures and mollycoddling pedicures in a comforting and social environment. During the deluxe manicure ($15), hands enjoy a heated soak, along with a cuticle trim and nail filing to shape keratin cubes into refined rectangles or eye-popping hexagons. A calming massage then teases finger tension into oblivion before a choice of prettifying polishes accentuates the figure of each nail. As a skin-revitalizing bonus, the manicure finishes with an aromatic paraffin dip, which submerges each finger farm in liquid wax to relieve aches and pains, restore moisture, and bestow upon each hand the rare opportunity to high-five itself. The classic pedicure ($25) begins by soaking toes in a clean, pipeless tub to leave backup fingers beaming with a sea-salt glow, and then shaping each toenail and trimming each cuticle. After ankle paws are semi-spruced, a massage renders them stress-free, and a polish enables them to enliven a drab office cubicle with more facility than a puff-painted calculator.
Miss Saigon Nail Bar invites each client to sip wine ($6 for glass of red or white, $7 for mimosa or glass of champagne) as their limbs are pruned and polished. While savoring beverages or waiting for appointments, patrons can chat with friendly staffers in a spacious lounge environment capable of pampering large parties of people, ideal for relaxing nights out or impending stampedes.
Miss Saigon Nail Bar
Wine, a common ingredient in most women’s days out, is the centerpiece of Miss Saigon Nail Bar’s treatments. Rows of reds, whites, and bubblies are prominently displayed on shelves facing the salon’s manicure stations, creating a wine-bar salon aesthetic that encourages guests to spend the day luxuriating in glasses of their favorite vintage while technicians groom nails. The staff builds upon the wine’s relaxing influence during treatments by incorporating indulgent add-ons such as paraffin dips and chip-free Shellac polish. Through an archway in the spa, guests make themselves comfortable on salmon-colored pedicure benches, soaking feet in bronze footbaths filled, like the sneakers of self-conscious skunks, with aromatic petals. As patrons wait for freshly painted nails to dry, they can sip wine while drinking in the open, laid-back atmosphere by lounging beside the fireplace or idly watching the flurry of activity in the fish tank.
