Like Jacksons, fingers and toes perform best in groups of five and when dressed in matching colors. Pamper your appendage quintets with today’s Groupon to The Nail Shop and The Lounge Nail Spa, redeemable at both of The Nail Shop's locations in Oakland and Walnut Creek and at The Lounge Nail Spa's Berkeley location. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get a signature pedicure (a $20 value) and sea-salt foot scrub (a $5 value; a $25 total value).
- For $25, you get a deluxe manicure (up to a $17 value) and deluxe pedicure (a $35 value; up to a $52 total value).
Surrounded by soft curtains and opulent damask accents, the skilled technicians at The Nail Shop and The Lounge Nail Spa dote on digits and pamper skin with a range of luxurious mani-pedi services. Help feet to impress snooty Persian rugs with silky smoothness thanks to a sea-salt scrub, which harnesses the power of exotic salts and natural oils to shed dull skin and infuse lasting moisture. Next, an aesthetician refines cuticles and shapes toenails before a massage and pumice treatment leaves feet feeling sleek and soothed. Clients can lend toes a shine that doesn't require soaking them in mercury by enlisting a buffing treatment, or choose from a kaleidoscope of polish colors to paint the nails.
Alternatively, deluxe mani-pedis step up the services with aromatic scents and extra hydration. An exfoliating crystalline citrus rub energizes hands for Broadway shadow-puppet performances before nails and cuticles are nourished and nurtured. Hydrating vitamin E cream accompanies a soothing hand massage, while a warm towel wrap melts away superfluous stress. Meanwhile, an aloe vera pumice scrub and a peppermint mask polish and moisturize tarnished tootsies. Pedi pros perform a lavish 10-minute foot massage with a scented lotion, chosen from aromas such as mango and coconut to invoke memories of clutching one's first mai tai with their feet. For the finale, the nail specialist lavishes the extremities with a dose of vibrant polish or polish-free buff and a warm towel wrap.
