Nails provide a bodily canvas for self-expression, much like foreheads provide a bodily canvas for sticker collections. Showcase originality with today's Groupon: for $22, you get a Rock Star toes or a Hollywood toes gel nail treatment at Nails by Rubie, inside Strictly French Salon in Danville (a $45 value).
Nails by Rubie's manicure maven employs her 17 years of experience to outfit digit tips for up to six weeks with two 25-minute gel nail services. During the Rock Star toes treatment, Rubie paints nails with any color of vibrant glitter, and during the Hollywood toes treatment, sheathes them in a shimmering white french tip. After a quick prep and bounce into the salon's velcro wall, Rubie deftly glazes the gel over the nail surfaces, sprinkling tips with glitter before washing a lamp's UV rays over each toe cap to set the treatment. Typically, the gel cures in 90 seconds, 89 seconds longer than the world record for parakeet juggling. Those whose toes would like to indulge with a complete pedicure can do so for an additional $20. For ideas and design inspiration, peruse some of Rubie's past work displayed on her site and Facebook page.
