Victorian ladies would often resort to cabernet soaks, multicolored thimbles, and postage stamps to achieve brighter nails. Transform your talons with today's Groupon: for $50, you get five manicures at Pascal Pour Elle, with two north-suburban locations in Glencoe and Glenview (a $110 value).
Pascal Pour Elle's style masters reshape and revitalize nails, in addition to doling out a parade of services that earned them recognition from Chicago magazine. Each 30-minute classic manicure (a $22 value each) shapes the nail and cuticle into pleasing shapes, such as ovals, rounded rectangles, or pine trees. Nail doyens administer several coats of one color; two-toned French manicures are available for an extra $5. Groupon purchasers also receive 30% off on one pedicure (normally $47, an extra $7 for French) when scheduled alongside a manicure, so fingers can easily match toes without donning glove stilettos.
The Glencoe salon's lush digs envelop clients in extravagant décor, its sconces and rich woodwork lending a regal air to each service. Glenview goes for a more relaxing vibe, surrounding guests in creamy neutrals and comfy seating so that guests can forget all about their mounting Monopoly debts.
