Like lawns or children, nails grow whether you're watching them or not. Baby your fingers with today's Groupon: for $35, you get two mani-pedis at The Pink Nail Spa in Arlington Heights (up to a $70 value).
Owner Martin Chang helms a squad of digit designers that pampers limbs with mani-pedi services amid candy-colored walls and fixtures. Appendages soak in a warm bath before nails and accompanying rubber duckies receive a file, buff, and pruning. Nail techs perform cuticle care to soften the protective layer and gently push it back to prevent hangnails before trimming off any that have already formed.
During the treatments, gentle kneads work arm and hand muscles weary from rigorously shaking desired answers out of a magic 8 ball. Finally, the keratin artisan splashes a coat of polish across finger and toe canvases, protecting the nail with a stylish suit of armor. The Pink Nail Spa swarms clients in yellow and pink-bubblegum tones, and plush pedicure thrones host a relaxing place to rest.
Though The Pink Nail Spa sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The Pink Nail & Spa
Flower murals and rose-colored walls draw guests into The Pink Nail & Spa like honeybees into a garden; cushy leather seats await them, as inviting as lush flowers. Guests plop comfortably into the chairs during manicures, pedicures, and waxing services. Creative Spa manicures and pedicures condition skin with elixirs infused with citrus oils, antioxidants, and vitamin E. Nail technicians also pamper the hands and feet with relaxing soaks and moisturizing treatments. During regular spa mani-pedis, the techs knead palms and soles and slough off expired skin with gentle exfoliation tools. Clients can also opt to pamper their whole bodies with more than a half-dozen types of massage therapy, including Swedish and deep-tissue treatments that melt pain, tension, and subcutaneous cheddar wheels.
