Ninety percent of all manicures are given to spies, whose hands are overworked by the intelligence world’s lengthy secret-handshakes. Disguise digits in style with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a manicure package for two at Plumberry Nail Spa (a $106 value). The package includes:

Plumberry Nail Spa nourishes extremities and spirits with eco-friendly nail products and complimentary refreshments, served in a clean, comforting spa space surrounded by local artwork and scrubbed and shined using hospital-grade sterilization equipment. Pairs of pals sip herbal tea and savor decadent candies from the complimentary tea and sweets bar as phalange-pampering professionals shape and buff nails to the height of hand and hoof health using brand-new, disposable nail tools. Mandarin-pear cuticle softener nourishes finger frames with aloe vera and Vitamin E, allowing cuticles to be gently corralled, while a dose of moisturizing lotion teams up with a steamy towel to infuse pores with purifying hydration and keep them from wilting. A soothing dip in lavender-scented paraffin seals in extra moisture and leaves hands with a soft and velvety finish capable of turning any handshake from awkward to awesome. Finished fingers can choose between a range of acclaimed polish brands including OPI, Butter London, and Essie, or opt for a natural vegan alternative to drape nails in a healthier hue. Finally, a series of smooth, sweltering stones perch atop overworked hand muscles, melting away tension caused by computer keyboards or lengthy commutes by monkey bar to leave extremities relaxed and limber.
Plumberry Nail Spa
At Plumberry Nail Spa, adroit aestheticians buff and pamper extremities with a mélange of eco-friendly and vegan spa products, as well as options from traditional salon brands. Sunlight streams in through large angled windows as clients recline on cushioned leather chairs and sip organic herbal teas. Manicures and pedicures each proffer a host of cosseting elements, from a callus-banishing lavender-aloe-vera exfoliating scrub to hot-towel wraps that open pores and expel toxins. During multistep European facials, organic ingredients imported directly from Hungary coddle frontispieces with potent concentrations of aromatics and nutrients. Plumberry also prioritizes hygiene by swapping traditional jet tubs for pedicure bowls and using fresh files and pumice bars on each client, which can be taken home after the nail service to maintain salon results or serve as backup lemon zesters. Artwork from Bay Area artists, illuminated by petite dangling lights, adorns the lavender walls and amuses eyes during beauty treatments.
Plumberry aims to tread lightly on the earth by using recycled packaging materials and energy-efficient appliances, as well as recycling and composting onsite. Its natural nail polish and organic skincare products eschew parabens, formaldehyde compounds, and eldritch curses.
