Like the appendix, fingernails serve no discernible biological function and—like the appendix—are often adorned with paint or Wite-Out during dull study halls. Glamorize aesthetically versatile appendage ends with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a manicure (a $20 value) and pedicure (a $35 value) at Polished Nail Salon in Cleveland Heights.
Polished Nail Salon's talented batch of nail artists and keratin tamers beautifies digits’ tappable ends using alpha-hydroxy acid treatments, almond masks, and botanically based extracts. The Polished pedicure begins with a warm foot soak that harnesses tea-tree oil, grapefruit extract, and an avocado lipid complex. After the toenails have been clipped or filed into battle spikes for upcoming Viking-rules football matches, a technician will exfoliate and moisturize each flesh-paddle before splashing toenails with a color or nonchromatic gloss of your choice. Waterless manicures use the same alpha-hydroxy acid treatment as the pedicure to rid overworked fingernails of dead skin and super-glued prank thimbles, and an almond and vitamin-E-infused mask keeps hands and nails from drying into gritty sandpaper. As with the pedicure, clients can opt for multicolored fingernails or subtly glossed finger tops.
