Watching paint dry can make people restless, especially when the paint covers a television screen or a car's windshield. Experience quick-drying dyes with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a spa mani-pedi at Pretty Woman Salon and Spa (a $70 value) in Oakville.
The aestheticians at Pretty Woman Salon and Spa take a med-spa approach to pampering the hands and feet of both ladies and gentlemen. The mani-pedi begins as spa specialists compose a freestyle rap about each guest's name before offering coffee or tea, then lead the way to a two-chair pedicure room equipped with a private foot shower. Aestheticians assess nail health prior to placing paws and hooves into a softening Gehwol soak, prepping nails and cuticles for a meticulous grooming while leaving calluses defenseless against a contouring file. After talons get gussied up for a hand model audition, a combination scrub and massage showers attention on appendages, boosting circulation with 5–10 minutes of bodywork from foot to knee and hand to elbow. Upon hearing extremities purr, nail techs then apply OPI polish in a choice of colour and kitten-attraction rating. Those seeking more luxurious adornment may upgrade to a shellac treatment for an additional fee.
