$45 for Two Lavender One-Hour Mani-Pedis ($100 Value)
During a one-hour mani-pedi, palms and feet soak in a solution of lavender sea salt before a lavender-scented scrub exfoliates the skin. A hand and foot massage and hot-towel treatment close the session.

Pure Lotus Day Spa & Nails
A long bench upholstered in a metallic Moroccan print stretches along one wall of Pure Lotus Day Spa & Nails; this is where ladies relax during the spa's signature nail treatments, and maybe even where they sip wine and champagne, since the spa is BYOB and the Volstead Act is rarely enforced anymore. The rest of the spa's decor is equally inviting, consisting as it does of animal-printed benches and velvety chaise lounges positioned around a flat-screen TV that plays a Sex and the City marathon all day long. Clients pry themselves away to indulge in the spa's services, which range from foot reflexology and chair massage to facials and waxing.
