Painted nails protect body parts beautifully, much like golden hockey masks and bedazzled hazmat suits. Shine up digit helmets with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a manicure and pedicure at Queen Jane Nail Salon (a $32 value), valid at one of three Manhattan locations. The 28th Street location will be available starting March 1.
Queen Jane Nail Salon's skilled nail techs spruce up fingers and toes by filing nails and trimming cuticles into clean and neat shapes. Extremities unwind during a short massage that relieves stress caused by aggressive handshaking and walking barefoot on sidewalks paved with hot coals. Mani-pedis conclude with swipes of prismatic polish and a topcoat that protects and extends the life of new nail color.
Queen Jane Nail Salon
As the owner and queen bee of Queen Jane Nail Salon, Jane Liu helps make sure her staff is on top of its nail-taming game at each of the shop’s four area locations. Inspired by ancient Eastern therapies, each salon is decorated in a manner that’s designed to invoke a sense of calm. In the Zen-like spaces, the technicians coat nails in the latest trends in beauty including OPI Axxium, UV gel polish, and french powder tips. They also soften sore feet with green-tea- and marine-mineral-infused scrubs, lotions, and foot rubs that New York Magazine matter-of-factly referred to as "nap-inducing."
In addition to administering exceptional nail services, Jane’s team also performs custom massages as well as water-grass ear-candling treatments. Ancient in its roots, the specialized treatment eradicates earwax to boost mental clarity and the flow of oxygen to the brain’s inner ear gills.
