Without nails, hard-to-reach spots would forever itch and digits would be too delicate to put on finger-puppet renditions of Die Hard. Appreciate your multifunctional features with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a manicure and pedicure from Nails by Lori at Renaissance Hair and Nail Design (a $60 value).
As Renaissance's resident nail artist, Lori Gonzales wields thoroughly sanitized equipment to trim nails and dress them up in flattering coats of color. Feet ease into a tub padded with disposable liners as they undergo a toe-coddling pedicure, and fingertips receive similarly luxurious treatment above sea level as Lori deftly swabs nails with eye-grabbing shades of polish. Because she emphasizes safety through sterility, Lori employs mostly single-use tools.
Renaissance welcomes its guests into a quaint blue-and-purple house that was erected in the late 1800s. Described by an 805County.com feature as a "charming, historic Victorian cottage," the building becalms relaxation seekers with mounted artwork, chandeliers with hanging gems, and a blue-tiled fireplace. As they submit their phalanges for pampering, clients can peer out of the station's window onto the adjoining rose garden, where bumblebees buzz, hummingbirds hum, and shark attacks are a nonissue.
