What You'll Get
For decades, spa treatments were performed at Greasy Gus's All-You-Can-Eat Barbecue Pit and Nail Shoppe. Today's Groupon gives a much-needed alternative. For $45, new clients get a signature manicure and pedicure at Roula's Nail Spa (an $80 value). Roula's was Nails Magazine's 2005 pick for Salon of the Year in the country.
The first thing many people notice about Roula's is how clean it is. Owner Roula Nassar uses a medical-grade decontamination system to shield you from the seasonal waves of colds and flus. All metal implements go through the same debris-removal process and sterilization center that the implements at your dentist go through. All other tools are disposable, and every spa pedicure station gets cleaned then disinfected, right down to the water lines built into the chairs. Despite all this fussy cleanliness, Roula's fosters an upscale, Zen-like atmosphere that will have you at ease and zoning almost immediately upon entering.
With the back of your knee the only dirty thing left in the room, you'll be free to relax while Roula's skilled, experienced technicians pamper your hand-toes and foot-fingers. They'll also put a complimentary cocktail or cappuccino in whatever hand or foot is free at the moment and not wrapped in paraffin. There are more than 25 aroma therapeutic scents for the signature mani-pedi, including Warm Milk and Honey, Sweet Red Rose, White Tea and Ginger, Mediterranean Fig and Vanilla, Mint Chocolate Truffles, and Orchid Coconut Milk. A heated herbal head and neck wrap accompanies all treatments, so you'll be off in your own little pleasant-smelling, chocoholic-martini-fueled world. To help you return to a world where people aren't constantly massaging your hands and feet, Roula's will ease your parting with a home-care package that includes your own buffer, nail file, and a mini-bottle of Roula's nail lacquer so that you can touch up your chips and keep your mani-pedi alive long after you leave.
The limit is one Groupon per new client, but you can buy extras for any friends who use their untamed toenails to sleep upside down from your ceiling.
- Nowhere in Houston will you find such great service and cleanliness!!! They emphasize on sanitation and customer service. The price is well worth the piece [sic] of mind. Everyone was extremely friendly and thoughtful from the time I walked in the door and made sure that I was comfortable the entire time – Anonymous, Insider Pages
