Nail polish was invented around 3000 BC in ancient China—a fact that's doubly remarkable considering that human fingernails were only invented last year. Celebrate this admirable foresight with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a spa manicure and pedicure at S. Salon & Spa (a $60 value).
S. Salon & Spa's aestheticians pamper appendages in chic environs adorned with abstract murals and modern art. After patrons receive a warm greeting, beverage, and hors d'oeuvres, a team of expert nail beautifiers eases them into a manicure and pedicure as luxurious as a piggyback ride from Louis XIV. Hot towels and a hand massage help a rejuvenating mask penetrate phalanges, and a specialized oil banishes cuticles. A hardy coat of OPI, Essie, or Orly polish cloaks nails in a lively pink or crimson hue with the bull-taunting power of a matador's Camaro. Feet indulge in a soothing dip in a whirlpool bath filled with fragrant eucalyptus salts, and a lavender scrub polishes away dead skin cells. A mask, hot towel, massage, and heartfelt pep talk reinvigorate legs from sole to shin, and a coat of polish grants toes a vibrant luster.
S. Salon & Spa
Experienced aesthetician Esther Losada anchors S. Salon & Spa. Coming from a professionally trained background in Redken Exchange, she pampers bodies from head to heels in environs adorned with abstract murals and modern art. After patrons receive a warm greeting, a skilled beautifier ushers them off for the hair, skin, or massage service of their choice. Facials packed with beneficial ingredients, such as amino acids, essential minerals, and peptides, soak into faces, forging increased circulation and a reduction in fine lines. Tense muscles find relief in massages, which harness Swedish, acupressure, or chakra-aligning techniques to dissipate tension that accumulates while working out inside a human-size hamster wheel. The expert nail beautifiers treat digits to refining mani-pedis crowned in OPI or Essie polishes and backed by pampering extras such as hot-towel treatments, hand massages, and softening oils and creams.
