Though human nails are well matched against itchy bug bites, they are virtually useless when confronted with the plastic packaging of a Wings DVD box set. Fortify your claws with today’s Groupon to Salon 134 West in Palatine. Choose between the following options:
- For $17, you get one no-chip manicure (a $35 value).
- For $49, you get three no-chip manicures (up to a $105 value).
Salon 134 West’s nail technicians chrome digits with Creative Nail Design Shellac for durable coats of shining color. During a 45-minute manicure, the attentive nail technician trims and files nails before painting vibrant hues onto fingers and then wet-setting them with the aid of unemployed sun rays napping in a UV lamp. Nails emerge with dry, shining coats of lacquer that can retain their chip-free status for 10–14 days, enduring even the most competitive Tiddlywinks tournaments. Patrons can choose to add the miniature berets of a french manicure for an additional $5. When redeeming a triad of manicures, be sure to arrive with nails free of previous Shellac, as there is an additional $5 charge for removal. The chrome is quickly and easily cleared with remover wraps.
Though Salon 134 West offers discounts online, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.
Ross Salon & Blow Dry Bar
Every stylist who wields shears or makeup at Ross Salon & Blow Dry Bar has been handpicked for the ability to employ multiple styling techniques and cross over from cutting to coloring to straightening without missing a beat. At many salons, stylists pass clients from one stylist to another in a sort of styling assembly line, all reinterpreting the hairstyle for themselves and moving away from the initial vision for the style. Rather than distorting hairstyles through such a process, Ross Salon & Blow Dry Bar pairs clients with a single stylist for the entire session, allowing stylists to bring their original artistic vision to fruition while saving clients the trouble of having to explain their hair dreams ad nauseam.
