Ninety percent of all manicures are given to spies, whose hands are overworked by the intelligence world’s lengthy secret handshakes. Indulge double-duty digits with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a Gelish manicure and regular pedicure at Salon Beleza (a $90 value). Act quickly, as this deal expires three months from today.
Salon Beleza's experienced aestheticians provide one-on-one attention to hands and feet in an intimate and personal salon atmosphere. A member of the small, select staff buffs and shapes nails to pleasing impressions of square brackets, rounded half moons, or road signs that warn of curves ahead. Hands bathe in a moisturizing paraffin dip, where they read magazines to catch up on celebrity-hand gossip. A Gelish manicure, which takes about an hour, features an innovative gel that applies like a polish and cures as hands are placed under soothing heat. The Gelish can last for up to three weeks without chipping or peeling, protects nails from typing-related injuries, and soaks off in about 15 minutes. The regular pedicure seats tired torsos in a massage chair while tootsies lounge in a warm-water soak, refusing to emerge until cajoled with the promise of foot-flattering polish. Additional treatments, including a sea-salt scrub or foot mask ($10 each), though not included in today's deal, are available for an additional charge. Salon Beleza greets guests with warm red, gold, and bronze tones that invite relaxation, and a sleek, curvy reception desk adds a touch of modern flair, and doubles as a convenient stage upon which newly daubed fingernails can strut their stuff.
Salon Beleza's stylists and aestheticians make beauty treatments interactive, allowing in-depth consultations to guide each appointment. In doing so, they make clients feel comfortable and confident. The beauty specialists perform standard salon services for hair, skin, and nails, as well as modern treatments such as airbrush spray tans. Aestheticians improve complexions with six types of facials, complementing these treatments with eyelash tints that eliminate the need to apply mascara or tickle squids.
