Biting your fingernails is a bad habit that nail technicians help prevent by shaping nails into brussels sprouts. Flaunt artistically crafted nails with today’s Groupon: for $32, you get a nailcare package (a $65 value) from Michelle at Salon Capri. The package includes the following:
- A manicure (a $20 value)
- A pedicure (a $35 value)
- A paraffin hand treatment (a $10 value)<p>
Salon Capri’s resident keratin guru Michelle harnesses 8 years of experience to transform drab talons into beautiful exoskeletal specimens during relaxing manicure and pedicure treatments. Michelle greets each nail individually, asking it about its shape preferences and favorite buttons to push, and then treats hands to a sumptuous massage. Next, each mitt dives into warm paraffin wax before sliding into toasty mittens, emerging more moisturized and ready for a coat of polish in a color of the client’s choice. Tootsies soak in warm bubble baths in order to exhibit maximum suppleness during cuticle trimming, nail shaping, buffing, and polishing. A thorough foot filing and sugar scrub help dry skin shrug off it mortal coils before dogs breath guttural sighs of relief as Michelle rewards them with a firm massage. Call ahead or hire a skywriter to schedule an appointment.
Victorian decor—an ornately framed wall mirror, a bronze chandelier, and imposing wooden bureaus at each styling station—sets the sophisticated tone at Salon Capri. The staff walks on a two-toned tile floor that complements the earthy colors surrounding them as they fashion new 'dos with alluring add-ons such as feather extensions for hair or ears that are slowly expanding into wings. Guests enjoy privacy during nail services: pedicures take place in a room behind a leopard-print curtain, where two chairs fill their foot baths with warm water, while hands receive massages at a sequestered pair of manicure tables.
