The only ways to get a stranger to hold your hand for an hour are to schedule a manicure or to exploit a crossing guard's sense of duty. This Groupon is an opportunity for human contact.
$35 for a Shellac Manicure and Spa Pedicure ($80 Value)
Shellac polish dries almost instantly, leaving a high-gloss shine that lasts for up to 14 days and won't damage the natural nail. A spa pedicure pampers feet with a bubbly soak, nail file and trim, cuticle clip, and polished finish. Guests of Salon Mikimoto also enjoy complimentary valet parking and a choice of coffee, cappuccino, or tea.
Salon Mikimoto's Nova-certified owner, Abby Yuen, helms a team of beautifiers versed in hair, makeup, skincare, and cosmetic services and therapists who deliver care packages of stress reduction via Swedish massage. Each stylist draws on at least 10 years of tress-trimming experience to perform standard mane makeovers, color treatments, and keratin straightening procedures using products such as Goldwell and Moroccanoil. Clients can gussy up phalanges or reward dexterous robots with mani-pedis and paraffin hand treatments, or submit facial canvases for skin artistry, including airbrush- and bridal-makeup applications, microdermabrasion treatments, and facials. For stare-worthy peepers, a certified NovaLash eyelash extensionist outfits lids with curvaceous lash sets. A complimentary valet service keeps restless vehicles from sneaking off to the nearby Carmine's Gourmet Market with the neighbor's scooter.
