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 $30, you get the deluxe mani-pedi at Salon Palomo (a $70 value).
Salon Palomo's resident nail artists pamper appendages inside a 3,000-square-foot Paul Mitchell Focus salon. The deluxe mani-pedi readies nails with a buff, file, and shaping, much how ancient Greek warriors readied their burnished bronze shields for battles with Mothra. An exfoliating scrub then lifts away digits' redundant layers, and a mask seals in skin-sleekening moisture. Finally, staffers soothe top and bottom tensomes with aromatic oils before brushing on polish to match a favorite outfit or mysteriously monochromatic mood ring.
A Paul Mitchell Focus salon, Salon Palomo employs more than 20 stylists who unleash expert skills on coiffures, garnering a Caller-Times Best of the Best award in 2010. For haircuts, the salon’s savvy stylists first wash customers’ hair to remove any lingering dinge or emotional ties to its previous style. They can also swathe locks in a high-end protein treatment. A complimentary color consultation with a mane maintainer allows head strings to ponder a new hue for disguising grays and intimidating snakes. Relaxing and beautifying services extend to full body waxing, nail art, and eyelash perms.
Newly expanded to 3,000 square feet, Salon Palomo ensconces guests in aristocratic environs with gold drapery, crown-molding-topped cabinetry, warm metallic hues, a sparkling chandelier, and mirrors that speak with Elizabethan accents.
