Fingernails deserve respect for all the work they do, including such acts as opening packages, scraping dirt from surfaces, and scratching chalkboards to confuse courting banshees. Give a nod to industrious nails with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a no-chip manicure and a classic pedicure at Savi Hair Studio, Tan & Nails in Elmwood Park (a $66 value).
Inside the recently remodeled Savi Hair Studio, Tan & Nails, staffers apply chip-free polish designed to dry almost instantly and last up to two weeks. Each no-chip manicure integrates a nail shaping, cuticle trim, and colored polish for a transformation more elegant than a chameleon changing the color of its bowtie. During the classic pedicure, clients relax in specialty chairs within a private room. Whirlpool baths soften the toesies, just as baby-dinosaur footprints soften paleontologists’ hearts, before glamour gurus shape toenails, exfoliate skin, and apply a new hue.

Savi Hair Studio, Tan & Nails
The staffers at Savi Hair Studio, Tan & Nails know that a grumbling stomach can ruin a relaxing spa day as surely as it can ruin a congressional hearing on manners. That’s why they've designed the six-hour Day of Beauty to include a light lunch in between an aromatherapy facial, mani-pedi, shampoo and style, and makeup application. But even with a meal break, this package still can't claim to be a comprehensive survey of the studio's specialties, which also include Swedish and sports massages, bikini waxing, and tanning in a standup booth.
