Much like beetles, our fingers have hard exoskeletons, which serve to protect soft tissue and, when brightly colored, warn predators that we're poisonous. Ward off hungry beasts with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a mani-pedi at Simply Charmed (a $60 value), located in Gig Harbor.
Simply Charmed refreshes and beautifies nails with soothing manicures and pedicures, perfecting the look of digits in a relaxing, boutique setting. The spa pedicure (a $35 value) takes place in a private room with an aesthetician, who soaks toes and follows up with nail shaping and buffing while you watch a movie to pass the time. A callus reduction and hot-stone foot massage set a tranquil stage for perfectly applied polish, and the combination of hot moisture packs for hands and feet and a heated wrap for necks turns pedicurees into a melted puddle of well-lacquered bliss.
Clients indulge their hands during the one-hour manicure (a $25 value), which freshens up finger shields with nail clipping, filing, and buffing. Cuticles are treated like royal cuticles, and an enzyme peel and hand scrub remove any skin cells not fully committed to nail beauty. To wind down the paw-prettifying procedure, hands and arms enjoy a massage with heated packs, after which nails receive their crowns of shiny polish and wander off to introduce themselves to society at the fingernail debutante ball.
