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 $45, you get an aroma manicure and a milk-and-honey pedicure (a $93 value) at Tamara Spa in Farmington Hills. Named one of the best spas in Detroit by Hour Detroit in 2010, Tamara Spa has been saving Detroit's jeopardized digits and parched pores from cosmetic cataclysm for more than 30 years. Clients enjoy the attention of caring professionals in an earthy, relaxing environment. The luxurious milk-and-honey pedicure ($65) proffers much-needed pampering for oft-treaded soles, soaking feet in a milk-and-honey whirlpool before an aesthetician sloughs off hard cells and calluses, massaging life into the infant skin. The aroma manicure ($28) bathes carpals and metacarpals in essential oils before infusing the cuticles and nails with herbal extracts to sate desiccated flesh, concluding soothingly with a hand massage or pompously with a recited treatise on the numerous benefits of not picking one’s nose during a 60 Minutes interview.
Tamara Spa was listed in the Best of Detroit by Hour Detroit in 2010. It was a 2007 fifth-place winner and a 2010 nominee for best day spa in WDIV's 4 The Best Guide. The spa has been featured in Allure, Mademoiselle, InStyle, Vogue, and Complete Woman. SpaFinders and nine Citysearchers give Tamara Spa an average rating of four stars.

Tamara Spa + Wellness
At Tamara Spa + Wellness—named one of the Best Spas in Detroit by Hour Detroit in 2010, 2013 and 2013 Best Manicure and Pedicure—the licensed staff has been saving jeopardized digits and parched pores with in-depth treatments for 30 years. Comprising 10,000 square feet, the spa boasts nearly 30 private treatment rooms in which to enjoy soothing massages enhanced with soft lighting and soothing music. Or, try the rain forest water journey treatment—a therapeutic punch of eucalyptus steam made all the more serene by the addition of falling water and the gentle harmonies of an all-toucan jazz trio. Candlelit whirlpool tubs invite bodies to soak away inches or stress in baths filled with milk and honey or firming and toning tonics, and miniature pedicure tubs welcome feet to soak away walking woes with help from soothing sea salts and oils. A dozen or so facials see the spa's aestheticians personalizing each step to suit skin's specific needs, leading a writer for Spa Magazine to declare, "My skin never looked and felt so good."
