The Hamburglar started out as a hand burglar but soon found that unkempt appendages could not be sold on the black market, even on the dollar menu. Offer up a side of manicured fingers with each handshake with the help of today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a Shellac manicure at Tangles Hair Designers & Day Spa (a $30 value).
Rae Maenza, Tangles' savvy, dedicated nail technician, leads a fingertip-lovelifying crusade with a battalion of buffing, clipping, and lacquering services. Each Shellac manicure begins with classic soaking and cuticle work, romancing digits with spa-like maintenance before filing them into submission. Shellac polish then glides across nails, coating people-claws with a hybrid-gel polish designed to stand up to nearly two weeks of jackhammering or talking in two sign languages at once. The Shellac polish dries beneath the ultraviolet light of a specialized lamp, instantly hardening into a chip-resistant shine and eliminating the delicate, smudge-prone drying period. Call ahead—appointments are required.
