Palm reading provides vague answers about where a man is going, but the art of foot reading conjures undeniable proof that he just walked through wet cement. Treat feet to a healthy future with today's Groupon to The French Manicure in McDonough. Choose between the following options:
- For $19, you get a classic manicure and mini pedicure (a $40 value).
- For $29, you get a deluxe spa manicure and pedicure (a $72 value).
The nimble hands of proprietor and master nail technician Julie Gentry and her talented staff refine rough edges, massage limb-ends, and paint vibrant OPI polish onto nails. In the 75-minute classic manicure and mini pedicure, a nail-tender clips nail fringes that overgrow their pastures, reins in ragged cuticles, and wears calluses down into a fine dust that blows away as freely as a term paper's title page on a gusty day. A mini massage relaxes the coiled musculature of hands and feet as nails don the vivid war paint of OPI polish. Alternatively, opt for the 90-minute deluxe spa mani-pedi, in which hot towels encase hands and feet before they receive a massage, a salt scrub excavates dead skin cells from the graveyards in the valleys between knuckles, and a mask refreshes dull skin. The treatment culminates with a paraffin treatment that leaves paws silky and reduces the friction that starts tragic fires during lively shadow-puppet performances.
The French Manicure
Seasoned technician Julie Gentry, a knowledgeable member of the Creative Nail Design collective, heads The French Manicure's multifaceted staff of stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists. Crew members adeptly perform spa and salon services, sculpting tresses during hairstyling sessions and kneading away knots or extraterrestrial body-snatchers masquerading as knots during Swedish and deep-tissue massages. Exposed-brick walls bedecked with artwork encircle the skincare room, where aestheticians regale clients with cleansing facials and slimming seaweed body wraps. Thorough manicures and pedicures revivify clients' nails, and waxing services erase unwanted fuzz from faces, legs, arms, and hidden arms.
