Biting your fingernails is a bad habit that nail technicians help prevent by shaping nails into brussels sprouts. Flaunt artistically crafted nails with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a chocolate mani-pedi package at The Nail Forum in Glendale (an $80 value). The package includes:
- A chocolate mani-pedi
- Hot chocolate massage oil with hot stones
- Hot-towel wrap
- Paraffin treatment for feet
- Keratin gloves for hands
The beauticians at The Nail Forum lavish hands and feet with natural mani-pedis bolstered by chocolate oils. Treatments begin with nail trimming and cuticle conditioning, which combine to keep fingers and toes prim and protective layers of skin in tip-top shape for speed-typing. Next, spa technicians massage hot chocolate oil enriched with vitamins A and C into world-weary appendages as heated stones and a hot-towel wrap melt away stress. To spruce up feet, chocolate mud and a chocolate scrub exfoliate foot surfaces before a paraffin treatment softens heels like boiling water softens a dry swimming-pool noodle. Meanwhile, hands revel within a moisturizing keratin glove designed to protect against bacteria before a choice of polish lends digits colorful flair. Customers can upgrade to a longer-lasting gel manicure for an additional $14.
The Nail Forum
The nail technicians slather their clients’ hands and feet with raspberry scrub, green tea body mud, and lemons during manicures at pedicures. The beauty pros also rub a sea salt body scrub across pelts for full body softening and decorate fuzzy chins, legs, and arms with warm wax before swiftly evicting unwanted hairs.
