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 $40, you get an I Deserve It! pedicure and ion foot detox at The Pure Escape on Corydon Avenue (an $80 value).
The Pure Escape's accommodating aestheticians preen dilapidated digits into a state of burnished beauty with an one-hour I Deserve It! pedicure. Let ungainly feet shed their awkward phase in a sweet-scented foot soak, emerging from the overall treatment as twin swans free of gnarly nail edges, overgrown cuticles, and dishpan calluses. A buttery massage and colourful polish close the act, which is complemented by a 45-minute ionic detox foot spa treatment. Believed to ease blights such as headaches, fatigue, and emotional imbalance, the footbath replaces negative ions with positive ones, wresting toxins from the feet with the ferocity of a Carthaginian war elephant. Following a brief foot massage, a therapist will evaluate the bath water to judge the source of the toxins and foretell how many metric tons of ice cream you'll need to survive the apocalypse.
