Though pearl prospecting is a lucrative labor, scooping sand is tough on delicate finger and toe-diggers. Soothe your scraggy digits with today's deal. For $22, you get one express mani-pedi at Tootsies the Nail Shoppe (a $45 value). Redeem this spring-hatched Groupon at the three Tootsies locations in Washington Park and Highlands (not valid at Rebelle) before it expires on June 15. CityVoter named it a top five Best Manicure and Pedicure winner in 2007–09, and 5280 Magazine readers named it Top Mani-Pedi in 2007 and 2008; likewise, Denver's Channel 7 named Tootsies an A-list winner in 2009.
Tiptoe into Tootsies and you'll be can-canning out the door, keeping stride with all-too-frequent impromptu chorus lines. Using diligently sanitized tools, nail maidens will form fit your nails to fully complement each of your phalanges. Every digit gets its cuticles trimmed briskly, calluses filed cleanly, and surfaces polished so thoroughly that any nail will suffice as a substitute SOS beacon.
With a friendly, experienced staff and a cozy, decorative interior, Tootsies gives visitors a sense of familiarity typically reserved for shadows and reflections. The inside is inspired by Breakfast at Tiffany's with its retro posters and teal walls. Since friends don't let friends into public spaces with unkempt hands and feet, tell a deserving acquaintance about today's deal. Invite your mom or dad, sister or brother, girlfriend or boyfriend, or female or male wrestling coach to the wildest mani-pedi party in recent memory. There is a hard limit of one Groupon per person, so each person will have to pick up his or her own.
Services by appointment only; call ahead to schedule. This Groupon expires June 15, 2010.
Tootsies the Nail Shoppe was in the top five on CityVoter for Best Manicure and Pedicure in 2007, 2008, and 2009. Nails Magazine featured Tootsies, and readers voted it Top Manicure & Pedicure in 5280 Magazine's Top of the Town 2007 and 2008 issues:
- This retro-cool nail salon, complete with Audrey Hepburn posters and fancy teal walls, is hard to beat for more reasons than one. We appreciate the salon's focus on hygiene—no jets in the pedi tubs, and new files for every customer. We also love the fact that the manis and pedis seem to last a week longer than the ones we've gotten at the quickie places in town. – 5280 Magazine
- Though the design of the shop is ornate, Tootsies is at its core all about simplicity. The basic concept the sisters came up with for the store can be summed up in a few words: sanitary, fun, cute, and quick. – Angela Lu, Nails
- Great service, everybody is lovely and the polish lasts forever! It has such a wonderful atmosphere and a fun place to go! – Anonymous, Insider Pages
- This is the best place to go for a quick, inexpensive, great pedicure...They have all the great OPI colors. The shop is very clean and all of the tools including the foot files are brand new for each client...Two perfectly painted toes up! – Tina C., Yelp
