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 $50, you get a spa mani-pedi with shellac at Trenz Salon & Spa (a $95 value).
Trenz Salon & Spa accentuates the body’s appealing attributes with the help of an experienced staff. The 1.5- to 2-hour spa mani-pedi offers harried hands and fatigued feet a chance to spruce up their faded facades. Skilled nail technicians strip polished portraits and ease tepid people paws into a relaxing bath, where they can soak themselves or perfect doggie-paddle techniques. After resurfacing from their deep-sea sousing, a savory sugar scrub is massaged onto feet to exfoliate pores and sweeten the skin. Fingertips are then prepared for their shellacking, while a foot mask is applied to disguise tootsies on the run from style-stifling sneakers. Customers then choose from a palette of polishes, and shellac is brushed onto colored claws to prevent premature chipping, a process that can extend the life of the lacquer for up to two weeks.
