Palm readers predict their clients' future by studying the lines on their skin, the calluses on their fingers, and the fortune cookies clenched in their fists. Rewrite the story of your extremities with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a french manicure with Shellac gel polish at Trix Spa in Richmond (a $55 value).
At Trix Spa, certified nail technicians imbue lacklustre digits with durable hues and ornate designs. French manicures kick off with a thorough trimming, shaping, and buffing. Once nails are uniform in appearance and back-scratching prowess, steady hands apply precise strokes to decorate nails with two distinct hues. Technicians spend between 30 and 45 minutes pruning nail beds and giving tips a crisp finish. Ultra-durable Shellac gel polish allows fingers to plug bowling balls and sinking rowboats without fear of chipped nails or dulled colour.
It's possible to walk out of Trix Spa with a completely different look than the one you had when you walked in. That's because the spa offers everything from makeup and updos to threading and waxing. Nail technicians trim and shape nails before applying polish, glitter, or 3-D flower appliques, and henna artists cover skin with intricate designs and maps to the grocery store in case clients run out of lactose-free butter substitute. For a break from the beautification, clients can try a Thai massage, which relieves muscle tension using not only soothing massage strokes but also guided stretching.
