Until fire stations were considered fashionable, "painting the town red" referred to the mayor's all-night manicure parties at the community center. Throw yourself a pampering gala like the olden days with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a Shellac manicure and hot-lava pedicure at Vie Fitness & Spa (a $125 total value).
Vie's experienced nail technicians pamper phalanges and coat nails in colorful polishes. In the nearly one-hour manicure (a $45 value), each paw absorbs a soothing blend of antioxidants, nourishing vitamins, essential oils, and The Essential Dan Fogelberg. Colorful coats of Shellac nail polish give nails an instant makeover and a long-lasting, chip-resistant shield. The hot-lava pedicure (an $80 value) paradoxically hydrates and soothes toes, coating fleshy sock stands in a peppermint balm and a detoxifying team of volcanic clay and hot towels.
Vie Fitness & Spa
As if inspired by the visitors stretching at the fitness center below, a glass spiral staircase extends to the high ceiling, where skylights illuminate the floor below. Heather DuPuis designed Vie Fitness & Spa as an oasis for healthy living, blending health-club amenities and fitness services with a light, airy atmosphere and soaring architecture.
Certified trainers keep clients engaged in an active lifestyle through programs tailored to each individual's goals and lifestyle. In barre classes, an amalgamation of Pilates, ballet, and strength exercises set to up-tempo music work to tighten abs and thighs, and spinning classes test students' endurance while reminding them of their first bicycle's eventual theft.
An onsite juice bar refuels bodies, which stay refreshed with the boutique shop's designer water bottles and hand-poured Illume candles. To unwind after a taxing workout, patrons can stop by the facility spa for a massage or facial or head to the locker rooms equipped with fluffy towels and Pure Fiji bath products with which to wash the towels.
