Only one in a million pairs of hands are able to successfully break into the business of playing department store pianos, and the rest spend their days hiding in pockets, perpetually searching for change that will never come. Today’s Groupon shines the spotlight on fingers and toe-fingers: for $35, you get a manicure and pedicure at Visual Effects Salon & Spa in Treasure Valley (a $75 value). All appointments must be scheduled ahead with Christine Crawford, one of the salon's licensed cosmetologists at the Dresden Place location.
The salon’s manicure and pedicure treatments come dressed to the nines in nurturing. Before fingers and toes receive their fresh coats of colorful polish, Christine will strip them down and scrub them until she removes dead skin cells, dirt, and all other undignified debris from every nook, cranny, and callus. A foot mask follows the exfoliation treatment, hydrating flippers until they are as soft and supple as a clown nose. As the skilled nail technician concludes the treatments with cuticle trimming, buffing, shaping, and painting, sink into the coddling robo-arms of the salon-provided massage chair.
The pampering professionals at Visual Effects have been making Treasure Valleyans va-va-voomy for more than 12 years, boasting a full list of hair, massage, waxing, and med-spa services in addition to their finger-and-toe-focused offerings. Christine Crawford has been with Visual Effects for six years, coaxing worries from countless wigglers to prevent premature palm aging and immature vase breaking.
Though reviews are limited, Visual Effects Salon & Spa gets a four-star average rating from four InsiderPagers.
- The atmosphere is very warm and just looks like a higher class salon. – Heather F.
Visual Effects Salon & Spa
Although its 6,000 square feet of space hosts 35 dedicated hair and beauty professionals, Visual Effects Salon & Spa is all about one-on-one client attention. That's why each appointment begins with the client's choice of beverage from the full coffee and espresso bar, a fittingly indulgent prelude to a gel pedicure, a Jessners peel, or a full-body massage.
Within the bustling beauty center, stylists draw on Pureology, Moroccanoil, and Brazilian Blowout products to design new dos for men and women, and aestheticians use Caron wax to deforest bodies and vacationing yetis. In between advanced laser and cellulite treatments, the busy staff still finds time to give back, offering its facility as a setting for Protect Idaho Kids' fundraiser commercial.
