Chefs can elevate culinary classics with high-end ingredients, but their forays into fashion usually result in necklaces made of lobster tails and handbags stuffed with veal cutlets. Let pros expand your fashion palate with today's Groupon to Wink Boutique in Grosse Pointe. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of boutique accessories.
- For $20, you get a Shellac manicure (a $40 value).
Wink Boutique accessorizes outfits and refines fingernails with a flair that earned it a nomination for best manicure and pedicure from Cityvoter in 2010. The boutique's shoe and boot selection offers popular OTBT, Not Rated, and Naughty Monkey footwear that can withstand strolls across hot coals much better than paper hospital slippers ($45–$100). An assortment of jewelry items bedazzles extremities while eschewing brand-name associations ($12–$70), and handbags adorn lonely arms with their heft as well as their sparkling personalities ($50–$100). Luxury-seeking hands can retreat to the comfort of a black leather armchair, where a dry manicure shapes the body's signature digits before gently slathering them with a Shellac application intended to prevent chips for up to two weeks or through several rousing piano solos.
As patrons enter Wink Boutique's doors, they find themselves enveloped by the warm, neutral tones of its walls. The classical display of boutique items charmingly contrasts the thoroughly modern milieu of the manicure station, just as a handlebar mustache contrasts the 17th-century portrait it was scribbled on.
