Without nails, hard-to-reach spots would forever itch and digits would be too delicate to put on finger-puppet renditions of Die Hard. Appreciate your multifunctional features with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a deluxe manicure at Xpressions of Beauty (a $25 value).
Xpressions of Beauty's owner Alethea McGhee employs her years as a manicurist and nail-technology instructor to primp digit tips with the utmost care. Deluxe manicures begin as the manicurist meticulously trims nails, buffs them to a satiny sheen, and teaches them to speak French. An exfoliating sugar scrub and relaxing massage then rejuvenate weary arms from hand to elbow. Fingers find moisture after a quick soak in warm paraffin, which imbues hands with a radiant glow that matches the crystalline polish at their tips and the melted mercury clutched within their fists.
