Though pearl prospecting is a lucrative labor, excavating mines is tough on delicate finger- and toe-diggers. Today's Groupon soothes your scraggy digits for $25 with a mani-pedi at Y'Sharis Spa. Fellow pearl miners will quake in their mining overalls when they hear tales of your perfectly pampered keratin.
Tucked into the historic Old Town Monrovia district, the boutique-style spa specializes in pampering treatments with an eco-friendly slant (all treatments are formaldehyde free). You'll be treated to Y'Sharis' signature manicure and pedicure ($50 value), featuring a lavender-infused touch. Toes are treated to warm sea-salt soak, followed by an exfoliating treatment and relaxing massage. Ragged cuticles and coarse palms get TLC with a warm bath, relaxing massage, buffing, shaping, and polishing.
Like pajamas at the grocery store, meandering through life with destroyed digits communicates a message of helplessness and laziness. Woo potential employers and paramours with beautifully polished nails and send the alluring signal of independence. If by chance you only let your father shine your nails, you are welcome to apply the Groupon to a more expensive service and pay the difference. Y'Sharis is open Tuesday through Sunday, and Mondays by appointment only. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.

With yellow clapboard siding and a covered front porch, the cottage that houses Y'Sharis Spa puts visitors at ease with its homespun charm. This commitment to calm extends beyond the front door: the spa staff incorporates extra pampering touches into virtually every treatment. In addition to cleansing and moisturizing skin during facials, they soothe senses with aromatherapy oils or soothing paraffin dips; mani-pedis add on everything from warm herbal baths to enzyme scrubs. During reflexology treatments and massages, licensed therapists encourage relaxation more directly by correcting energetic imbalances or loosening tightly knotted muscles. For clients seeking a similar treatment experience at home, Y'Sharis Spa sells its own line of cosmetic products made entirely from natural ingredients and clients' relaxed "ahhs."
