Fingernails are the teeth of the hand; without them we could never gnaw on blackboards, bite into itchy backs, or realistically perform alligator shadow puppets. Keep your puppet-makers in fighting condition with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a seasonal mani-pedi (a $70 value) at ZENKA's Manhattan Beach location.
At ZENKA, fusty fingers and petrified pavement pounders receive beautifying and refreshing treatments using all-natural and organic products with a seasonal twist (the mani-pedi for November is pumpkin). Shimmy up to the manicure bar where five-pronged friends mingle over thimblefuls of all-natural Lippmann varnish while recovering from the everyday wear and tear of smart-phone pummeling. The experienced staff at ZENKA never corrals feet in traditional pedicure machines, instead opting to melt customers into cushy, white armchairs while feet soak in eco-friendly resin pedicure bowls.
Located just one block from the beach, ZENKA founder Emi Wayner has designed her salon to be a hideout from busy, urban life. The salon gets its name from the word zen, meaning "relaxing" and ka, meaning "gorgeous flower." This idea of peacefulness and natural beauty permeates the space, allowing customers an experience almost as peaceful as watching a baby dove drink a glass of warm milk.

Yelpers give ZENKA a 3.5-star average:
- Zenka also has an awesome selection of nail color, I tried OPI's 'Catch Me In Your Net' and it lasted a really long time without chipping. It's surprising what a good mani pedi from a good friendly knowledgeable person can do for your day. – OC V.
- …We were comfortably pampered, and we definitely got our money's worth. – Jenna R.
