A Pure Spa is Pure Bliss
This past Thursday, my friend Melissa and I both got mani-pedis to prepare for an upcoming event (Charity Ball) at Stern. She knew a place (http://www.apurespa.com/) and was nice enough to share it with me! They offer an incredible deal for $23 (standard manicure and pedicure).
I chose to "upgrade" to the $40 package; it included a pedicure with Vitamin E, callous removal and a 10 minute leg/foot massage. I was originally confused and thought it was a back massage (which led me to getting a massage later that night). I normally don't indulge in beauty services too much, but today was an exception.
The service was really top-notch. Because it's freezing cold in NYC now, I had socks and sneakers on. After getting my nails done and drying them for a bit under the lights, the technician applied a sealant to my pedicure and put my feet in a bag. This procedure prevented the awful "freshly painted nails stuck to your socks" ordeal.
