Local Love: Great Nails & Spa
I met my new friend Lia last Monday at Buyosphere's BeautyXBar brunch, and she showed me her sparkly shellacked nails and told me of this magical place where men massaged your feet and punched your shins for an hour at a time. She warned me that a manicure would come with arm punching so brutal it'd leave bruises and that the massage would reach so high your armpits would get some action... all for under $40. This sounded simultaneously weird and awesome (i.e. my kind of place). I had to check it out for myself.
