Bring the Kids
For a pedicure that you and your daughter (or sister, cousin, etc.) can enjoy together, head down to Metro Nails in Providence. For only $23 for an adult pedicure and $15 for a children’s one, an afternoon of pampering won’t break the bank. The pedicurists make sure both you and your little one have fun as they tend to your feet and they are very skilled at painting dainty nail designs that she will love. Mother-daughter bonding for a bargain price? What could be better in springtime? 394 Wickenden St, Providence, 490-0101.
Not Just for the Girls
Although most men probably scoff at the idea of going to a nail salon, there’s no reason that guys shouldn’t want to have respectable-looking feet (am I right, ladies?). The Alayne White Spa in Bristol and Providence has a pedicure tailored just for men, called the Dave White Sports Pedicure (after Alayne’s husband). Don’t worry guys, there’s no polish involved if you don’t want it, just scrubbing, buffing, and massage to rejuvenate your feet after a long day of
Make your Feet say “Namaste”
BlueSky SpaWorks in Warwick has the pedicure for women who want to embrace their inner spiritual energies. Their Chakra Balancing Pedicure uses reflexology to stimulate the areas that are connected to the different chakras (or energy centers) of the body. Treatments like this can make you feel like a new person, physically, mentally, and spiritually by unleashing previously under-utilized energies. Other more aromatic options include the invigorating peppermint and luscious tangerine dream pedicures, and lavender eye pillows and neck rolls are provided for comfort during every pedi. 80 Lambert Lind Hwy, Warwick, 739-0836.
Guilt-Free Chocolate Paradise
Invidia Salon & Spa in Portsmouth has combined two of a girl’s favorite things, chocolate and pedicures, into one luxurious Chocolate Fantasy Pedicure. Including a chocolate mint scrub, chocolate whipped cream massage, and chocolate paraffin treatment, this pedicure is decadent and delicious without any of those pesky calories. Another slightly pricier offering from Invidia is the Stone Pedicure, in which they incorporate hot stones into your foot massage to ease tensions and fully relax you. 1050 East Main Rd, Portsmouth, 682-1900.
If you’re out on Block Island to enjoy the water and the weather, make sure to check out the Koru Eco Spa, which is saving the planet, one pedicure at a time. It’s completely eco-friendly, from their natural furniture to their organic uniforms and products, and they are committed to providing customers with a healthy, holistic spa experience that is also good for Mother Earth. The Spa Pedicure includes lemon and honey sugar exfoliation, hot stone massage, and hot towel treatment (plus non-toxic polish). And if you just want the basic pedi, it can be customized with any of those “green” features as well. 232 Water St, Block Island, 466-2308.
