Best Decadent Mani/Pedi - 2009
Cocoon Urban Day Spa
When it comes to the typical nail spa, you know the drill: A technician who doesn?t want to be there, much less make conversation, gives your hands or feet a cursory stroke before rushing into the treatment (likely smudging your nails in the process) and hurrying you to a drying station before the next client plops into the chair you were just sitting in. But getting your nails done doesn't have to feel like being trotted along a conveyor belt of buffed and polished customers. Rincon Hill?s Cocoon Urban Day Spa, in fact, is the perfect pit stop for some unrushed mani/pedi luxury. Its airy, sun-dappled lounge makes for the most lavish and relaxing hand and foot treatment in town: the Cocooning Signature Mani/ Pedi Combo. Paired with a cup of herbal tea and a plush blanket, the two-hour treatment includes gentle, loving attention to your tips and toes (without the ooky whirlpool foot bath). An exfoliating hand and foot scrub, meticulous nail and cuticle care, steam, paraffin dips, hydrating foot masks, hot towel wraps, and plenty of leisurely, limb-loosening massage make this treatment a delicacy you're not apt to find at your typical, factory-style nail spa.
