The Peninsula Spa New York believes your fingers and toes deserve just as much TLC as your body, and naturally this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa has a selection of nail services to choose from. If you’re looking for the works at this New York City urban retreat, try the Holistic Hands (60 minutes for $80) or Holistic Feet (65 minutes for $120) treatments. Both treatments involve hot stone therapy, relaxing acupressure point massage and aromatherapy; fingers and toes are also dipped in paraffin wax and wrapped in mitts to ensure smoothness.
If you need to zap away dry skin, both the Deeply Nourishing Manicure (30 minutes for $65) and Pedicure (60 minutes for $100) deeply exfoliate the hands and feet. Fingers and toes are soaked in mineral sea salts and oil and then deep moisturizing lotion is applied to make hands and feet feel as smooth as silk. For a super cleansing of your digits, the Detox Manicure (30 minutes for $65) removes toxins from the body as hands are exfoliated with salt scrub, then wrapped in warm algae and finally moisturized with white clay hand lotion. The Detox Pedicure (60 minutes for $100) puts toes through the same regimen as the manicure but moisturizing balm leaves are used at the end to leave your feet feeling ultra smooth. Of course, if you want the tried-and-true polishing, there’s always the classic manicure (30 minutes for $35) and classic pedicure (45 minutes for $65).
