Well, it’s official: With Thanksgiving this Thursday, the holiday season is finally here. That means it’s time to get ready for friendly get-togethers, company cocktail parties and family festivities. If you’re anything like us, your hands (and feet) are overworked, under-pampered and in need of some serious TLC.
Beyond our nails, the holidays can seriously put a strain on our wallets. Alas, have no fear: Behold our run-down of some of the best manicure and pedicure deals in town for $35 or less.
Fancy it’s not, but Crystal’s Nails will hook you up with a regular mani-pedi combo for $30, and there’s usually no wait. Pro tip: You can bring your own polish colors.
5885 San Felipe
A regular combo mani-pedi starts at $30 at CC, which has working massage chairs and a decent color selection. This spot is open seven days a week from 9 a.m.–7:30 p.m. except Sundays, when hours are 11 a.m.–6 p.m.
A regular combo also runs you $30 at this popular Richmond spot. While it might not be the fanciest inside, there are still massage chairs and a good color selection. Warning: This place is usually very busy for walk-ins, so go during an off-time or be prepared to wait.
3825 Southwest Freeway
Monday through Thursday, Galleria Nails’ No. 2 location runs a mani-pedi happy hour, offering regular combination services for $35 all day from 10 a.m.–7 p.m. Just show the coupon on your phone.
With four locations and complimentary mimosas on weekends (from open to noon), this is your place, if you’re willing to splurge a bit: The cheapest combo deal here starts at $70. While that puts this pick on the pricier side of local offerings, customers rave that Isle PediSpa is worth the extra bucks for its service, massage chairs and gratis accommodations like use of essential oils, herbal neck wraps, refreshment teas and tonics (non-alcoholic after noon) and take-home nail file and cuticle sticks.
