It's the standing date you'll look forward to all week: an hour in the soothing confines of the Park Hyatt's NoMI Spa--just you, your favorite manicurist, a few pastel-hued macarons from NoMI Kitchen and your pretty Deborah Lippmann color.
As we make the switch from winter boots to summer peep toes, NoMI Spa's recently launched Paint Me Pretty club is standing by to keep our digits at their seasonal best. Book a package of weekly manicures or mani-pedi combinations, and over the course of a month, you'll save more than $100. ("The Ten" is three months of manicures for $360; "The Twenty" is three months of manicures and pedicures for $945.)
The convenience of not having to make an appointment every week is nice, but we think the best part of Paint Me Pretty is the perks: Watch TV shows on the spa's iPads and, during your manicure, choose to either solemnly preserve your perfect paint job or dare to make a delicate swipe at that plate of macarons delivered by NoMI's pastry chef--meant for eating now or saving for later.
A cocktail date? We could take it or leave it. But a date that keeps our nails--and our sanity--ready for whatever's next? Book it.
