As a Christmas present to my friend and MMV Photographer Grace, I took her to Pure Nail Bar to get manicures. There they had a flyer promoting their upcoming “12 Days of Customer Appreciation”. Enjoy a free manicure (worth $25) when you purchase a pedicure ($35) from January 5th to 22nd! “HEY,” you might be saying, “that doesn’t add up to 12 days!!” That’s because this offer is only valid on Mondays to Thursdays. Other fine print: this offer cannot be combined with other promotions including vouchers and stamp cards and is not valid for the purchase of gift certificates. So what are you waiting for? Pick up the phone and call any one of their eight locations to book your appointment today! All Pure Nail Bar franchises open from 10am to 7pm.
I’m no beauty expert, but I am a girl with chapped lips.
