Summer Pedicures



It’s often said that relaxation starts with the feet. Step into bliss this season with one of many summertime pedicures available in Las Vegas. Treat yourself to an Ice Cream Sundae Pedicure at Spa Mio Inside the M Resort. Start with a foot bath made sweet with an ice cream-sized scoop of fizzing “good for your skin” ingredients in chocolate, vanilla or strawberry “flavors.” Follow with a rejuvenating scrub and a moisturizing mask with classic toppings, like marshmallow, caramel or chocolate that smells and sounds good enough to eat. Choose a color like cherry red for a pretty finish. Don’t forget to take home the pink and white “ice-cream sandwich” pumice stone to keep your feet looking good all summer long. How about receiving a classic pedicure that will take you to the Far East? The Zen Pedicure at the Spa at Red Rock, inside Red Rock Casino Resort, is just the ticket. Steep in a green tea-infused bath, followed by a scrub, massage and moisturizing treatment that will calm your feet and leave it hydrated and feeling luxuriously smooth. Then, for feet that have been doing a lot of walking, seek refuge in the exotic Dilo Nut Pedicure at Wet, the Spa and Salon at TI. Imported from the islands of Fiji, the dilo nut’s properties are known to enhance the skin’s repair mechanism while it soothes and nourishes the feet. Follow it with a fresh coat of paint to expose those toes this summer.

If Dietrich or Garbo had a choice for spas today, Eleven Spa Vegas just might have been their sanctuary of preference. Located in Town Square, just south of the Strip, the newly opened Eleven Spa harmoniously combines modern luxury with vintage Hollywood glamour. Eleven Spa exemplifies purity and opulence by its crisp, white d├ęcor, accented by shimmering crystal chandeliers that drape from ceiling to floor.

The 1940s Hollywood theme is elegantly showcased with a backdrop of projected vintage black and white films, a discreetly marked VIP entrance, which leads to the private suite, a sumptuous array of signature treatments for face and body, and a salon by celebrity stylist Ken Paves.

Eleven Spa offers a complimentary hand ritual for all its guests to recall the days of long gloves and when pampering hands was a necessary indulgence. The hydrating ritual is complete with an application of Glow seaweed elixir to give you younger looking hands.

The Paramount Facial is a 120-minute treatment that uses ElevenSkin organic products, including a pineapple enzyme exfoliant and a pure Omega-3 healing serum. You are treated to Eleven Spa's extraordinary hydrofacial machine, which is a microdermabrasion and chemical peel system in one. A facial massage creates a smoother, thinner appearance, and an eye and lip application with SPF moisturizer brings back radiance, and provides protection from the harsh desert climate.

Now, for locals, the Spa is offering relaxation packages with deep savings.
