Being Pampered: Wet Paint Nail Spa & Corbu

I don’t get my nails done often, but I do appreciate a good manicure.  The other day as I was sitting at Wet Paint Nail Spa waiting for my nails to dry, a very pregnant mama or mama-to-be waddled into the spa.  I reminisced about how I felt I had to have a pedicure before my first child was born. It is a little ridiculous perhaps to think that while you’re screaming bloody murder with your legs in anything but a “ladylike position” that it matters how well groomed your feet are.  Trust me it does!  The doctors and nurses probably don’t notice if you’re wearing “Eiffel for This“, “Whose Spinning Tonight” or  “Let’s Plié” but at a time when as a woman you might not exactly feel put together or in control of anything, having scrubbed, smoothed and polished feet and toenails can give you the illusion calm, cool, “collectedness”, or some small bit of control over your body.

The great thing about Wet Paint Nail Spa for the mom to be is that they are an extremely hygienic and health conscious crew and they use products such as Zoya polish that is free of toluene, formaldehyde, DBP (phthalates) and camphor.

So this whole “getting a pedicure before giving birth thing”, got me thinking a little more about mothers and motherhood.  One of my challenges and the challenge of many moms is to find time or to make time for ourselves.  Especially with a newborn or infant, this can be really hard to do, and admittedly seven years and two children later it doesn’t seem to be any easier. The solution?  Corbu Spa‘s new membership program!  Some women and men (my husband is among them) have regular appointments whether it is to the hair salon, nail spa, massage, facials, whatever it may be.  Somehow having a regular appointment makes it that much easier to keep.  Club Corbu not only helps you keep a regular appointment but it’s an amazing deal.

Okay, I know what you’re thinking, “It’s in Harvard Square!  Parking is such a nightmare.”  Except, The Charles Hotel and Corbu have a parking garage under the spa and whether you are a part of Club Corbu or you are just getting your nails done, 3 hours  (new ownership) 2 hours parking is included.  You might even be able to sneak in breakfast, lunch, an early evening cocktail at the bar at Henrietta’s Table, Rialto or Noir before or after your treatment.  So what I’m trying to say is, whether you are a mom to be, have a newborn or teenagers with one foot out the door, a little Corbu time would do any mom or dad a lot of good and it is not just about the shiny nails.
