Nail It

From the headband to the ballet flats, your little girl is always polished. (You know, just in case the Jonas Brothers pop up in her school’s hallway, duh.)

But you could live without the polish on the rug.

Take your teenybopper-in-training for a junior mani or pedi at Julep.

They’ll buff her nails to perfection, moisturize with luscious lotion (chocolate, glitter, or cake), and give her fingers a splash of color. A mani is $18; a pedi’s $28. Or if you get your own hands or feet pampered, through February 28, your kid’s mani (age 8 and under) is free.

Sounds like a deal worth getting your mitts on.
