2002 Best Pedicure

Daryl Christopher

From the second your big toe hits the steamy peppermint, rosemary, and lavender foot bath to the final drop of clear topcoat, Daryl Christopher’s signature pedicure is pure nirvana. The exfoliating scrubdown, filing, and alpha hydroxy acids (no medicinal scents here; these are squeezed from passion fruit) are deliciously invigorating. And the massage—noticeably longer and more intense than most—can be followed by a separate paraffin treatment that makes your tired, dry dogs as velvety soft as a baby’s feet.
